“amazon product review writer how to get free products in exchange for amazon reviews”

I mentioned that an Amazon rep emailed me in response to an issue and told me in the course of our correspondence of the vine club; yet I was told repeatedly that just wasn’t so or possible. How do these people know who has contacted me? They don’t. I actually have the emails saved. Amazon has always had the best customer service or it has been my experience. I never would have believed that they allowed such to go on when they give this link to get help on products etc. Not one conversation I found was about about product. The conversations taking place were about club reviewers and how they would be purged and done away with. Matter of fact, I was told it was coming for me and I would no longer be an Amazon reviewer when Amazon was done with me.

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.

At one point, you had to know someone who was in the game in order to get scheme of things. Groups were minimally exposed. Now, because of walk through websites such as this, Amazon has cracked down onow their review policies and have made it nearly impossible to do the correct way, without being sneaky. Thus, most groups have changed and the amount of products hasuch plummeted. Thanks to websites like yours. So, on behalf of seasoned reviewers and original reviewers, thanks for ruining our hobby!

Hi, I’m a reviewer on amazon as well and I just wanted to offer some advice to help some newer reviewer. If you do video demos of the product that you buy or receive for reviews and include pictures, sellers would be more incline to select you or reach out to you to review their product. Also breaking up your review in paragraphs or doing a pros and cons is great, and what I do is do a summery paragraph at the end and include in that other possible uses in such.

There is nothing wrong with writing constructive negative reviews. If you mean by “unsavory” in that previous reviews are defamatory or just go way overboard on the negativity, then yes, this could hurt you, should any manufacturer find them (which is unlikely for most asking for a review. See below.)

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

We’re a little different from other product review sites in that each one of our product groupings are displayed in an easy-to-follow format. While we may have researched dozens of products in a category, we’ll only show you the best picks because who has time to wade through hundreds of products in an industry? Our reviews are the perfect combination of product comparison, expert analysis and industry data so you can find the right product for you.

“I have been using Amazon feedback software, FeedbackExpress, for a month now and without question, my seller metrics are improving. The carefully worded emails they have produced are without question getting more customers to leave positive feedback and product reviews.”

You are in no way obligated to give them a ‘good’ review, as you know. My advice is to simply respond with “I would love to review this, thanks!” After you get the product, feel free to send them feedback about asking you to write a ‘good’ review. Again, in my experience, no Seller has ever responded to my critiques of their emails. Which is why I wrote a blog post on the subject of writing better emails to Reviewers.

Readers, keep in mind that the above company charges $5 per application to be a reviewer. The instructions were a bit confusing and lengthy, so I don’t know what that $5 really gets you, and if you have to pay each month, or each time you want to receive something. Please do your own due diligence, I do not know anything more about them than what you can read on their site. I am not affiliated with them.

Thank you for sharing these many great opinions. Wanted to share some of my story. I started my e-business 6 months ago, I have my own e-commerce website KelementStore.com, as well as Amazon marketplace store, tried many marketing strategies to promote my own website, such as Google AdWords, social media, referral program, only to realize only Amazon can move some quantity, even when I didn’t do any marketing on Amazon (not eligible as a new Amazon seller). I’m very grateful for the initial 5 star reviews I got, those genuine words quickly brought in sales. Then when the sales grow, bad customers come up, they didn’t like the product or there were misunderstanding, and these people refuse to communicate, just threw you bad reviews. I’ve consulted Amazon customer service on how to deal with such unfair situation, Amazon only removed a couple that violates their review/feedback guideline. Just like we would meet mean people in real life, they exist on the Internet too. I agree with Megan that the best thing to do in such situation is to get more positive reviews to bury the bad ones, but once there’s a bad one, your sales drop, and you seemed to have to search for paid reviews, but will also worry about being caught by Amazon. It’s a painful dilemma, I’m still struggling on the decisions and looking for good reviewers. I become a more active and positive reviewer now, since I know how hard and important it is to maintain a good reputation. Hope the same for every other sellers.

AMZBlitz is a new Amazon product testing program offering very deep discounts on Amazon products that you can test and keep. It’s so new that details of the program are very limited. Available for shoppers in USA.

First and foremost, we are a review site – not a news site. We won’t have updates and announcements of new product launches or news about upcoming changes to the latest and greatest handheld gadget before its released. You can visit one of the other Purch brands for that.

Just as you can buy almost anything on Amazon, it is also possible to get almost anything for free or nearly free. Whether you want to join a program with flexible shopping options or only want to join one that offers products for one particular brand, there is an Amazon review site for you.

I review all of the time, but I’m wanting to start reviewing bigger products. Such as Bluetooth Speakers, and things like that. So, my question is how do I go about getting approved to review bigger products. Any advice you can give me would be wonderful.

