How many order need to recover from 4.8 to 5.00 reviews

anyone can give the idea how many order need to recover from 4.8 to 5.00 reviews thanks


You’re still in good standing. Just focus on your orders and the rest will fall in place.

Another about 22 5 stars reviews will see you back at 5 stars. But as mentioned, do your best and the reviews will follow! Good luck!


Please consider the following equation:

(A + Y) / ((B + X) * 5.0) = Z

A = current overall rating
B = current total review count
X = new total review count
Y = X times 5.0 … this means all new reviews are 5.0
Z = new overall rating

/means divided by
*means multiplied by

This equation will show you how many more 5.0 reviews you will need to reach any particular overall rating… and you can manipulate “5.0” in equation to allow for more conservative estimate if you do not only anticipate 5.0 reviews.

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:


Thanks for your help

Wow the equation is very helpful.thank you so much for your help :slight_smile:

I’m not exactly getting it. The B would be the number of reviews you have now ? X would be the desired number of reviews? And what is Y :smiley: ?

Yes, B is the total number of reviews that you currently have on your profile (or select Gig) and X represents the desired number of reviews… You can put however many reviews in for the value of X to see how many reviews it will take to reach 4.945 (closest number to round up to 5.0)… and Y represents the average for your new ratings, and this is 5.0 in the equation above to show how many 5.0 ratings you will need to receive to reach any new Z (new overall rating)… but you can manipulate the 5.0 value to any lower value if you feel your average rating will be below 5.0 :slight_smile:

2900 would be B, your overall rating would be A… and then you can play around with X value to see how many reviews is needed to bring up ratings.
