#170333 Let's build a Crowd-Sourced Reviews Addon - Startup Style!

Posted by m33 on 24 October 2013 - 08:31 PM

The problem:
Let's face it, the reviews addon for Cscart needs help. I have been in plenty of UX studies where buyers consistently say that reviews are one of the most important things they need to see before purchasing something online (zmot proves this too). Inspired by the possibility of yotpo, but realizing their shortcomings with the cscart version (total afterthought) and the fact that ownership of YOUR reviews is shared between you and yotpo, I think with a few interested and talented peeps, we could do better and I mean like Chuck Norris better!

The Pitch:
Let's work together and build something really robust and.... free. (OMG!) The idea is that we build something that is similar to Yotpo but better for Cscart stores, self contained, self-owned (content-wise) and then share it for free for all users. Or at the very least, we could just share it amongst us contributors.

  • Back end devs with deep knowledge of Cs-cart
  • Front end devs
  • UI designers
  • Facebook app devs

I offer:
  • Program Management/PO experience for Ratings and Reviews at a major company for my day job. I get the nuances of the how and why of this stuff.
  • Complete technical requirements ( a crap-load written as of today)
  • UI Design ( if we don't get another decent designer stepping up)
  • Agile Experience

  • Warm and fuzzies
  • Github klout
  • Extra life credit
  • oh... and a robust Ratings & Reviews system that rivals anything out there.

If you're interested, post below with your skills. I'll set up a basecamp project and invite whomever wants to contribute. Or feel free to just chime in with some feature request for the addon.

No documentation for this addon. Buyer beware. Very frustrating trying to get this up and running.