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 and very rarely poses a threat. Each stage also lacks depth of gameplay to the various roles that you can play.

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.

— “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).

A few of the different product you can buy include scales, power strips that also charge USB outlets or controlled by remote control, camping supplies, and other supplies that can be useful for DIY projects around the house.

Now, the companies you have listed gives out free products in return for a review so you can help them market their brand. These products you are reviewing is already in stores so all the companies need from you is a review.

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

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.

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

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.

I’ve always wanted to do this, but think I’m too honest for them. I’ve been an Amazon customer since Amazon debut, have purchased hundreds — if not thousands — of items, and have reviewed nearly every single one of them. Why? Because I LOVE writing reviews.

“amazon product review articles _amazon products to review”

There are companies that choose to send me the product directly. I often notify them of the option of a coupon code and tell them the benefits above. I find a lot of companies don’t even know they can do that, and about half choose to send a coupon code.

That’s just stupid way to say its a stupid guess. If I buy headphones that light up or l LA Gear shoes that light up guess what i would brag about. Just like if I bought healys. The wheels. If your a new company I’m sure they do a few adds and post on there own Instagram or facebook pages. I always look for the cheaper version. If I get it I open all my mail over the counter I can see why a counter would be in the back ground or even the foreground. My question is how can I get this great free stuff to review. And my next question is why can’t I say I’m an official tester for myself or my blog and charge for reviews. If I order the product and its only available in amazon and I buy it regardless if review or not then is that not unfair and a monopoly almost from amazon as well. I get it you have to only sell there products at there prices and fees and they are also secret investors in new products making there reviews of any product invested in by amazon or any of its st an holders major ftc violations if they in any way have any of there own products invested or owned by them or an affiliate. Its all conflict of interest law but who is in the worst amazon because its double and triple dipping.

I’ve heard of Houseparty.com and forgot to mention them on this post, adding now. Even though they don’t pay it’s still great to get all the free stuff and have a get together at your house. Thanks girl!

With product testing sites, the latter is less common than the first. Furthermore, most sites send coupon codes so they and or the Seller can use the Amazon Seller Center to track usage, and more importantly, get the “Verified purchase” badge on the review.

So based on that, I personally don’t think ProductTestingUsa.com is a real legit product testing company. Keep in mind that this is from my very limited interaction with their website and that of Tracy’s experience.

The point of the Vine program – which vendors pay to be included in – is to get reviews when something comes out, rather than waiting for them to aggregate organically. I can understand why some vendors want to get their products noticed like that.

Please Note:  Recent changes to Amazon.com’s terms of service prohibit “incentivized reviews”.  This means that reviewers can not accept free or discounted products (or other incentives) in exchange for providing reviews on Amazon.com or its affiliated shopping services.  Please do not use our service for these purposes.

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

I just started doing some Amazon product reviewing. So, thank you for all of this great information about being an Amazon The comments have been a great source of additional information. I even sent a company to this blog address to read this so they could have a better understanding from the Amazon seller side. Now I need to go research ILoveToReview.com

On the one hand, I do have sellers that solicit me for product reviews, so I would be doing something that would also help their small businesses grow. Would I be discerning and not contact sellers that either sent me inferior products or sellers that I declined products from because their product seemed inferior? Or would I handle it from a perspective of more seller referrals may net more money for me and increased free/discounted products for me and the review community? On one hand, we are each responsible for deciding whether to perform due diligence prior to accepting to review a product. On the other hand, I may not want to encourage relationship building with sellers of inferior products as it may result in an (likely unwanted) increase emails from them asking me to review (likely more inferior) products?

Anyway, I am interested in your thoughts about participating this as a reviewer, and your thoughts on the implications on this all the way around – especially the implications impacting the reviewer that chooses to accept this invitation and aggressively pursue seller contacts.

I would highly NOT recommend Snagshout. The first couple products I snagged, I redeemed with no problem. Within the past 3 weeks, I have tried snagging nearly 10 products total. Every single code I was given, did not work on Amazon. You then have to contact Snagshout so they can delete your snag, so it opens that spot up again. Because as this article mentions, you can only have a certain amount of Snags. One at first, then I was opened up to 3 at once. One of the products was re-released with a promised “fixed code,” but lo and behold, I snagged it and again, the code was invalid. I wouldn’t waste your time with this site!

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

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!

No. All Vine products are submitted by vendors to Amazon, and distributed by Amazon to the Vine Voices. Vendors have no contact with the Vine Voices, and have no influence over which Vine Voices will review their products.

