Judge.me vs Opinew
Looking for an affordable Opinew alternative? With Judge.me, you can send unlimited review requests even on the free plan.
Send more review requests without extra costs
Opinew only allows you to import shop reviews from Amazon and eBay. With Judge.me, you can also collect shop reviews via emails, and these are verified reviews from your buyers.
You can add custom questions to your review form, and synchronize reviews across products groups and shop groups.
You will have to pay extra for these features in Opinew. Video reviews and custom review questions are only available in their Warehouse plan ($69/month) and above.
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 $11 to have photo reviews in Opinew. Both our Forever Free and Awesome ($15/month) plans offer unlimited volume of orders and review requests. Meanwhile, Opinew limits 50 review requests per month on their Side Gig plan ($11/month), 150 review requests on their Shop plan ($29/month), and the price you pay scales with the volume of review requests.
With Judge.me, you can push your reviews automatically (on the Awesome plan), or manually (on both plans) to Facebook and Twitter. We also support manual sharing to Tumblr and Pinterest. You can also create a Facebook Reviews Tab, which shows exactly the reviews on your Review Widget.
You can always contact us via email or chat at any time. We have a dedicated team ready to help you with onboarding and set up, as well as additional customizations you may require: from widget design to setting up Google Rich Snippets for SEO.
Opinew allows you to import reviews from Amazon. We don't support it because Amazon holds the copyright to the reviews on their platform. Therefore, it's against Amazon's Conditions of Use if we import reviews from them.

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 Opinew. 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 Opinew 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 Opinew, 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 Opinew by following this guide, and then import them into Judge.me yourself (remember to select Opinew 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 Opinew (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.
