“how to get free products to review from amazon _amazon product review wordpress plugin”

As the Amazon complaint explains, the fake reviewers ran their scheme through a work-for-site site called Fiverr. They allegedly used hundreds of fake Amazon account names and IP addresses in order to pepper the site with fake reviews. The text of the reviews are typically supplied by the people who hired them.

try the new out ReviewMyItem I’ve had very good luck with their offers. there are not too many a week, but when they do send them out they are usually very good offers. I have prime so its great for me

Hi Tristan. Great information! I just wanted to underscore a sentence you wrote above regarding receiving payment post-review (I work in an industry where the payment based upon success of the product is frowned upon/illegal/immoral as well). As you point out, this is so important: “It’s payment for review (a gray area, or flat out forbidding), and open for being taken advantage of by the person requesting the review.” Again, great article and advice within the comment section. BTW, No, Tristan did not pay me for this comment!

As of May 6, users’ product reviews will be displayed on all eligible listings. A listing is reviewable if it is adopted to a product or is a multi-quantity listing. Not all multi-quantity listings are eligible. Sellers are not required to take any action. For more information please read eBay’s product review guidelines.

Sounds like the customer was still under the impression that discounted products meant you had to leave an incentivized review. Perhaps they just weren’t aware of it. As mentioned by others in this thread, if you didn’t break the rules I wouldn’t worry too much.

Signed up for a few of these sites about two weeks ago. I have gotten some amazing products in to review, and have been pleased with every single item, so I gave each item a 4 or 5 star review. I am now reading all of the above comments about being banned from Amazon?! I would not want that to happen for sure. I am a little confused. I get emails from Amazon all the time to review products that I have purchased through them, at full cost, and have now started doing that also. I don’t see why Amazon has a problem with a review that I have left, especially since I am stating in the review that I got a promotional discount for my honest and unbiased review. Hopefully this will continue to work for me.

I am old and would like to find some honest companies where I can use their products and send in my review and maybe get to keep some things mainly electronics books ect.I can also turn the products back in with review if need be.I am afraid of getting a bad company,how do u know if they are legitimate companies?

So yes, I’m sure some reviewers – like you – may very well be able to get to the heart of a product despite getting it for free or for very little-but I would imagine that many don’t take it that seriously or even realize how the process affects their reviews. Or there are others that will not bite the hand that feeds them.

Disconcertingly, not only were a lot of the cloned products for sale on Amazon positively drowning in successive, unverified five star reviews, but perhaps an even greater proportion were tagged Verified. These reviews all shared similar word patterns and either focused on or neglected the same features, while including a staggering amount of useless user pics as well. Of course the most blatant Fake giveaway was that they were uniformly peppered with multiple exclamation points and exhortations to Just Buy It!!!

Good reviews are an art form and the problem is that people write emotionally about products whether they are free or not. Currently, Amazon has no system in place for elevating the wheat from the chaff whether the review is of a free or paid product because such a system would require a subjective evaluation of content rather than scanning by using software algorithms.

There’s one review in particular that stands out to me. It wasn’t a Vine member who wrote it, so it may not be relevant, but it’s the first review for a popular product that has thousands of reviews for it. This review was entertaining to read and has received hundreds of “Yes” votes saying it was helpful. The problem I have with it is that I own the product, and while the review was entertaining, it was very inaccurate. In this particular case, I don’t think it’s merely a matter of the reviewer having a different opinion, because many things written are factually inaccurate, and it was important information. And yet, the review is #1 out of thousands of others on Amazon.

Amy, for shoes, companies like Nike do have product testing, but they send you shoes all the time. And some require you send it back after a few weeks of testing. I found 6 of them that include Nike and Reebok. Here is the link to my post: http://moneypantry.com/get-free-shoes/

Vipon offers a variety of products for 50% to 100% off and is also one of the oldest review sites. They were previously known as AMZ Review Trader. It is free to join and a great option if you want to test several products at once.

Studies have shown that there’s actually a purchase bias- some people like an item more because they have picked it out and purchased it. Also the latest research I’ve read show that no matter the source, earlier reviews tend to be more positive, and then equal out over time.

I’ve notice with Survey Panels that women with children get more opportunities to test products. This may be the reason why you don’t get as many. There is no way to say how many products you’ll be able to test each month with companies, it all depends on your demographic. Make sure to fill out any screeners a survey panel sends you for a better chance to get into product testing.

How it works: To receive free products for testing, you can visit the ‘testing’ area of the site (under rewards), and apply to test products. If you are chosen to test the product then it will be sent out to you.

> The Vine program, and similar methods of eliciting feedback, give away products for free (or sell them at a deep discount) to potential customers vetted (by Amazon in the case of the Vine program) for the helpfulness of their reviews, in exchange for an “honest review.”

However, since I bought it for him, I was the one that had to load it, and that was not fun. I am not a computer programmer, but I can usually load a new piece of software on a PC. This took my sister and I an hour to get it to load. We had to go to youtube to figure out how to load it. That is why I gave it a 3 star. So other than the loading issue, I got a good price on Amazon and it shipped in plenty of time for his birthday. So if you are buying this for a kid I would recommend it.

This review program is part of the GMYLE brand, “developing MacBook, Tablet, Smartphone Accessories.” Like similar programs, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. When applying: Reviewers in “United States will receive first round pick. United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Canada, France, Italy and Spain will become available after.”

Now, let’s assume am an Amazon shopper and I want to get free products. But I don’t know which sellers out of the thousands of sellers on Amazon will give me their product for free in exchange for my review. I could contact them directly, but this would be time-consuming and again, who know who many will actually give me their product.

Usertesting is another video reviews site, focused on reviewing different websites. They give you a free software which lets you record your mouse movements while you visit the site you are reviewing along with your spoken words. You get paid $10 for each video review you create. And when you think about hundreds of websites that are available to review, you can easily see the potential in making real good money with UT.

Thanks for your reply. It seems the UK are sooooooo far behind the USA, it’s crazy. I lived in America for 3 years, wish I would of known about all this back then instead of spending half my time couponing lol (which I have to admit, I loved). I will check out that link too. Thanks 🙂

Hi Tristan, thank you for this article, it’s great read. For some time now I was thinking how to start and from where, finally last night I updated my Amazon account, and I also signed up to some of Web sites I found on your list. Your article really opened my eyes, and helped me understand how ‘this world’ works.

I wish Amazon had an option to turn off all “paid reviews”, which usually have the following disclaimer at the very bottom of a 10-paragraph review that you’ll never read to the end: “I was provided a discount for my fair and unbiased review of this product.” Fair and unbiased? Please. Claiming to provide an unbiased review that then completely fails to notice serious product flaws is blatantly dishonest. I especially hate the paid reviews that start with, “I bought this for my relative/friend/boss” etc., which misleads people, right off the bat, into believing the reviewer paid full price for the product.

For a decade, CR conducted independent testing and research to highlight the dangers of cigarettes. The Surgeon General’s Advisory Committee on Smoking and Health used CR’s work to draft its landmark report.