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

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

Never had a problem with a review getting rejected. I did have one negative review generate a few dozen downvotes and angry replies from fanboys of the product but the review is still up there to be seen (granted it is buried under the downvotes).

Childish, my foot. If you don’t think others are jealous of those who get things for free, you have limited knowledge of human nature. No one said the program does not have problems. It’s certainly not a perfect program free of problem reviews. But look at all the non-Vine reviews at Amazon–you think they are all wonderful and honest simply because the reviewer may have paid for the item? No, they are not. Personally, I like to think most readers of reviews are intelligent enough to tell a good review from a bad one; an honest one from a fake one; and who certainly don’t simply look at how many stars the reviewer gave, as opposed to reading the review in a critical manner.

Let’s say I am an Amazon seller and I want to get some reviews on my product(s) in order to drive up the sales. Finding buyers individually and contacting them would be time-consuming and tedious. Not to mention, you can’t be sure if the people who you send your product to for free will even leave a review.

This is new kid on the block. Launched just this year, it promises free registration and a multitude of products choices. If they deem you suitable for any particular review work, they will notify you through e-mail.

It’s worth noting that NetGalley provides free ebooks to reviewers, and a lot of Amazon reviewers use that, as do I. I read a lot, and I like to review books, and It’s great to get some books I wouldn’t have bought from NetGalley.

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.

The bottomline is the introduction of bias and this lengthy response confirms that for me. I appreciate an emotional reaction to a product because #human so bashing those out of hand further emphasizes a departure from what a regular reader is looking for in the Amazon reviews. I greatly value review authors who employ a more systematic approach but my personal feeling is that a review made by a person looking for a specific product for their use and then buying it with their own money will always be more valuable to me than a review created after getting the product free. When I want those types of reviews, I visit a site like the wirecutter outside of the Amazon reviews environment so I have some context for where the bias is coming from. I loved this article for taking these reviews to task!! Thank you!!

Do your best to stay away from writing only a pure positive review: they seem fake since there should be at least one thing they could improve on. It’s hard to think of a book or product that is perfect. Plus, these reviews read more like the book author’s family members or company employees than real reviewers.

I would also add as review source the professional reviewers communities. You can find them on giveaway websites or on facebook groups. I use their service and some of them write really good reviews, detailed and documented with photos or video.

As for your 80 product reviews…don’t sweat it! I have heard people getting asked after 3 reviews. It is sort of a crap shoot based on the products you have reviewed. Sellers look through competitor’s products for recent reviews and clicks on the reviewer’s names to see if their Profile has an email address. The products/categories you reviewed may not be searched for right now, or your reviews may be under dozens of other more recent reviews, or a multitude of reasons. Keep at it—and make sure your profile is complete with email address—I’m certain that you will start to get more Sellers contacting you directly.

Create your detailed request to review the product. Include the link to your Amazon profile, the product name or ASIN in your request, and what kind of review you will do (detailed, with pictures, seller feedback, etc).

Janet, Make sure there is nothing else in your cart, most codes will not work if there is. If it does not ‘apply’ and gives you an error message there are several things different options you can try.

The Platform offers discounts for several Elsevier services, including Elsevier’s WebShop, which offers professional English language editing, Translation and Illustration services for researchers preparing their articles, and the Elsevier Book Store.

An amen from the choir and great article Lauren! I agree that Amazon could do a better job at dropping the hammer on fake reviews and reducing overall bias within real reviews. I have written Amazon in the past regarding the bias that Vine and other similar programs introduce to reviews. I’d love to see Amazon tab those types of reviews separately so you could easily compare “sponsored reviews” from the rest (including having more transparency in the average rating score) rather than just tagging the review with the Vine program logo. It reinforces my negative opinion when reaction by sponsored reviewers is so defensive. I get that these folks have a passion for what they do, I just don’t appreciate having their reviews sprinkled alongside paying customer reviews inside the portal. I think Amazon should have adopted a similar approach to rewarding top reviewers as Yelp and YouTube have done in rewarding these people separately from their service through invitation to thank you events and in ways that do not introduce bias but rather reward their passion!

