“review products amazon amazon products for review”

Love to read your post here. As a Chinese reader from China, the words from your post are better than those official page provided by amazon for me. lol…. I haven`t selling on amazon yet(I own an individual online store: itead.cc), but it will come soon. Your post is helpful for me to sell my products on amazon in the future. But now, there is also exist one question in my brain, that is how to let reviewers write something for my online site. Because I also want to my site get more visitors. Could you help me with this? If your could tell me some sites or blog for products, I will much appreciated for your help. Many Thanks!

The comments are interesting but most are incorrect if they believe that all discounted reviews are shill. I just received a request from an Amazon partner to do discounted item (for my honest revie). I though,t well if they think they are buying stars from me they are very wrong. I have no incentive to give bad or good reviews artificially. I don’t get anything extra. So people that paint a negative brush are quite wrong. It matters more to me to be honest because I buy items there at full price and don’t want to be fooled. Think about this too. Send it back. It’s easy as that. It’s a pain, but the situation isn’t all fake.. Common sense tells you that Amazon would nosedive.if this was the case.

I signed up for Toluna yesterday and qualified for a free product on my second survey. I just picked one of the shorter survey suggestions they emailed to me and it paid off. Thank you for recommending these sites! I heard about Pinecone Research and was thankful to receive the link on your blog. When I went to sign up it took me to productreportcard.com. Is this the right website? I was accepted in, but I don’t see the name Pinecone Research anywhere on the site. Also, do you know if ProductTestingUSA.com is a legitimate website?

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?

In other words: Unless you have a way to confirm with the person (or company) writing the review, or you are Amazon, it’s all conjecture. Keep in mind that these analyses are based on Fakespot’s techniques, so we have to take their word for it. We don’t have a way to verify how precise they are. However, you can make educated guesses. And if you’re in a hurry or in need of a second opinion, Fakespot can be a useful tool when you’re considering a purchase.

Yes with BzzAgent you do get points you can use on MyPoints.com to use your points on getting free merchandise. I actually never spend my points and just let it expire since all I care about with BzzAgent is getting the free products to test.

You have to act quickly, however, as they go incredibly fast. Most of the items listed won’t go above $30 at full retail value, but it’s pretty easy to snag a few decent products for only $1 – $2 dollars.

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!

So if you want to be considered, avoid leaving extremely brief reviews. Avoid complaining about something in the product that is clearly stated in the description. Think about the questions you were asking yourself before you took the plunge and ordered that $200 gadget that you knew you didn’t need but really, really wanted.

They have a huge marketplace supporting reviewers in 12 countries. And a contest they run each week giving away a $25 voucher. Available for reviewers in USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, China.

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.

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 again, who know who many will actually give me their product.

Liz, they don’t pay for every product. But with some products, they will send you a survey after a few weeks of you using the product, and if you answer those surveys, you will get paid a small amount.

New offers are emailed directly to your inbox every day and you can also browse the savings on their website. Other websites might offer more products on a daily basis, but, ProductTesting.co seems to offer quality items from a variety of product categories.

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.

Fakespot is part of the Amazon affiliate program. They get paid after you check an item then click the link to go back and purchase that or anything else in the next 24 hours. They have ZERO credibility and don’t even disclose they are an affiliate partner which is against FTC regulations!

You can test eight different types of their products ranging from cleanser to moisturizer to sunscreen. Most products cost $1.95 each after you use the discount code sent to you by email. It is free to join the Oz Naturals VIP email list.

Ilovetoreview.com gives you free and reduced priced items almost every day through amazon.com as long as you agree to review them. If you fail to submit your review within a certain amount of time you wont be able to recieve any more products. I have gotten everything from cookware to beauty products all full size complete products in exchange for my reviews.

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.

If you buy frequently from Amazon, then you’ll want to visit camelcamelcamel.com to track specific items on your list. The site will let you know as soon as prices drop on Amazon so you can time your purchase to get the best deal. 

Did you know that you can receive FREE and DEEPLY DISCOUNTED products from many companies, simply by agreeing to leave them a review on Amazon? Yes, it really is that easy! The companies will provide you with a coupon code to use at checkout to get the discount on the item up for review (most of the time the products are 100% free or $1). Shipping is free if you have Prime although we have seen free shipping from time to time for non Prime members. After you receive your item be sure to leave your review so you’ll be eligible for more offers!

An avid fan of the original E.V.O. Search For Eden, Spore is a wonderful game, that just doesn’t work well for later models of Windows unfortunately. Despite filtering through forums for solutions, nothing ever let me play this game again.

The whole point of the Vine program is to get early reviews; that’s what vendors pay Amazon for (and it’s not cheap to get your product in the Vine program). But I, too, update reviews when something goes wrong, sometimes six months after the initial review.

I’m curious about the news that Amazon is suing over 1,000 individuals for posting fake reviews. Personally, I know I haven’t done anything wrong or illegal, but immediately thought about your blog and wondered your take on the whole thing. I’ll be honest, I don’t fully understand all the ins and outs of the lawsuit. I do believe the service you provide is great and informative. Anyone who follows your guidelines shouldn’t have anything to fear at all, but I am interested in anything you might have to say about the lawsuit.

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.

What’s slightly ironic about all of this is that Amazon made a major push at the end of last year to clean up its reviews system. Until October of 2016, Amazon reviews were glutted with reviews from what was informally known as Amazon review clubs. The review clubs worked like this: You’d sign up, get a free or heavily discounted product, whether it was an egg-cracker or a queen-size mattress, and in exchange you’d post a review. You just had to include words to the effect of “I received this product at a discount/for free in exchange for my honest review” somewhere in your review. It was an ideal ecosystem for many. Consumers got items on the cheap. Sellers got five-star reviews (the “honest” part was largely lip service; Ooi of Fakespot says anyone who didn’t post five-star reviews would quickly find themselves iced out of the review club). The person running the review club could charge sellers for access to customers.

Being an ecommerce business owner requires an adaptable mindset and a can-do attitude. Especially when Amazon change the rulebook. Download this E-book to learn how to launch a product without incentivised reviews.

A review may not show on your item for one of two reasons. First, your item may not be eligible for review. Second, a review may not have been provided by a buyer. eBay prompts buyers to be the first to write products reviews.

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 The Wirecutter is too easy on the Vine program. I refuse to buy any product where the reviews are filled with “I received this product at a discount for my honest opinion.” How honest can people be with something free? Why can’t the product stand on its own without a bunch of handouts for people to review?

The amazing variety of products here means that I can afford to pick and choose on what makes great reviews on my end. The selection process is almost immediate, which is good as it means no waiting. Naturally, the products being featured here are expected to move fast and you need to regularly scrutinize your e-mail so as not to miss out on a nice product.

