I completely understand how the thought of cost can be worrisome. However, for what you are looking to do the apps will be the best option. They will give you more control over what you see and how your home page will be set up.
If you let me know the name of the theme that you are currently using, though, I will be happy to take a look at its features to see if there is anything else that I can suggest for you.
What theme are you currently using? Also, what stores are you referring to that currently have dots for more testimonials? I can't verify if they are on the Shopify platform, or what theme they are using, but with their store URL, I might be able to get more ideas that can help you.
Thank you so much for sending that over. By the looks of it, they are using a theme that is similar to Debut.
If you were to use the Debut theme you would be able to get the testimonial feature you are looking for!
Can you try that and see how it works?
Great question. There isn't a direct native feature for testimonials on the Brooklyn theme, but I did find some apps that I think could work for what you're looking for.
There is a free app called Product Reviews and it was created by Shopify. It's more for product reviews rather than testimonials, but it's a great app. The best part is that it's free.
If you have any objections to that option and are looking for direct testimonials the there are some other apps that you can look into like Kudobuzz which is a great one and it has a free plan available.
There is also EMV Testimonials & Reviews. It isn't free, but it's highly reviewed.
This link will take you to the app store where we have all of our testimonial apps listed.
This should help you get started, but if you need more help please feel free to let me know.