Oh I think I am rambling again…sorry, but I think finding this out explained where my down votes had come from and why!!! Its saddening really, I believe everyone has the right to accept products for free in return for a review if that is what they want to do so why certain feel the need to get more and be better than you is beyond me, why would it satisfy them to push that unhelpful button just to ensure their review remains the top rated???? It hasn’t happened again since but I haven’t reviewed the same products as them yet but I am aware of their tactic and will keep an eye on it. I don’t actually know what could be done other than down vote their reviews but I’m not like that and I won’t stoop to that level or get sucked into their petty wee game plus at the end of the day I can’t prove it was them. I have no idea what take Amazon would have on this either if it was happening all the time and started to become an issue?? I remember reading a post from someone who was on the Vine Programme and admitted that those reviewers have formed cliques, the gossip and backstabbing is awful among them and its all very cut throat!! Craaaazy, wouldn’t it be better if they just respected each other and do their reviews rather than get so competitive about it all.. I guess it boils down to some people having the nature of begrudging and do not like someone else getting on or doing better than them and when it comes to receiving free products greed and jealousy gets mixed into the pot also. I have ignored it so far Lynn and just keep my head down and carry on enjoying writing my reviews but yes, looks like we have attracted a little troll or two on our journey!! 🙂

I can 100% guarantee you that BzzAgent does *not* pay you. They never have. I think you might be confusing them with another company. BzzAgent will award MyPoints for surveys and some activities, however.

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.

They have a large marketplace of products that are free and heavily discounted, and has a search/filtering mechanism to make it easier to find product you like. Available to reviewers in USA, UK, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico.

Some product are more expensive at amazon than in the stores: Casa Giulia Sour chery preserve 12.35 oz $2.99 at World Market and S10.25 at Amazon. Ginger powder and White pepper 1 oz jar is more expensive then a 8oz at Smart and Final, World Market and even Ralphs Supermarket. Listerine is more expensive than Rite Aid or even supermarket

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.

The Chinese are, in this respect, reprehensible. A while ago, students at a Chinese high school rioted because the administrators had severely cracked down on cheating. Why were the students mad? Because they claimed that they would be at a severe competitive disadvantage with the other schools, where the cheating was left intact. This is the poisoned fruit that falls from the tree down to us.

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

Paid surveys is a great way to earn extra money on the side and plus the perks of getting free products and more. Don’t feel discourage and keep completing surveys and you’ll reap the benefits! Let me know if you need any other help.

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

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!

as a result of my experiences in the last year or two, i generally no longer trust amazon enough to purchase items sold or fulfilled by them. instead, if i need to purchase something from a smaller manufacturer that i find on amazon, i now go directly to their own website, if they have one, where i can be sure i’m getting the real thing and there is an assurance of quality and accountability.”

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

Welcome to FeedbackExpress’ weekly round-up of the top five stories from the world of Amazon and ecommerce. Amazon is in talks to launch checking accounts: Carleton English at The New York Post reports that Amazon

What about Offerbucks ? It’s suppose to be a site that offers you money for doing offers. I looked at a site that gave it a 99% legit rating and it’s partnered with Product Testing USA, Just wasn’t sure if I should trust it.

If you want a good example of fake GOOD book reviews though, try looking at Ryan Holiday’s “Trust Me, I’m Lying.” And then read the “most helpful” (and practically sole) one-star review on the page. Hilarious.

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.

Choose your link text wisely – It’s normal for people to link back to your website with link text that is simply your domain name (ex: http://mywebsite.com ).  You should ask them to occasionally change the link text to the keywords that you want to rank for on the search engines. For example if you want to rank for “cheap widget” then your link text should be “cheap widget”.

One of the reasons why Amazon is such a popular online destination is that many products are accompanied by hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of product reviews from everyday consumers who can speak with first-hand authority to the merits of whatever item is being considered. As a result, consumers are able to make more informed shopping decisions and steer clear of items they might ultimately regret purchasing. Of course, with the Internet being what it is, Amazon’s vast library of product reviews are also filled with a good number of  sarcastic, biting, clever, and downright hilarious responses. Some even speculate that these reviews may be responsible for Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ distinctive laugh.

I just signed up with amzrc.com, but I realize everytime I click on a deal to review a product in exchange for a discount, it takes me to the USA amazon website. I live in Canada. I am not sure if I can purchase any these deals without incurring border fees?

I will always write honest reviews and if that means I one day find that I am unable to get products, because I’ve rated too many negatively, then that’s what will happen and I’ll move on. Until then, if I can get a discount solely for writing an honest review, I will do so. I feel absolutely no sense of duty to use kid gloves on any product I get a discount on, because the rules are very clear; the reviews I am writing are to be honest. That is the only thing I owe the company, is an *honest* review.

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.

I went through the registration process and after I did all of that it simply brought me to a page where I was asked to sign up for 2 other survey panels (which are legit because I use them myself) and then they said we will contact you if we have product testing opportunities. It seems like they are just trying to get you to sign up for those sites so they can get a commission, which there is nothing wrong with that, but pretending to be a product testing company and misleading people in order to make money off of them is not right.

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).

