“review products for free on amazon |how do i get products to review on amazon”

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.

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. 

More and more all the time, it seems. Most recently, Amazon unveiled new tricks that let you call and message other Alexa users, along with new software tools that’ll let Alexa control Amazon Fire TV setups, as well as select smart TVs.

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.

EtekCity has great products that are always offered for free. Yet their website only promotes product from one brand: EtekCitizen. In exchange for leaving your review, they are giving you their products for free that they put up on Amazon.

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

I live in Canada, read many reviews and have written a few for different products. If I had been aware of the Vine program (and was eligible) I would have written reviews for all the items I own that are available on 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.

Here the membership requirement is more stringent in the sense that you should have an active buying habit within Amazon.com, and have a credible history of reviews. The main products are often the new products under promotion. And you get to bring them home free for your review.

As for the coupon codes saving you less than the stated amount…that is flat out bad business. I have never run into that problem, BUT I have had the problem of not reading the email fully before I entered the code. In a couple cases, the email sort of implied it would be free, but never really said it was a 100% off coupon code. In those cases, I ALWAYS reply the Seller and tell them that they need be upfront and crystal clear about the actual discount the code is applying. I suggest you all do the so we can stamp out the vague emails and bad practices going on.

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.

Other categories, like mobile, change quite a bit as new phones seem to be announced all the time, usually just a few days after you’ve already upgraded. You can bet we will update those product groups faster and more frequently.

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.

Due to a massive amount of fake reviews, I think it is now safe to say that with Amazon, no 5 star reviews can be trusted and likely most all 4 star reviews either. One star reviews are the only ones worth reading.

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.

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

Was wondering if Vipon (formerly amz review trader) is dead? If you look at their Facebook page a lot of shoppers are not getting any activity, either approvals or denials. I’m one of them. Since there is no way to contact company personnel, we have no way of knowing if amz is no longer doing business (there are still new products being displayed) or if they are having technical difficulties. Either way, very annoying.

I like “Loot Hoot” all the deals have working promo codes and there is no seller approval like trader. I get coupons for the deals I want w/ no probs. No need to give the amazon profile url or credit cards.

I would love to participate in you review program of merchandise. I am a federal retiree and can go out of my way when reviewing merchandise. I am aware of your rules and honesty is a strong word in my vocabulary. If I am picked for this program, I will not let you down.

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.

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.

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.

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).

People are going to complain, and sometimes about strange or silly things. While these reviews bring down the average, a higher ratio of positive reviews should balance things out. Publishing all levels of reviews shows that you keep it real.

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

Also, keep in mind that Amazon can change the price. So, if the Seller is doing a 99% off coupon code and they think it will work out to be .99-cents or a dollar, Amazon can raise the price and the 99% off can work out to be over a dollar now. It shouldn’t be a lot more though.

Thanks so much for this info! I’ve been wanting to do reviews and either get paid or keep the product and didn’t know about who to contact or how and by giving quite a few links above, you’ve made it so much easier!

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

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

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.’

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

Paid Reviews – We do not permit reviews or votes on the helpfulness of reviews that are posted in exchange for compensation of any kind, including payment (whether in the form of money or gift certificates), bonus content, entry to a contest or sweepstakes, discounts on future purchases, extra product, or other gifts.

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.

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

“amazon product review writing |amazon product review request email template”

It is my understanding that companies offer their items in exchange for reviews because the more reviews you have – good or bad – the higher your product will appear in Amazon search results and this can be important if you really want to get your items in front of shoppers. For instance, I just did a search for “pink shoes” and received 152,080 results. Most people aren’t going to take the time to scan all of those results, so appearing on the first few pages will help the company sell more product.

Personally I filter out the Vine reviews, quite frankly I don’t care about the opinion of someone who got it for free. I want someone with skin in the game to tell me if it is worth the price they paid.

Joining Betabound gives you access to products (mobile phones, home theater, wearables, etc.) before they go to market so that you can test them and give feedback about your experience. Available worldwide (though USA is likely more popular to get products.)

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

Take a look through the list of Amazon’s top reviewers, and create a spreadsheet where you can start logging info about your potential reviewers. You are looking for reviewers who have already reviewed books in your genre, and once you’ve found them, any additional information you can grab about them, including email addresses, and any personal interests.

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.

ExpoTv.com is a review site where reviews are not written, but rather filmed. You simply check their marketplace to find products to review and record yourself talking about the product. You can review any kind of product you like, except prescription medicine, firearms, and tobacco products. You can also earn points by taking surveys and referring friends.

