Disable WooCommerce Product Reviews

While it’s true that product reviews can be highly valuable for any eCommerce store, there are occasions where you simply don’t need them. Here are 2 methods to disable them:

Disable Reviews in the Settings

You can disable product reviews by turning them off in the settings. Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products and uncheck Enable product reviews.

Disable Reviews Programatically

For my demo sites I use a multisite installation. To save myself setting this option every time, I just disable reviews globally for products in the theme settings. You can do this with a very simple code snippet.

Add this to your theme or child theme in the functions.php file, or using the Code Snippets plugin.

    how do we remove the comment function and keep the rating? In other words, to leave a review, all the customer has to do is select a rating (star), fill out their details and press submit.

  2. Nice post! Thanks for sharing amazing content.

    Saves my day Thank you

  4. For those who open an e-commerce recently, using an internal plugin for reviews could be useful.
    But surely the best strategy is to collect only verified reviews through external certifiers.

    It’s awesome, But Here I’m looking for to Set Restriction on Product Review, Customer can Place only One Review on the Product. Hope you can help me, Thanks in Advance.

  6. Thanks for this but can you please tell me how to allow customers to submit star ratings without writing any comment because sometimes customers just don’t give star ratings because they don’t want to write something about the product. It will be very helpful