ProducttestingUSA is a COMPLETE JOKE. They will NEVER send you ANYTHING to test. I seen the one product was looking for 3 people to test it out It was for nail polish. ONLY ONE other person had signed up to test it, and it was closng in 17 minutes. I figured I would be the second person to sign up. The nail Polish closed and NEITHER of our names were on the \”Testers List\” SO WHERE DID the \”Testers\” come from? Another thing I noticed is when they email you the \”Lucky Testers\” Names. One week it might say: Cindy Brice was this weeks lucky tester. Next week it might say: Cynthia Rice is our lucky winner. The names are ALWAYS VERY Similar. Are they using employees names? Or making up names? I laughed when it said the one winner was:Ockijos Ramerizest. WHAT kind of name is that? Theres another name I see A LOT of and I can ONLY remember the FIRST name. They will do it: Ozzie, Ozzie and Ozzey. The last name is ALWAYS the same though. Another site to \”Look out\” for and DONT EVER USE is called: Point Club. You earn points for taking surveys and at times they send you things to \”test\” and take surveys on the product you JUST tested. This site is nothing but SCAMMERS. I took a survey for 7000 points the one day. I COMPLETED the survey and once I got to the end, the survey gave me a message: Thank you for completing our survey. You will be redirected back to your dashboard in a few moments to be issued your 7000 points. A few seconds later, I am taken back to the dashboard, BUT the cartoon guy who greets you on the dashboard said: You did NOT qualify for that survey, here is 12 points for trying. I contacted their Customer Service. I SAVE page views once I complete surveys JUST IN CASE something like this would happen. I told Customer Service: Here is the screen shot which says you HAVE COMPLETED and will be given 7000 points on your dashboard. They told me NO, it was a survey glitch, I ONLY get 12 points NOT 7000. Also, you need 25000 points to cash out for 25.00. I had 17560 points the one day. The next day I logged in, I had 11250 points. gain, they told me it was a system glitch on their part, I now have the correct amount of points. IF you DO MANAGED to get the 25000 points needed for the 25.00 paypal deposit, it takes 30 days for them to put the 25.00 into your paypal, ND they charge a 3% fee for transfer. TOTAL SCAMMERS.

After you’ve completed your product test, you’ll usually be asked to write a review, fill out a survey, or participate in a discussion about the product.   It’s important that you be honest when you do this, even if you have some criticism for the product. The company wants to improve their product if needed. The more in-depth you go with your reviews and answers will give them valuable feedback.

While some sites are better than others, I still look at all of them on a daily basis every morning. Have any other questions or comments? Leave them below. Thanks again for reading and happy frugaling!

2) Imitated gameplay. Spores gameplay offers nothing new. The 5 stages to the game all imitate other types of games. (see other reviews for more depth) This makes the gameplay seem cheap, however, the gameplay is not what sells the game. If you buy spore, buy it for the creature creator which is very well done and offers a very intuitive designer that offers a large number of bits and pieces for your creatures. There is also a vehicle and building creator that is not as interesting to me, but offers that customization that makes the later stages of the game unique.

I do think there is a notable difference between ‘free’ and ‘discounted’, paying even a couple dollars for something seems to have some notable psychological effect. So I’m not a fan of Vine, which does special shipments of things a reviewer might not have any interest in at zero cost. However, *some* of these discount-in-exchange-for-a-review sites my wife has been using actually have some merit.

Today we are going to talk about third-party review sites that basically exist for one reason only–to connect Amazon sellers looking to get reviews on their product listings with Amazon shoppers who would like to get free products.

There are more popping up all the time, but there are a select few with great reputations that you can be sure will deliver what they promise. After testing a whole range of sites ourselves we have come up with a list of the most trusted product testing sites below.

Avoid reviewing group promotional items under the group affiliate link they’re using. If you review a promo under a group affiliate link, it’s too easy to get tangled into a seller relationship block or wipe.

The types of products that you test can vary depending on what these companies think will be a good fit for you. If you have children, you’re a great candidate to test stuff for kids and if you’re a runner you may get to test the latest running shoes. Products like food and electronics can be tested by just about everyone.

“how to get amazon products in exchange for review _best amazon product review sites”

Please be careful, some of the ones on your list are against Amazon Reviewer and Seller Terms of Service and you will have your profile flagged and possible account removal. Stopped going through your list when I hit “Deals for Reviews”. It is against Amazon TOS to offer additional incentives (IE Random winners of gift cards) to reviewers other than just the free product. Reviews are also being deleted left and right because sellers are abusing the reviewer rights by manipulating the system by offering too many free products for free or at discounts to get their ranks up. Won’t be long before the Amazon terms will be changed again and ALL of these sites will fall.

However, since I bought it for him, I was the one that had to load it, and that was not fun. I am not a computer programmer, but I can usually load a new piece of software on a PC. This took my sister and I an hour to get it to load. We had to go to youtube to figure out how to load it. That is why I gave it a 3 star. So other than loading issue, I got a good price on Amazon and it shipped in plenty of time for his birthday. So if you are buying this for a kid I would recommend it.

They also told me anyone who owns it should upgraded immediately or suffer reduced speeds. I’m very angry with them. This was a highly rated modem last May. And, they wonder why they have such a bad reputation?!?!?

Hey Angela! I have won a couple of sweepstakes, but that was years ago. Surveys are pretty saturated with people, so it’s more harder to win them nowadays. You’re better off completing surveys that offers money, points, and product testing.

I’ve seen a tea product review with 1000s of good reviews, and looking deeper it was a combination of reviews from other tea flavours because they lumped them all together in one listing (with the choice of changing the flavour before adding to cart). It sucks, you can’t see the reviews specific to that flavour and it’s misleading if you don’t take your time to look.

Trek to Teach is a nonprofit organization that sends fluent English speakers to teach in Nepal near the Himalayas. In addition to teaching, Trek to Teach strengthens local communities by helping schools build infrastructure, paint their classrooms, and find furniture.

My friend recommended me DEALSGO – a website sharing numerous amazon coupon code and return cash back after reviewing the product bought. I bought an android charge cable last month and I checked my account found that it return my cash back! It is really good!

I get quite a few products from EarningStation Panel and pay is very well when it comes to product testing.  I get stuff like foods, beauty products, and household items. There was a time I was paid $50 for testing a product not yet in stores. Definitely sign up with EarningStation! 💰 Pays by Cash and Gift Cards

The quick answer is that every analysis does two simultaneous things: we analyze every single review posted and we review each reviewer and every review that reviewer has ever posted on that account. We take all that data and run it through our proprietary engine which grades everything and looks for patterns.

I totally agree, but it’s a nice quick way to capture small mistakes in formats that normally, you might really not care. In my Amazon reviews, because I’d never before even thought of doing reviews regularly, I really didn’t bother with editing. And that’s what I mean as far as most internet content. I share on my favorite sports team sites, and others that my grammar just really doesn’t matter. However, I too have been an editor, and as a journalist I feel the need to “set an example,” as if anyone actually is looking for an example or learning from me anyway! That’s my ego, as usual, pointing out to me how important I am ;).

When asking for reviews, make sure you’re asking the right questions. You don’t just want to know if your customers liked the product. You want to know how they’re using it (explanation, photo, video), who they’d recommend it to, and if the product has changed something in their life.

The guy said all the nasty things to me because I was excited I received a product earlier than expected. I have a terminal illness and I don’t get to be out a lot. Also I live in very small town where a lot of items are not offered. I included in my review on this serum there were no miracles in a jar and it takes time for anyone to see results yet I was impressed with the product and what I had experienced in the week of use. I also stated that what works for me may not work for another. Everyone reacts differently to products. The man then says to me you were just so scared the club would kick out so you hurried to get the review in. No one has told me a time. The amz review club has a place to say I’m reviewing but the point being I was impressed and even subscribed to the product at full price for future shipments.

5.      Solicit the top Amazon reviewers. Amazon holds a list of their top reviewers – a compilation of esteemed reviewers who are valued for their insightful and objective critiques. Many of these top Amazon reviewers also hold titles such as “Top Ten Reviewer,” or “Hall of Fame Reviewer,” which are displayed alongside their reviews, making their reviews ultra-valuable.

As the name implies, the focus is on Toilet Tree products. At the point of writing, they claim that their membership number is adequate and not looking out for more. But they use to recruit new members on weekly basis. So just fill out the form and they will get in touch if they see you as a good addition to their pool of members.

For pinecone research is it possible to complete just surveys without having to do any product testing? Do they notify you prior to sending you a product or do they just show up at your door? And would you happen to know how one would go about cancelling their membership with this panel? Thanks in advance!