4.      Reach out to users who reviewed similar products. You can find users who have reviewed products similar to yours (even your competitor’s products) by visiting your product page, going to “Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought” and “Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed.” These are your competitors, and you could do well simply taking note of them and reading their reviews (paying attention to what they do well and what they fail at), and even checking out their website. 

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

We currently fully support the US and UK marketplaces with promotions and email campaigns. Jump Send email campaigns are also available for Canada, Mexico, Germany, France, Spain and Italy. More marketplaces are coming soon, we will notify all members when they are available.

Amazon converted the raw emails into a “Send an Email” link, and it was indeed broken for a while. I contacted Amazon Help via Twitter and they sent it on to the development team there. Just tried it and it looks like it works for me now. Are you not seeing the “Send an Email” link on the profile pages on the left side under the profile image?

UPDATED! Looks like this site got a major design make-over. If you like “I Love to Review”, then I think 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.

More than 39,400 reviews have been published through our service until March 2016. We help brands discover and connect with thousands of influential people who blog and share content via social networks.

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

Personally, my favorite reviewers are the Vine reviewers that are also top reviewers. I love it when they mention other products in the same category they have used, and state what the advantages are. It’s nice to have a group of people out there that have tried 6 different brands of (vacuum, printer, slowcooker, router, dishtowel) in 2 years and can help you make a good decision or answer questions on items that are just hitting the market.

I have not seen anything that indicates that it’s available in France. I’ve seen some in Canada say they were invited, but Amazon doesn’t appear to provide any information on which countries the program operates in.

the reviewers who get the product at a discount or for free have to say that in the review so just look at teh review and see if it is a discounted purchase if you don’t like them but no one is paid for a review. Amazon doesn’t allow anyone to pay for a review all they can do is either give a product for free or at a reduced price.

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

Marketplace Sharing for Amazon allows consumers to share their review to Amazon, providing relevant content to future purchasers, no matter where they shop. You’ll not only grow review coverage on but also increase sales on all channels.

The first time you write a review, you earn $3 for it. After that, each review earns you $1.00. Reviews are rated based on their quality. There is a quality review threshold, which if your review score reaches that point, you earn an additional $10.00 on the top of what you already earn for the your reviews. The minimum required for payout is $10.00. Carrotreviews has one set back and that is the fact that you are restricted to writing only 5 reviews a month. Although this rules changes from time to time.

Of course I would not be getting paid to review products, and certainly this big player’s lawyers have determined that this is not in violation of the this big player’s Amazon reviews for free/discounted products contract terms. So participating in this favorable or unfavorable for the review community?

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.”

Amazon (AMZN) this week said it will ban “incentivized” reviews, or product ratings that are provided in exchange for a free or discounted product. The ban comes after the company already took steps against phony paid reviews, with mixed results. Even after legal action from Amazon last year, fake reviews continued to proliferate on the site.

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.

I’m inclined to agree with you. Fakespot gave the Amazon page below an “A”, but all 17 reviews are “Verified purchases” by common named people giving generic praise and all but one have 5 stars – most are written within weeks of each other. Now, this product may very well be that good, but doesn’t any of that strike someone as pretty suspicious?

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.

On the other hand, my boss has a problem with fake BAD reviews. Since she’s a non-fiction “exposé” author, you can only imagine the feathers she’s ruffled. Those fake bad reviews are easy spot [Amazon once had to scrub 46 obviously fake bad reviews from the book listing– which prompted a change to their entire review policy], if you bother to click on the reviewer handles, but how many potential buyers actually take the time to do that?

Also, keep in mind that Amazon can change the price. So, if the Seller is doing a 99% off coupon code and they think it will work out to be .99-cents or a dollar, Amazon can raise the price and the 99% off can work out to be over a dollar now. It shouldn’t be a lot more though.

Better Discounts isn’t exclusive to Amazon products, but, you can be emailed promotional codes for Amazon when they become available. This can also be a good way to find discounts to other online retailers as well since not every good online deal is always found at Amazon.

This review program is part of the Anker Technology brand of electronics for electronics, phone accessories like battery backups, screen protectors, chargers, and audio/speakers. There are even products like lamps and vacuums, keyboards and mice, and laptop batteries. Available in: USA, Germany, Canada, UK, France, Spain, Italy

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.

Last May I bought the SB6141. It had 4 stars on Comcast’s old device list and was the # 1 pick here. Its been flawless until about 7 weeks ago. Latency has increased and speeds have slowed down. I just spoke with Comcast they say they’ve EOL’d support for this modem (see here: http://i.imgur.com/8fzh4Gc.png).

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

I have joined and had success with a few of these except EDC Elite Deal Club,, things were ok then I was asked to review products I had not asked for, the customer service was beyond dire. They are now asking for your financial information,,, be aware people- you pay via Amazon not these sites,,, Elite Deal Club has no reason to demand you personal financial information- leave well alone.

