Note: If you are using a third-party plugin to translate your shop into multiple languages, you might not be able to set up different language templates.
Include product review invitations
The Shopware plugin also allows you to send product review invitations if you are making use of Trustpilot's product reviews feature. You can automate product review invitations with the Shopware plugin. Simply go to General and enable the toggle button.
