Frequently Asked Questions

Can I customize the point-of-sale invitation?

There are several standard (free) versions of the point-of-sale invitation available. If a retailer prefers that the invitation have its own look and feel, or one that is merely different from what Bizrate offers, then retailers can create their own graphic for the invitation if it conforms to the size specifications of 500 x 455 pixels, functionally indicates an acceptance of the invitation with a click, and is approved by Bizrate Insights. (Fee applies.)

Do popup blockers prevent the survey invitation from rendering?

If a pop-up blocker is present on a consumers’ computer, then Bizrate’s buyer survey invitation will render in a DHTML format (a pop-in). No change to the code needs to be made by retailers for this functionality; it is already built into Bizrate’s code.

Can I customize Bizrate’s code?

Bizrate® Insights does not condone nor support customization of the buyers’ survey code beyond what is provided by Bizrate. Requests for customization should be submitted to Bizrate through a Bizrate Insights account manager or

Can I get custom reports and benchmark?

YES! We offer custom reports to meet each retailer’s needs which are emailed at regular intervals or the data can be directly accessed to create custom reports in our AccuRate cross-tabulation reportal. Both of these services are offered for fees.

How does the standard order fulfillment invitation email look?

Three days after a consumer has indicated (on the point-of-sale survey) that they expect to receive their order, Bizrate emails the consumer an invitation to take a short survey about order receipt. The subject line for this email is “Shipping Verification – Response Requested”. If the consumer does not respond to this invitation, then 5 days later, Bizrate issues one emailed reminder with the subject line of “Shipping Verification Reminder – Response Requested”.
