Yotpo Selected As Magento’s Bundled UGC Provider
Nikki LanzerJanuary 23, 2020
A recent survey showed that over 75% of online shoppers read customer reviews before deciding to buy the product or continue browsing. Due to concern about online scams and receiving fake or low-quality products, most eCommerce users seek out genuine content from real customers who can provide social proof through written reviews, photos, or videos.
Since user-generated content (UGC) can often be the most influential factor in a buyer’s purchasing decision, eCommerce sellers must make UGC an essential part of their overall marketing strategy. After recognizing this need and testing a variety of solutions, Magento announced at this year’s MagentoLive Europe event that Yotpo has been selected as the platform’s bundled UGC provider.
What is Yotpo?
Yotpo was founded in 2011 by Tomer Tagrin and Omri Cohen after Tagrin bought a subpar camera due to fake reviews on the product’s web page. Tagrin’s initial frustration with untrustworthy UGC ultimately led to the highly advanced solutions that Yotpo provides for merchants today.
With Yotpo, online sellers can efficiently collect and display UGC, launch loyalty programs, encourage customer advocates, and boost their referrals while improving their company’s transparency. Due to its range of customizable options and solutions, Yotpo is trusted by some of the world’s fastest-growing brands, such as Steve Madden, GoPro, ThirdLove, Esurance, MVMT, and other highly successful businesses.
Benefits for Magento Users
Sellers on Magento 2.3.3 can enjoy quick and easy implementation now that Yotpo’s widgets and scripts are pre-installed on the Magento platform. Along with having the benefit of having a built-in UGC provider, a few major advantages of this integration also include:
