“review products for amazon uk _amazon product review gummy bears”

If anyone is looking for a group to get amazon products for free or deeply discounted go to Reviews4Success.com and they just added a bunch of new products. They are a legit company and if you are a seller you can use them for product promotion.

Hi I am a manufacturer how/where do i get a list of specific UK Amazon reviewers in order to send them specific products they would normally review? I am not sure where I get the Amazon reviewers details from in order to make contact with them?

I work at a large e-commerce company in the Netherlands and this is how I have generate the most product and shop review on our site. After a lot of A/B testing I have increased the conversion (review written) on the e-mail with 24% in the last year. Yes, yes I know… not everyone will be able to get the same results, I just wanted to share some insights.

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.

If you sign up for dhgate’s magazine/catalog then every month when they mail it to you there are at least 4 samples inside like eye brightener, velvet skin coat cream, etc. I got one yesterday actually.

Just like our name suggests, we review products. For over 14 years, we’ve been one of the largest and most comprehensive product review sites on the web, with tens of thousands of reviews and rankings in categories that include services, software, electronics, business, computers, home appliances and more.

6 Months on I currently ranked 173 on Amazon UK, and as a result I am contacted everyday by third party sellers offering me free samples in return for my honest review, unfortunately as of yet I have not been invited to join the Vine program. The vast majority of companies that contact me are based in China who’s product are stocked in UK Amazon distribution centres and are usually delivered next day via Prime, but some items are sent from China or Malaysia.

As for being attacked, don’t write your review with that fear in mind. You are supposed to be writing for the customer in mind. I wrote a negative review about some probiotics once, and it gets more up-votes than any other product I reviewed recently. I still get asked to review probiotics (which I don’t accept anymore.)

In a lawsuit filed on Friday, Amazon (AMZN) asked a Washington state court to grant damages against a group of people who it says posted phony 5-star reviews in exchange for $5. In some cases, the company used undercover agents to conduct transactions with the fake reviewers.

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

Elite deals and uber are pretty bad. Deals sell out within seconds so its hard to get them. I have gotten a few through elite, but they have grown beyond their capabilities. Uber…I have attempted numerous deals only to get the invalid code error every single time.

It is hard to say without knowing their techniques. The problem with this task is that there is often no hard proof that the detection is actually correct unless the author of the actual fake reviews (not made up fake reviews) from a review hosting site confirms it. Of course, it is easier if the company actually hosts reviews (e.g., Amazon or Yelp) because they can analyze the public information that the general public can see and also (more importantly) their internal data which tracks all the activities after a person comes to the website. A lot of unusual behaviors can be detected. Unfortunately, such data is not available to people outside the site.

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.

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).

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.

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

I absolutely love this site. It is very exciting to watch out for and anticipate the latest products they will post. Also, its ease of use and the quality of the products represented makes this one of my favorite product review sites.

I have bought a computer it is great no problems very fast. Delivered when it was suppose to be very please my account is Bernice wiley and husband James Larry poole live in alto. Ga Thinks amazon is great oh yes and stand behind their products

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

Hi Kristin, I replied just above your comment about being careful posting your personal Amazon profile publicly. I understand why you want to do it, I would too if someone had not told me all of the horror stories about things people do with other people’s profiles. Another big problem right now is people stealing other’s reviews, copying and pasting them word for word. Good luck and stay safe, LW

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.

We cut drives with reported speeds significantly slower than our previous pick, including popular models from Kingston, Lexar, Patriot, SanDisk, Transcend, and others. We also eliminated drives with SSD controllers because the few models out there are too expensive unless you absolutely need the fastest storage you can get.

So what are you, the average Amazon shopper, to do? You can avail yourself of sites like Fakespot and ReviewMeta. Both readily admit that their algorithms aren’t perfect, but they do help spotlight products with “too good to be true” reviews attached to them. You can read reviews yourself, and check for things like a ton of unverified five-star reviews — in my experience, a sure sign that something fishy is going on with a product’s review score. And you can click through and check out a reviewer’s history. If a reviewer only has a few reviews, or has hidden their review history, take their feedback with a grain of salt.

Most of the offers ask me if I am interested in the item first and then give me the info to get them. A few, however, just send out a lists of codes with a first come, first served approach. I can’t check my email non-stop, so I have missed out on all of those.

