Our goal at BuyerRecommended is to help ecommerce companies find highly qualified vendors for their projects. Qualifications are based on a vendor’s relevant work experience and how well they address the needs of their clients. Prospective buyers of services rely heavily on reviews, ratings and references of a vendor’s customers. Ratings and reviews that are relevant, descriptive, and trustworthy are therefore critical in making BuyerRecommended a valuable resource to you and others in the industry.
Our review form consists of 6 fields that can be categorized into two groups as follows:
1) Project Description
2) Vendor Recommendation
When completing a review form, please be as accurate as possible with the project date and size information. If your project is not yet complete, we may contact you in the future to update the project completion information.
For the project description, please provide as much relevant information as possible about the type and scope of the project. For example, a description of an ecommerce site development project might include: technology platforms, programming languages, rough number of SKUs, and whether the work was an upgrade or a completely new build. For design listings, you should include the type of products you are selling on your ecommerce site.
For the vendor recommendation, please indicate why you would or would not recommend this vendor to others based on your experience working with them. Please address the full range of factors that informed your recommendation including: technical skills, professionalism, responsiveness, integrity, and ability/willingness to tackle difficult challenges.
When writing your project descriptions and vendor recommendations please focus on:

Lastly, please indicate via the check box, whether you would be willing to be a reference for this vendor. A check in this box indicates that you are open to connecting with prospective buyers to share your experience of the vendor whether you provided a positive or negative review.

We do not permit reviews that are posted in exchange for compensation of any other kind.
To enhance the value of reviewer feedback, BuyeRecommended scores each of the reviews on both project relevance to the listing category and on quality of the vendor endorsement whether positive or negative. Review scores are used, along with other factors, as a primary determinant of the total listing score which impacts the order in which listings are presented, i.e. “ranking”. The highest scores will be awarded to reviews that meet the following criteria:
Reviews may be removed for any of the following reasons:
Note, the BuyeRecommended Website and Services provide a forum for users to share both positive and negative experiences and opinions. We do not arbitrate disputes. We will not remove reviews just because they are negative, and absent highly unusual circumstances, determined at our sole discretion, will err on the side of transparency and comply with our policy to leave reviews published. As a balance to this “policy,” vendors and other registered users may add comments to any listing to discuss reviews and other relevant topics.
Reviewers are not permitted to edit their reviews once they are published, except to make minor corrections, such as grammar, spelling or punctuation. The reviewer should notify BuyeRecommended of these corrections as soon as possible after publication. We reserve final discretion over any editorial corrections. If the status of the engagement changes after the review is published, the reviewer may request that the review be updated accordingly. Since a reviewer’s experience with a vendor may change over the course of a project, we recommend that prospective reviewers not submit a review of a project until it is complete.
BuyeRecommended is not responsible for any negative reviews of a company nor is BuyeRecommended responsible for any consequences of such reviews and/or rankings, including but not limited to loss of business or loss of goodwill.
