Using Trusted Shops with Shopify



Add & install plugin

As a Shopify user, the free Trusted Shops plugin "Trustbadge: Reviews Toolkit" is available to you. You can download it here in the Shopify App Store. Install this by clicking on "Add app".

Notice: If you have previously integrated the Trustbadge manually, please remove the manual integration before continuing.




Alternatively to the link above, you can also go directly from the Shopify backend to the Shopify App Store. To do this, select the "Apps" menu item in the main navigation on the left-hand side of the screen and then click on the "Visit the Shopify App Store" button in the top right-hand corner.




Search for "Trustbadge" within the App Store using the search function. Now click on the "Trustbadge: Reviews Toolkit" app within the search results.




This will take you to the overview of the app, which is linked above. Click the "Add app" button.




Click on "Install App" in the window that now opens. By doing this you are accepting the Terms and conditions for use and adding the plugin to your shop.




You have now successfully installed the Trusted Shops plugin in Shopify. Next, we will show you how you can display the Trustbadge® technology and configure it according to your individual requirements:

Show Trustbadge, integrate guarantee & collect shop reviews

The unique Trustbadge® technology makes it so simple to collect, manage and display your customer reviews in your shop. You can also easily integrate your trustmark and offer the guarantee.

If the plugin does not open automatically after installation, click on the menu item "Apps" in the main navigation of your Shopify backend. In the following overview you will find the plugin "Trustbadge: Reviews Toolkit" under "Installed Apps". Select this to get to the configuration menu.




Click "Edit" in the "Settings" area within the "General Configuration" section.




Then you can enter your Trusted Shops ID (starting with X...) in the input field "Trustedshops ID", which you received with your welcome e-mail. Doing this will integrate the Trustbadge into your shop.




By default the Trustbadge is displayed in the lower right corner of your shop. By entering a pixel number in the "Y offset" field, you have the option of moving the Trustbadge on the right edge of the screen upwards. This is useful, for example, if important elements of your shop would otherwise be covered by the Trustbadge. Then click on "Save".




If you want to display the Trustbadge without star ratings, this can be done by making adjustments in the advanced configuration.

Notice: The advanced configuration offers more options, but also requires advanced knowledge of code.

First activate the advanced configuration by clicking the "Off" button in "Advance mode". The button then displays "On" and an input field appears. Now click on the link "here" below the input field to generate the default code, which you can then modify.




Whether the Trustbadge should be displayed with or without star ratings can be determined using the code line 'variant'.

If you want to display the Trustbadge without star ratings, replace the existing code line ˈvariantˈ by the following:


ˈvariantˈ: ˈdefaultˈ, /* default, reviews, custom, custom_reviews */


For the Trustbadge variant with star ratings, please use the following code line:


ˈvariantˈ: ˈreviewsˈ, /* default, reviews, custom, custom_reviews */




Copy the customised code completely into the red input field in the plugin and click "Save".




The plugin indicates the successful integration of the Trustbadge. If it is correctly integrated, you will find the message "Enabled" under "Badge Status" in the "General Configuration" section.




Once you have completed these steps, you can now test the function of your Trustbadge. To do this, place a test order in your shop. When the Trustcard appears at the end of your order, you have successfully integrated the Trustbadge into your shop, the guarantee is active and shop reviews will be collected.



Collect and view Product Reviews

Notice: To collect and display product reviews, you must first log in to your My Trusted Shops account here

If you have booked Product Reviews, they are collected automatically. You do not need to adjust any settings in the plugin for this.


Product reviews

To display the collected Product Reviews in your shop, first click on "Edit" within the plugin in the "Settings" area in the "Product Reviews Configuration" section.




This opens the configuration page. First activate the function "Display Product Reviews" so that the button is set to "On".




This allows you to integrate the Product Reviews into your product detail pages.




In order to adapt the presentation of the Product Reviews to your individual needs, you can change additional configurations using the other input fields in the plugin. For example, use the "Intro Text" field to enter a short introductory text (e.g. "What our customers say"). You can also use the "Border Colour" field to change the border colour. To do this, either enter the hexadecimal value of the desired colour into the input field or select the colour using the colour field. Finally, you can choose the language of the Product Review Sticker in the shop using the "Language" drop-down menu.




The introductory text entered using "Intro Text" is displayed on the product detail page within the Product Review Sticker under the product name.




Notice: If you use a custom template, it may be necessary to enter the ID of the corresponding HTML element in which the Product Review Sticker is to be displayed. You can do this using "Append Id".




Finally, click "Save" to save your changes. Afterwards, the successful activation of the Product Review display is shown in the plugin under "Product Reviews Status".



Optimised sending of review requests

By default, review requests are automatically sent by Trusted Shops after seven days. If you want to adjust this period, e.g. because your products have a longer delivery time, you can do this here in your My Trusted Shops account.


The Review Collector: Receive ratings from existing customers

Notice: By using the Review Collector, you confirm that you have received the prior consent of your customers to transfer their data to Trusted Shops for the purpose of sending review requests by e-mail.

The Review Collector is a way to collect a variety of reviews with little manual effort. Shopify can help you to prepare the necessary customer data.

Select the menu item "Orders" in the main navigation of your Shopify backend. This opens an overview in which you click on "Export" above.




A pop-up window will now open. In it, select the option "Orders by date" and define a period for which you want to export your orders (e.g. the past two months). Then select the option "CSV for Excel, Numbers or other spreadsheet programs" and confirm your export by clicking the button "Export orders".




You will then receive a CSV file by e-mail. Save it and open it in a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel. Now create a new, empty file in your spreadsheet program in addition to the CSV file you’ve already opened. Copy the columns "Email", "OrderNumber", "FirstName" and "LastName" in exactly this order from the CSV file into the new file. Then delete the first row with the column titles from the new file and save the newly created table as an XLS or XLSX file on your computer.

You have now prepared your customer data in Shopify. Now log in to your My Trusted Shops account here to import this data into the Review Collector and send the review requests. This article explains what you need to do to achieve this.
