Testimonials play an important role for making a business stable such that it can stand alone on its feet even in the low sales period. The reasons behind is that incoming customers of your store always like to check the product testimonials on product details page. If they find good testimonials, they show zero hesitation while purchasing the product. In the other case, with negative testimonials or no testimonials, customers think that the product has some problem and in the beta mode such that no one reviewed it yet.