This is my favorite page on the web! I have it bookmarked. Thank you so much for all of this information. I have linked up your page on my site so other freebie lovers can check it out for themselves as well. I sent you an email too. Showing some love from http://enjoyfreebies.com ☺

3. Always tell the truth! Brands need truthful people to evaluate their products. If you lie, companies will not know if they need to make any improvements to their products. Also, you can get yourself removed from their program, and not get paid.

I am sorry I above written a long comment. I just would never want anyone to feel like I was made feel tonight just for asking a few polite questions as well as thanking in advance for answers. I also asked why you needed review votes. I have never asked anyone to do that as I didn’t know what it meant for one to want that. I just have being able to get products I like or wanted to try at a lower price. I was then made fun of by what they call their group cabal has arrived and told I didn’t need to concern myself with that as I would be purged from Amazon. The vine were the only honest reviewers. Well pardon me if I think you are getting free items or discounted items for reviews. So why are they better than others. How do we know they are honest. I reviewed my products long before I ever heard of a review club. I do so thank you for posting this and not being condemning but you are offering help and tips to those who are just trying to enjoy a little life. God bless.

Hey guys, just came here to see other offers and testing sites. I’ve signed up for Nike/Reebok etc but never got anything from them. I did however sign up about a year or two ago for New Balance and have tested probably about 5-6 pairs of shoes so far. Legit and a great program, although my girlfriend (and Mother) signed up last year and hasn’t gotten one pair yet. Good luck!

Dealgogogo is more like the combined pros of Snagshout and AmzReviewtrader. With strong connection with manufactories, the site is designed to benefit shopper/reviewer, focusing on shopper/reviewer experience and meanwhile trust reviewer will do the review as promised.

I’ve gotten things from Crowdtap and BzzAgent, and I only started about a month and a half – 2 months ago. I have received foundation from BzzAgent, an electric foot file from Crowdtap that retails for $60, and I’ve got more coming!

One site that seemingly never run out of deals. The website owner manages to strike an exclusive arrangement with just Amazon Sellers so it is particularly focused in that respect. On daily basis, the deals flow through your e-mail at 10am PST.

The Good Amazon’s voice-activated smart home speaker is undeniably futuristic, but it’s also practical and accessible. With a rapidly growing slate of features, integrations and use cases, it’s easy to get excited about the Echo’s potential.

No argument there! I only found it recently, when I was looking at stereo equipment, and trying to get things that were only the specific item, so I took to clicking on all the things trying to find a filter.

When the final list is complete, our reviewers reach out to manufacturers in search of no-strings-attached samples or products available on loan. Side note: Most manufactures are happy to provide samples – never mind the possibility of a bad review – because they believe in the quality of their products and look forward to the free press – good, or bad. In some instances, when a product sample is not available, we head to the store and shell out the cash to pick it up just like you would.

I tried signing up for a few of these, including the Amazon Review Trader. But when I try to review a product, I get a notice that I have not added my user profile. When I add it, I get a message saying “that profile URL is already in use”… I’ve tried a number of times, logged out of anything using my Amazon log on, restarted my computer, but it persists.. I tried contacting them to ask what could be causing this, but received an email saying they have too many requests for help so my email will not be answered.. Can a person only sign up for one of these programs? Could that be the problem?

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!

The BEST site I have used for taking surveys and being paid for the surveys is called: oneopinion.com. Again, you need 25000 credits to cash out into paypal. Its VERY EASY to get them. Ive already cashed out for OVER $500.00 in 2 1/2months. They DONT charge a fee, wen you cash out, your money IMMEDIATELY goes into your paypal account, and at times, they send you products to test and do a survey on. I JUST received an additional 30.00 for a dog treat survey, on top of the 2500 points for the original survey. So, oneopinion.com is a site I would DEFINITELY recommend

My trip into the upside-down world of Amazon reviews of cheapo electronics began because of a lost dongle. I was on an early morning flight with two chatty dudes behind me, bonding over living in Brooklyn and working in consulting. I badly wanted to drown out the conversation, but my wireless headphones were dead and I couldn’t find the 3.5 mm-to-Lightning dongle that’d let me plug my earbuds in. Luckily, I am a galaxy-brain genius, and came up with the brilliant solution to avoid this in the future: I would just buy a bunch of dongles.

“My Product Reviews” lets you know when a user leaves a negative review on an ASIN you are tracking. This allows you to proactively manage Amazon product reviews on items you sell. Then you can respond to these negative comments. This also lets you understand the issues a user faces regarding that ASIN. You can receive real-time alerts by email or text message, or you can opt to receive a daily digest email at a certain time of day.

So, based on my personal experience, and those of others who I read on forums and blogs, these few sites have the most opportunities when it comes to getting free Amazon products in exchange for reviews.

I think one big difference is that the objects must be reviewed within 30 days. Many negative reviews from regular users come weeks or months later, when problems start to show up, and they get to experience how the seller/manufacturer deals with faulty product. There is a good chance the first 30 days will provide a positive experience with most products, unless the whole product is of poor design, or does not live up to specifications. It would be great to have the Vine reviewers come back a year later and update their reviews.

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.

I would love to be a reviewer. I have been a member of Amazon since 2003. Love the fact that they have so much to offer. Everything from Lawn mower parts to computers, books, music etc. I have never been disappointed in an Amazon product.

I cannot get the HP z27 to work with my Mac Air or Mac mini. What gives? This thing comes with three cables, none of them, including the displayport to display port mini cable, work. Getting fed up and am about to return this heap.

I’ve just noticed something strange on amazon uk’s list of top reviewers. No 32 has never actually reviewed anything. I know the sorting on these things is supposed to be arcane but this is taking it a bit far.

We charge by the total number of SKUs or listings in your Amazon account. We will download the most recent listings in your Seller Central account up to the subscription limit. Please upgrade plans to ensure all of your listings are downloaded.

One other thing to look out for is reviews for the wrong product. A terrible thing that Amazon has done is allows sellers to list multiple unrelated products under one listing so you don’t even know what you are reading a review for. This function was supposed to be used to allow listing of variations of the exact same product like color, size, etc…, but now is being widely abused to list totally different items for the sake of reviews and price-based search results. For example, someone might sell a camera flash and a tripod and full studio kit all under one listing. When you read the reviews, you see a bunch of people raving about how great the product was and you assume it is for the flash you are looking at, but they are all really for the tripod and the one flash review was bad. I have reported this and Amazon simply does not care.

s mentioned above, I highly recommend you start reviewing items around the house/office you use often so companies can get an idea of how you write. Also, keep in mind that the type of products you review can dictate what companies contact you. If you only review headphones, you will likely get more requests to review headphones.

I didn’t think that BzzAgent had “points” either. Today I was taking a few short surveys (to update my profile). At the end of each one I was rewarded between 3-5 points. I quickly realised that BzzAgent has partnered with MyPoints so I joined that and the points I receive and redeem with BzzAgent go into there within 48 hours. MyPoints has their own thing going on but the points I get from BzzAgent have been going in there.

