Setup Wiremo app for Shopify

Search for Wiremo and add the app to your store. For an easier way to find the app, please type "Wiremo", or use the direct link: https://apps.shopify.com/product-reviews-app-by-wiremo
On the next page click on the “Install app” button to proceed with the installation.
We will proceed with the installation. Wiremo app charges you on a usage basis, you will pay only for what you use, you can check the Wiremo Growth plan prices by accessing the Pricing page for Shopify.

On the "Wiremo Setup", choose one of the options to continue the installation. You can select either Automatic (Pin. 3) or you can choose Manual installation (Pin. 4).
Further, we will proceed with Automatic installation. Click on “Let’s get started” (Pin. 3). For manual installation refer to the last step of this guide.
Select which of the widgets you would like to install. By default, the plugin will install all of the widgets available (Pin. 5). They are as follows:

Personalize your review widget
In this step you can change the color of your Main buttons (Pin. 7), Star rating (Pin. 8) and widget background (Pin. 9). Also, the Star size can be changed to Small, Medium or Large (Pin. 10).
Next, select the Widget Layout “List or Grid” - this will be the design of the review widget (Pin. 11).
