    Now I'm getting charged for leads that I'm not licensed for, from a customer who posted it twice

    TrustPilot Reviews
    Hello! I see that we have the option to import google reviews. I was wondering if there was an option to import Trustpilot reviews. We have over 150 5 star reviews that I would love to utilize if possible. Thanks!

    Inconsistent Lead Volume