Books definitely have fake reviews. I know, because I’m the assistant to an author, and it is ridiculously difficult to get real reviews. So when you see a LOT of them, you can pretty much bet the majority are fake. Fan letters can flood in via email, but just try and get those very same fans to post reviews on Amazon. They just can’t be bothered. (It would be great if Amazon offered discounts or something to incentivize real reviewers.)

I have managed to review and get some of the “not so mainstream” products here. This practice is a departure of other review web sites that so incline to push the usual types of merchandise before you. And they are big on supplements as well.

We’re serious about editorial integrity. So much so, we keep our sales team and reviewers in separate buildings – in different states and in different time zones. Seriously! Once our reviews are complete and published, our sales staff pursues various means of developing revenue. That may include traditional advertising, sponsorships, lead generation or affiliate relationships.

I was a vine reviewer. Till I gave 1 star reviews and told the truth about some children books. Amazon took my Vine priveledges away…And told me why. Sorry. I could not lie to other parents, and yes I do not regret my decision. Even if I don’t have a vine membership any longer. Even if I could get laptops, HD tv, furniture, appliances, and the latest technologies FREE….I am sticking to my morals and honesty.

You know what, I should have come back and update my comment. I checked my profile and found that email address was incorrect. The only offers I had previously received were from people who made comments on my reviews. At any rate, I fixed my incorrect email address and have more than a dozen in the last 2 days. Some are items I can use and would like (a travel pack, a passport wallet that holds your ID and CCs) and I passed on (an i-watch band, since I don’t own an Apple Watch).

  These companies below are my personal favorites I use to get free products at home to test, and get paid by either PayPal, Cash, Gift Cards, or Merchandise. Sign up now before these panels don’t accept new members! If you’re the main shopper in your household you should do really well.  With the holidays here, now is a great time to join these programs and make extra money.

If you need to contact Amazon about a review, you should email review-appeals@amazon.com with the order number and your profile link. That email is manned by real people who focus on nothing but reviews, and is much safer than just calling or emailing them through the website.

Also, a lot of Vine and top reviewers DO update reviews. We don’t have to, but we do. I spent about 16 hours last week updating reviews from 2002 on, saying what was still great, and what wasn’t, or noting problems that arose, and trying to delete reviews on items no longer offered, least the seller stick something else on that listing that my review wasn’t relevant to. I love to see updates when I am shopping- I see them fairly frequently, but I buy about EVERYTHING from Amazon, except fresh food.

Power drills and makeup mirrors having no connection? Really? Do you live under a rock? As a former beauty pageant winner and current toolbelt diva, I take issue with your statement sir. In fact, my last purchase on Amazon included these items: a Rockwell Versacut power saw, 150 pink Swarovski crystals, a bass tuner, a bottle of Beautiful by Estee Lauder (my signature scent), and a set of under drive pulleys for my Cobra. People, in general, are so much more than what you see on the surface, that what you see as completely unrelated and suspect is nothing more than an average shopping trend at a retailer that offers every conceivable product ever created.

Most products are 50% to 99% and there are a few free products as well after the discount is applied. For example, you can try out a plastic bread cutting slicer for free or buy women’s clothing and purses for $30 (70% off normal price of $100).

Further, in many situations- these sites that solicit reviews by giving out their book or product make you submit the review back to them so they can see what you write – after all they want you to promote the product they aren’t giving the item away to be nice. if you keep leaving bad reviews, it can affect your ability to keep receiving free things. A publisher is not going to want to give you advanced copies of books if you negatively review things. That’s another way reviews get manipulated.

One thing I do, is try to put myself in a reviewers shoes, and think back to myself and what mattered to me. Book reviews may not be quite the same as a product review, but an example I remember is when I discovered the book “Wool,” by Hugh Howey.

Many Amazon sellers have been concerned about the future of feedback solicitation since Amazon.com, Inc. (“Amazon”) began allowing buyers to opt out of non-critical communication from merchants. Some have started thinking things like Is feedback solicitation really worth it? and Is this even allowed by Amazon?

I filled out so many testing item surveys it’s not funny. It’s been s few months and I don’t even get any emails for anything related to the site. It’s not worth it. I also did the surveys for offer bucks.com and you have to have all 10 validated before you get your $100, I have only had one validated and it’s been months. I emailed them twice and never got a response. Don’t waste your time like I did.

After you get the design done, you need to print it out and add it to your packaging. Most manufacturers that make their own packaging can do this for you. If you, on the other hand, have a separate packaging manufacturer, they will most certainly be able to do it for you.

Fine but the problem is that it is impossible for a customer to tell whether your review is honest or not. And given the high rate of 5-stars, it’s likely your message will be interpreted as coming from a shill, and thus ignored, even if it was honest.

For over 5 years, I have been approached by authors, publishers, product manufactures and distributors to read/try their products and then write a review on Amazon. It has often been a rewarding experience in that I get to try products I love, and ones that I would have never bought but seem interesting.

I have only ever reached out to 1 or 2 companies that I can remember. I get about 1 offer a day now, so I don’t really have that much time to request more. And it is always via the email address I have listed on my Amazon profile.

I just got OB tampons through them get something I can’t use now since i had surgery to fix some women issues. I have been quite a bit from crowdtap lately I am going to be getting some shampoo and conditioners and hair color here soon.

I love how you are so willing to share your expertise with others. I never would have known about the site. Unfortunately, every time I’ve tried to participate, either the items are sold out (even when I buy it right as the time starts) or when II go to purchase something, it’s quite a bit more than it send. I enter the coupon code, but would have to pay quite a bit more than it says. Is this just because I’m low on the chart because I just started or is it a scam by the companies who are trying to pull the old bait and switch. I’ve found this especially true if the item is supposed to cost me just one dollar. I’ve been checking for over a couple of weeks now, but haven’t found any valid deals. There have been items that I would have gotten and reviewed if they hadn’t jacked up the price. I’ve also received the message that the people (Janet and Deborah) above have commented on. How many hours do you spend just looking for products that are valid? I’ve spent an hour or two a day, and right now it doesn’t seem worth the time. Do I just need to be patient and keep writing reviews? I have reviewed around 80 products on Amazon. I realize that’s just a fraction of what most people have. Because I’m an author and editor, I do enjoy writing reviews regardless of what I get out of it so I’ll keep reviewing products I’ve bought, but not sure about the AMZ [Trader] site. Thanks for your patience and diligence. I do appreciate your time and effort to teach people like me.

As for what star to choose, go off of Amazon’s suggestions. When you hover over a star, they help you with a sentiment such as “I hate it”, “it’s okay”, and “I love it” to name a few. Think about the product as a whole, and match how you feel to the corresponding star. If it’s really “I hate it”, then select a 1-star. Don’t worry about what other reviewers chose or wrote. They have their own rationale for their review. You review for you.

I pretty much skip over the Vine reviews — or consider them more of a product brochure than a review. Most of them are too long. All I really want to know is in general, are the purchasers pleased with their purchases and why/why not. Wish Amazon would limit the length of reviews.

Hello Estefany! I-say before and after the survey tells you how many points you’ll get for testing a product with them. Once you test the product, complete the follow up survey, they will tell you again how many points you got.

Still, if it’s audio quality you’re concerned with, you can find better-sounding speakers at this price. The option to sync the Echo up with an external sound system and use it more strictly as a point of control would be a good fix, and a nice touch for the audiophiles out there. That’s an option with the pint-sized Echo Dot, but not with the full-sized Echo. Amazon seems pretty committed to the idea of the Echo as an all-in-one device.

They have many products in the Dashboard to choose from. They use a Review Leaderboard to pick top Elite Deal Club reviewers to receive Amazon Gift Cards (possible violation of Amazon Reviewer rules.) Like AMZRC above, they too have a great affiliate program that pays! Available for reviewers in USA, UK, and Canada.

