What is Disqus?

To get started, we would like to give you some information on Disqus.

Disqus is well-known as a discussion platform that charge you no fee. It does encourage social engagement and traffic to your online store, website, as well as bettering your SEO. Disqus are able to be employed as an alternative to your commenting feature for blogs, especially when you see that your blog creates too many comments or is getting a lot of spam. That is not all it has, Disqus also can be employed to generate discussion about your items on product pages. While the system integrates with Shopify, comment removal, comment moderation and general analytics get done thru the Disqus platform. The fact is that it is truly an easy system to integrate but in case you are apprehensive or would like to moderate comments thru Shopify, you’d better checkout the Disqus integration application on App store.