There is also a new site that offers products to Amazon reviewers. good if you have prime. It is called Reviewmyitem.com I have not received too many offers from them, but the ones i do receive were very good offers.

I don’t think reviewer ranks plays a heavy role. Maybe some companies think top reviewers are better. But the fact that there are so few reviewers on Amazon with contact info leads me to believe that profiles that have recent activity and at least a handful of well-written reviews are good candidates for companies to reach out to.

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.

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.

Plus, most get paid to reviews sites emphasize on writing reviews based on your true experience, and if you don’t, they will eventually catch up with you, which might lead you to lose your chance to get paid to review.

This is the online guerrilla marketing method of PR. There is a unique benefit of getting product reviews from other websites that helps increase brand credibility and trustworthiness in addition to word-of-mouth marketing.

Home Product Testing has a relatively smaller base with only 28,000+ registered product testers. They do have good offers if you are looking for products to use in your kitchen or around your house. It is also possible to try out supplements, fashion accessories, and other items like sleeping bags.

As Product Elf has grown in popularity so quickly, they have over 40,000 reviewers, discount codes can disappear quickly. New offers are uploaded on a daily basis as sellers are launching new products all the time.

Thanks for the reply. You’re entitled to your assumptions just as any reviewer is entitled to give his honest opinion. I leave five star reviews for products that work exactly as advertised and whose over all quality meets or exceeds the price point. To me a four star review suggests that the product has some specific flaw[s], if only minor. Since the Anker headphones I got for my tenant performed perfectly in my test, very good sound quality and no perceptible physical defects, I left a five star review.

Navigating today’s tech, whether it’s for home, work or the backyard, can be tough. Sure, it would be awesome if you could all fill your cart with the 10 best products, take them home, try them out and return the nine you don’t want. Unfortunately, that’s the stuff of fairy tales. None of us have the time.

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

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.

I just signed up for this because my cousins were posting all of these awesome things they were getting for free. well so far every free thing I have asked to review has charged me on amazon when I put in the code. it puts the item free but charges me im guessing for shipping but it didn’t have a shipping charge. and how is it they are getting these amazing things and the only options I get are little tiny things. I think I found a total of 4 neat things the rest were pills or lame things. I dunno I just don’t think its really free if were I wouldn’t be getting charged . maybe you can shed some light on the situation im in cuz honestly I was just thinking about canceling everything. I just think my cousins are lieing and they are paying for the neater items jus to get people to join their groups so they can rank up. I dunno any help you can give me would be appreciated. the amazon help center doesn’t help at all all they do is email you back saying that they cant respond to your email and send u back to the same site u sent the email from the old run around is what I call it

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.

SnagShout launched recently and varies quite a bit from HonestFew. You still need to register for an account, however, and at that point you will gain access to a marketplace of items that are available from Amazon at discounted prices. The majority of the discounts offered are between 30 and 90 percent off, depending on the product, but you will even find a few items that are free. Items listed on the site run the gamut from toys to beauty products to general household items such as flashlights and bedroom sets. There’s a little bit of everything.

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

Amazon’s current TOS/rules say that, to post a review, they have to have purchased (from Amazon.com of course! LOL) at least $50 in merchandise (!) using their credit or debit card. So, gift cards, as some of the posters suggest, won’t work unless you happen to find those customers. New Amazon customers who want to post a review? Good luck!? Also, nobody mentions this, but keep in mind that, for every product you discount (say 50% or even 99%), remember that those reviewers, naturally (or let’s just say often) will come back and post those products on Amazon at a price way more competitively than yours. So you have to remember the yin and the yang: the upside is you might get a good review, the downside is you could easily lose 1 future sale for every 1 review. Yes, perhaps that’s a small price to pay. Sometimes, though, it can be hundreds of dollars, or more, lost per sale, for higher priced goods, imo.

3. The pot of gold. Visit the Amazon page for the first competitor that you identified in Step 2. Now, near the top left of the page, click on the link to the customer reviews. This will list every review the competing product has received. To make this process easy to track, click on the option that lets you sort the reviews by “Newest First.” Now you will see the list of sorted reviews with the Amazon name or “Real Name” of each reviewer. Welcome to the pot of gold.

I only write honest reviews, and I write them as if I spent my own money to buy the product (just as customers would.) I test all products thoroughly. I also only do reviews for products that interest me. That being said, most times I don’t get awful products because I research the product on Amazon before I say ‘yes.’ If it looks like junk, or other reviewers are panning it, then I say ‘no, thanks.’

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

Here is what you do: First go to Amazon and locate the gear you are interested in. Then write a quick message to the seller(s) letting them know you are going on a family hiking trip and that you would love to try out their product(s) in exchange for an honest and detailed review. To increase your chance, mention that you will also be open to doing a video review of the product(s). Reviews are everything for Amazon sellers, and some sellers won’t hesitate to give out a few items in exchange for detailed reviews.

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

We then lay out each product grouping in a side-by-side comparison that’s unique to Top Ten Reviews. Of course you can click on each product for a more in-depth look into what sets it apart from the others.

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.

What I hate is when the public assumes that you give something 5 stars you are a ‘FAKE.’ One thing that needs to be made clear is that a FAKE reviewer, as used in the lawsuits, involved people that were taking money and NEVER SEEING an item, just writing whatever the vendor told them to write! Realize not everyone has the same working definition of “FAKE.” Fake is not the same as compensated or commissioned.

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).

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

Each day, millions of consumers use Amazon’s websites to assist with their  purchasing decisions. In order to make those decisions more informed, Amazon publishes customer reviews of products and services available on Amazon.com. Amazon pioneered customer reviews 20 years ago and is now home to hundreds of millions of unique reviews. Reviews provide a forum for sharing authentic feedback about products and services – positive or negative. Amazon does not remove reviews because they are critical; Amazon believes all helpful information can inform its customers’ buying decisions. As long as they abide by Amazon’s Customer Review Guidelines, Amazon’s customers can review and rate products or services available on Amazon’s websites. Honest and unbiased reviews allow customers to trust that they can shop with confidence on Amazon.com; reviews also help fulfill Amazon’s mission to be Earth’s most customer-centric company. In short, Amazon takes the credibility of its customer reviews very seriously. 3.

, King County Case No. 15-2-08579-4 SEA (filed April 8, 2015). Most of those sites have since closed and Amazon has identified and taken action against sellers who used those sites to obtain fake reviews. Amazon is continuing those efforts with this lawsuit against the individuals who provide those fake reviews.

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

Before the ban on incentivized reviews, Amazon had tolerated reviews that were given in exchange for a free or discounted product — as long as the reviewers were upfront about that. But that system was gamed, according to a report earlier this year from Consumerist. Some reviewers posted hundreds of reviews in just a few weeks, which casts some doubt as to whether they were able to legitimately try out the products. 

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.

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.

You might have already incorporated coupons into your shopping routine, but you can probably find even more if you visit coupons.com. The site lets you search for items by categories, such as apparel, food and personal care, so you can make sure you get the best deals for items on your shopping list. 

Over 90% of Amazon buyers typically fail to leave feedback. In addition, customers with a negative experience are more motivated to leave feedback. What is your strategy for getting more feedback on Amazon?

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).

“Manufacturers aren’t necessarily trying to mask a terrible product,” Tarnoff said. “There are instances where a tactic could boost awareness of a product that people aren’t going to go out of their way to write a review of.”

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.

Most of the offers ask me if I am interested in the item first and then give me the info to get them. A few, however, just send out a lists of codes with a first come, first served approach. I can’t check my email non-stop, so I have missed out on all of those.

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.

” _receive products to review on amazon”

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).

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.

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).

The engine adjusts based on the prevailing patterns used by proven fake reviewers and their reviews, so while there is some base criteria, we’re able to use artificial intelligence to keep ahead of the imposters. Every fake reviewer has patterns. And the more data we collect via analyses completed, the more our engine is able to adapt and learn. The secret sauce is not only in the engine but the ability to run the data in the quickest amount of time possible; ensuring swift delivery of an accurate product.

I would like to understand better is Amazon allowing vendors to submit products to customers with a 90-100% off coupon in return for “un-biased” reviews legitimately? I am finding this practice very deceptive due to the fact that the sellers are misleading the consumers. Some feedback states it was offered in exchange for a discounted price, is this actually acceptable practice by Amazon standards?

