Instant x Opinew: Enhance your product pages with product reviews

For Shopify merchants looking to boost their conversion rate, utilizing user-generated content is a must. Customers rely on this content as part of their purchasing decision, to learn more about a product and how others experience it. In fact, retailers can expect an overall conversion rate lift of 40% once they add more than 5 reviews to a product in their online store, according to Opinew. With the right tools, adding user-generated content like reviews and ratings to your Shopify pages can be done with ease, in a matter of minutes. 

This step-by-step guide will teach you how to leverage customer reviews to enhance your Shopify product pages, by using Opinew (a product reviews app) and Instant (a no-code page builder). 

What is Opinew?
