Agree with Themepunch,
In case of very low rating, there should be a way to contact the customer. Not for spam or beg, but to help fair customers to solve their problems.

It’s surely a step ahead since we see what happens to our products rating, but this part is simply frustrating

Now that I can see why I get low ratings I know that we are great at what we do, because more stupid reasons for 1 or 2 star ratings you just can’t get :) Usually not related to theme or support.

What is great about this I can create black list.It would be great if I can refund this buyers and get rid of this stupid comments.

Or even better this comment must become public!

+1 for blacklist! There are definitely some people we do not want to do business with! I’d be more than glad to prevent them from buying anything from us.

Actually the information itself is precious. That means, if the rating comment helps the author to realize his/her item is already fine and the low ratings are just random expressions, then the author can stop worrying about framework / construction / way of production and proceed the next products in the same way. That’s actually the primary benefit we get by knowing buyer feedback, along with low ratings.

Refunding / trying to remove ratings etc are too much for our precious time. 4 Star average means ‘great’ in my dictionary. Similar to anti-biotics, any effort towards fighting with unreasonable ratings will eventually cause more / unpredictable vulnerabilities in the future. So just leaving those ratings untouched is the only good thing we can do – as long as we have other gains.

Small issue regarding the “Send me an email when someone leaves a review with their rating.” setting in My Settings > Author settings – the setting does not update on save. I’d like to turn it off.

It looks like there are lots of people rating who never try and get support. I imagine these people are rating because they got a “reminder to rate” email from Envato, and just had no idea that support was available. But in the grand scheme of things, what’s more important in these situations – getting a rating from an unhappy buyer? Or turning the unhappy buyer into a happy one by helping them get support? Maybe our follow up emails should lead with support info and end with a reminder to rate. Here’s an example:

“Howdy, we noticed you purchased “abc” product recently. We hope you’re happy with the product. If you have any questions or concerns, the author of the product provides customer support which can be accessed here (link to item’s “Support” tab). We’d also appreciate if you could rate the item.”