I’m glad you found it insightful! As for bad reviews, that can be tough for some reviewers to write. Companies will often write “we are a small family business” in their emails to you. Some of these are true, and I believe others are saying it trying to coax you into feeling awful if you write a bad review.

I also have one small favor to ask you, if everything has gone smoothly, I’d really appreciate it if you could take just a few seconds to leave feedback on your buying experience with us. It really affects our ability to sell and be successful and would be greatly appreciated.

Just thought in case there are some honest folks around this might be useful to know. As someone that broke into the Top 100 on the Amazon Review rankings I stopped reviewing on Amazon (unless I actually buy the item) as of that change of policy.

Also, each Amazon review site can limit how many discounts you can redeem each month. This ensures other customers can also find great deals and helps verify you are taking the time required to accurately test a product.

Product testing USA is legit I have tested one item for them but it seems like nobody gets chosen more than once but you have to sign up separately for each product and your chances of getting chosen probably are one in a million, and unfortunately each time you sign up for a product you have to do the crappy survey and yes if you select yes on anything you are swamped with a bunch of junk mail. So I always choose no to everything I have talked to them there at PTUSA and they said whether or not you choose yes or no does not help or lesson your chance to be chosen so if you really want to sign up for a product my suggestion if you don’t want a bunch of junk mail that is just answer no yo all of the survey questions.

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.

How much you get paid varies.  I’ve been paid anywhere from $3-$150. There was a time I tested a website in beta format for HBO (now called HBO-GO) and they paid me $100 for doing it!  Very easy money!

Second, the thing about Vine compared to other methods of receiving free products for review is that you are buffered from the manufacturer. They will not e-mail you and harass you in an attempt to get a better review. Things like coupon clubs and e-mail solicitations put more pressure on reviewers to give 5-star reviews and they will harangue you when you don’t. People also feel that they will stay in the database to get more freebies if they give positive reviews when the items aren’t coming from Vine. Giving low rankings to Vine items has no effect on the availability of items (which seems largely random), so you don’t have to worry about giving negative reviews and cutting the supply line. It actually frees you to be more honest and Vine reviewers can be some of the most savage in their product assessments when they are good reviewers, but they can be just as dopey as anyone else when they aren’t (Hint: “I was so happy to get this,” This was just what I need,” and “My kid/wife/dog loved this!” are all clues that the person hasn’t a clue how to assess a product but is just writing words because he/she has to write a review).

Look at the reviewer’s other reviews, SEE if they don’t blast stuff when it needs it. See if they don’t routinely try to point out problems with items. The public is often quick to say they’d rather see a “FREE” review that is fair and detailed, than an item with no reviews at all. It would be nice if people would SUPPORT helpful reviewers, and review more often themselves. A lot of us will answer questions that are emailed to us, or comments left with questions.

I have played it about three times now. Every time I play it gets better. I am amazed how awesome this game really is. I have only had it for 2 years. If you like to play open world games I recommend this game to you. The character customization is awesome two. I can never create the same character twice. Never have I seen a game like that before. There are millions of different combination’s it’s wonderful.

I know, I know….I should just type and not bother with any edits until I finish completely. But I’m a little OCD, and as soon as an error pops up I have to fix it. I’ve gone back and forth with editors, professors, up to and including my wife! But it’s just me, as my compulsion forces me to fix edits as I go. Grammarly has been very helpful, working along with me, together merrily Fixing edits as we go and keeping my blood pressure down!

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’m in the same boat , thankfully only a tiny amount of things I’ve ever tested have been bad or faulty. There are things I will not test , like supplements, pet foods/treats , makeup and certain beauty products. The reason I won’t test or buy these sorts of thing is mainly because there is too much room for uncertainty of the products and their safety.

As for audio quality, the Echo features dual downward-firing speakers that promise 360 degrees of “immersive sound.” Some of us at CNET, myself included, have noted that its bass tends to weaken or distort at maximum volume, but I haven’t had a problem with that personally, since I rarely find myself needing to dial things up much higher than 60 percent or so. To my ear, the Echo does a fine job of filling a room with sound, especially with crisp speech playback, something you’ll notice when you listen to a podcast or stream an audiobook.

Oddly enough, if Amazon would take on Facebook’s approach and way of thinking, this would eliminate sites like Fiverr. There’s a reason Facebook doesn’t offer a “Dislike” button, and perhaps Amazon should do the same. (http://techcrunch.com/2014/12/11/ask-zuck-anything/)

This is a product promotion network sending discounted and free product samples to shoppers / influencers. Membership is free. Available for reviewers in the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, France and Japan.

I’ve gotten things from Crowdtap and BzzAgent, and I only started about a month and a half – 2 months ago. I have received foundation from BzzAgent, an electric foot file from Crowdtap that retails for $60, and I’ve got more coming!

Most of these have deteriorated over the past year from offering high quality items for review into a dumping ground for sellers seeking to score more attention for their dubious supplements, cheap electronics accessories, Chinese-made “dollar store” type goods, and more recently adult “novelties.”

Took me all of 2 min to go through a half dozen products posted on the Amazon Shill/Club Review Sites and compared them to the Amazon listing. Surprise, most if not all the positive reviews were shills ‘discounts’ and nearly all the negative reviews were from actual users…some of the shill reviews gave 5 starts for products that didn’t even work! In one dash cam example I found, the video quality was so poor, it rendered it useless…and the reviewer still gave it 5 stars!

4. How to get a review. Click on each reviewer to get details on the person. Note that this step may require some sleuthing skills. In some cases the reviewer will share their contact information, in other cases they will share their name and business, and in some cases they reveal squat. I have found about 50 percent of the time I can find a way to contact the person in under a minute—often via e-mail, other times via a Facebook page or Twitter.

Not necessarily. Just becouse a site asks for your information, doesn’t make them legit or a scam. That said, Product Report Card is more of a survey and reward site than a product testing company. You can earn a little side money taking surveys and completing offers. It’s a legitimate site, but as always, you have to be realistic. It won’t replace your day job. Just a fun way to earn a few dollars in your free time.

I’m struggling with an ethical decision. I’m not sure if it’s something you’ve ever encountered. I received a discounted product in a package with multiple paid orders. I remember seeing the discounted product, but when I went to test it, I couldn’t find it anywhere. I have looked and looked for weeks to see if it slipped behind something or what. The only thing I can figure is it accidentally was thrown away with the packaging. So what should I do? I feel bad that I haven’t written a review. I could say it arrived promptly and possibly give some general information about it, but I don’t feel comfortable writing a fake review nor do I feel right in writing no review since I did receive the product. Any advice?

