These changes will apply to all product categories other than books, as Amazon has always allowed advance copies of books to be distributed, the retailer notes. Amazon also says it has other ideas about making Vine more useful in the future, but didn’t go into detail.

Within seconds after signing up, your FeedbackFive account goes to work and automatically solicits feedback from customers. Based on your preferences, you can tell FeedbackFive how often and for which products to solicit Amazon feedback. Set it once, and watch the feedback roll in.

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

Amazon’s Vine Program is an invite-only group of reviewers that receive products for free in exchange for impartial reviews. They will often receive products before they are released. Amazon explains its purpose:

I wrote the following as a review of the product in question and it was rejected. I understand the reason – I was not really reviewing the product. I have not been able to find a place where I can send it to Amazon.

Update: Amazon Review Sites can no longer require you to leave a review, but they are strongly encouraged. By having a strong Amazon Profile, you’re more likely to have sellers approve you for a discounted product.

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 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.

Once you’re accepted as a Vine reviewer you will want to make sure you follow the guidelines of the program. You are limited to two products at a time and you must write and post your reviews of received products before you can request additional items. Be sure to leave a review within 30 days of delivery.

How I review is based on my personal experience with the item , value of the product for the price paid ( the listed price , not my discount ), quality of the product and if it really is as its listed . Everything I base my review on is the same as I base my reviews on full price items , I would be lying otherwise and not helping anyone who is really in the market .

The immediate benefit of reviews is that they can make your future customers feel that much more confident. The more reviews you have, the more convinced a shopper will be that they’re making the right decision.

In a study of U.S. Department of Agriculture data, CR found pesticide levels in some fruits and vegetables were too high. Shortly after, one of the pesticides was banned for use on food crops commonly consumed by children.

Amazon, for its part, says that it’s actively adjusting its algorithms to fight sham reviews. The company says it uses a combination of human moderation and machine learning to combat fake reviews, though declined to say how many actual human moderators are involved in the effort. It suggests that sellers who want reviews look to the Amazon Vine program, which offers products to trusted reviewers. There’s also the Amazon Early Reviewer program, a service Amazon offers sellers who need to get reviews from customers — Amazon will offer customers who purchase a product a small gift card from Amazon if they choose to review a product (whether that review is one star or five stars doesn’t matter). But both of these programs are geared toward higher-end or more established sellers; on message boards dedicated to selling on Amazon, many complain bitterly about the difficulty of getting into the program or its overall inefficacy compared to other methods.

Wonderful post. Thanks for sharing the insights. Would you mind throwing some light on not your product itself but the competition your product had prior to you entering. For example – I sell essential oil in the geated beauty category and since the competition is so fierce, I’m struggling to make organic sales. Indeed, sales and reviews seem to be the mantra for AMZ algo. I’m currently trending at 31 reviews and should hit the 50 review mark in 2 weeks hopefully. I’m truly hoping things start to change then.

Hi Michael,That seems very strange, since Amazon does not require users to purchase an item on Amazon before reviewing it. Unfortunately, sometimes it comes down to being persistent. Most of your requests for reviews will be rejected, but some of them will not be. Those few and far between reviews are the ones you are shooting for!

I’ve been testing products for money for the past 9 years, and love doing it!  I get about 4 to 5 full size products and sample products to test a month.  I’m getting the first exclusive look at up and coming products not yet on the market.

2. USE a MASTER COPY OF reviews (Mine is Called “NewEgg-000”) with ANY COMMENTS AND/OR WARNINGS AND SUCH and then just ADD your personal Review to this MASTER COPY. When you’re done with your NEW Review, then save this copy as “WHATEVER NAME-001” or “WHATEVER NAME-088” or whatever name/number you want to. This way if ANYONE has ANY QUESTIONS AND/OR COMMENTS about WHAT you said OR DIDN’T SAY you can provide them with the original Review. This saves a LOT of time AND arguments.

According to this article, vendors pay an extra fee which can range from $2,500 to $7,500 per ASIN to access the Vine program. The number of units per promotion is limited from 15 to 100 depending on the category.

Btw product testing is legit I got a polaroid camera and the film with it from them and all you have to do is write a review and they will leave you alone unless you enter another one but it’s legit and awesome.

Yeah if you Google anything about “product testing” I’ll always come up on the top of search list since I’m very knowledgeable about it and it is my passion. I’ve helped people all over the country to find ways to make extra money from home and join product testing. It’s a great feeling to know that I help make a difference in people lives and spreading the truth about free ways to earn extra money.

