This restriction helps to collect genuine yet credible reviews and protect your business from fake or misleading reviews.
To configure the settings, head over to Review → Settings tab :
- Click General settings → Accessibility.
- Select which customers are allowed to write reviews on Allow review submissions field.
- You can also configure visibility of ‘Write a review’ button Only to authorized reviewer(s) or To all.