I’m a top 500 reviewer on Amazon UK, and a Vine Voice on Amazon US (though I’ve never gotten anything from Vine, because I don’t live in the US), and I like posting reviews. Some are reviews I’ve also posted on my website, and some are for items I’ve gotten for free from manufacturers. But all are honest, and are not influenced by the fact the products are free. I’m a freelance journalist, and review hardware and software as part of my job, so I’m well aware of the ethical questions involved in reviewing. Whenever I review something sent to me by a vendor, I note it in the review.

“how can i review products on amazon -amazon product review club”

Typically reviewers are invited to conduct a review by a journal or books editor. Editors usually select researchers that are experts in the same subject area as the paper. However, if you think you would be a good reviewer for a specific journal you can always contact one of the journal’s editors.

I use most of these sights I’ve been a member with bzzagent the longest about 4 years almost and have NEVER EVER Recieved a payment of gift card or payment of any kind..never heard of it either….loreal testing panel is bogus been there 4 years never got a thing did every survey ever…smiley 360 I’ve gotten s tons of stuff crowdtap and bzzagent tons of stuff.. Love it! Also if u like product reviewing go ok Facebook and look for review groups I used to be big in it and used to get literally 20 packages A day from Amazon for months without spending a dime! I have a mini washing machine coming this week for free got my son a scooter for Christmas ..got 100 pair of blue tooth headphones for my daughter I’ve gotten some Amazin stuff but most of that was pitching on my own

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.

The BEST site I have used for taking surveys and being paid for the surveys is called: oneopinion.com. Again, you need 25000 credits to cash out into paypal. Its VERY EASY to get them. Ive already cashed out for OVER $500.00 in 2 1/2months. They DONT charge a fee, wen you cash out, your money IMMEDIATELY goes into your paypal account, and at times, they send you products to test and do a survey on. I JUST received an additional 30.00 for a dog treat survey, on top of the 2500 points for the original survey. So, oneopinion.com is a site I would DEFINITELY recommend

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.

(4) Now, you should finally be at the screen to register/create and EA account. Clicking “submit” never worked for us, so we clicked on the –> to continue. This is when I nearly lost it, after all this work we find out that “The registration key used to instal this game cannot be validated.” If you click on help with registration it just takes you to a page for password recovery. 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.

“We do not incentivize positive star ratings, attempt to influence the content of reviews, or even require a review to be written,” explains Chee Chew, VP, Customer Experience at Amazon in an announcement about how Vine controls for bias. “And we limit the total number of Vine reviews that we display for each product,” he adds.

The Result?  Online reviewers, journalists, bloggers, and podcasters meet product promoters, marketers, public and publicity pros, to help each other find new products and review them online.  Hopefully this now includes you, too!

But unlike Siri, which is still secondary to touch as a means of interfacing with iOS devices, Alexa is essentially all the Echo has. It was critical for Amazon to get her right — thankfully, she delivers (and yes, calling Alexa “she” feels more correct than calling Alexa “it,” a testament to how personable she is).

“[They] provide these “Verified Reviews” only if the reviewers obtain the product for free, in addition to receiving payment for the “review.” In at least one instance, the seller of a “Verified Review” was willing to receive an empty envelope …simply to create a shipping record to .. avoid detection by Amazon.”

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!

This is a product promotion network sending discounted and free product samples to shoppers / influencers. Membership is free. Available for reviewers in the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, France and Japan.

On a regular basis I received from the Seller Home Town message announcing that the pick-up for return and refund will be organised soon (in the next 24 hours, then in the next 48 hours, then in the next 72 hours).

Ask the right questions. To do this, you need to know the type of answers you want before you start asking for them. What is your target audience interested in? What are their biggest concerns when making a purchase? What are pain points in your industry? Aligning with these questions will help you get meaningful and relevant testimonials.

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.

“review items on amazon for money _amazon product review sugar free gummy bears”

They offer discounts for a variety of products, although, health and beauty tend to be the most common category. The offerings largely depend on their merchant partnerships so the deals are always changing.

Some of these Amazon reviewers make a living doing this – it’s serious business, and some may do as many as 100 reviews a month. Be prepared to offer your product for free in exchange for a review – depending on your product, this could be a pricey expenditure, so you’ll have to decide if this is a strategy you can afford. 

The quick answer is that every analysis 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.

Knowing that, you can expect that background checks are minimal or (most likely) completely non-existent. BUT, if any manufacturer sends out a bunch of product and gets an abysmal response of people writing reviews, you can expect that the next time that manufacturer will likely do some more checks first.

While the company is seeking damages and an injunction against the fake reviewers, it’s unclear if Amazon will actually see this through to the end—or if it’s just a salvo to suggest that the reviewers to knock it off. Notably, the company did not name the Amazon sellers who hired them in the first place. Under the company’s legal arguments, those sellers would be liable, too.

Stay away from UberZon Club. Signed up and have not snagged any type of deal from them. Plus if you don’t have Amazon Prime, then the so called discount price is not much of a discount when shipping & tax is added. Was a member for over a year and have not purchased one item. Plus, I have noticed that a lot of reviews on Amazon now are from people who received free products or products for a discount. The majority give great reviews (4 or 5 stars) rarely do I see a negative review for a product that was free or offered for a discount. Wonder why that it, as a buyer it makes me skeptical about purchasing a product that practically everyone else received for free or a discounted price, especially if I have to pay full price along with shipping & taxes. Usually don’t purchase these products because I don’t trust the reviews. Have noticed a lot of these types of reviews lately. Don’t really know if Amazon is okay with this or not, but I think it is something that needs to be looked at.

So I signed up for a few of these, the buzz one specifically and I did a bunch of surveys but it doesn’t really mention anything about when I would receive a protect to review. When does that happen? What about receiving products and doing reviews on YouTube or my blog? I saw a lady on youtube who was getting childrens board games and reviewing them! Do you know anything about that? Thanks!

To set up your alerts, use the Options tab in your sidebar. First, choose whether or not to receive alerts for negative product reviews, and then tell FeedbackFive when and how to receive your alerts – individually or as a daily digest, and via text, email or both.

In addition, starting May 6, product reviews will be available for all eligible listings. eBay sellers who previously opted out of product reviews on My eBay will be opted back into product reviews. If you opted out and want to opt in to take advantage of the benefits of product reviews before May 6, you can do so on My eBay.

The Customer Product Reviews screen shows you a list of reviews for that item. The list includes the date of the review, the reviewer name (keep in mind this name can be different from the name the buyer uses to purchase items), the rating, title of the review and the text of the review. The screen also shows you whether or not the review is associated with a verified Amazon purchase.

Think about that. How can you give an honest review to a product that is filling a need that you don’t have. If you don’t need a microwave, you’ll be less likely to find a flaw with one given to you for free. “Works like a microwave, 5 STARS!”