I have seen MANY “verified purchase reviews” on Amazon..the reviews make me think the reviewer received the product for FREE. Seriously, if i’m looking a sheet sets..I always see the reviews that state they wrote review in exchange for receiving the item “free or deeply discounted”. However, I have yet to come across ANY of these sites that send out products to customers “free of charge” in return for a review…so, I’m just curious if Amazon does that? Also, the sites i’ve been too that have products listed for sale…are usually cheap knockoffs of products like the ‘Fitbit’ or the many different kinds of ‘smart watch’. I have never-ever found one that offered nice sheet sets… cookware…beauty products…pet products, etc. It’s amazing how manipulative some companies can be now days through their advertising & online ads. smh

Did You Know: I was featured in Dr. Oz’s February 2014 issue of Dr. Oz’s The Good Life magazine, eBay’s blog discussing about me reviewing products and getting paid by these name brand companies, Woman’s World Magazine March 2016 issue, and First For Women Magazine April 2017 issue all about me testing products!

Amazon is the place where people can find essential items at good prices or profitably to sell their merchandize. This website has been helping out business owners and common folk for many years. Time for you to harness its potential and make profitable deals.

You’re suggesting that the big companies such as Lego, Otterbox, Disney and others have a monopoly. You’re not giving the little guy a chance… These websites are helping small businesses. Get yourself together and think outside of the box.

The one thing you have to take note of is that sometimes there are different rules for each specific product, so be sure to read them carefully. For example, instead of leaving a product review, they may require you to write a blog post about it instead.

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 article makes no mention of clicking on the user name and seeing their review history. I clicked on a user yesterday, and she had a history of 16 reviews…all on the same day. Apparently TheWireCutter never thought of doing that. Unimpressed.

This is easy: don’t review 10 eye liners unless you want to asked to review a new eye liner. If you review only XBox games, then I would expect only XBox games companies to ask you to review their games. Your reviews are a portfolio of your interests, and expect suppliers to treat them that way.

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.

Hey Shannon! I would say, always complete the surveys the survey panels will send you to your email box. Some surveys will end up being a product test for you to do at home. Some people get a lot of products to test and some do not, it all depends on what the company is looking for to review their products.

The sellers with the most positive feedback tend to do the best on Amazon. Take control of your online reputation and reap the rewards of greater bottom line performance. Win the buy box more often and beat your competitors by maintaining a stellar Amazon seller rating.

When I used to use the site a few years back, they’d actually send out surveys after the products and you would get paid a few bucks if you took the survey. That was on top of getting the product. So maybe they changed somethings now. I haven’t used the site in a while.

This is a great article and as a person that does test sample products from amazon sellers I can say that I absolutely hate the fake reviews, it ruins the whole process. I take pride in my honest opinion and review of the products I test , I also update my review if something were to go wrong along the way with the item as well. Fake reviews just make it hard on those of us who are genuine and want to help the consumer get an idea of what they can expect from the product they’re looking at . I am one of the people that rely on word of mouth and honest reviews while shopping or looking at a business, it’s often what helps me decide .

“how do i review products on amazon -how do i review products for amazon”

If the reviewer did not purchase from you, unfortunately there is no way for you to contact him privately. However, it is still possible to leave a comment on Amazon. In fact, Review Central enables you to post a comment for a specific review on Amazon immediately instead of searching and browsing for that reviewed product page on your own.

Our community guidelines have always prohibited compensation for reviews, with an exception – reviewers could post a review in exchange for a free or discounted product as long as they disclosed that fact. These so-called ‘incentivized reviews’ make up only a tiny fraction of the tens of millions of reviews on Amazon, and when done carefully, they can be helpful to customers by providing a foundation of reviews for new or less well-known products.

You either like what the person wrote about the product, or you don’t. If you don’t, you move along to the next post/review. People that write good reviews, would get voted up/aka rewarded with a higher percentage, those who don’t offer a good review won’t get the praise – or the increase in percentage.

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.

Thanks for the tips. I’ve actually been using personal information that’s close to mine so easy to remember but not really me. Real address though; haven’t figured out a convenient way around that one.

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.

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 .

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.

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

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.

This article is extremely out of date and completely incorrect. The invitation criteria is not known by the public nor Vine members. Anything purported above is nothing but a guess. Not totally impossible, but still a guess.

This was also a decision has hit the private label community like a sledgehammer. “Now what?” is the question you see most often around the different Amazon private label Facebook groups. The number one trick that most private labelers used to increase their sales velocity and trust is gone.

Please can u suggest some websites for Indian users.. i found ur blog useful! but mostly the products are for US or other western countries. Please tell me genuine product testing websites for us. I live in India.

