1. Limitation of “Email” function in Magento 2 default.
As you may already know, the default Magento only allows sending customer emails to confirm orders, invoices, shipments etc, but not to remind customers to leave reviews about their purchased products. Thus, in order to request for feedbacks, store owners may have to send emails or messages manually. This will costs lots of time and effort, and the effectiveness cannot be measured and ensured. The lack of customer reviews could be a big disadvantage for any business since customers are now relying more on reviews to make purchase decision.
2. An effective tool to send requests and encourage customers to write product reviews in Magento 2
In order to help store owners overcome difficulty in collecting feedbacks from customers, BSSCommerce has developed an advanced extension – Review Reminder for Magento 2. No more sending one email at a time or filling customers’ email list manually, store owners now can send multiple emails to many customers automatically just by configuring in the backend. Furthermore, admin can even encourage customers to write reviews by sending them coupons as a reward. Having a good number of product reviews will increase the customer interaction as well as store reputation, which will lead to a boost in sales performance.
Following that, you can also consider how to manage Magento 2 reviews, including add, delete, etc to avoid negative reviews.