4. Once on the Seller’s details page, look to the right side for blue outlined box and a link near the bottom of it in a paragraph starting with “For questions regarding products”. Click it (you will be asked to log in.) See screenshot:

Furthermore, I hope you are truly loving our products and are happy with your purchase. As a small seller on Amazon, we are largely dependent on product reviews from wonderful customers such as yourself.

I have only started reviewing product over the past 6 mths. About 70% of the product promo codes I enter fail. It happens when the sellers directly email me a code & also when I attempt to redeem an item from AMZThe sellers tell me that they haven’t come across this issue with other reviewers. They send me another promo code and some times it works, and other times it doesn’t. One vendor sent me 4 codes before I was finally able to successfully redeem it. This happens even if I attempt to redeem the code same day as received. And they are products I have never purchased either myself or through a different promo code.

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!

Obtaining Amazon Customer Reviews is no longer a part of ADG whatsoever. Further, the DealCoin system has been removed entirely, so you are not limited to the Deals you can redeem based on DealCoins. You are free to take advantage of as many Deals as you’d like without restriction.

Megan, nice tips. couldn’t agree more that customer reviews and testimonials are definitely on the top when it comes to helping businesses to sell more. expanding more on your #9 need for name and picture for testimonials, you might be interested to see my recent post on why it is important – http://customertestimonials.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/best-practices-fake-it-till-you-make-it-does-not-apply-here

Hi there, Wondering if you have any advice on getting products shipped to Mexico. Mexico do not allow cosmetic products through the post from USA or Canada, I believe. The postal system is quite unreliable anyway. Any thoughts?

The world has changed since Amazon introduced its first smart speaker in 2014. Back then, the Echo was something of an oddity — a bookshelf speaker made interactive and, remarkably, truly useful through Amazon’s voice-activated Alexa virtual assistant. Since then, the company has expanded its lineup of smart speakers to include a variety of specialties, while continuing to build out Alexa’s arsenal of skills and integrations with third-party apps and smart home gadgets. And the world has caught up, too, pitting Amazon against an increasingly competitive market full of noteworthy rivals including Google, Sonos, and, soon, Apple.

I get quite a few products from MySurvey Panel and pay is very well.  I get stuff like foods, beauty products, and household items.  Also I receive cell phones to use for a couple of weeks every few months to record different task on it for them.  Also offers to join high paying focus groups that pays $100+. 💰 Pays by Cash, PayPal, Amazon Gift Cards, and Other Gift Cards

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.

—— “I wanted to reply to this and let you know that what you’re asking as far as the request that I “click the customer reviews….kindly click the yes for us…” that is expressly forbidden by Amazon’s rules and can get me banned from further reviewing any products and get your company sued. Amazon is really cracking down on this and it’s a huge deal. Also, for me personally, this goes against what I feel is ethically is right and wrong. After I’ve used and have an opinion on your product I might be able to say that another review helped me, but I cannot do so before I’ve ever tried it.

Thank you for a positive article on sites for reviewing. I am a reviewer, fairly new. I am an Amazon prime member. I noticed you made a remark somewhere in all the responses above about Amazon community board for help. Please don’t refer people there. I will explain this in detail :

The problem I have with Amazon and its reviews is this, I review for Amazon where I obtain items I would normally purchase but at a reduced price for my honest opinion. And my reviews are very honest, I have no issue in telling a company that their bvlah blah product is crap and this is why,,,

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.

After the first signing up, you will be rewarded with a DealCoin, which can be used to exchange for the product of corresponding value. As you embark on your review job, you’ll continue to be rewarded with a DealCoin with every completed assignment, i.e. those individual assignments have to be verified by the Amazing Deals Group. And then you go for another review.

Another great sites where you get paid for writing reviews. Epinions is a shopping.com company where members can earn money by writing useful reviews about different products. there is no limit to how many reviews you can write. The more reviews you write, the more money you make. The first 10 reviews that you write, earn you $10, 20 to 30 reviews earn you $20, writing 30-39 reviews earn you $30, and so on. Every time you write a review you receive what are called “Eroyalties credits”, which are redeemable in US dollars. When you accumulated $10 in your account, you can request to be paid, which will be paid to you by check.

“free products for amazon reviews +amazon product review banana slicer”

While Vine members used to receive a monthly newsletter featuring books and other products they chose from to review — with products valued at anywhere from a few dollars to close to $1,000 — they now have access to a rolling list of items they can order at any time. According to NPR, Vine members cannot sell or give items received through the program away and Amazon can ask for the items back — although they don’t appear to do that.

I use most of these sights I’ve been a member with bzzagent the longest about 4 years almost and have NEVER EVER Recieved a payment of gift card or payment of any kind..never heard of it either….loreal testing panel is bogus been there 4 years never got a thing did every survey ever…smiley 360 I’ve gotten s tons of stuff crowdtap and bzzagent tons of stuff.. Love it! Also if u like product reviewing go ok Facebook and look for review groups I used to be big in it and used to get literally 20 packages A day from Amazon for months without spending a dime! I have a mini washing machine coming this week for free got my son a scooter for Christmas ..got 100 pair of blue tooth headphones for my daughter I’ve gotten some Amazin stuff but most of that was pitching on my own

Yup, that sounds like Amazon! I have had two experiences with them that blew my mind and opened my eyes to how they treat customers (and I’m a customer since 1996 who has spent tens of thousands of dollars with them).

Hey I’m Lou! I’m a mom of 2 and full time professional mom blogger in Metro Atlanta, Georgia. I enjoy learning and reviewing the latest products and being a brand influencer. I also enjoy traveling (especially to beaches), shopping, visiting different restaurants, playing in makeup, and going on adventures with my family.

The compensated-review process is simple: Businesses paid to create dummy accounts purchase products from Amazon and write four- and five-star reviews. Buying the product makes it tougher for Amazon to police the reviews, because the reviews are in fact based on verified purchases. The dummy accounts buy and review all sorts of things, and some of the more savvy pay-for-review sites even have their faux reviewers pepper in a few negative reviews of products made and sold by brands that aren’t clients to create a sense of “authenticity.” In fact, for extra cash, a company can pay one of these firms to write negative reviews of a competitor’s product. Wirecutter contributor Brent Butterworth has written about this practice as well.

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….

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.

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.

By your argument we should probably ban wealthier people from writing reviews, because $100 does not hold the same value for me as it does for someone well above (or below) my standard of living. Just because two people pay the same dollar amount does not mean they incur the same cost.

You can find many items as low as 10 cents. Sometimes, you can even buy something for a penny before shipping. While other review sites have a books category, Jump Send also seems to be one of the few that usually has books available at discounted prices and several free downloadable PDFs.

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.

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.