I also tried to look at the technical support mentioned in the back of the book with the DVD for help. I can get to the main page, but there is no content at all.

Great article! Thanks for your help personalizing my profile- I didn’t realize that was something I could do! I was wondering if you’ve ever personally contacted companies to test their products or if they generally just approach you? I really considered going the “bold” and “direct” route you mentioned, but I don’t want to get into trouble from Amazon either, haha. Also- if they contact you- is it always through your email- or is there a way for them to contact you through Amazon?

The Platform offers reviewers a personalized profile page, documenting their reviewing history. If a reviewer has completed at least one review in two years, they become a ‘Recognized Reviewer’. ‘Outstanding Reviewer’ status is awarded to those who belong to the top 10th percentile in terms of the number of completed reviews for a specific journal in two years. Editors can also hand pick reviewers and award them with a ‘Certificate of Excellence’ and other perks.

There are more popping up all the time, but there are a select few with great reputations that you can be sure will deliver what they promise. After testing a whole range of sites ourselves we have come up with a list of the most trusted product testing sites below.

One Opinion Panel is a Top Rated Product Testing Company and I receive several products a month.  They have exclusive high paying focus groups to join paying their members $100 or more! 💰 Pays by Cash, PayPal and Visa Prepaid Cards

By Vangie Beal In electronic commerce, product reviews are used on shopping sites to give customers an opportunity to rate and comment on products they have purchased, right on the product page. Other consumers can read these when making a purchase decision. Often, the company will include a URL on printed literature or e-mail marketing to invite customers to review their service after a transaction has been completed.

I tried Uberzon club however after attempting to purchase at least 30 offers I have yet to get a single one to accept the promo-code provided in the emailed offer. I am informed each time that the code is invalid. This is true even when attempting to purchase immediately after receiving the email, therefore not caused by the limit of available offers having been filled. It’s a bit disappointing as I thought the club was a really great way to try out new products. I’ll try a few more of these, thanks to your amazing list. Hoping I’ll find one that is what it claims. Thanks for the info!

AMZRC has wider inventory than most because their seller fees are lower. The savings are passed onto you, the shopper, with more coupon codes. This means more people can try out a single product and there are more discounted and free products to choose from!

“amazon product review email +how to get free amazon products for a review”

I read some places that you need to be ranked so high to be considered, but I’ve never bothered to verify that, because it won’t affect how I write reviews. I’d love to be a Vine member, but only if an invitation were extended with how I write reviews naturally. That seems in contrast to some Vine reviews I read, which come across as an attempt to market the product.

If you want to add more emails to your email sequence, you can do it. However, I wouldn’t recommend it, because that could be considered both spammy for Amazon and annoying for your customers. Also, if you combine marketing inserts with email follow-up sequences, the chances of getting more reviews will considerably increase.

wow, louida, you have a nice picture in the meet me. and the other small one hello is a good one too. its nice to meet you. you are a really nice person. you deserve to be thanked for all of your help. you are so kind.

These days, almost any “generic” item that you buy is sold from an (often Chinese) drop-shipper who invents a company name on the fly. Usually that company name is just two completely random words joined together, in order to avoid trademark infringement. E.g. “CoolPow” or “Flying Show”. Heck, I’ve even seen drop-shippers get lazy and use names like “abcGOOdef”. Seriously?

Actually, Amazon does require that you have an account and you’ve purchased something before you can review. I’m an author, and I had 5 different people buy a book directly from me, and when they went to review it, because they hadn’t ever bought anything, they weren’t allowed to. I tested the theory by making a dummy account, and I was told the same thing.

Snagshout is one of the more popular Amazon Review Sites. Snagshout only allows you to review one product at a time, meaning you have to order the product, test it, review it, and get it verified by the Snagshout team before you can review another product.

Do you regularly write reviews on Amazon? Are you a Vine member? Can you share any tips or tricks on how to get invited into the program? What has Amazon sent you to review? Let us know in the comments. 

Lowercase Alpha is looking for beta testers for smartphone apps. They send you apps that haven’t launched yet so you can give them feedback. Available worldwide (though I believe you need a North American phone number to sign up.)

Thank you for the clarification DeJay, and sorry for seeming so offended. In truth, I may have been a tad bit reactionary, which is soooo unlike me and now I’m embarrassed… Regardless of my unintended act of muddying the waters, I do see your point and agree. Admittedly, I sometimes wonder where the hell some of those suggestions “based on my browsing history” come from. An algorithm which is far beyond my capacity to understand, no doubt.

You can not do this on all phones, you may have to use a laptop/tablet to do it. If you try and submit the text/video and images at the same time, the approval process is longer. The screen videos and images much more closely. For some reason though, they do not do it on Edits. Videos and images can take anywhere from no time at all to post to up to a few days depending on what is going on at Amazon. Good luck! Lynn

There are good ways to operate other than what is the “Amazon” way and what has been done for the last 20 years. Hire people who have different backgrounds and different opinions to enhance the culture and add diversity of thought.

Keep an eye out on us please. We’re soon to launch our beta platform, and would appreciate a good word to help us buildup a reviewer base. Our Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/buviewing?ref=hl and we know that there are many folks who want to do reviews, get free stuff, and earn a bit too. Thanks, and feel free to IM in FB.

As the name implies, the focus is on Toilet Tree products. At the point of writing, they claim that their membership number is adequate and not looking out for more. But they use to recruit new members on weekly basis. So just fill out the form and they will get in touch if they see you as a good addition to their pool of members.

and then i read your listing about product testing companies — and these same companies were in the list. so, i went back to each of them and scoured them, looking for a way to do anything else besides “just” take surveys, and was looking for a way to be able to “test products” instead, but could find no solution or answer.

I couldn’t find a single five-star review with a “Verified Purchase” tag confirming that the reviewer had bought the product. Meanwhile, every single one of the 19 one-star reviews for the Samcable dongles were verified purchases, and all had the same basic complaint: “Doesn’t work.” Here’s a taste of what you’d see from one-star reviews:

Social proof is some powerful stuff, and the more proof you have, the more potent it becomes. An item rated as 4.5 stars reviewed by 10 people won’t sell as well as an item rated as 4 stars reviewed by 300 people. More reviews look better, are more convincing, and boost your visibility when someone searches for your product on Amazon.

By enrolling in their EtekCitizen program, you can receive discounted promotions and free giveaways. EtekCitizen is broken down into four different product categories: healthy living, smart living, active living, and smart living.

Additionally, reviewers may give their opinions on items for which they have no expertise or real experience and therefore have no frame of reference about how well something works by comparison. It’s hard to say how good something is if you don’t know what else is out there.

I asked around at work to see if anyone have a charger for it and a flashlight that could fit it. They didn’t. So, I reviewed the packaging and quality of the materials, and I also made sure to alert other potential buyers that it looked like a AA battery but was in fact a larger one for super bright flashlights. I recently got a free flashlight that does use that battery size and will be updating my review.

“Consumers definitely can notice when a review is fake,” said Alex Tarnoff, senior consultant at Vivaldi Partners Group. “Obviously, fake review writers are becoming more sophisticated, but there’s a lack of genuineness of overall tone or over the top in praise, or the inverse, with negatives. It does hurt Amazon’s credibility a bit.”

The article has some good points but focuses a lot on fake reviews. More problematic in my opinion are the worthless reviews from real people who never actually used the product they got for free (or, nowadays, for a few pennies.) Or the Vine reviewer who eBays the products without opening the package – you can tell.

Customer reviews are one of the most valuable tools we offer customers for making informed purchase decisions, and we work hard to make sure they are doing their job. In just the past year, we’ve improved review ratings by introducing a machine learned algorithm that gives more weight to newer, more helpful reviews; applying stricter criteria to qualify for the Amazon verified purchase badge; and suspending, banning or suing thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews.

