Automatic Feedback Service 2.0 introduces a smarter and far more powerful way to integrate your eCommerce store with Trustpilot. With AFS 2.0 you can increase the number of clients who respond to your invitations in several ways. First, you can include Trustpilot’s interactive stars in your invitation template. Adding these interactive stars to your invitation template can increase your current conversion rate by up to 61%! Additionally, you can now optimize your conversion rate by specifying the exact date and time to deliver your invitations. Yet another benefit of AFS 2.0 is pre-tagging. For example, you can pre-tag your reviews and collect data such as city, shipping methods, or sales agent, and thereby gain insights into your business - helping you make smarter business decisions. Finally, with AFS 2.0 you can include the products your customers have purchased, allowing them to leave both a service review and a product review through the same invitation.
