I was recently recommended using js-kit to implement comment & rating feature to my website where I want to get customer user reviews & feedbacks on my products.

However, I'm not quite sure how to use this tool, and I'm just wondering if anybody else has other tools that I can implement on my "already existing" site.

Please note that I'm not trying to add this to my blog or forum, but to my business website.

I haven't heard of JS-Kit before.
I just did a quick search for it and found
Based on that it sounds like a bad idea for a business web site for the following reasons:
1. The comments are stored on so if that site goes down so do your comments.
2. It uses Javascript which like flash should be avoided unless absolutely needed to let your site functions be usable be the widest audience possible.

It does the have the advantage though of being easy to implement.
You just add the JavaScript code listed at the top of the page and you have comments.

If the above two reasons don't look like a problem for your site you can just add the code on that page and be done.

Otherwise if those would be problems, post what server side language you use (ASP, PHP, Ruby, etc.) and I can see if I can find a comment system that would work.
Note though as far server site languages go I only a little bit of PHP so I can't help much for other languages.
