What permission do you need to give Judge.me?

  • To help you achieve the maximum results, we need permissions to access and take specific actions on your Shopify store.
  • Since Shopify doesn't allow us to accept permissions step-by-step, we ask for all permissions during the installation process. We are approved by Shopify for those permissions that require review and verification. You can find Shopify's general information about app permissions here.
  • Here is the list of all permissions we require:

View Shopify account data

Judge.me Product Reviews will be able to access data such as your Shopify account email addresses, phone numbers, and locations. We use this information for example for communicating with you.

Manage products

This includes products and collections. We use this information for example for our review request or more advanced features such as product groups, product group automation, shop groups (), or the Google Product Reviews XML feed.

View orders

This includes all order details for all time.

Judge.me Product Reviews will be able to access data such as customer names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, physical addresses, geolocations, IP addresses, and browser user agents.

We use this information for example for scheduling review requests for your buyers or verify that a reviewer is actually a buyer ('Verified Buyer Badge').

Shopify has reviewed Judge.me Product Reviews and verified that it needs access to all past and future orders to provide value to you.

We need this permission to verify your reviews and send review requests to your former buyers.

View customers

Judge.me Product Reviews will be able to access data such as customer names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and physical addresses.

Manage other data

We use this permission so that we will be able to create discount codes for you for our review incentives.



What changes will we make to your Shopify theme file?


Once you install our app, we'll access your Shopify theme file and add Judge.me code snippets to your liquid files. These code snippets will activate the Judge.me widgets (star ratings, review form, carousel, etc. on your Shopify store.

Example of the code snippets that we'll add:

  • sections/judgeme_carousel_section.liquid
  • snippets/judgeme_all_reviews.liquid
  • snippets/judgeme_core.liquid
  • snippets/judgeme_widgets.liquid
  • templates/page.judgeme_all_reviews.liquid

Once the process is done, you'll receive an email notification.

These code snippets need to be added again when you change your theme. To enable the automatic installation upon theme change, please go to Advanced > Advanced Settings > Theme Change Re-Installation.

Once you change your theme, we'll install the Judge.me widgets again for you, and you don't need to take any actions.

If you don't enable the automatic installation, please contact support@judge.me if you change your theme and want us to reinstall the Judge.me widgets.
