Shopify please help (Merchants please like this if you need this). Google have a simple way to display Product star ratings (from Shopify Product reviews) next to our Google Shopping ads. We see other stores selling our products with 5 stars next to their ads, which boosts their ad ROI. Hoping it's a simple fix for Shopify because the product review ratings are already showing in Google organic search results - and we've spent years compiling product reviews so lets share them :-)
Two steps are required:
(1) Shopify needs to submit a Google Product Ratings Partnership Request
(2) Once Shopify is approved, Shopify Merchants can apply to Google Product Ratings, via the merchant centre to their Shopify Product rating displays in in Google Shopping ads.
Just use a compatible app to get on Product Ratings. Judge.me is a far more flexible and feature-rich solution then Shopify's free version. You can learn more about Product Ratings, Seller Ratings, Dynamic Remarketing, and all other Merchant Center programs for Shopify.
Hi Josh. Thanks for the suggestion, but keen to continue using Shopify Product Reviews. Free, good features, SEO friendly, and we have years of reviews. Just looking for Google Shopping fix.
While you are waiting for the response from Shopify customer service, have you about the rich snippet codes for review?
If not, please check this article -> https://www.searchenginejournal.com/google-reviews-rich-results-update/326075/

This is not a "fix" I'd expect Shopify to make. It is a significant feature request changing the direction of their free app. Feature wise, they haven't changed the app in years. I suggest what I originally suggested.
What about a store like ours which has thousands of 5 star product reviews from our old Volusion site that we imported. How do we get Google to show these? I am in the process of adding the free Google Reviews but I'd hate to have to start all over when we have years of awesome reviews prior to migrating to shopify last month. Is there a way to create a review feed within shopify of existing product reviews to submit to Google?