The comments are interesting but most are incorrect if they believe that all discounted reviews are shill. I just received a request from an Amazon partner to do discounted item (for my honest revie). I though,t well if they think they are buying stars from me they are very wrong. I have no incentive to give bad or good reviews artificially. I don’t get anything extra. So people that paint a negative brush are quite wrong. It matters more to me to be honest because I buy items there at full price and don’t want to be fooled. Think about this too. Send it back. It’s easy as that. It’s a pain, but the situation isn’t all fake.. Common sense tells you that Amazon nosedive.if this was the case.

Getting something for free colors your perspective. If you pay for something at full price you are much more emotionally involved and thus more able to review it appropriately for another who’ll be paying full price. If you still think it’s bad – even free – I imagine many people might feel like they shouldn’t bad mouth the person giving them something for nothing – which may also influence the review.

New offers are emailed directly to your inbox every day and you can also browse the savings on their website. Other websites might offer more products on a daily basis, but, ProductTesting.co seems to offer quality items from a variety of product categories.

If you think all or most Vine reviews are worthless, don’t read them. They all have big green banners on them, clearly marking them as Vine reviews. And no one should be buying products after looking only at the star count. That is particularly true of books. There are so many books with author associated reviews it’s not funny.

They offer discounts for a variety of products, although, health and beauty tend to be the most common category. The offerings largely depend on their merchant partnerships so the deals are always changing.

Hey Natasha! On this post, I provided a list of companies you can sign up with free to start product testing and also earning money from it. Just click the links, and then sign up. Surveys will be sent to your email box.

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.

I have been using promo codes to give out a good amount of product at the launch to drive of sales, and then following up with these emails that you mentioned, but today I received a review from someone and they added the ***I received this product at a discount in exchange for a review*** at the end of the review.

It is not unethical, just stick to reviewing what you do know about the product. Everyone has limited experience with products to some degree, just stick to your experience and the facts. You don’t have to mention you lost it.

You’re welcome! Yes, Toluna is legitimate. The reason for all the questions they need to know your demographic to see if you are a right fit for surveys and product testing. Your information is never sold.

Thanks for your story. It’s important to expose this behavior. Know that people on Fiverr will up/down vote dozens of reviews for $5: https://www.fiverr.com/search/gigs?utf8=%E2%9C%93&search_in=everywhere&source=top-bar&query=amazon+vote&page=1&layout=auto I think some of these down votes are the bots sent out by people on Fiverr. I also think it may be a mix of top reviewers and competitors paying them to do so. Petty? Yes. The new game? Likely.

Oddly enough, if Amazon would take on Facebook’s approach and way of thinking, this would eliminate sites like Fiverr. There’s a reason Facebook doesn’t offer a “Dislike” button, and perhaps Amazon should do the same. (http://techcrunch.com/2014/12/11/ask-zuck-anything/)

Perhaps I’m being skeptical so I copied the information (I left out seller information and link). Perhaps it’s just a language barrier and they were telling me 4 other 5 stars are the best, not that they expect 4 or 5 stars.

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.

Well, there are cases when competitors are actually paying to peoples to leave negative feedback on other sellers which is definitely against the Amazon’s review policy. You can avoid negative reviews by tracking with Amazon negative reviews tracker tool such as AMZ Insight in order to instantly know whenever there’s a negative review arise on your listing.

AMZ Review Trader is different in the fact that instead of being able to review one product at a time, you can review up to 20. The one downside with this review site is that sellers will approve your Amazon Profile before they actually give you a promotion code.

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.

— “every free thing I have asked to review has charged me on amazon when I put in the code” Ok, that isn’t supposed to happen. I have only had less than 10 “free” coupons end up not being free (see Facebook post here for help with this).

Reviews can also help you better understand your products. You can spend hours using a product, but chances are customers will notice things you never would. That means your customers can give you great feedback, ideas for improvements, or even incredible marketing ideas!

“Before I begin my review on this product, let me set the record straight on something. NewEgg DOES NOT PAY their Eggxpert Reviewers ANY MONEY for a review (GOOD OR BAD – ON ANY PRODUCT)!!! When they 1st asked me to become a reviewer, they told me that I could post ANY TYPE of review that I wanted to, either GOOD OR BAD! The only thing that they asked me to do was to be honest in my review, which I try to be. Now that this is finished, let’s start…”

I just wanted to ask you a question about the l oreal product testing. Do you need to pay taxes on the gifts or products they send you? I recently moved to the US and I have no idea how the system works.

I will add, in my experience with Grammarly, and why I advocate it and it stood out. It catches many words that aren’t misspelled, but are in the wrong context. For example, a couple lines above I accidentally typed “doesn’t out much,” where in haste I typed out instead of “put.” I would proofread it when I finish (my father taught me to proofread by reading each word from the bottom up, right to left as it makes you slow down and pay closer attention…tedious but handy) but before I got a sentence away Grammarly identified it and pointed it out to me, and a quick mouse click later it’s fixed. Which can shortens my prof dreading later.

I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.

I cannot get the HP z27 to work with my Mac Air or Mac mini. What gives? This thing comes with three cables, none of them, including the displayport to display port mini cable, Getting fed up and am about to return this heap.

Lol. I got my Vine membership taken away for writing an honest review. I agree 100 percent. And just tried to review an item I purchased last week and amazon rejected it at 1 star, and truthful. I am thinking of returning, try more stars, and lie and I bet my new review will be accepted.

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 ;).

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 haven’t seen anything forbidding gift cards being sent to a reviewer. Could you post a link to the page that states that? As for refunds, forbidden or not, I wouldn’t recommend anyone get into that mess. Be sure to get the product up front, or at least a 100% off coupon code to purchase it via Amazon Checkout for $0.00. Do NOT buy a product with the expectations that they will refund you after a review is written. It’s payment for review (a gray area, or flat out forbidden), and open for being taken advantage of by the person requesting the review.

3) No hardcore aspects. The gameplay offers little challenge and is, quite literally, impossible to lose. If you die in any stage, you simply respawn. The acception is the tribal and city stages. I’m not sure what happens if you lose your bases in those stages but the enemy AI is very basic and very rarely poses a threat. Each stage also lacks depth of gameplay to the various roles that you can play.

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:

BuView is more of a focus group but it is another way to test products that are pending release or will be soon. Like other paid survey sites, product offers are based on your profile and interests and the vendor’s target audience.

I have the same question that others here do. I looked at the page of Amazon reviewers, and while they all sound like wonderful people, there is no contact information. It sounds like ” Don’t call us, we’ll call you.”

I Love to Review (UK) is the sister site to the original USA version. I feel they are the most professional and well-run review site I have ever worked with. They even have an automated review checker so you don’t have to post them to your ILTR account! Only for reviewers in the UK.

This is another exclusive review program that requires an invite in order to sign up. Click through and use the application form we found to apply for your invitation. Since FAQs are closed to members, info is limited at this time. (Likely) available for reviewers in USA.

