Judge.me vs Yotpo
Looking for an affordable Yotpo alternative? Judge.me is the cost-effective yet feature rich reviews app!
Grow with Judge.me without paying more
You can add and customize questions to your reviews, send manual product review requests as well as synchronize reviews across products groups and syndicate reviews across multiple shops.
You will have to pay extra for these features in Yotpo. Video reviews and cross-shop review syndication are only available in their Premium plan (custom pricing, billed annually), while Q&A is only available in their Prime plan (from $299/month) and above.
Our free plan is genuinely free, and our Awesome plan packs a punch!
At Judge.me, we are excited to help you grow! Your reviewers can include photos and videos in reviews for free. Meanwhile, you need to pay at least $19 to have photo reviews in Yotpo. Both our Forever Free and Awesome ($15/month) plans offer unlimited volume of orders and review requests. Meanwhile, Yotpo limits below 50 orders per month on their Free plan, 50-800 orders on their Growth plan ($19 - $249/month), and the price you pay scales with the volume of orders.
Small mistakes by your reviewers? We have a process to handle corrections.
You can also make minor edits to reviews (for instance, if a reviewer accidentally misspells a product name), and then submit these corrections to the reviewer for approval.
You have 24/7 access to fantastic customer support
You can always contact us via email or live chat on both Forever Free and Awesome plan ($15/month). We have a dedicated team ready to help you 24/7 with onboarding and set up, as well as additional customizations you may require. Meanwhile, Yotpo only offers live chat support on their Growth plan ($19 - $249/month).
We’ll be upfront and tell you our weak spots
Yotpo’s Growth plan includes AI-based review highlights and sentiment analysis to identify positive/negative reviews (but perhaps you don’t really need these features anyway ;)

Frequently asked questions
We can stylize your review widget and everything Judge.me related so your previous look is preserved. Just provide us as many details as possible, for example, screenshots and colors. Another option is to let us setup Judge.me before you uninstall Yotpo. Then, we can mimic the look by examining your current settings.
Sure! During onboarding, we will ask you to choose which theme you would like us to work on. After you install the Judge.me app, choose "Installation by Judge.me", decide which widgets you want, and lastly, tell us if you want us to add the widgets on your live theme, or pick an unpublished theme of your choice. You will get a chance to preview your pages, and add any additional customization instructions for us. Of course, you can also manually install our widgets by adding shortcode to which theme you prefer.
The stars may disappear during the transition period, but this often happens so quickly that this often goes unnoticed. To minimize any disruption, we recommend that you let us setup Judge.me before uninstalling Yotpo or any other competitor app, so there is a short period of overlap to make the transition smoother.
When you export your existing reviews from another app like Yotpo, most of the time, the link to your existing review pictures is included as part of the CSV. This means that these pictures will automatically be linked to your existing reviews when you upload the CSV into Judge.me.
We will remove code from other review apps according to your preferences. If we are working on a live theme, there might be a chance where both review apps show up for a few seconds, but this will only happen when our support team is actively working to clean up and customize your theme files.
You can easily export your reviews from Yotpo by following this guide, and then import them into Judge.me yourself (remember to select Yotpo format). Alternatively, send us the import file and our support team will take care of it for you.
Most of the time we can automatically verify existing reviews based your shop's order history. But if this is not possible, all you have to do is show evidence that the reviewer has previously bought your product. Basically, just send us a screenshot showing that you have previously collected verified reviews on Yotpo (or another app), and an excerpt of your customer list which we can use to identify a sample of reviews. We will then then verify the reviews for you.