I turned to two sites, Fakespot and ReviewMeta, which use publicly available review metadata and algorithms to try to suss out which reviews are “unreliable” or “unnatural.” The Samcable listing with 673 total reviews got a grade of F from Fakespot, with it declaring that 100 percent of the reviews were “low-quality.” After discarding what its algorithm determined were untrustworthy reviews, it adjusted that 4.6 average rating down to a 0.0 rating. ReviewMeta wasn’t much kinder. The highly rated Samcables went from an average review score of 4.6 to 1.1 using ReviewMeta’s criteria, deeming only 81 reviews out of the 673 not unnatural in some way.

“We all like to think we can always stay objective. But if you didn’t purchase the product to fill a need, the flaws just don’t bother you as much. And if you don’t have to consider sending it back, you’re not going to think about the flaws as much.”

For pinecone research is it possible to complete just surveys without having to do any product testing? Do they notify you prior to sending you a product or do they just show up at your door? And would you happen to know how one would go about cancelling their membership with this panel? Thanks in advance!

Be aware that Amazon is cracking down on these things! We have had several customers who have left reviews that Amazon either chose not to post or pulled down after they were posted. We are talking about verified purchases too! After contacting Amazon, they could not give any real solid answers as to why, and that the customer should contact them directly. They are really difficult to work with as a seller!

“amazon product review removal -amazon product review dataset”

Promotional Reviews – In order to preserve the integrity of Customer Reviews, we do not permit artists, authors, developers, manufacturers, publishers, sellers or vendors to write Customer Reviews for their own products or services, to post negative reviews on competing products or services, or to vote on the helpfulness of reviews. For the same reason, family members or close friends of the person, group, or company selling onAmazon may not write Customer Reviews for those particular items.

Contact those who leave you negative reviews. Ignoring these won’t make them go away. Try to respond to negative reviews, especially if you think the reviewer is justified in their complaint or other customers have complained about the same issue. Take this opportunity to learn from your clients and improve your business.

There is a very good reason to suggest that people do NOT use their regular Amazon purchasing e-mail address in their profile. There could be scammers lurking the info pages looking for addresses that they might be able to use to try to get fake orders placed through Amazon.

Get on the same sites as your customers. Being social and accessible is the best way to get honest feedback. Make your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts easily accessible from your store so customers can reach out with comments and questions. If you have a brick-and-mortar business, like Milk + Honey Spa, you’ll also want to have a profile on Yelp and Google Places.

The only condition was that those reviewers would have to disclose their affiliation with the business in question in the text of their review. Reviewers were generally offered the product for free or at a discounted price, in exchange for their review.

Please do review the novella Before We Were Perfect by S.D. Moore. It’s a romantic dramedy based on true events that has humor and intense military, health and adult themed drama without being raunchy. The true events are discussed in the afterword. The page count on Amazon is incorrect. The book has 198 pages. The Kindle version has three formatting issues that are beyond the control of the publisher. A review is greatly appreciated.

(2) Once you go through the install process, click NO when it asks if you want to install the updates. According to what I read, if you say YES, it assumes a previous install/registration has taken place and then the game won’t run at all. If you happen to go through the updates, just uninstall the software via their instructions and start over. This shouldn’t affect anything since the key code was never entered. Others have stated that once you register and start the game the first time, just quit and restart the game to do the updates then.

Nevertheless, the proliferation of fake reviews means consumers need to be cautious when relying on ratings. Tools are available to help shoppers figure out whether reviews can be trusted, such as Fakespot. The site was created by software designer Saoud Khalifah, who said he was inspired after he bought a sleep supplement with glowing reviews — but didn’t work. 

In addition to managing feedback, FeedbackFive allows merchants to manage Amazon Product Reviews. Sellers can build custom solicitation rules using our Email Campaign feature. Merchants can even upload a list of ASINs that they wish to track. Receive real-time email alerts to be notified of new reviews.

Soon after you get your first clients, you will get more Amazon reviews on social media from happy buyers and be able to secure your success in Amazon selling. Increase your profit and enjoy your growth!

If you’re willing to review products from particular sellers, you can get free or deeply discounted products for review on Amazon. If you use a blog instead, it is slightly more difficult, requires more work.

Like a few other review sites mentioned here, VIP Power Club will notify you when deals are available instead of crawling through their database and applying for products. Most offers are between 90% and 100% off and you can expect to pay no more than $5 for most items.

Important: Before you can post a review, you need to have an Amazon.com account that has successfully been charged for the purchase of a physical or digital item. Free digital downloads don’t qualify. You don’t need to have purchased the product you’re reviewing. There’s a 48-hour waiting period after your first physical order has been completely shipped, or your digital item has been purchased, before you’ll be able to submit your review. If you’ve purchased a digital gift for someone else, the 48-hour waiting period doesn’t begin until the gift has been redeemed.

Have you ever gone to a play and gave a standing ovation at the end? You have, right? And chances are you didn’t start the standing O. It’s unlikely you were even the third or fourth to stand. Chances are you stood up and clapped like a seal only when it was clear that an ovation trend had started. This is the power of social proof.

I’ve questioned if I should email and we discuss this directly, but then I decided that if I include it here, perhaps it will help someone else in the future. I have edited out the specifics about the product and the code, etc.

One important thing that can happen as a result of doing this work is that you will make relationships with bloggers your industry. These relationships can be very important and beneficial for years to come. When you approach a blogger be sure to be very genuine and treat the conversation as you would a real-life business or networking relationship.

Note: It can take up to 3 days after the order is completed or canceled for the “Leave seller feedback” button to appear next to the order in Your Orders page. You have 90 days from the date of your order to leave your rating and comments.

It’s worth noting at this stage that not every user of product testing sites gets sent something to test. This is because there are 1000s of users and they simply can’t afford to send out 1000+ free TVs for example. But they do say, if you don’t buy a ticket you can’t win the raffle…

I recommend reviewing products you are interested in getting more of (and own, of course.) So, if you are looking to get more baby or audio products, then make sure you review a lot of baby and audio products. I recently reviewed a few of the popular baby toys and items around the house, and now I get hit up about baby items A LOT. The key is to review popular or mainstream items. I believe suppliers often target those reviewers first since there are usually hundreds of reviewers to choose from. In fact, some suppliers have told me that they found me via another item’s review I wrote.

Agreed, I’ve received discounted products to review as well and I am a Prime Amazon member so I’d hate to fool my fellow consumers. Just because I received it with a heavy discount doesn’t mean I’m handing out stars like a kindergarten teacher. It really just takes common sense to figure out if a product is worth buying or giving a shot.

Contact those who leave you glowing reviews. If you notice a glowing review on Yelp or a pretty tagged pic on Instagram, say thanks! Man Crates does a great job of following up and socializing their positive reviews. You can also ask for permission to share their shoutout on your site or social media channels.

Jump Send helps me to grow my business without spending hours on tedious tasks. The time I save is worth the investment alone, but what’s even better is that it also has a profound impact on increasing my sales!

I signed up for snagshout yesterday and was able to snag 2 deals the same day. At first it said my limit was 1, but after I entered my amazon profile url and snagged my first item it told me my limit had increased to 2, so I snagged another. It said I’ve earned a “helpful” badge, based on the helpful votes on reviews I had previously written. I should receive both items in the next day or 2,with prime.

Reward those who review. For example, you could provide every client who gives you a review a 10% off coupon. And you don’t even need to let them know this is coming their way. The surprise factor will add an extra bit of “wow” to their experience.

“how to get products for amazon review |amazon india products review”

I’ve been with Bzzagent for over 8 years and they have NEVER offered money payments. They do however offer mypoints for every product test report you file as well as their follow up survey. The best one I got from Bzzagent was a Sonicare Flexcare toothbrush with the UV Sanatizer values at almost 200.

