After you connect your feed to your Yelp page, the plugin will be able to find your user reviews and embed them on your WordPress website.

Once you have your key, paste it on the popup and press the Next button at the bottom.

After entering your Yelp API key, the plugin will use it to automatically update your future Yelp Elementor feeds.

Next, you can select the Yelp business page that you’d like to fetch customer reviews from. You can either add your own Yelp page or just use any other page you want to use.

Just paste the URL of the Yelp business page on the popup and click Finish.
