Here we will compare the two Shopify product reviews apps Yotpo 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 far superior to Yotpo in several categories, including page load speed and rendering speed, ease of use, and price. Rapid Reviews provides all features at every price level, while Yotpo charges significant additional fees for standard features like search, custom attributes, and Google Shopping integration.
Yotpo does provide supplemental features for things like integrations and product recommendations, but those features slow down page speed performance on your Shopify theme, and dramatically increase the monthly price of the app.
Rapid Reviews dramatically outperforms Yotpo on page load speed, rendering, and performance. With just a single request of 11K 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.
If pricing Yotpo with its full feature set, Rapid Reviews pricing starts at $6 per month with all features available, while Yotpo can cost over $200 per month with similar features enabled.
The clear winner here is Rapid Reviews, as one of the best priced Shopify product review and questions and answers apps on the market.
Rapid Reviews outperforms Yotpo in several feature areas, including easy product review content edits, Shopify 2.0 app block integration, and easy imports & exports of product review data. However, Yotpo is the clear winner in the category of integrations, with many helpful integrations — many of those integration come with high addtional monthly costs.