The required registration is easy. Get to their website and scroll all the way down until you find a place to fill in your e-mail address and click join. Promotion codes will be sent via e-mail and your prize for your review is free OZ Naturals product. Update: This site no longer offer 100% free products in exchange for reviews, instead you get heavily discounted products. You can get (full-size) products for  $1.95. Thanks to Ann for the update.

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!

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

There is a separate forum for sellers. Go to top reviewer forums, or any other forum from the main amazon site (not seller side) – they’re all called “customer forums” for one thing, but you will see it is all customers.

Below, you will find tips on writing quality reviews, how to pitch to sellers plus a huge list of Amazon review sites that we’ve been using with great success. Join each one then watch your inbox for alerts on free offers and deals. The offers are usually very limited (the first 50, etc) so you’ll need to act fast if you want in on a specific item. We’d love for you to come back in few weeks and let us know about your experience with these companies!

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.

Although it’s not necessary, I recommend you ask for seller’s feedback on this email, and skip the product review for the following emails. Seller feedback differs from the product review on that the former is about you as a seller, and not specific to a product.

UPDATED! Looks like this site got a major design make-over. If you like “I Love to Review”, then I you may enjoy this site. Reason is that it appears they are taking a lot of notes from the way ILTR works, which is a good thing. Available for reviewers in USA.

Thanx Bakari- I’ve come across a few of your Amazon reviews and they were actually thoughtful and useful. I rely heavily on Amazon reviews for both my online and offline purchases. I think Amazon recognizes the mammoth tool they have in posting credible customer reviews. It’s a gem of a feature.

After registering for an account, you will begin receiving emails letting you know if there are new products available for review. If there is a product that you would like to review, you will need to grab a coupon code, purchase the item from Amazon at a super discounted rate and then post your review to Amazon within two weeks of receiving the product. Once your review is posted to Amazon, you also need to submit the review link to HonestFew. Those who do not review the items they are sent are removed from the program.

Since Amazon has basically outlawed the free-product-for-a-review practice, I actually found a different way to make product reviews work. On my site I did some research about the off-Amazon reviews I’ve done and how the product’s sales have increased as a result.

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

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.

I’ve been a Prime member for years and am a Top 500 reviewer with a 94% helpful rating (somewhere around reviewer #320-325). I have not been invited to the Vine program and have been offered less than a handful of free items over a number of years, despite having varied interests. This is a well written article, but getting free or heavily discounted stuff just isn’t that easy. I’ve had much better luck through BzzAgent and Smiley 360. Does anyone know of any other legitimate programs like those that would be worth signing up for?

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.

For high-end products worth at least $50, take a look at Giveaway Service. You do need to be approved by each individual seller before you can receive the discount. They also offer a lot of free giveaways too.

Both Ooi and Tommy Noonan, founder of ReviewMeta, pointed out that I was likely seeing the extreme end of the spectrum because I was looking for cheap electronic commodities, where reviews can be make or break for would-be sellers. But ultimately, this is an effect of Amazon’s crowded marketplace. Tommy Noonan says that many sellers may be forced to turn to ginning up reviews somehow. “They’re caught in a Catch-22. You have to get reviews to sell, but to get reviews you need to sell products,” says Noonan.

If you like getting paid for surveys, and are going to join only one site, I would recommend you choose Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!

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.

#5) I Love To Review is now Deal Hustl. You get redirected to that site. Page one asks for your first name and email. After you give them that, you get another page where you have to supply your full name and phone number. Seems scammy. Why do they need my phone number? Anyways, just wanted to give a heads up.

I myself don’t trust any of the” honest reviews” even if they are doing a honest review. Because there are far more fake “honest” reviews out there for me to look at and be tricked by them. I don’t know if those reviews are being honest in the first place. It’s like I have a lot of presents boxes. Inside *some* of them have actual gifts but *most* of the boxes contain bombs. I’m not risking my life for those presents (honest reviews), therefore I’m not going to get those presents. I’m going to get one that I know has a present inside (actual verified, paid full price reviews) because then I’m sure the results are not *as* skewed.

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

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.