In general, shoppers have begun to distrust these reviews because they believe them to be biased. That’s not just a “feeling,” as it turns out – a recent study of over 7 million reviews indicated that the average rating for products with incentivized reviews was higher than non-incentivized ones. (That is, a 4.74 average rating versus a 4.36 average rating, out of 5 stars).

very interesting article. I have a quick question. I have sold some of my products on Amazon. I have done small tweaks to the design (which does not change the performance of the product). Because I have a new code with Amazon, I have lost all the reviews of my old products. Is there any way that review can be transferred?

Posted a bad review once and the company offered me 20% back, but only if I removed the review, no mention of fixing the issue lol. I contacted Amazon to say they had tried to bribe me and Amazon didnt want to know. A few days after their 20% offer they phoned me at home, I hadnt given them my number and saw no reason for them to have it, guy was really creepy and kept asking what I did want for removing the review, at the end he got racist and hung up. I sent a recording of the phonecall to Amazon and once again, they didnt want to know.

Woops, I just saw that you did mention global test market. How about this one though: weartest.newbalance.com. I just signed up with them. Not sure if they pay though. But I’ll let you know when I find out.

I recently started reviewing products on the Amazon Canada site and have been asked to write a few reviews and I really enjoy it. Is there a list of sellers or contacts that can be found to offer to review products? Or somewhere I can list my interests, devices etc for sellers to contact me?

The Chinese crap on Amazon is out of control. Not only the non-UL listed electronics, but the sweat-shop clothing that no ethical store would ever import (easily recognized by the measurements being in centimeters and the fractured explanations of how size XXL equals an American/European size S).

Hi Lou! I LOVE what you’re doing!!! I am so interested in becoming a product tester, with the hopes of earning money so I can help support my family. Which would you recommend I start with? The list is pretty overwhelming, so I appreciate any and all suggestions.

Just in case anyone needs to fill out a 1099 forms, I found a blank forms in this site PDFfiller. This site also has some tutorials on how to fill it out and a tons of fillable tax forms that you might find useful. Here is a blank 1099-MISC that I was able to fill out http://goo.gl/cfrBuF.

This is a product promotion network sending discounted and free product samples to shoppers / influencers. Membership is free. Available for reviewers in the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, France and Japan.

“how to sign up to review products on amazon -amazon product review facebook”

I’ve been contacted by sellers offering free and discounted products for review….I always put a disclaimer at the end of each review and as I’ve seen many others accepting products to review I didn’t know it wasn’t allowed…is this correct?? I actually enjoy writing reviews…

Notice how all the reviews appeared within days of one another. They also reference the same key thing: the light on the cable. In fact, two of the three use the exact phrase “how bright the lights on the cable are.” That’s a good indication that something is sketchy. And although we don’t know what product the lawsuit’s example refers to, if the product’s manufacturer was brand-new and had a few hundred of these kinds of reviews within a few days, chances are good that the company paid for them in some way.

As a supplier of an item I want reviewed, I am looking over your profile to see if you are going to be a good candidate for this product. I’m also going to read your reviews (likely skim them) to judge them on length, content, constructive criticism, and tone of voice. I want a reviewer that is not only going to give me an honest review, but one that will help other potential buyers A) make an informed buying decision based on a peer review, and more importantly B) want to buy the product.

I have been a NewEgg Eggxpert for about 3 to 4 years and have posted QUITE A FEW BAD REVIEWS about both Products AND Services over the years. I have NEVER GOTTEN “DINGED” by ANY Company and/or Service for a “BAD” Review. As a matter of fact I did a BAD Review on a Western Digital Portable HD once and I got a Reply Message (ON the NewEgg Review Site itself – surprised the heck out of me) praising my honesty and truthfulness. The person who replied even said that he wished MORE REVIEWERS were as honest in their reviews as I was. He also stated that ALL the problems/issues that I had listed with the product itself would be tested and/or fixed or modified ASAP.

Hey there! I contacted someone in charge of ProductTestingUSA and found out it is not a scam, and indeed provide product testing. You will have to do other offers on their site, however if you fit the demographic they are looking for you will be able to test a product from them.

If you like customized cases for your smartphone and other technology devices but don’t want to pay top dollar, you will like GMYLE. By signing up for their Laboratory Programme, you can sample upcoming and existing products for free. They have some neat designs that include marble, wood, bamboo, galaxy patterns. These products can definitely turn some eyes.

If you are selling a book, then perhaps even insert a link (or short description) on How To write a (book)review. If you have just one or two reviews, then insert the topic as a quote and just ask your customers if they agree.

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.

Unroll.Me might be one of the easiest ways to remove temptation from your email inbox. The tool collects all of those advertising emails sent to you from retailers – and anyone else who uses a bulk emailing list – and puts them into a daily “rollup” email you can peruse whenever it’s convenient. That way, you won’t get spammed all day, and you can still catch emails that matter to you.

Love your help. First day and already receiving first item to test. Check out freakyfreddies.com its not a survey site but has links to free samples. Some are legit and have got several items from there. It’s worth a try!

“amazon product review program _how to receive free products to review on amazon”

VIP Amazon Review Club by Premier Deals Club offers many products that usually sell for $20 to $50 for only $3 to $5. You won’t get many free deals which can be a downside. When you do receive a discounted product, you only have three days to post a review. This is a quick deadline relatively speaking when compared to other Amazon review sites.

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 ;).

In fact, at the time we did our research sweep, the Rxvoit headphones had a five-star rating and a few hundred reviews posted within a week or two. This, for a company that is very new (as in, it has only one product—these headphones) and one we had never heard of. That’s a red flag.

“Also, they asked me to check some of the existing reviews, and to click that one helped me.” DON’T DO THIS. This A) goes against the ethics of the Reviewing community, B) is expressly forbidden by Amazon and something Amazon is cracking down on and kicking Reviewers/Seller out for, and C) is something we all need to stamp out by writing back to Sellers and saying ‘no’—educate them that this practice of fake up-votes is unethical and against policy.

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.

Experienced sellers understand the importance of tracking product reviews. Studies have shown that buyers pay close attention to what other people have to say about the quality of an item. Additionally, Amazon uses product reviews in its algorithm for determining which items appear first in search results.

One of the biggest problems with the ” average discount /free reviewer ” is they don’t really try the product out and they don’t go into any detail about the good and bad of the product…. it’s just bla and just a review to get their rank up . This sorta thing drives me NUTS! I often compare my review to others and it makes me want to hit my head on the wall sometimes. I try to be as detailed and even demo on video most of the time . This is the reason I say pics and video are a good ( most of the time indicator of a valid review.

Yes. Click on the report link in the review and choose the appropriate reason why you believe the review should be removed. eBay will review all requests and make a decision. A negative review, by itself, is not removable.

