Display your product reviews
When installing Loox on your store for the first time, it automatically integrates with your live theme, displaying the Loox Product Reviews and Rating widgets on your product pages. We also offer a built-in integration with every store page on Shopify's Online Store 2.0 themes.
This means you can add several of our widgets to any page on your store using the theme editor's drag-and-drop system.
To add a Loox widget to your store's page, follow the steps below:
Inside the Shopify Themes menu, click "Customize" to access the Theme Editor:
Click "Add section" and select the Loox widget you'd like to display on your page:
Drag the widget's app block and drop it where you would like it to appear:
- Click "Save".

Offer a discount for photo / video reviews
Offer a discount for reviews that include photos or videos to encourage your customers to share their experiences and build social proof for your brand.
To offer your customers a discount for photo or video reviews:
- Inside the "Collect reviews" settings section, go to "Discount for photo / video reviews".
Toggle on "Enable discount for photo/video":
Select whether you would like to offer a single discount or different discounts for photo and video reviews:
- Select the amount you would like to offer your customers for photo and video reviews:
Choose from two types of discounts:
- Percentage (%): For example, 15% off.
- Fixed: For example, $15 off (your store's currency will be automatically used).
Once you select the discount type you want to offer your customers, you can adjust its settings.
The settings are:
- Single code for all customers - create a discount code within Shopify and apply it as the code given for photo/video reviews through Loox.
- Unique code for each review - generate a new unique code for every customer that submits a photo/video review.
- Offer discounts for reviews from:
- On-site & review requests - Give the discount to both reviewers who submit a review on your store and those who submit a review through a review request.
- Review requests only - Offer the discount to verified customers who submit a review through a review request only.
- Discount code expires after - Set an expiration date for the discount codes.
To learn more about how you can adjust your Loox discounts, go to Offering a Discount for Photo/Video Reviews.
Set up your Review request email's timing
Getting your customers to leave product reviews is essential to building social proof throughout your store.
Sending these emails at the right time is important; if you send them too soon, there is a lower chance of your customers submitting their reviews, and if you wait too long, you might miss out on the initial excitement of a new product.
To set your Review request email's timing, follow the steps below:
Inside the "Collect reviews" settings section, go to "Review request timing":
- Select your email's timing from the dropdown.
You can set the timing between 1 to 70 days after:
- The customer's Purchase
- Fulfillment of the customer's order.
- Delivery of the package.

Customize your Branding
Your Loox widgets and emails can be customized to fit seamlessly with your brand inside the "Branding" settings section. Our customization options are available directly from the app and do not require any customization of your theme's code.
The following customization options are available:
- Logo - Add your store's logo to your Loox emails and referral landing pages.
- Corner Radius - Adjusts the shape of your widgets' corner radius.
- Rating icons - Select the icons that represent ratings on your store. You can go stars (the Loox default) or select your own.
- Widgets font - Choose the font used on your Loox widgets.
- Enable email banners - Add a default banner image to display on all your Loox emails. You can use our default email banner or upload your own.
- Appearance - Design the emails Loox sends on your behalf to match your brand's look and feel. You can select our default options - "Boxed" and "Modern", or select "Custom" to customize each of your emails' elements.