Amazon doesn’t provide much information on how it makes that decision. For example, we found Vine Voice reviewers who received 4,000 helpful votes. Some Hall of Famers have received over 88,000 votes but are not a part of the program. There is clearly no exact science in play here. One Vine Voice reviewer posted on Quora that he received his invite with over 30 reviews and over 300 helpful votes. In addition to numbers, according to him, it also depends on which categories Amazon is looking to add new Vine Voices — in other words — there’s no guarantee.

Product Testing USA is a JOKE! and a SCAM! I mistakenly signed up with them and all I have received is 20+ calls a day from various companies trying to sell me stuff or give me quotes. Yes, they ask you all these questions on if you’re interested in different things and I said NO to each and every one of them – but that doesn’t mean anything. So, my phone is ringing off the hook and the only way to combat it is to answer and let them know I never requested whatever it is they are offering and to tell them to please remove this number from their list. My mistake – Live and Learn – but please save yourself the aggravation and stay away from Product Testing USA.

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.

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.

It’s really helpful as it catches almost all mistakes that I might make. Nothing huge, but just little “hte,” instead of “the,” etc. I include that one because it sends me a report every Sunday that goes over improvements I might work on and a listing of my most corrected words. That one shows up a lot :). Just being careless…

Compared to the earlier one, this Honest Society function more as an online community, where members are encouraged to offer their honest and unbiased opinions. The products featured on the review list can be quite a mixed bag, ranging from electronics to audio, to cosmetics. In return, you get the stuff free or at a 90% discount.

The only real negative with this tank is that it shows up on radar a little more than I like (although there is a polyresin graphite stealth model available). Also, the included spare isn’t full size.

I love tomoson!!! Best one of all these. Gives me so many products a month I usually have abt four items at a time to review and it’s so easy!!! Amazon review trader has been slow they were good when I first signed up one of the very firsts to get a product from and got a few more however now I keep getting deals without being prime eligible so then I end up having to pay for shipping when the product is free which is ridiculous however I can not figure out how to know if it’s prime eligible or not before I Accept the promo. And then I try and contact the sellers and no response. This is an issue with abt four of my promos right now and I can’t seem to get and answer so I’m not really a big fan of them anymore. I am completely satisfied with tomoson tho :). Can’t wait for more updates if you have any.

TestZon was only launched in 2016 and already shows multiple signs of being a great place to shop for nearly free. If it isn’t already, TestZon needs to be on your short list. They have products for almost every category imaginable and can test many for free including video game headsets, swim goggles, and clothing. If something isn’t free, you can find many other items for sale for only a few pennies. 

This is possible. But another factor is a filtering bias: Vine reviewers choose which products to receive and review from a list. In my experience, I’m much more likely to request an item that I think will turn out to be good and that I’ll like. There’s nothing in it for me if I get something for review and it turns out to be crap. So, many crappy items simply don’t get requested for Vine reviews in the first place.

Hopefully Tesla or some other forward-thinking car manufacturer will soon start making these steering wheel compatible work trays standard. Just look at how productive it might make the morning commute for millions of people across the globe.

The point of the Vine program – which vendors pay to be included in – is to get reviews when something comes out, rather than waiting for them to aggregate organically. I can understand why some vendors want to get their products noticed like that.

I recommend always sticking to your guns and only dealing with people who you believe won’t ask something shady of you. There are plenty of new products coming out every day so you won’t be missing out on anything. You’ll just feel better in the long run by keeping your integrity.

I bought Ariely’s book because Frank, the producer for my business makeover segments on MSNBC’s Your Business, suggested it while we were chomping down some sushi. I think he mentioned the title once while he reached for a piece of toro. We didn’t discuss it further, but it was just enough of a trigger that the next time I was on Amazon I looked up the title. That’s when the 463 reviews convinced me to buy it, over all the alternatives.

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!

“how to get amazon products free to review +free products for amazon reviews uk”

Hi,I agree with you,because I am a seller on amazon,I do not want to spent more money to get review like you say,my items are all in high quality,but,no review no orders,especially good review.I hope all reviewers review honestly,but…………..

“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 “And we limit the total number of Vine reviews that we display for each product,” he adds.

Now since they are already invested in you to a degree, they are also the best people to ask for a genuine review, the ones who buy your book on Amazon and review it. How do you get them to do this? Compose a strong email to them appealing to their passion for and knowledge of your genre, as well as their previous interest in your work. For some, that will be enough to pique their interest. For others, you may want to offer to supply them with the book for free. This way you are getting genuine reviews since the books were purchased through the site, but you haven’t required them to buy your book to do so.

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.

If they see you’re unlikely to leave reviews, they most likely won’t give it to you. For this reason we recommend leaving a few reviews on products you’ve previously purchased before trying AMZ Review Trader.

