Loox Reviews

Add social proof to your funnels with customer reviews and ratings.

This article shows you how to add Loox Reviews to your products in a funnel. When you complete these steps, Funnelish can pull reviews and ratings from your Shopify store into the funnel step.

Loox Reviews is a freemium app. You can display star ratings for free but need a paid account to access the other widget functionalities. You can read the Loox developer document and learn how to enable all the widget functions on your site.

Installing the app on Shopify

The first step is to install the Loox app on your Shopify store.

  1. Log in to you the Shopify App Store.

  2. Type Loox Product Reviews into the search bar.

You'll need to copy and paste some text in this step. We suggest you open a Notepad file to save code as an in-between step.

Find and copy the product ID for the item in your Shopify store.

  1. Go to your Shopify store dashboard.

  2. Click Products on the side menu.

  3. Click the product you want to link with Loox on your funnel.

  4. Go to the address bar.

  5. Copy the product number in the URL. It's the last series of numbers after the slash (/).

  6. Paste the product ID into a Notepad file.

Customizing a snippet

  1. Copy this snippet and paste it into a Notepad file.

<script async src="//loox.io/widget/loox.js?shop=STORE.myshopify.com"></script>
  1. Replace the word STORE in the snippet with your store name.

Make sure there are no spaces after the "=" sign.

Pasting the snippet

  1. Copy the edited snippet of your Notepad file. (The one with your store name)

  2. In Funnelish, go to the Funnels tab in your header menu.

  3. Open a funnel and go to the step that has the product you want to link to Loox.

  4. Click the Edit page button.

  5. Go to the top left corner and click the More actions icon (the three dots <…>).

  2. Paste the edited snippet. (The one with your store name)

  1. Click Save changes.

  2. Click the Save changes button in the top right corner of your page.

Add custom HTML

The last step is to drag and drop the Custom HTML element into your canvas. This element is the one that will display customer reviews and ratings on the step.

You need to decide where to place the Loox information. In this example, we place the star rating under a product image.

We use a two-column row to hold the Custom HTML component. You could use a different structure.

  1. Place a Section component on the canvas under the product image.

  2. Select the two-column row option.

3. Select a cell.

4. Place the Custom HTML component inside the cell.

5. Go to the left panel.

6. Click the Edit custom HTML button.

  1. A new pop-up window will display. Before adding something, follow the steps below to edit the code for your corresponding product.

Customizing a snippet

Follow the steps below to place customer star ratings in the funnel.

  1. Paste this code into Notepad.

<div class="loox-rating" data-fetch data-id="XXXXXXXXXX"></div>
  1. Replace the XXXXX in the snippet with the Shopify product ID (the ID you saved in Notepad in the previous step).

Make sure there are no spaces between the quotation marks and numbers.

3. Click the Save changes button.

4. Click Save changes again on the funnel dashboard.

5. Click Preview to see the funnel step and customer reviews.

If the ratings do not appear in Preview mode, you might need to whitelist your funnel domain. Go to your Shopify store and open the Loox settings page. Learn more.

Nothing displays on the funnel step if your Shopify product has no ratings.

Another product

To quickly add Loox display code to another product:

  1. Copy the Custom HTML component.

  2. Paste the component into a different cell location.

  3. Replace the product ID with the number corresponding to the new product.

  4. Click Save changes.
