|rating (Required)||Valid values are 1/2/3/4/5. Use whole numbers only.||5|
|author (Required)||The reviewer’s name. The name will appear on the review exactly as listed here.||John D.|
|The reviewer's email address. If you don’t have the customer’s email address leave this field empty.||[email protected]|
|body (Required)||The review text. All reviews must include text.||Great shirt, I loved it!|
|created_at (Required)||The review submission date. Must be in the following format: YYYY-MM-DD.||2020-01-09|

Tip: If you don’t have a public photo URL for one of your review’s images, you can create one by following these instructions:
- Save the relevant image to your computer.
- Inside your Shopify Admin Settings, go to Files.
- Click "Upload files".
- Choose one of the images and upload it.
- Copy its photo URL from the "URL" column once it has been uploaded.