FeedbackFive is an automation tool with a purpose – to solicit feedback. This doesn’t mean, however, that the interaction can’t feel warm and personal while accomplishing that goal. In fact, you’re more likely to actually get a response if you do more than send a standard, plain-vanilla message.

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!

I said no such thing about Vine reviewers being “free from biases”. I am saying Vine reviewers are like non-Vine reviewers at Amazon–some reviews are good, some are bad, some are honest, some are dishonest. Those who read reviews need to do so in a critical manner. Not everyone is jealous of those who get things for free, but it’s a pretty common feeling among humans, yes. Some of those who are jealous will then write negative things out of jealousy, but my personal belief is most people are not vindictive. And if you would go back and read my first post, you will see I was not questioning or condemning the entire article, only the totally untrue statement that few Vine reviews were “negative or even critical”. Okay?

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).

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

You have a few ways to suss out what may be a fake review. The easiest way is to use Fakespot. This site allows you to paste the link to any Amazon product and receive a score regarding the likelihood of fake reviews.

That’s just bullshit because amazon allows reviews without purchasing and its different from the rest because amazon has a stake in kindle and they profit more no matter what on digital content. That would be illegally allowing that market to be inuenced only based on there own guaranteed financial gains. On top of membership access fees for kindle

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

amanda I don’t really want money but would like to get some gifts back I try. can u give me some sites that are ok to work with? I have never done this I am 77 and would like to try without getting scammed can u email me at (removed by editor).

4.      Fish around for emails. Many popular reviewers will have their email addresses on their profile page. If you don’t see an email address, you’ll have to try reaching out via social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.)

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.

Once you have enough of those reviews, you can contact the sellers directly and offer them a review in exchange for a free product. And since you already have a good history and track record of being a top reviewer, seller will gladly give you their product for free.

If you see a fu***** building with a sign says Amazon do not even bother buy there s***** slop they are the most sorry jerks ull never want to know there products stink there atmosphere stinks with my hearts content no one would ever be so unwilling to EVER help their company grow I’m rating them 1 star and 0 if I could…DIE AMAZON!!!! Burn in hell

This has been really helpful to me. I review on Amazon too but not a Vine member. I have always wondered about some of the things that you have shared here. Thanks. I sure hope I get to be a Vine member eventually.

I will always write honest reviews and if that means I one day find that I am unable to get products, because I’ve rated too many negatively, then that’s what will happen and I’ll move on. Until then, if I can get a discount solely for writing an honest review, I will do so. I feel absolutely no sense of duty to use kid gloves on any product I get a discount on, because the rules are very clear; the reviews I am writing are to be honest. That is the only thing I owe the company, is an *honest* review.

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.

“review the products directory amazon amazon product review tester”

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

We are all about helping you find the product or service that works for you. We exist to make your complicated buying decisions easier. If you ever have any specific questions about the reviews on our site, please contact us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

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

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

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

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

Something that needs to be mentioned is that if you are doing discounted reviews or free product reviews, you are required to leave a disclaimer stating that you got a promotional discount or free product. Its not an amazon reg but an Federal Trade Commission regulation

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

With banks and retailers increasingly communicating their best deals over Twitter and Facebook, it can literally pay to follow or friend them. You can also use social media to request refunds or report problems, which can translate into savings. Just be sure to keep personal information like account numbers offline or in private messages. 

This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.

I am a voracious reader and often read 2-3 novels and non-fiction per week. However, I don’t care too much for sci-fi and when I discovered Wool, I was concerned if it would appeal to a person who isn’t typically interested in sci-fi. The book was at the time the #1 ranked purchase on Kindle and had been downloaded almost double as many times as its nearest competitor. Thusly, I ordered and read the book despite the fact in all the reviews I couldn’t find one mention of anyone enjoying it despite not typically reading sci-fi.

The Bad: EA put too much hype out there about it for way too long. They had everyone drooling over this games possibilities for YEARS. Talking like if gamers played this game every day, all day, it would take almost 80 years for them to explore all the games possible stars in the galaxy. And of course when the makers of Sims say something like that, it’s very believable and appealing. But the game just didn’t live up to the hype.

You have to wonder If there is a negativity bias behind this article. Its like they’re implyingnyhay negative reviews are more legitimate than positive. However. When someone has an ax. to grind its not unusual for them to get friends to gangup on a product and lost very extreme negative reviews in an effort to take down someone they dislike. That’s a far worse problemproblem the negative review trolls.

I review all of the time, but I’m wanting to start reviewing bigger products. Such as Bluetooth Speakers, and things like that. So, my question is how do I go about getting approved to review bigger products. Any advice you can give me would be wonderful.