(3) If you start the game and only get a black screen with a big blue cursor (sometimes I got music in the background, but I usually didn’t), this doesn’t appear to be a video compatibility issue, at least in our case. Once you get the Spore cursor on your screen, click command-Q. This will take you out of the game and give you a message that you must quit from inside the game. Click OK and then it takes you back to the game, but now you can see/hear everything. Odd, but it works – and it needs to be done every time you start the game.

There are no limits to how many deals you can claim each day after 2 pm EST. Each morning, you are only allowed to claim one deal to provide opportunities for other club members. Elite Deal Club sends out a daily email with 100-200 offers. Many people recommend Elite Deal Club for electronics and accessories including phone cases.

Some of these sites have a stupid point earning system, or only let you get 2 deals at a time. Don’t bother with this nonsense when there are other sites that will let you get 10, 20 or more deals at a time without having to earn points. And I let them know too how I feel about this, since they don’t tell you this until you have wasted your time enrolling with them. =(

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

I haven’t personally used this one, but I have seen other people talk about it. They have a one page website where you simply submit your email address and when they have products available for review you will get an email.

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

I 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?

I had contacted them directly to review several of their products so I don’t want to hurt the relationship but their request was just unethical. I explained that and their response was an apology and that they understand the ethical concerns. That was that.

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

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.

“how to review products on amazon amazon products review sites”

I’m active in a Christian writers website (faithwriters.com), and they have a program for their members called Free Reads for Reviews. In exchange for an honest review, the authors will send ebooks or PDF versions of their book. I’ve received reviews for my picture book and have also given some reviews for others. I truly enjoy doing that. I’ve even offered to point out some editing errors to certain authors if they are interested (l have done professional editing for nearly three years now). It blesses me to help authors receive reviews, and I feel an obligation to the prospective buyers to give honest feedback. Thanks to your article, I think I will update my profile and be more mindful of giving reviews on products I have purchased. I wish you the best of luck with your book and future endeavors.

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.)

They have a huge marketplace with a broad range of products from apparel, home decor, headphones, accessories for electronics, kitchen gear, knives, workout supplements and much more! Available for product testers in in the UK, USA, Ireland, France and Canada.

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

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.

Thanks for the update, James. You are correct. This is now against Amazon’s TOS, however, it’s still encouraged to leave a review. We highly recommend this as well, as sometimes sellers will only give discounts to shoppers who have strong seller profiles.

“amazon product review policy -how to get free products from amazon for a review”

Since I wrote my answer many things have changed. Over a year ago Amazon changed the reviewer rules. You no longer required to leave a review for a product you get for a reduced price. You can only leave about 4 reviews a month for things purchased at a reduced price. AMaxon rejects so many reviews especially bad reviews now. And because they can no longer require you to leave a review, the merchandise is no longer free and is not discounted as much. I was always a truthful reviewer. I told it like it was. But I stopped because it is no longer worth it.

I am in a program with Bestbuy. Bestbuy tech insider i think its called. I got invited back in February and I don’t know how. I typically do write some reviews on Bestbuy at times. I typically write a review if i like or hate the item enough to make my opinions known.

So how do you become one of Amazon’s most trusted reviewers? Amazon will reach out to you if they feel you are a good fit for the program but the company does offer some guidance on what it’s looking for in a Vine Voice.

This does’t mean your reviews have to be glowing, perfect epic novels expounding on the miracles this particular item did for you. They just have to be real and supportive. We’ll get into how to write review below.

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…

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

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

Despite all this, it’s usually pretty simple to keep getting deals as long you leave decent, honest reviews. I haven’t had a problem with them yet. Just be sure to snag deals quickly before they run out.

Thanks, Lynn, for all of your wonderful tips and replies! If you have any experience with some or all of the review sites listed here, we sure could benefit from your feedback and tips. Each page has a comments section for that review site.

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.

Got some word back on this from my UK reviewer contact. The gist of it is he would only ever recommend a site that he had used or someone he knows and trusts has used. Problem is that he, nor other reviewers he knows, are using one. They rely totally on Sellers reaching out to them via their Amazon profiles.

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!

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.

“amazon products review sites _amazon product review writing”

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

I 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!

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.

