Before you begin, please make sure you meet these criteria:

  • You need a working domain (no localhost) that is accessible from the Internet and is not password-protected.
  • Your domain is a root domain or subdomain (example.com or sub.example.com), and not a subdirectory (https://example.com/shop/). 
  • Your WordPress is publishing REST API via the path /wp-json .

Step 1: Install Judge.me Product Reviews plugin

  • Search for "Judge.me" and click Install Now.

  • When the installation finishes, click Activate.
  • You'll now see Judge.me plugin on the left sidebar, where you can access your Judge.me settings and reviews.

Step 2: Install Judge.me widgets

When you install Judge.me, the preview badge and review widget are installed automatically on WooCommerce default product pages and collection pages.
