Do you want to add star ratings to WooCommerce product pages?

WooCommerce is a popular e-commerce platform that powers countless online stores. One of the key features is the ability to display product ratings and reviews, which can help increase customer trust and satisfaction.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to add star ratings to your WooCommerce products and why it’s a valuable addition to your website. Whether you’re new to WooCommerce or a seasoned pro, this guide will help you make the most of this powerful platform.

Why Add Star Ratings to WooCommerce?

Adding star ratings to your WooCommerce products can give potential customers a quick and easy way to gauge the quality of your offerings.

Around 98% of shoppers read customer reviews before making purchase decisions. So, adding product reviews and star ratings to your WooCommerce store can combat buyer hesitation and increase sales and conversions.

More importantly, WooCommerce product reviews can appear in search results if you use the correct Schema markup and search engine optimization (SEO). Search engines like Google may display your star reviews as snippets that potential customers can see on the search results page:

With that in mind, let’s dive in and learn how to add star ratings to WooCommerce.

First, we’ll show you how to enable star ratings inside the WooCommerce plugin settings. We’ll then show you how to customize star ratings with a powerful WordPress plugin.

How to Add Star Ratings in WooCommerce

To add star ratings to WooCommerce products, you’ll first need to enable them in the plugin settings.

We’ll assume that you already have WooCommerce live on your WordPress website. However, if you need help setting it up, you can follow this guide on installing WooCommerce for beginners.

You can find the star ratings option by going to WooCommerce » Settings from your WordPress dashboard and clicking the Products tab at the top.

  • Enable star rating on reviews
  • Require star ratings

After enabling the settings you want, click the Save Changes button.

Star ratings are now enabled on your WooCommerce store. Next, you’ll want them to appear on your product pages which will require enabling a few more settings.

How to Customize Star Ratings on WooCommerce Product Pages

WooCommerce is fantastic for setting up your online store, but it’s missing several features you’ll need to improve user experience and ultimately increase sales. For example, the plugin doesn’t offer an easy way to customize your shop and make it more user-friendly.
