Options for Adding Customers into GetFiveStars

The following posts describes a variety of options for getting customers into the GetFiveStars Review Platform. Please don’t hesitate to contact support@getfivestars.com with any questions you may have.

Option 1) Kiosk Mode

Kiosk Mode

Kiosk Mode allows you to request feedback from your customer on-site. This is ideal for restaurants, medical offices, handyman and any other business that works and interacts with their customer in person. Complete Kiosk Mode tutorial here.

Option 2) Importing and Uploading Customers from a Spreadsheet


Ideal for medium and large volume customer lists. We recommend to upload a fresh list once a week depending on your customer volume. GetFiveStars will check for duplicate and existing Email Addresses in your list – only the first occurrence of the email address will be imported. Complete Tutorial here.

Option 3) Entering Customers Manually


Great for small businesses with lower volume of customers and those businesses who work remotely and cannot utilize Kiosk Mode. GetFiveStars is fully responsive and works great on any phone or tablet. Complete Tutorial here.

Option 4) Feedback URL


The perfect solution for any business who does not have a Customer Email list. The unique “Feedback URL” can be added to websites, email signatures, email newsletters, existing survey forms as well as printed media, invoices, bills, tabs, receipts, business cards, QR codes, SMS etc – and does not require you to know the customers email or name. Complete Tutorial here.

Option 5) Feedback Button on Website

Great for every business owner that has a website. GetFiveStars comes with an easy to add ‘Testimonials Widget’ that works with any HTML, PHP, WordPress and other website. The testimonials widget will not only show your happy customer reviews on your website- it also makes the reviews indexable for Google and other Search Engines using Schema Review Markup. And it has an (optional) button for customers to leave you feedback. Read about the SEO advantages here. See here for how to add the Widget to your Website.

Option 6) SMS


The GetFiveStars SMS feature allows you to send plain text message requests to customers, and text message requests with an image if you want to stand out.

Option 7) Zapier Integration


Many customers have asked us for an efficient and easy way to import customers from other web services and online apps. Until now, you had to manually export your customers and import them into GetFiveStars, or you could build your own integration with our API.

Zapier was created to automate those type of tasks between online apps without the need of development teams and coding knowledge.
