Lipscore vs. Trustpilot

All solutions that gather product ratings and reviews offer the same basic tools. What makes Lipscore unique is the high response rate, and that we can guarantee that all reviews are 100% real.

Here is an overview of what we think are the main differences between Lipscore and Trustpilot.

Response rate

The response rate measures how good the solution is at gathering feedback from customers.

You need a high volume of ratings and reviews on a big portion of your products to boost conversion and sale. That’s why the response rate is so important.

Lipscore

Response rate

Companies that follow our guidelines get feedback from 22,83% of their customers on average.

In our experience, no other solution on the market gives you more ratings and reviews than Lipscore. Therefore, we GUARANTEE we’ll increase your response rate, or you don’t pay!

Trustpilot

Response rate

If you’re Trustpilot customer, you will find your response rate in your “Invitation conversion page”

Trustpilot doesn’t share their average invitation conversion (response rate), but the general industry average is just 4-11%.

In just a few months, the number of reviews on one of E-wheels’ most popular scooters has increased by more than 1200%! From 112 to 1.424 reviews (and 5.362 ratings!!).

Just like that – accomplished by switching from one of the world’s largest solutions for gathering ratings and reviews – to Lipscore.

«Incredibly efficient platform for collecting product reviews and a great team to work with! We, at E-Wheels, can safely recommend Lipscore», says Markus Søderlind, CIO at E-Wheels.

Real Reviews

If anyone can write a review for your business without being verified as real customers, you risk getting attacked with hundreds of fakes, negative reviews.

The best way to remove this risk is to only allow reviews from verified byers.

Design of Widgets

Some solutions for ratings and reviews let you design widgets so that they fit your website design, while others don’t.

You must decide for yourself whether you think promoting the review platform on your website is to your advantage, or if it would be better for you to adapt the widgets so that they fit your website design.

Display of Reviews

Ratings and reviews are a great way to build trust, and thus boost conversion and sales.

But it requires that your ratings and reviews are displayed in a trustworthy way.

Reviews with “Verified buyer badges” improves the odds of purchase by 15%.

Think for yourself, what do anonymous reviews do to YOUR trust?

Lipscore

The only alternative is to change to first name plus the first letter of the last name.

This means that all reviews from Lipscore are displayed with a real name and a verified buyer badge. That creates trust!

In addition, a small RealReviews ™ logo is displayed at the top of the list of reviews for all Lipscore clients to make it very clear to their customers that all reviews are in fact written by buyers of the products and services they provide.

You can also decide the name to be displayed yourself, which means that even reviews with a “Verified buyer badge” can be hard to trust when it’s written by “King Kong” or whatever name the customer choose to display.

Domain for reviews

It’s worth noting that some solutions display your business’ reviews on their own domain. This means that you send your customers out of your online store to read your reviews!

This also means that they can claim the legal ownership to your reviews, so that you loose all reviews if you terminate the contract.

In addition, Google rewards user generated content such as reviews. The domain where your reviews are published are rewarded with increased visibility on google.

The Review Process

The review process varies and affect both the quantity and quality of the feedback you get.

What’s more important to you, to get as many responses as possible or to get detailed feedback on each response?

Should the review process allow for anonymous reviews or not?

It’s also worth noting that the solutions that publish your reviews on their own domain, also gathers reviews on their own domain.

Legal Reviews

If you want to gather and use ratings and reviews without breaking the law, you need to know two things:

Second, you must know what is considered unfair commercial practices under EU law when it comes to reviews.