Sounds about right (par for the course). Get an listed telephone number and then use the old one solely as an Amazon dedicated line, if the additional expense isn’t prohibitive. Also, naturally, now the vendor will start retaliating by “negging” your other reviews (happens all the time).

Another problem with Amazon’s review system is that they often link together similar yet different products, so that multiple versions of a product show all the same reviews. For instance, blu-ray and DVD editions of a movie are often linked together, so you’ll see reviews for the blu-ray and reviews for the DVD lumped together in the same list. There was once a computer model that had different versions with notable differences (one with an Intel processor, and one with an AMD processor, for instance), and reviews for both models were lumped together in the same list. People were commenting on the reviews saying “This PC doesn’t have an AMD processor, it has an Intel processor, you reviewed the wrong product!” – When in fact it was Amazon’s review grouping, rather than the reviewer’s mistake.

I noticed you recently reviewed [other company’s product]. I’m a seller in a similar category and have just brought to market a set of [their product] in bright and fun colors that I would love to offer you for free in return for a totally honest review.

Follow-up is key. Every time you reach out to a reviewer, add the date to your excel spreadsheet so you can keep track of when you sent your letter, who says yes, who says no, and who never replies. Follow up two weeks after your initial request with a friendly and simple message asking if they have had a chance to read through your request and that you look forward to hearing back.

Awesome. Thank you so much for that link. I’ve been searching everywhere trying to get a clear answer for who can leave a review. We just started selling our own products on Amazon and have our own site and are on other platforms, and wanted to use that customer base to leave reviews on Amazon to be found there. It’s clearly spelled out at that link that that is okay and won’t be punished. Thanks again!

If you want to spot a good review then look for pics and videos, look for a review that has about 100 + words and includes the good with the bad ( rarely does a product lack a downside or possible improvement ) check to see them showing what the product does . I’ve seen so many reviews like ” this ball is great , it’s lots of fun ” that doesn’t tell the consumer anything. .. just a bland blanket statement, those are the most bogus and easy to spot . So ultimately, there are some really honest and unbiased reviews from people that are outside of the vine program ( my dream ) but aren’t being paid off to write 4 and 5 star reviews. The groups I belong to are VERY strict about keeping with Amazon’s TOU when it comes to doing reviews, if you get into doing this then make sure you know and follow the TOU regardless of what a seller or group admin asks of you .

I’ve stopped accepting anything free from companies, with the exception of books I get from NetGalley. I’ve had too many products that are just crappy, and I get way too many emails about products for review, mostly, these days, from Chinese companies.

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. 

Do you know if the email that you put on your public profile needs to match the Amazon-registered email? I would really love to put an email to be contacted on but would like to use a disposable one for when it eventually gets picked up by spam bots.

Since I began receiving free products I have kept a spreadsheet of all of the items that I have received. Since 26th June I have received 128 products with a combined value of £2,392.00 ($3,588.00). I find myself reviewing lots of similar products, most common items are Bluetooth Speakers, Bluetooth earphones & Headphones, Power Banks, Phone & Tablet cases & IP Camera’s, but I also received kitchen utensils, lighting, tablets and computer peripherals. As a consequence I now only accept approx 20% of the items that I am offered, you can get fed up with reviewing Bluetooth earphones!

Amazon Sellers pay these companies to reach out to their email list asking their subscribers if they would like to receive free or deeply discounted product to test. When you show interest in a particular product being offered, that company either:

One other thing to look out for is reviews for the wrong product. A terrible thing that Amazon has done is allows sellers to list multiple unrelated products under one listing so you don’t even know what you are reading a review for. This function was supposed to be used to allow listing of variations of the exact same product like color, size, etc…, but now is being widely abused to list totally different for the sake of reviews and price-based search results. For example, someone might sell a camera flash and a tripod and full studio kit all under one listing. When you read the reviews, you see a bunch of people raving about how great the product was and you assume it is for the flash you are looking at, but they are all really for the tripod and the one flash review was bad. I have reported this and Amazon simply does not care.

This is not at all how Amazon reviews work as of 10/2016 according to GiveAwayService.com I was very disappointed to read this after 2 hours of researching and beginning the process. See article below: https://www.giveawayservice.com/blog/update-on-amazon-customer-reviews

If you are looking for free travel and outdoor gear to review, this is the program for you! Their product offering is limited, but looks like they may be a new and growing company. Available for reviewers in USA.

Another problem with Amazon’s review system is that they often link together similar yet different products, so that multiple versions of a product show all the same reviews. For instance, blu-ray and DVD editions of a movie are often linked together, so you’ll see reviews for the blu-ray and reviews for the DVD lumped together in the same list.

Once you get the approval to test, the company will ask for your address to send you the product to test for a week or two.  Then, they’ll follow up with you with an email asking questions about the product you’ve tested.  When you’re done, you get paid!  WOO HOO!

At the Echo’s launch, Alexa’s native capabilities included reading off weather forecasts, setting timers and alarms, and managing your to-do list and shopping list (and, of course, crossing items off of that shopping list by making purchases on Amazon whenever you ask her to). One trick that I use almost every morning while I’m brushing my teeth is to ask her for the news. In response, she’ll offer a curated list of the day’s headlines and news blurbs from popular sources such as NPR, CNN, BBC News and Fox Sports Radio. You pick which sources you want to hear from and which categories you want to hear about in the Alexa app.

I got an invite a while back when it was new, but didn’t know that I could get free stuff to review. Any ideas on how to re-activate said invite? I don’t seem to have the email, although I could dig deeper.

You won’t find a selection of products by going to their site, but rather a landing page that’s only used for registering a new account. They are a bit more strict in their process for giving out discounts.

Also, each Amazon review site can limit how many discounts you can redeem each month. This ensures other customers can also find great deals and helps verify you are taking the time required to accurately test a product.

I do my best to only request items that I would buy, and hold items to a standard that corresponds to its price. On top of that I’m a horribly picky person and prone to buyer’s remorse. However I’m still not sure I’m giving an item a fair shake. The best I can do, really, is to give far more extensive and thorough reviews than I would for some random item I’ve bought.

Once your Amazon Profile has been updated and you are ready to start getting free products to review, be sure to check out my growing list of Amazon Review Sites for Free Products. Signing up for even just some of these will ensure you are busy with more review request emails than you ever though possible.

The product range is impressive and registration is easy. But unlike some other review sites, this one does not indicate upfront the kind of discounts you are entitled to. It will be mailed to you upon successful request approval.

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.

As someone who consults with a lot of business owners I know how difficult it is to get a business up and running. Everything out there has already been invented. If you create a BETTER product of something out there then how is anyone supposed to find it on Amazon without any sales history?

Do you know if the email that you put on your public profile needs to match the Amazon-registered email? I would really love to put an email to be contacted on but would like to use a disposable one for when it eventually gets picked up by spam bots.

try the new site 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