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

Do you think this is okay for me to say? I don’t want to blow my first shot at a review, but I don’t want to commit to misleading anyone either. Fortunately, the product has a bunch of good reviews as of now, and it’s inexpensive. So for the price, I’m sure there will be redeeming qualities. But still….

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

I just read through the squidoo article. Now that I think of it… I did do a survey on BzzAgent that asked me about my child playing with Transformers but I didn’t qualify because he’s a one year old. I also did 2 surveys on Smiley360 one of which asked if I had a dog and I don’t so I didn’t qualify so I think that was the Greenies test product and the other one at the end said I qualified to test Oxyclean 2in1 Stain Fighter. I think I’m starting to understand how these panels work! I’ll just continue to fill out my surveys!

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.

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.

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

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.

How do I know they are fake you ask… Easy, look at the other products that the person has reviewed, there usually are not any, but when they are they are all from the same seller. Another way is that someone will have like 50 reviews in a 2 day period, but then no other positive reviews, ever. Another way, You will see a reviewer review different products with different descriptions about who they are (e.g., “I am a professional plumber so…”, “As a professional photographer, I think…”, “As a large man, I found…”, “As a single mother…” all from the same person). Another indicator is when they use the same broken English in multiple 5 star reviews or misspell the exact same word the same way under different names (no verified purchase, of course). Of course, none of these are 100% guarantees they are fake, but once you start looking for them, it becomes obvious.

We’ve already shared some great ways to make money, but this nifty guide will teach you everything you need to know about making money specifically from product testing. From assessing the benefits to finding the best (and legit) sites, we’ve got the essentials covered! Read on…

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

Chattykathy16, I’m not sure how much Amazon is still promoting the Vine Review program. I haven’t received a listening of books from them in over five months. I do know that in order to be considered for the program that you have to write lots of product reviews for the site.

The purpose of the Amzrc Amazon product review service is not just to make profit. The concept was inspired by the desire to help people, who need their first push to success. We know, that buyers can be reluctant to buy products from a new seller, this is why they need some encouragement. We are ready to provide it!

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.

Good points Anupam, faking testimonials are never worth it! Even if you have to give away a couple products to bloggers friends, it’s worth it to get real reviews. In addition to sounding genuine, they could give you invaluable feedback for perfecting your product and even improving your shopping experience.

As for your 80 product reviews…don’t sweat it! I have heard of 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.

But most important, receiving something for free or nearly free can greatly affect one’s opinions. You might notice how few of the reviews through Vine and similar programs are negative or even critical. This isn’t a case of reviewers intentionally being dishonest, but rather the result of unconscious positive bias. Not paying for an item can make difficulties with that item seem less irritating.

“how do i get amazon products to review +amazon product review request template”

Personally I filter out the Vine reviews, quite frankly I don’t care about the opinion of someone who got it for free. I want someone with skin in the game to tell me if it is worth the price they paid.

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

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.

I love the sites that you have put up. I wanted to know is it okay to post a link on your blog. This link is for earning giftcards for over 50 places, such as Amazon, ebay, Kmart, walmart, playstation network, burger king,and many many others. It is very easy to earn points by watching short vidoes, taking 10 question surveys, regular surveys,playing games and many other things. I have been on the site for 6 months and I have earned 600.00. in different gift cards and I have even requested checks. You can even get 100 points and get a 1.00 giftcard. The reason that I am asking about posting a link is because honestly when i refer someone I get more points. I wanted to make sure that it was ok. Also if this is not okay I will just post the name of the site so that everyone can use it.Your giftcards are instant so you do not have to wait for them in the mail.

My son said he loves the game, but the software is awful. It took us hours to get around the install problems and then we found out the key code had already been used! Based on the reviews and forum comments, I’m not even bothering with EA to try and resolve this issue. Our best guess is that someone has figured out their key algorithm and the codes are being activated illegally. So, even though we bought a brand new game, the verification key is useless and my son can only play a limited portion of the game.