“over the last year or two i’ve realized that most of the stuff sold by amazon itself is crappy and amazon as reseller itself has seemingly become a place for getting rid of low quality products that probably could not be sold by higher quality establishments/out of brick and mortar store shelves. i bought regular drugstore quality boxed dye fulfilled by amazon, package had already been pryed open. my dad bought a cell phone holder, broken. matcha tea, expiration date removed. a supposedly amazing noncomedogenic skin product that was supposed to moisturize, nothing but clog pores. on and on. in addition, prices for household items don’t seem to be higher than at target or other large retailers, if the product can even be found not in bulk, so i stopped even looking for those. for the harder to find items that i must shop online for, i used to think if a product was fulfilled or sold by amazon i could trust the quality, but my experiences and those of my family have consistently proven otherwise. and i can see i’m not alone – in reading reviews of products sold by or fulfilled by amazon, it seems that often there are a number complaining that the product that received seemed fake and unlike what they are used to buying elsewhere or that that product was opened/expired/missing something/ broken. in fact, in looking in the q&a sections of the product pages or when going to the website of the original manufacturer of several of the products i purchased, the companies even disclaim that they cannot stand by the quality of their products that are sold/fulfilled by third party vendors such as amazon.

The best way to find UK reviewers is to go to Amazon UK and search for products that are similar to the one(s) you want reviewed. Look for the most recent well-written reviews and click through to their profile pages until you find ones with email addresses listed. Reach out to them that way.

L’Oreal Consumer Testing Program: When L’Oreal develops new makeup, skincare, or haircare products, they look for women to test them. You’ll get to keep everything you test and you may even get some bonus products for completing your review.

We really do wish we could give you an awesome list of sites where you could just plug away at asking for reviews. But the point is that this just takes digging. Every product is different and every online world surrounding a product type is vastly different. To see what we mean, have a look at the example below where a maternal clothing brand is being reviewed on mamabblog.com.

I encourage the online retailers that I work with to only accept reviews from product owners, but not all can do it. Retailers that sell online and also run brick and mortar stores sometimes don’t have their in-store point-of-sale systems linked to their website and therefore can’t match up the shopper’s identity to verify the purchases.

I’ve notice with Survey Panels that women with children get more opportunities to test products. This may be the reason why you don’t get as many. There is no way to say how many products you’ll be able to test each month with companies, it all depends on your demographic. Make sure to fill out any screeners a survey panel sends you for a better chance to get into product testing.

To update your profile, navigate to “My Account” (see pulldown menu next to Cart/Basket), then scroll down to “Personalization” section and click on “Your Public Profile.” In the left column under your picture you should see an “Edit” button. Clicking it will bring up the dialogue box you see below. Fill out only what you are comfortable sharing, and never display things such as your home address, children’s names, social security number or other personally identifiable information. And do not link to anything that has that information.

I have used or attempted to use over a dozen of these “free for review” websites. I started doing this sometime in April or May. A lot of these websites either have only so-so deals or they never seem to approve anything, even after months of trying…. But a few have been good. By far the best deals i’ve found are on “AMZ Review Trader” and “Review Kick”. The thing is that You have to be patient. In the beginning (for a month or so) they were slow to approve deals. And initially they would only approve one or two at a time. But once you are established on the site and they see that you will leave a quality review (be thorough, and adding some nice pics helps) you will get approved faster. Over time the sellers offering the better deals will start to approve you more. And the websites will also let you redeem more coupon codes at once. I’ve gotten awesome freebies from both sites over the past few months. Sometimes items aren’t totally free but are very heavily discounted and it is totally worth it.

This review program is part of the Honstek brand of headphones speakers. Like Mengo, GMYLE Lab, and Anker, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. Available to reviewers in USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Japan.

What I do care about re:reviews is that while you may be as good as gold, there is an unfortunate connotation that if someone gets something for free that there might be a tendency to review less harshly. When it’s your money on the line you get more annoyed if something isn’t up to snuff. That’s a tendency.

Testimonials  and product reviews can be one of your greatest sales tools. Over 70% of consumers say they look at product reviews before making a purchase and nearly 63% indicate they are more likely to buy from a site that has product ratings and reviews. Social proof can reassure hesitant shoppers, provide additional context and reduce returns by ensuring buyers are satisfied with their purchase.

This is a fairly new review club with a large marketplace of products in a very wide range of categories from small electronics, household goods, kitchen items, arts and crafts, sewing, pet supplies and a lot more. Available for reviewers in the USA.

I accidentally stumbled upon this and people who do reviews on Amazon and not part of the precious vine elite (and I never felt that way until tonight) are called liars and people with no integrity or morals. I posted a question as to why people getting discounts to review are not honest and isn’t a discount or free product from one just like taking a discount or free product from another. That was a huge mistake, and I don’t say this lightly. I was bombarded with the most vile humiliating replies. I was called names and told I was just a couponer wanting to get anything I could. Which I might say is far from the truth. I have only accepted offers or codes for items I have wanted to compare to products I am using or accepted a code for an item I truly have wanted. I know some will not always be honest as they should so they will get offers, I am not one of them. I want a product that works. I also respect others and would not want to mislead others. Yet tonight I wanted to close my Amazon account and never buy on that site again. I’ve been a prime member for years with the Amazon Fire tv box, the works of all Amazon offers.

This is a great question. I had a similar situation where I received a product (a battery) I could not fully test it because it was a size I could not use. I struggled with the same dilemma as you: do I simply review that it arrived promptly? That the packaging for it was adequate and minimal? Note the quality of the materials I can see?

That is a conundrum for sure, and I think Tristan gives a good resolution idea as usual. Considering the problems existing for reveiwers, both those our peers have brought on us, and those sellers bring on us; I’ve concluded that to ever type, like, or in any way give a review or a like for something I didn’t try isn’t acceptable.

In their announcement, Amazon said they “prohibit incentivized reviews unless they are facilitated through the Amazon Vine program”. This doesn’t mean they don’t allow incentivized reviews anymore, rather it means they want to control them through their own program because “Vine has important controls in place”.

You don’t need Vine to participate in Amazon giveaway’s and discounts. Check out amzrc.com for some awesome deals that you can get for a huge discount. Just leave an honest review in exchange for getting such a great deal!

As the name suggests, you will be writing reviews about softwares. You can expect to get paid up to $50 dollars for each software review you write. They have a list of softwares that you can write reviews on. Although, you are limited to only 3 reviews a day.

I think Amazon should take this review devaluing more seriously! And maybe a few rounds of region-based boycott’s would help them take notice? Instead they dink around w/ taking or giving Prime Benefits or spin off more fee based memberships with new names! Aye! BTW, has anyone made a Hitler reaction video yet?

Still, the Echo is more than a souped-up speaker with Siri-like smarts — it’s the connected home experience you didn’t know you wanted. It’s no longer the first Alexa gadget I’d recommend, but it’s still a fascinating product and a worthy buy if you can catch it on sale during Prime Day or Black Friday.

So you’re saying that it is human nature is to be jealous of people who “get things for free” and vindictive enough to write articles badmouthing them? But at the same time, people who “get things for free” are free from biases and the incentives to write good reviews so you keep getting “things for free?” Okay.

The site is in German. They have a large marketplace of products with a category filter to help you sort through it. Products ranging from electronics to apparel, household goods and much more. Available for reviewers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Tracy, there is no telling when they will get back to you. I’d imagine it all depends on how busy they are and whether or not they have an upcoming test. I would wait a few weeks and then try to contact them. Good luck.

I reported this violation to Amazon. They said they will not intervene. So beware when you post your coupons on this site or any site that does not allow you to screen the reviewers. It is your responsibility to protect yourself. No one will do it for you. I learned my lesson the hard way.