There are a few tips you should be aware of when you go on your product review quest to make sure you get the most bang from both a SEO and PR perspective. Chances are you will be able to discuss how you want your links to look in the review. If you get the opportunity to specify your links and link text then keep these tips in mind:

But what about strategies for moving forward? How do we continue to get (important) reviews, without incentivizing our customers? We asked Ivan Kreimer, an ecommerce business owner, ex online marketing consultant and content marketer to share his thoughts. 

I’m a stay at home mom to a 1 year old. I was hoping to earn money testing products. I’ve seen you listed how often you’ve received products and whether or not the pay was good/bad in the desciptions. Did it take some time for you to start receiving products? I’m a bit discouraged since I did complete my profile on each site and I’m not getting surveys. For TOLUNA I stumbled upon a place on the site (it was under “rewards”) where you can request to try products (this is where I found the toothbrush). Do I need to look around these other sites to see if I need to request products to test or does the “job” as a product tester come in the mail?

After years of CR’s advocating for standards to address the problem of blind zones behind cars and trucks, the Department of Transportation finally required backup cameras in all vehicles less than 10,000 pounds by 2018.

I am very confused about your idea of contacting a seller directly to review products. For example, if a company such as XYZ, Inc., is selling a Farberware pan for 20.00. Why would XYZ, Inc. give me a product made by Farberware to review for free? A favorable review really only benefits Farberware as the item can be purchased anywhere. Moreover, many sellers on Amazon sell the Farberware item so there might be 5 sellers for that one item. Am I supposed to contact all 5 sellers? What are their incentives to give me the pan for free when buyers can go to another seller and buy it? Lastly, many of the sellers on Amazon are amazon. I certainly cant ask Amazon to give me a product to review.

If you think it’s necessary, you may also ask customers to write a title (or headline), and to provide a broad location (such as a city and/or state). If you want customers to be able to include images or video, use an upload function that you’ve tested on all devices.

That is one reason why Amazon has become so popular and is arguably the most successful e-commerce site in Internet history. Now, it is even possible to shop for free when you shop through an Amazon review site.

I cover this in the post “The Downvoting Game on Amazon Reviews. They are targeting Sellers and Reviewers that paid money to others to write bogus reviews and up/down vote reviews for them. This is a case of some serious offenses, not Amazon going after reviewers that fail to put that they got the item for free or at a discount. In short, it’s fraud and deception they are trying to stop.

I hate all the Vine reviews. That’s great, you got something for nothing, good for you. But don’t expect me to believe your opinion is anywhere near as objective as someone who actually paid good money for the product they’re reviewing. Just look and see how many of the four and five star reviews are from Vine hucksters.

They’re no longer the hot new thing in the coupon space, but LivingSocial and Groupon can still alert you to amazing deals. You often have to act quickly to get a voucher, and smaller, local restaurants can get crowded after a sale, but the sites let you try new things, from massages to smoothies, for cut-rate prices. 

6. Always fill out your demographic information with each product testing website you’re signed up with. This helps them know which product testing surveys are better suited for you, and more than likely you’ll will qualify for.

I understand what you are saying with the FCC regulation, but Amazon reviews fall in the gray area. FCC is going after businesses that promote products. Bloggers, journalists, business Twitter and Facebook accounts, all must disclose if the article/post was in any way supported by another company looking to profit from it. I’ve read it and have yet to see anything specifically stating reviews fall in that category. The reviewer is not profiting from it the way a blogger or business does. I could be wrong and welcome anyone sending me a link to counter it.

5. Make contact. Once you identify potential reviewers, reach out to them explaining that you discovered their review on Amazon. Explain that you have a book or product that you think may be of interest to them, and would like to send it to them. Further explain that you are seeking an honest review of the item you send, but that they don’t have an obligation (this process is about inviting reviews, not forcing reviews). About 50 percent of the people who get my book, will post an honest review. And yes, there have been occasions where someone I identified in this method destroyed my book in their review, but that is the nature of a good review process.

There are a lot of good comments. At one point a couple years ago, when I was especially desperate for food money & funds to pay for my meds, I spent the better half of a year writing paid reviews (positive for & negative against competitors) for Amazon “verified purchases” and other sites like Newegg). I eventually just couldn’t stand my conscience complaining at me and stopped, but since I have wanted to contribute to combating both types of false reviews, because they’ve made reading reviews such a horrible time consuming hassle! If anyone wants a volunteer to test or develop algos for developing ways to weed out fake reviews, I’m happy to help! (PM/email only pls)

The company’s popular stand mixer and a handful of other products will come in four new shades of salmon, blue, pink and merlot. The company also showed off several new small appliances at the International Home and Housewares Show this weekend in Chicago.
