    We have this extension installed and actively using it, it works great for us to show case our work and allow customers to vote and review what we have built. Check it out here: Awesome extension. Thank you for the wonderful work!

    I'm testing it on a sand-box environment and its great and useful. Soon I will be deploying at a production environment. Easy to install and configure. Bit tricky at translating but its ok. Keep the great extensions! Thank You

  • Reply to Chan


    Hi Chan, Thank you for using our extension and giving helpful feedbacks. We definitely consider your great suggestions in future updates to improve this product. Best regards, Magestore.

  • Great but could be a little better.


    I really like this extension. To make it better please allow the customer to change there Avatar and see their feedback history from their account page. For an Admin, it would be nice to click on the customer and see there history instead of having to do it straight from the extension. Another great addition is to be able to see statistics for each Topic Type.

    Hi Monica, Thank you for your suggestion. We highly appreciate it and will consider to update in the next version.

  • Fernandis


    It would be even better if like in there is another tab called "facebook friends" next to question, praise, report, and idea so people who login via facebook can see what their friends are saying. Coz Friends feedback/review is more valuable than unknown peoples feedback

  • Best way to build image


    A lot many customers like to see the previous customers feedback about the overall services of the store as well as its products before proceeding with buying process and if they find a nice platform where they can see the previous buyers comments and feedback then it really doubles their confidence to buy products. A certain recomendation for almost every store.

  • great next extension


    Hi. I just bought the extension. Minute ago, I was looking for something that connects my customers with Magento. tried and tested a lot other extension - but Community Feedback is all-out-in-the-box. Todays every store must look for customers - they are in social. So this is a best and most valuable connector to Social and Magento. I Recommend it definitely.

  • Get satisfied support

    I find this is the most useful module for my business. When installing this extension, I had some unwanted troubles of uploading files. I believed that it would keep crashing that time. But Magestore's Supporters helped a lot so that Social voice could run properly on my store. Their quick and great responses are reason why I vote 5 stars for Magestore. Thumb up, guys!