Great article, but I did not set up reviews as all my items are one of a kind antique etc and when it is sold it is removed is there a way to set up reviews for the store or web site? Any suggestions?

Please reach out to Amazon about this issue. We do not control reviews, reviewers, or what they do on Amazon. This is a blog, that’s it. We don’t have reviewers, and I have no way to intervene or help out in this matter.

Take a cool down. Negative reviews can sting, which is why your first step upon receiving a negative Amazon customer review should be to simply step back. Take a day or even several to cool down and then assess the situation with a clear mind. Is there any merit to the review? Maybe this is a clue to how you can improve your product. Is it a pure emotional tirade? Other uses can sense a baseless rant, so while your star ratings may be affected, users who take the time to read your 1-star reviews may see the senselessness of a bad review. If the review is blatantly emotional, these cool down days may be as beneficial for you as for the reviewer – they may be able to realize their earlier review was unreasonable and be open to editing it.

“amazon product review direct link |get amazon products in exchange for review”

There’s always a chance for a scam and websites come and go. With any website, only invest a small amount of money (if any) before you buy a lot of products to sell to make sure you like working with the site and to make sure it isn’t a scam.

You could copy/paste the product description and it would let you know the % possibility that the product was shilled/confirm that it has been shilled? Hell, what if it could strip the shill reviews and re-score the product? Maybe all this could popup in a little browser plugin?

We focus on helping bloggers and online reviewers who write reviews on their blogs, or on sites/services like Yelp, TripAdvisor, Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube, Goodreads or post helpful comments online.  If you have a product you’d like to share with our worldwide audience of reviewers and charity event organizers, please fill out our easy “Products Offered for Review” request form (HERE). 

Smiley360 is a product and retail review site, not only working with Amazon products and reviews. You could be asked to review a very wide range of things. Available to reviewers in USA (maybe elsewhere?)

absolutely! the goodies should always be post the review more as a thank you gesture for the review, and not as an enticement for a good review. the moment you start doing it the other way round it loses its credibility.

The exact amount is $50.00. I to am an author and have continuously run into this little snag. Over half of my friends and family rarely use Amazon. So when I ask them to leave reviews, they make the attempt. But since they haven’t spent in excess of $50, Amazon won’t allow it. And even if they have, half the time it still won’t go through.

I signed up for the survey spot and its just mentioning surveys for points(im on enough survey sites) its not mentioning product testing. also, ive been on mysurvey, I-say,and global market for a little bit now and ive only ever seen surveys, never offers for product testing

I’m not sure how long the requests will continue to come in, and for now I will continue for as long as I am enjoying it, although I find that I am having to dedicate 1- 2 days per week at the moment solely to write the reviews which I don’t mind at all and find has been great as I took a career break a couple of years ago to stay at home so having a informal but “work like” structure a couple of days a week has been very enjoyable for me.

Still, it’s not likely that merchants are going to stop trying to game the system. More is at stake than ever before: The National Retail Federation expects online sales to jump as much as 10 percent to $117 billion this holiday season. 

The reason for product testing is that Top Name Brands would like to know what consumers think about newest products they’re developing to be sent to stores, but before they do that they need your opinions.  This way, it’ll save them time and money if the product doesn’t do well and need changes.

Understand how to properly write a quality review. Each review should provide information that is descriptive and helpful to someone interested in buying the product. Aim for (at minimum) 75 words and use complete sentences. Be sure to include the appropriate disclaimer: “I received this product for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.” OR “I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.” If you want more tips on writing great reviews straight from Amazon, go HERE .

Hi I got an email yesterday offering me a coupon code to get their product to review it. I checked the code in amazon and yes is legit and I should get the product for free. I’m not part of the vine program (haven’t been asked) and this is the first time I get an email from a vendor from amazon asking me to review their product. So my question is, is it normail that they ask me to share with them my order number? I have the item ready in my card with their provided cupón applied and all but I haven’t “bought” it because the next step would’ve to email them and tell them my order number… is that safe and normal? Thanks!

Thank you for letting me know about Fiverr…I went and had a look and I cannot believe that people are selling this service and that it actually seems to very popular, wow!! My eyes really have been opened to this reviewing game, there really is another whole new world on Amazon with this carry on I never knew existed. Funny I was looking through the reviews on a product I had been sent after I read your reply and every one of the 48 reviews were down voted apart from the 3 top rated ones…such shady business. The article you are thinking of writing would be excellent in exposing this…I do agree that this needs to be exposed and I do think Amazon need to be taking it seriously and help combat it! Good luck with it Tristan, I look forward to reading it….

I’ll admit it. Shopping for a personal tank can be a bit daunting. Many times in the past I’ve purchased overpriced, so-called “battle tanks”, then driven them into battle only to be wrecked in ten minutes by the first blow off of some insurgents home-made morter.

We identify the writer as either a verified purchaser or un-verified purchaser. This aligns with normal ecommerce practices to capture the user ID of the person who writes the review and provides for better authoring, and discourages bad behavior.

The good news is you can get tons of reviews on Amazon for your book or product in a legitimate and honest way. The key is to proactively seek out reviewers. There are a number of people on Amazon who have bought and reviewed products or books that compete with yours. If you simply identify who these people are, and then offer to send them your product for an honest review, they are likely to do it. And since they already reviewed a competing product to yours, their review is highly credible.

I finally remembered to respond to this! I just wrote this email to a Seller. They reached out to me with something I wasn’t interested in, so I found an item in their store I was interested in reviewing (and had a need for.) The URL to the product has been redacted, but you get the point.

Such a cool article here. I am always looking forward this author and other authors on Wirecutter. I think the authors are far more intelligent than other authors you find elsewhere. Many of them are alos very funny. Sometimes I laugh and laugh and laugh.

The products on display at Product Elf is impressive (perhaps only second to AMZ) and they do an amazing job to keep their website updated almost on daily basis (so the freshness is always there – in term of product variation and look and feel of the web page).

Over the past 3 years, I have signed up for dozens of these product testing programs listed below, receiving well over a hundred products for free. Furthermore, I have scoured the web looking for secret VIP product tester lists for companies and brands. And, because we send thousands of people to these sites each month, some of these companies asked us to help launch them by including them on this list.

I do think there is a notable difference between ‘free’ and ‘discounted’, paying even a couple dollars for something seems to have some notable psychological effect. So I’m not a fan of Vine, which does special shipments of things a reviewer might not have any interest in at zero cost. However, *some* of these discount-in-exchange-for-a-review sites my wife has been using actually have some merit.

Defendants are in the business of providing such fake reviews. Each of the John Doe defendants in this action utilizes the website Fiverr.com (“Fiverr”) to sell Amazon reviews. Fiverr is a global online marketplace offering tasks and services,  beginning at a cost of $5 per job performed, from which it gets its name. The site is

No. Members are not paid to participate in the program or to write reviews. Members will receive free product in exchange for writing reviews. There is no pressure or expectation to write positive reviews, and negative reviews do not affect membership in the program.

i am a reviewer i get things for free or at a discount and test the product thouroughly and I don’t care if i got it for free or at a discount if it is bad i say it is bad. i got a book for free and looked up some of the phrases because it just didn’t sound right and found that 90% of the book was plagerized and I put that in my review. if something is good i will say it is good but if it is not i don’t feel any obligation to anyone to say it is good when it isn’t. i get emails from the company the day I receive it to please leave the review but I wait and try it out i will wash things a few times and let my kids play with stuff for a while before I review it. All the reviewers are not leaving fake reviews.

Reviewers find reviewing an important and rewarding activity, but the work is almost invisible to the outside world, and hardly ever rewarded. The Reviewer Recognition Platform is designed to change that.