This is a great article. I never even knew that companies give away products in exchange for “honest” reviews. I discovered it because it was mentioned on several reviews for a product ( http://www.amazon.com/Sunbeam-SB022-Handheld-Sewing-Machine/dp/B005UFLE4G/ref=sr_1_4?s=gift-cards&ie=UTF8&qid=1438559732&sr=8-4&keywords=Handheld+sewing) that I was considering. Most people only gave it one star, but all of the reviewers who received the product gave it five stars. (There were between eight and ten reviews.)

Survey Junkie is one of the most popular sites to earn cash reviewing products and completing online surveys.  They match you with surveys and products that are right for you and your lifestyle, meaning more money for you to earn! 💰 Pays by Cash, PayPal and Gift Cards

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

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.

With products in hand, our reviewers begin the meticulous review process, which includes using most products just as you would. This ensures we’re able to identify and communicate each product’s strengths and weaknesses in a way that makes sense to you.

This site makes it easier for members by not requiring them to fill a discount code. But when such requirement is mandatory, click on the product of interest and ask for that discount code. There is an “agree” button to click after you are done.

This is due to a combination of factors – the fact that the vendor or seller has likely sought out those reviewers who are less critical, and the fact that reviewers may believe they would no longer have the opportunity to receive these sorts of offers, if they chose to say negative things.

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.

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).

Are there certain types of products that are more likely to have fake reviews than others? Seems like cheap electronics might be one. But I would be surprised if books have many fake reviews. Do you have any info on that?

Products are discounted (20-90% off), some are free. Able to filter by amount of discount. Giveaways include “clothes, jewelry, handbags, luggage”. And they have a great affiliate program that pays! Available for reviewers in USA.

Thank you for all the time and energy you spend on this. You really are thorough and honorable. I apologize if I missed this answer in your blog. I’ve read it several times, but sometimes things don’t click like I wish they would. Here is email.

First of all, signing up for these sites is an active approach—or subscription model—to testing product, since you are often the one reaching out to them. The passive approach—where companies reach out to you—has been covered in a previous post “How get free products to review on Amazon”.

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.

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.

From what I understand, companies are looking for buzz on new products, and, most of the time, some reviews are better than no reviews. There have been loads of great Vine items that no company would have been insecure about, desperate for a kind word. My guess is they are also hoping to make Vine reviewers loyal to their brand; just as Amazon probably hopes Vine reviewers will stay loyal to Amazon.

I’ve been a Prime member for years and am a Top 500 reviewer with a 94% helpful rating (somewhere around reviewer #320-325). I have not been invited to the Vine program and have been offered less than a handful of free items over a number of years, despite having varied interests. This is a well written article, but getting free or heavily discounted stuff just isn’t that easy. I’ve had much better luck through BzzAgent and Smiley 360. Does anyone know of any other legitimate programs like those that would be worth signing up for?

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).

I’ve tested a lot of products over the years that I don’t remember how many! LOL! I’ve tested electronics, toys, food products, beauty products, household products, adult products, websites, and so much more!

I had contacted them directly to review several of their products so I don’t want to hurt the relationship but their request was just unethical. I explained that and their response was an apology and that they understand the ethical concerns. That was that.

If you’re looking to test big ticket items like vacuum cleaners, game systems, electronics and more, this panel is for you!  Also, you can sign up to be a paid mystery shopper, and dine in restaurants.  In return, you must provide them with a review. 💰 Pays by Free Merchandise

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.

Looking to write an article proposing Amazon drop the votes and reviewer ranking to combat this. There is no benefit to either, especially while this kind of behavior is going on. Would be better to rank reviewers in each category of products based on how many reviews they wrote for “Verified purchases”. This would kill the cottage industry of fake reviews and fake voting, and also make the ‘top reviewer game’ to suppress others moot.

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!!

We use these various revenue streams not only to support our staff, but also to purchase products for review, to outfit our offices with the best tools and equipment for testing – including the construction of our new 5,000-square-foot Purch Lab – and to continue to expand the number of products and services we rank and review.

“how to get free amazon products in exchange for reviews _get paid to review products amazon”

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:

Requesting and publishing customer reviews in an essential, ongoing part of doing business online. Using the steps listed here can convince shoppers that you’re trustworthy and have great products. They can also inspire other customers to share their thoughts about the products you sell.

