    Default Google Reviews

    Google has not provided a widget for website owners to easily show their reviews, so you have to use a third-party product to do this. If you have had success with a particular vendor, please post here to help others who want to do this.

    We use a paid product called EmbedSocial, this can take reviews from sources such as google, facebook, yell ect and then you can create an iframe widget to drop in wherever is needed. You can see this in action in our footer:

    You simply sign up, set up your sources and create a widget. Then post the script wherever you would like to display the created widget.

    If you want to use iframes there is WordPress free of cost plugin for this -> https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget...ws/#developers
    I've used that frequently.
    Install WordPress into a subdomain, create a basic site with a section and a div, register the API code at Google Developers Console, configure and style the plugin and finally put the shortcode into the div.
    The plugin has also built-in styling features. The last time I used it was 2021. And in 2021 it already was as expected.

    Though I don't like using iframes I did it again at my last project -> The BTU Calculator
    It works even for mobile devices pretty well.

    Thanks. Really looking just for Widgets that can be used in Zen Cart, not separate entire web apps.

    I know there's an API that requires you to write code and use OAuth. I was hoping for a *widget*.