DooYoo is a website where you are paid to write reviews that can help others make decisions about buying a product. You simply write reviews on products and services you have used, sharing your experience with others who might be interested in buying the same product or services as well. Each time you write a review on any product or service, you earn what are called “DooYooMiles”. You also earn additional points every time your reviews is read by other people. They also give prizes every month to the best product reviews of the month.

The only sites that I know of that give free kids stuff are the ones that giveaway baby stuff like diapers. I have heard of people who contact toy companies directly and were able to get free toys for their kids to “test”. Other than that, I don’t know of any. I’ll update this page if I find any.

They have many products in the Dashboard to choose from. They use a Review Leaderboard to pick top Elite Deal Club reviewers to receive Amazon Gift Cards (possible violation of Amazon Reviewer rules.) Like AMZRC above, they too have a great affiliate program that pays! Available for reviewers in USA, UK, and Canada.

crowdtap is great i won almost 100 bucks in gift cards total over 2 months, the person above what they mean is when it comes to food stuff, they send a whole box of goodies like hidden valley ranch had one through them and you got a huge bottle of ranch, dipping bowls, packets, coupons. stuff like that.

I have never bought a single product on Amazon that didn’t have a review, and I am sure I am not alone. Most people use Amazon reviews as one of their main tools for considering whether to buy a product or not.

Hi Megan, great article. A lot of useful insights and tips here. Amazon really turned the seller world upside down when they banned incentivized reviews, but there is always a work around, as you have outlined above. Thanks

Jump Send  has built an industry leading automated email campaign tool to email all organic buyers. This lets sellers provide an exceptional customer experience.In addition, with promotional giveaways, sellers can increase their search rank and sales velocity all in one place.

If Amazon actually made it as easy to post reviews about the shipping and purchase process as for products themselves, then I would believe they care about that. But they don’t because they don’t want their own problems highlighted. It’s not as if this was unintentional; Bezos’ “Iron Rule” is not that ignorant.

Since Amazon is famous for its extensive line of products, their low prices, and great convenience, this news put their customer’s trust, one of Amazon’s core assets, on the line. They needed to fix this, or else, their business would be affected.

I tried this with some success, but only got 10% or less who actually reviewed the book. For the most part, it was a successful effort as I got realistic reviews and many people did like the book. BUT, there are some wild and crazy folks out there who do things like complain that on page ten you used the word rouge and they don’t like that word. Or who find two grammar mistakes and claim it makes the book unreadable and so they give you a 2 star review. That’s okay, because that is the person’s honest opinion, but I finally got tired of these folks, and of the folks who took a free copy and then had not reviewed the book six months later. I am going to give up on this self-publishing thing, though I admit it has been fun.

6.      Say thank you! One of my all time favorite books, How to Win Friends and Influence People (I swear, I’m not a self-help junkie, this is an eccentricity in my library), notes that all people crave sincere appreciation. Be sure to follow-up and thank the top Amazon reviewers for their thoughtful review – with sincerity of course!

You’d be surprised but as with most things online, being a top Amazon reviewer doesn’t come without risks. One Amazon reviewer reportedly gets regular hate mail, among them death threats. Other Vine reviewers say their reviews get negative feedback just because of their Vine badge.

Yes, this should seem different that what you expected because this is NOT how the process works in most cases. Sounds like this Seller is doing it all wrong, and frankly needs to be reported to Amazon if they don’t clean up their act. Personally, I recommend writing back to them and letting them know that you will NOT up-vote another review because it goes against Amazon policy, and if they continue to ask Reviewers to do this they (the Seller) can get be removed from Amazon. Amazon is suing Reviewers for a very similar practice of fake reviews and fake votes.

To my eyes, Amazon could make its reviews more reliable in several ways. For one easy thing, it could weight reviews from verified purchases more heavily in its system — if every positive review of a product isn’t a verified purchase, while every negative review is a verified purchase, that should have a much larger impact on the displayed average score. Amazon says it’s reducing the number of unverified-purchase reviews an individual account can leave per week; this is a helpful step forward, but more can and should be done.

It can be tedious, but sorting the reviews to see the most recent, looking at dates, and actual reading the reviews can help you identify common complaints about a product (runs small, thin material, arrived slowly…).

Start reviewing big ticket items you own that are in the categories you wish to be asked to review more items. Prove to Sellers that you can write a review that helps their sales. DO NOT inflate a rating to 5-stars in the hopes that it attracts big ticket items—this is counterproductive to what our community is here to do for the customer that relies on it to make a purchase.

Although, in theory, these reviewers could write their true opinion on the product – positive or negative – these incentivized reviews have tended to be overwhelmingly biased in favor of the product being rated.

I agree with all you’ve said, but I’d add that once you’ve done THOUSANDS of reviews, you really don’t worry too much about pleasing the vendors. I feel absolutely no need to please them – if they take me off their list, good, that’s fewer emails for me to go through anyway, it’s not like someone else won’t offer me a ton of things tomorrow.

When I first started completing surveys back in 2008, I believe I received my first product test survey within 1 to 2 months and I remember it was from SurveySpot to test coffee and I was paid $150! When I did this I was hooked! I started to sign up with as many Survey Panels I could find and I’m so glad I did!

Testimonials  and product reviews can be one of your greatest sales tools. Over 70% of consumers say they look at product reviews before making a purchase and nearly 63% indicate they are more likely to buy from a site that has product ratings and reviews. Social proof can reassure hesitant shoppers, provide additional context and reduce returns by ensuring buyers are satisfied with their purchase.

Sounds like the customer was still under the impression that discounted products meant you had to leave an incentivized review. Perhaps they just weren’t aware of it. As mentioned by others in this thread, if you didn’t break the rules I wouldn’t worry too much.

I now want to include the first email, as it doesn’t contain the same sort of errors. Which to me, says that I received a form email that has been prepared for employees to send to potential reviewers. And the reply was from the employee and was typed uniquely. Overall, that makes me feel better about it, but I still appreciate your feedback.

The publishing peer review reports pilot publicly recognizes reviewers’ intellectual contribution to accepted articles through the official publication of their reports. Review reports are attributed a separate DOI and are published next to the accepted paper on Science Direct. Participating journals include:

A lot of times it could be simple mix-ups or an employee making a mistake. I would contact them and find out whats going on before taking any more surveys. You dont want to be wasting your time for nothing.

I just bought a new (to me) book called Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely. My purchase decision was based on its reviews. Specifically the quantity. My irrational (yet predictable) conclusion to buy the book was based on its seemingly endless number of Amazon reviews. The irony.

I’m Not A Amazon Vine Customer, But I Would Like To Be… I’ve Bought A Few Items From Amazon And Have Never Had A Bad Thing To Say As I Have Always Been Satisfied With Every Item That I Have Bought From Sellers. I Have Always Recieved My Item On Time, My Product Has Always Looked As Described And Has Never Been Damaged.. I Would Recommend Amazon To The Public… 100% From Me.

I think Amazon has answered some of your requests. Reviews that come from the Vine program are labeled at the very top of the review with the phrase “ Vine Customer Review of Free Product”. This phrase is bright green text so you can’t miss it. This blurb is automatically attached by Amazon to any Vine review.

I was so excited to receive my first request to review a product from a manufacturer. Then, I came across the line saying they expected it to be no less than four stars. I tend to be extremely honesty. If the product is worthy of 4 or 5 stars, I would give it. I’ll admit, I tend to keep 5 star reviews for extremely outstanding products. I do give them, but few products or books are perfect. Is asking for a 4 or 5 star rating consider normal and is it ethical?

I bought a F181W drone, very easy to fly. Awesome flips, very clear picture on smart phone, and a card inside for a free battery just for writing the truth about my experience. Can this be any better! But when looking for free battery web page. It showed expired in June 16 2017 But I bought this great product in Dec of 2017 how can this be. Well a deal is a deal, Hoping for someone to make this right. Would like to wright another review on how I received a free battery.
