Here we will compare the two Shopify product reviews apps Okendo Reviews and Rapid Reviews. We will evaluate each app according to the following: page speed and rendering performance, ease of use, features, and price.
Rapid Reviews is superior to Okendo Reviews in several important categories, including page load speed and rendering speed, ease of use, and feature set. Rapid Reviews provides its core features like deep search, questions and answers, photos and videos, and email/SMS reviews requests, at a much better price.
Okendo wins in the area of integrations and supplemental features that are not directly related to product reviews, however at a much higher price.
Okendo's page speed profile is decent. However, it cannot compete with Rapid Reviews.
Rapid Reviews outperforms Okendo on page load speed, rendering, and performance. With just a single request of 12K and 0.4 seconds to rendering, the total data loaded to the page is far less with Rapid Reviews, making it faster, more consistent, helpful to Google Page Speed Insights scores, conversion, customer engagement, and more.
Okendo can become quite expensive once you add on additional features that help your product reviews capture and distribution. The clear winner here is Rapid Reviews, which includes all features at every price level. Rapid Reviews pricing starts at $6 per month.
Rapid Reviews will grow with your business, whereas Okendo has a high cost up front for Shopify stores with low order volume.
Rapid Reviews outperforms Okendo in several important feature areas except for integrations and supplemental features unrelated to the core product reviews experience.
