At Judge.me, we care about being authentic and transparent. That's why we develop a system of Judge.me medals that showcase the quality and quantity of your reviews. Such medals are strong indicators that help your customers "judge" the trustworthiness of your store and make better buying decisions.
If your store doesn't have any medals, we'll display this statement "Unfortunately your store does not have any medals at the moment."
Example of medal widgets on the Homepage of ClearStone:

Schedule automatic review requests to collect more verified reviews
You can get an Authenticity medal if at least 90% of the reviews you publish are verified reviews. So make sure you have enabled automatic review requests to collect verified reviews from customers whose orders are fulfilled. If you have imported reviews from orders outside of Shopify, you can send us the proof of order fulfillment so we can verify those reviews for you.
Having a good number of verified reviews also helps you obtain and reach higher levels in the Top Shop and Verified Reviews medals.
Getting verified reviews frequently can help you get the Top Trending Shops and Monthly Record medals, which are calculated based on your recent records of reviews.
Make sure to publish your latest reviews
To get a Transparency medal, you need to publish at least 90% of the total verified reviews you receive. If you don't use the auto-publish feature, your newly submitted reviews will be listed as "Reviews to curate" and will remain hidden until you publish them. So make sure to check your Reviews dashboard frequently to curate the latest reviews.
Be mindful of archived verified reviews
We calculate your Transparency score based on the total number of reviews. This total number includes published, hidden, and archived reviews that have been verified. Since archived verified reviews are NOT completely deleted, you may end up having many unpublished reviews, which may affect your Transparency score.
If these archived verified reviews are imported reviews, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to delete them completely. For non-imported reviews, we can't delete them completely; but unless you have a huge quantity of archived verified reviews, it's not going to affect your ranking much.
