We have built this review software as a custom review platform for WordPress. If you have an existing WordPress site then our review platform can seamlessly integrate into it. It can also run as a new WordPress installation.
Yes, you’ll need your own hosting. At the very minimum you’ll need 1 VPS server running Ubuntu. Ist is recommended that you run two VPS servers. One for your main site and an optional one for your blockchain if you decide to get that package. VPS servers usually run around $50 dollars per month per server. We recommend GoDaddy VPS. Please contact us if you have more questions about hosting and the blockchain component.
No, but if you want to show more trust and transparency for your review site then you could get the optional blockchain component. This gives you the ability to post your verified reviews to your own private blockchain where it shows merchants/customers that the reviews haven’t been edited or deleted. This in turn creates more trust and transparency and is great for your site and your merchants reputation.
All reviews that come into your review platform will be posted to your own blockchain via part of the review solution. Those reviews are posted every 10 minutes and get posted to the blockchain in pairs. If one review is sent to the blockchain it will queue it until a second hits and then they are both posted.
Yes, you can customize your own review platform but do know that Trustalyze will not support new features and functions you add to the review platform. With that said, Trustalyze does update the review platform a few times a year so if you want features added then be sure to contact us about those new features.
Yes, a simple modification will allow your review platform to crawl other review sites to bring in other reviews. This can lead to a SEO issue if not done correctly so be sure to consult with us before adding this modification.