I have had a few of the companies requesting a video review. I have been unable to upload a video. Can someone show me how to do this. The information I found on Amazon is old and I can not follow the same steps to post a video review. Thanks

They have shorter surveys, meaning it’ll take less time to complete them.  They offer product testing, online surveys, as well as business and IT type of surveys, earn money taking surveys on your phone, and surveys for teens.  You get paid in so many different ways with them.  💰 Pays by Cash via Check, PayPal, Visa Prepaid Cards, Merchandise, Gift Cards, and Movie Vouchers

This is due to a combination of factors – the fact that the vendor or seller has likely sought out those reviewers who are less critical, and the fact that reviewers may believe they would no longer have the opportunity to receive these sorts of offers, if they chose to say negative things.

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.

Consequently, while one should loathe the organzations that are, in this way, poisoning one of the few honest consumer-oriented platforms out there, it’s perhaps beside the point to direct vituperation towards VV. This seems to be someone formerly engaged not in esurience but in survival, and who is now performing a public service by disclosing her experiences in an open forum. The more information we have, the better. VV and others like her should be encouraged to describe their experiences, not chided, it seems to me, for past moral lapses made while under economic distress. Or, at least, not when clearly trying to make amends.

1. Create a tracking system. You will need to identify and track to whom you are going to send your book or product. Not everyone that you contact will respond (I found about 50 percent of the people do), and of the people who respond about 50 percent of them will ultimately do a review. That means about one out of four people you identify will post a review (based on my experience), which is not too shabby. To track everyone, I use a simple Google Spreadsheet.

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

I’ve left hundreds of reviews for free or discounted products. All are honest, and most are extremely thorough. No politician is watching my back, and it is because of that fact that I boldly tell people what I think. The funny thing is that for me, the bias tends to go in the opposite direction. I am so used to getting things for free or heavily discounted, that when I look at the full prices I nearly always think they’re asking too much and that the product isn’t worth that. I’ve had to make it a habit to comparison shop for items I review so that I have some realistic idea of how much that type of item costs and don’t give low star ratings for something based on my unrealistic expectations. I do consider the full selling price, because I only review items I’m interested in buying or using even if I were paying full price. Just because your reaction would be to like something better because it is free doesn’t mean everyone’s is. I’m more likely to think it’s junk, because if it isn’t, why would it be free? I’m always thrilled to write a five-star review, because I almost never expect that I’ll get to do it.

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.

How much would these companies ding you if you have a few unsavory reviews (which essentially break a bunch of your rules) I doubt there’s anything too obscene and i never used any outright foul language or anything. Would it just make more sense to get a new user name?

Don’t want fake reviews? Ask only real customers then. When you let anyone do it you will end with a bunch of fakes and 21% of reviews made by people who never bought or tried that product! (Source http://bit.ly/reviews-falsos),

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

We lay-folk have long known that scientists use common objects for strange reasons – see NASA researchers sending rubber ducks into a glacier to track ocean currents, or environmental scientists floating tampons down streams to find pollution.

Each day we receive offers of products that are seeking reviews online.  Companies, entrepreneurs, public relations firms, publicists, and marketing agencies want to give free samples, “review copies”, or discounts on their products to encourage positive “word of mouth” comments, shares, ratings, and online reviews.

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.

I have a question about less than glorious reviews. If you are reviewing a product that doesn’t quite measure up or doesn’t do what it claims do you go ahead and post your reviews professionally with pro’s and constructive criticism and suggestions or do you contact them first?

Message: In this email, you focus on making sure the customer got the product in good condition while looking to see they don’t have any problems with it. This can help you reduce the number of negative reviews you get for your products.

There are no hard stats. Review writing is not a science. It’s all subjective, both Vine reviews and non-Vine reviews. Sure, some judge less harshly because they got the items for free, just as some judge more harshly because they want to prove their opinion was not bought.

Another problem in not having any control over who takes the coupons is that not all reviewers are sane people. My products are good. Less than 5% of the reviews have 3 stars. All the rest are 4 or 5 stars. But someone gave me a 2 star. When I looked at this person’s other reviews, I saw that she habitually gives bad reviews to products that generally receive good reviews. She is obviously a disgruntled or maybe careless/thoughtless/jealous/nasty individual. Had I seen her track record I would never have approved her to receive my product.

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

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