For retailers with a paid Trustedshops.com account, this Mailbeez module allows you to easily embed Trustedshops reviews on your website, and as embedded content within Mailbeez emails; greatly extending the reach of your Trustedshops investment.
Like many enterprising retailers, if you have made the investment and signed up for a Trustedshops account for your store, you are probably already looking for extra ways to leverage your subscription in order to maximize the exposure of good reviews to help sales; and this is where this module excels.
The Mailbeez Trustedshops Integration Suite effectively gives you the tools to publish your Trustedshops reviews on your website, and within any Mailbeez email via the introduction of a simple tag; greatly increasing review exposure.
Trust at checkout
In addition to the core functionality of the module, creative retailers could also create a secondary template to pull in only a handful of reviews at a time, and display them as snippets on the shopping cart or checkout page. As one of the main areas where a sale is decided upon, and where consequently trust is vitally important, this would be a highly effective, yet simple step to alert your customers to the store’s trustworthiness.

Integrate Ratings into the storefront:
Let’s say you wanted to add the Trustedshops reviews to your ‘Contact Us’ page. In order to do this, you would simply use the following PHP code and place it into the Contact us’ page.
//include class require_once(DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'mailhive/configbeez/config_trustedshops_rss_importer/classes/trustedshops_import_rss.php'); // create new instance $rss = new trustedshops_import_rss(); // generate output (template, number of ratings, min stars, shuffle) echo $rss->output_rss('rss_reviewpage.tpl', 7, 4, 'True');
The included DIV/CSS based template “rss_reviewpage.tpl” generates a default output, which can be customized to match your store’s theme with only a little extra work.
Integrate Ratings into MailBeez campaigns:
By adding a simple tag into your MailBeez template you can also show your ratings in all or selected MailBeez generated emails.
