Judge.me allows you to import reviews from a supported previous reviews app without having to change the CSV file as well as import reviews from AliExpress.

Additionally, you can import from an unsupported source with a CSV file following our template. In this article, we will show you how to prepare the CSV file and make the import.


Step 1: Download the CSV file

You can download our CSV file for reviews using the link below.

Download CSV file

To edit the file, you can:

  1. Login to Google Sheet and create a new sheet.
  2. Click File > Import > Upload and select the file you downloaded above.
  3. In Import location, choose Replace current sheet and check the box Convert text to numbers, dates, and formulas.
  4. Click Import data.

Tip!
Google Sheet is free, and compatible with most devices, and it saves the file as CSV without adding unsupported characters to the content.

Step 2: Fill in the information for the reviews

Here are the references for each CSV column:

titleoptionaltitle of the review
bodyrequired, has a fallbackbody of the review (up to 5000 characters)
  • If the body is empty, we will use the review title instead. The title of this review will then be left blank.
  • If both the title and the body are empty, the import will fail.)
ratingrequiredrating of the review (1-5)
review_dateoptionalthe date when the review was created, in dd/mm/yyyy format.
  • If the date is empty, the review will have the current date.
reviewer_name
optionalname of the reviewer. If the name is empty, "Anonymous" will be used instead.
reviewer_email
optionalemail of the reviewer. If the email is empty, a unique fake email will be used instead.
product_id
product_handle
either is requiredYou just need to fill in either the product_id or produt_handle. Here's how to find these values:

If both product_id and product_handle are empty, the reviews will be imported as shop reviews.

reply
optionalthe public reply to the review (if there is any)
picture_urls
optionalURLs of the images in the review. 
  • Supported .png, .jpg, .If there is more than one picture, please separate the URLs by a comma (https://picture1, https://picture2).
  • We accept up to 5 pictures per review. If there are more than 5 URLs, we will only take the first 5.
ip_addressoptionalthe IP address of the review (e.g. 34.203.165.149). We automatically calculate the location (city, country, country code) based on this IP address.


If you want to import answers for your customized questions in each review, please create additional columns in your CSV file with the header CFYour Question. We import custom forms as text only so we are unable to import multiple options.

Step 3: Upload the file to Judge.me

  • When you're done editing the Google Sheet, you can download it as a CSV file by choosing File > Download > Comma Separated Value (.csv).

  • In Judge.me admin, choose Import & Export > Import reviews.
  • Then in From Judge.me Template (Advanced), choose the file you've downloaded and click Import reviews.

Step 4: Review the results

After you upload the CSV file, we will process the file in the background and send a notification email with the details to all email addresses listed in Settings > Review request > Admin Notifications.

In this email, you can check how many reviews have been imported, how many have failed, and the reason they failed.

You will see the successfully imported reviews in the reviews dashboard after a few minutes.
