Feature Details.
The purpose of Rate This module is to allow customers (who have signed in) to provide their rating/review of products offered in the store. The module allows a customer one review on each product they choose to rate/review. They can go back and change their rating and review as it is controlled by their login and password. The average customer rating is displayed graphically with whole or half images. This graphical display can be on the product screen, the category list screen or both. The default images are hearts, but the mall owner can substitute any graphics he/she wants. Customers can also leave narrative comments (# testimonials) about products they wish to review.

All customers, not just those logged in, are able to view the ratings and reviews made by other customers.

In the event that a malicious customer enters prank ratings, the admin interface allows removal of all ratings by specific customers. Since the module has an email alert feature (if turned on by the store owner), you will know what ratings are being left for your products. There is also a report generator to list all ratings on a specific product code or all ratings by a specific customer.

You can also display and/or delete the ratings of a specific product from the individual product edit screen.

Using a render token, place the Rate This button on the product page so that it better fits your desired look. You can limit the number of reviews which appear on the product page with a "more" link to show all. You can also require admin approval before the rating/review is displayed to customers visiting your store. Admin reports can be displayed to screen, exported to flat file, and optionally email the flat file to the store. The admin rating reports which display the login have a hot link to the customer login so you can quickly view who the rater is.

Configure through admin, the text and tokens in both the display and prompt for this module as they are customizable templates which can replace the default layouts. You can allow the customer to include their email, name, or location (automatically filled in from their customer account) along with the reviews, depending on the demographic you choose to allow in the store. As example, a typical rating might be

Great tool and simple to install

The module currently fully supports the mivasql configuration of MIVA Merchant 5. It also supports MySQL as long as load balancing has the data stored on the single MySQL server and permissions are set correctly on the data directories. This would be the case in most of the server setups. If you are using Merchant 5.x and your host is web.com, you will not be able to use this module due to the way they configure their servers. There are no known issues with other hosts.
