Satisfied? Write “good” or “bad” reviews in Chinese

Aug. 10, 2016

E-commerce refers to the process of buying or selling products or services over the Internet. Online shopping platforms are slowly taking over from traditional shopping, in which buyers go to the market and pay for things with cash. (Must Known Chinese words for online shopping) In China, E-Commerce has been gaining in popularity and websites such as Taobao, Alibaba and JD.com are becoming a part of the daily lives of Chinese shoppers who don’t have time to go to the market.

How buyers can give sellers ratings is an important part of these websites. Just as a customer can leave a “好评 (hǎopíng) positive review” or “差评 (chàpíng) negative review ” on Yelp, TripAdvisor, etc., customers can leave opinionated reviews on JD.com, Amazon.com or other E-Commerce shopping websites. These reviews will greatly affect the business of the sellers! Let’s break it down:

好 (hǎo) = positive /good (adjective)
差 (chà) = negative/bad (adjective)
评 (píng) = review (noun)

好评 (hǎopíng): positive review
差评 (chàpíng): negative review

The two phrases are always used together with “得/受到 (dé/shòu dào) receive,” “给 (gěi) give,” Let’s look at the examples and learn how to use them.

Examples:

Nà bù jù shòu dào le hǎopíng.
那 部 剧   受    到  了  好评。
The play received good reviews.

Tā de yǎnjiǎng dédào le dàjiā de hǎopíng.
他  的  演讲        得到   了 大家  的  好评。
His speech received good reviews from everyone.

Wèishéme gěi wǒ gè chàpíng?
为什么         给   我  个  差评?
Why did you give me a negative review?

Quiz:

1. You might want to write a “好评 (hǎopíng)” if you ordered a product online and _____.
