When you first sign into your PowerReview dashboard, you will be presented with an integration wizard. This wizard will take you through the main steps of configuring your account. Below is a quick reference on each of these steps.
Step 1: Select eCommerce Platform
Step 2: Upload Product Product Feed
Also note that the term "Description" used by PowerReviews is actually referencing your 3dcart Store's Product "Short Descriptions" rather than the Extended Description. So please be sure that your products have Short Descriptions configured.
Step 3: Select Product Review Forms
Step 4: Get Code
For the next step of the Integration Wizard, you will be presented with code snippets that would need to be applied to your site. Normally, this is a manual process you or your webmaster would configure. However, for the 3dcart integration, we take care of this for you through scripting. Therefore, a few of the pages on this setup will be skipped as indicated in the following steps.
