Google reviews not working properly. Displaying wrong Star rating! Bad rating!

  • Issue description:
    Our Google reviews have now changed the star rating. Yesterday was showing 4.7 (Our current rating) and now overnight it has updated to 4.0.
    Huge impact on conversion today already noticed. Down by 54%.
    Not great when you are spending 4k a day on Google ads…
    Tried to contact support but no luck yet…
    Why is it showing the wrong Star Rating? Clearly an issue with the Elf Sight system.

Everything is down and tanking! This needs to be fixed asap… massive immediate impacts to my sales… Big $…
What the hell is going on with your widgets? Been some massive issues over the last few months?
Time to look for some new apps I think.

Please let me bring my sincere apologies for all the inconvenience caused one more time :pray:t2:

Issue description:
Since yesterday it only shows a rating of 4.0 out of 5.0. However, my Google Revew rating is 4.9

I have tried to change every widget-setting and even tried to create new ones from scratch, but it always shows 4.0 and not 4.9.

I have turned off the widget for now, but left it active on one site, so you can have a look at it.

And here you can see that its acutally 4.9: hausbaukurs - Google Search

I was wondering if anybody has ever had the same issue. I also contacted the support, but its weekend and they won’t answer before monday/tuesday so I am trying my luck here.
