Filtering products by review rating
These days, a review system is vital for Shopify stores because product reviews and ratings help online shoppers to get more informed with real-life insight and make better purchase decisions. There are various product review apps from the Shopify App Store that allow you to collect customer reviews and display them on product pages.
Our app can help your Shopify store to display a filter that lets your customers filter products by their star ratings. To set up that filter, you simply need to integrate your current product review app with our app and then create a filter option based on your store's rating data.

Integrate your product review app with Boost AI Search & Discovery
First, to let our app sync with your rating data, your current product review app needs to be integrated with our app.
To integrate your product review app with Boost AI Search & Discovery:
- From the app’s admin, go to Tool > Integration. Your product review app is located in the first section.
Detect your current product review app and toggle the button to switch it on to integrate the app with Boost AI Search & Discovery automatically.
Note: Some product review apps, such as Yotpo, and Stamped.io, will ask you to enter the app key public to allow our app to sync with your rating data. You can contact the product review app to get the key.
- Click Continue in the Integration data notice pop-up.
- Wait about 3 minutes to let the sync process complete.
Note: Your current product review app will add Metafields to our app after the integration (Except Yotpo, and Stamped.io) for the purpose of synchronization and we will not use those Metafields to create a filter for product reviews. When the product review app is updated or disabled in your Shopify store, those Metafields will be deleted automatically.
To prevent unexpected data loss, we suggest that you don't remove those Metafields when the product review app is still active.