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

This site launched at the end of July 2016. They show a handful of sample products on their home page: costumes, toys, beauty supplies, electronics, speakers, phone cases, apparel, video and more. Available for reviewers in the UK.

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

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

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.

Even if you don’t manage your feedback in FeedbackFive, you can still sign up for an account to track product reviews. If you do that, you will have access to the “My Product Reviews” interface and will be able to see other pages, but we won’t import orders or send emails on your behalf. If you’re a FeedbackFive user already, “My Product Reviews” will appear in your dashboard’s sidebar. You can track two ASINs for free, or you can sign up for this enhancement to your account, which starts at $9.95 per month.

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

I’m a Vine reviewer and I’d like to address some misconceptions in the article and comments. I love thewirecutter.com, and so I’d like to contribute by giving my understanding as a Viner who’s been doing it for several years:

“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…”

If your customers aren’t sharing lots of photos on your store, you can ask for permission to repurpose those you’ve found on social media (like Instagram and Twitter) as a review with credit. This is a powerful form of social proof and can make your product pages look amazing!

I use the “search” feature when reading reviews to look for my weight/size and see if people with a similar body type posted their experience. This is especially helpful when sizes don’t run true to size!

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

Since January 14, I have tried to get some one form either Amazon and/or HomeTown, to organise the return and refund. Nobody, either at Amazon and/or at HomeTown seems to care about the multiple emails, and complaints sent this January 14.

2. USE a MASTER COPY OF your 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.

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

While an interest in the products enrolled in the program is key to getting an invite — aside from looking for Vine reviews on Amazon (which is not an easy task), there’s no real way to know which products are enrolled. All we know is that vendors pay to have their products included — a fact that Amazon did not initially disclose, leading to some negative coverage of the program in the past.

You may have heard of an Amazon program called Vine (members are Vine Voices and get a badge.) It is an Amazon sponsored program to help suppliers get their products into the hands of seasoned reviewers before and during the launch of the product on Amazon. This way a new product has a handful of reviews, or more. As I stated above, having genuine reviews of a product actually help online sales.

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?

Wow, I am sorry to hear about that, Todd. Although some may say it’s the way of capitalism, I personally don’t think that’s right, they get your product with a discount in exchange for their review, but they turn around and try to compete with you.

Hi Megan,Very interesting article. I have only had time to peruse it, I will digest it later when time permits. However,my problem is how to get that first virgin Amazon review. I purchased hard copies of my book, handed someout and mailed others. One recipient tried to write a review on Amazon, but was politely told he didn’t buy thebook from them, so they wouldn’t accept his review.I have written to a few reviewers, but didn’t get a reply.How do I get off the mark?Sincerely yours Michael Conlan  

What about Offerbucks ? It’s suppose to be a site that offers you money for doing offers. I looked at a site that gave it a 99% legit rating and it’s partnered with Product Testing USA, Just wasn’t sure if I should trust it.

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.

CR helped to mobilize support in Congress to create the CFPB, an independent agency responsible for overseeing the financial industry with powers to police abusive practices and to enact new consumer protections.

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.

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.

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.

There is none that specializes in electronics. Some of them do send you electronics here and there, but I don’t think there is much of a chance to get a phone. Its mainly small electronics like chargers, headphones, etc.

You actually can narrow your options on Amazon to show only reviews from the specific version you have selected. When you go into ‘show all reviews’, there’s a series of drop down boxes to filter by reviewers (all / verified purchasers), star ratings, and formats (all / this specific version only).

Great article, but I did not set up reviews 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?

You are not required to leave a 5-Star review. If it deserves 5 stars, give it 5 stars; If it deserves 1 star, give it 1 star. Don’t let a seller or group bully you into a good review for a bad product.

And it doesn’t even need to be as complicated as that. A video went viral earlier this year purporting to show a click farm in China, with thousands of phones dedicated to inflating the scores of mobile apps. Ooi says similar operations exist, based mainly in China and Eastern Europe, to do the same for Amazon reviews.

I’d recommend Dollar Review Club. Free. I’ve reviewed 4,5 deals there with little issues. Happen one time that the code went expired and their customer service feedbacked to me within several hours and I got my quota back to claim another product. Better than what I experienced in other review sites where my question kept no response and I could only find it through FAQ with anger. If you are reviewer I think you can give a try. (Also found that it’s also free for seller to upload products there now…? interesting)

The new case, however, does not specify the identities of the defendants, but instead names anonymous individuals known as “John Does 1-1114.” Amazon tells the court it will add their names at a later date once the company identifies who they are (presumably by asking internet providers to identify their IP addresses).
