I don't even care bc the only times igaf about a review is when it's a generic/no-brand item you're gambling on

TLDR: Bots ;)
So not true! They stole them from other sites.
Because of this, Everyshop partnered with global review aggregator TestFreaks to provide product reviews.

TestFreaks was previously a consumer-facing website which users could access to see what consumers and critics thought of various products.

Why does this come as a surprise??? Incredible connection has been using this functionality for ages.

Many of these reviews are scraped from Amazon and various other international sources.

In my view reviews like these are unethical, simply because it is not representative of your service.
Besides that, there are different batches for most products, some batches could be good, some could be bad. Having a few thousand positive reviews but selling a bad batch is worse than having no reviews

I dont think anyone cares really.
Everyshop must be paying really well though, seems they are the new multichoice around here.

Product reviews? As long as they are representative of the good, bad, and ugly I don't really care where they came from as long as they're there. Without them consumers suffer more than anyone.

At least with Takealot you know the reviews are from local buyers.

Only downside there is that it seems like only 50% of negative reviews get published.

On top of that anyone can write reviews, and there's no way to distinguish between people who purchased the item on Takealot and people who didn't.

The reviews are about the products the , not their service.

My bad, I didn’t know it was two separate customer experiences. The customer journey is fiction after all.

I am sorry to inform you, but product experiences vary from every point of purchase. If you are happy with someone else’s experience from Amazon, Costco, Richer Sounds, Micro Center, etc., sure just know that it is not reflective of the shopper experience.

What I am saying is, the reviews aren’t organic no matter how much journalism or spin goes into it. It is a false customer journey because it is reflective of another seller.

Aggregator services have a place, syndicated content is purposeful, but we are dealing here with different regional markets, warranty and terms of service. It is a bloody awesome service for dropshipping, if direct from the source, or affiliate marketers, or is this inclusive of EveryShop?

All which brings me back to fulfilment which is the service of EveryShop.

So, where may I publicly review EveryShop on their own site?