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

Boris,Amazon states that “Other forms of compensation, including gift cards to purchase the product, product refunds, and review swaps, are not allowed.”That certaily suggests that using a coupon code to give a free product away for review is really close to the line. That’s understandable, because when you use a 100% off coupon code, this still registers as a “verified purchase” within amazon’s system. Obviously that will inflate your sales data and also have a positive affect on your product’s ranking. So you can see why this is a practice that Amazon probably will not like. Many merchants use it precisely because of the way that is does help their products’s ranking, but at some point when the abuse becomes too great, Amazon will no doubt step in and start penalizing those who do it. The risk now is that this kind of activity does leave an easily traceable “footprint” in amazon’s purchase records, and you quite possibly have those reviews stripped out of your listing, or worse, your account suspended or banned for doing it. If you want reviews in exchange for a free copy of the product, then the safe route is to create a multi-channel fullfilment order and have the product sent directly, free of charge, to the reviewer. Megan …In the article, you mention “Amazon is doing their best to combat fake reviews, but honestly, they aren’t doing a ton.”how do you know this? What are you basing this assertion on? Do you have some kind of insider information into Amazon’s policies and development activities?  If they are not doing much to combat this issue, I’d really like to know what exactly they ARE doing and how you know about it.Thanks!Michael    

One of the major factors that determine how high your website ranks on search engines like Google is the number of other websites that link back to your website. Getting bloggers or other websites to review your products is a great way to “build links” back to your website. And of course the benefit of this is that it will increase the amount of free traffic your website receives from search engines.

No. We welcome honest opinion about the product – positive or negative. Of course Vine reviews must conform to all our posting guidelines. Customers can vote on the helpfulness of Vine reviews just like they can for any other review.

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

When it comes to purchasing a product or a services, reviews play a big role in the decision making of many consumers. That’s why, many companies spend a lot of money to understand what costumers think of their products and how they would like it to be improved. It’s almost like paid surveys and mystery shopping in a sense. It works in a simple way – you get paid to share your experience with others about a product or a service that you have used in the past.

In most cases, on your Profile you will see your user name, items you have favorited, recent activity (images and reviews), and a section on the left showing interests and some ranking information. The section on the left and your recent reviews are likely the most important part of this page (see image of my profile above.) Let’s get into why…

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

There are two types of review – those for specific products and those for your ecommerce shop/service overall. We use the BigCommerce built-in reviews for products and ShopperApproved for our overall service. This latter service was chosen because it’s entirely independent of us and helps with our Google AdWords visibility (we get a star rating under our ads). It’s also very good value compared with other services.

No. Starting on May 6, product reviews will be available for those listings that are eligible. eBay sellers who previously opted out of product reviews on My eBay will will be opted back into product reviews. If you opted out and want to opt in to take advantage of the benefits of product reviews before May 6 you can do so on My eBay.

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.

Hi Tristan, I find that the email address in the profile has been missing on Amazon recently. And I think it not just happened to me. So the most effient way becomes no way and amazon sellers like me don’t have other chances to contact reviewers via email. That is very anoying. Do you guys have came up with some brilliant ideas to solve this problem? I saw someone writing his email address in “About me” as name(at)gmail(dot)com and it is visiable.

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

I have not seen anything that indicates that it’s available in France. I’ve seen some in Canada say they were invited, but Amazon doesn’t appear to provide any information on which countries the program operates in.

Looks like he was actually wiped from amazon at some point. It is happening more. They can wipe without warning or reason and probably assume he violated something. Not giving the specific reason does not allow the person the ability to properly defend and appeal. They have plenty of customers. .they could care less. They violate rules themselves. In turn they are hurting the reviewers, sellers, and finally themselves. They need to revamp their method of plan, control, and rules. The rules are vague.

Hey Dot! I’m glad you got into Pinecone because they’re one of the best product testing companies and the payment is fast! And you’re right, companies mainly look for moms with small children to test their products but don’t give up you’ll have chances to test products too.

The email goes on to say, “…We want to incentivize you even more though, so we are offering an affiliate program that pays out to you 100% of ALL the money that any seller spends with our platform during the first month. No catch, no tricks.

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

As it turned out, I LOVED the book and in my opinion it held a great deal of crossover appeal and whether or not you liked sci-fi, you should read this book. So, in my review title, that was generally what I typed. I kept it short of course, but got the point across. And in the body, before going into specifics, I reiterated a bit about me as a reader, the type of book I normally enjoy to read (including a few examples of recent favorites) and gave the book a comparison and a description of what I’d compare it to that wasn’t considered sci-fi.

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.

Manufacturers use different techniques to solicit reviews. They may offer free products, or discounted products, that reviewers can get using a code on Amazon. I think the point of the discount is that, perhaps, free products don’t show as Verified Purchases.

“free products to review on amazon _best amazon review products”

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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.

While soliciting reviews can seem to take a lot of time and effort, their value cannot be underestimated. Reviews immediately add credibility to your book, communicating to potential customers that it is a worthy read. They also improve your book’s ranking when consumers are searching on Amazon, which is the primary reason to stay committed to getting reviews. If you’re able to move your title into earlier search pages, you’ll be discovered by readers who wouldn’t otherwise find you. And that, hopefully, will translate into more book sales.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

In a blog post, Amazon said it’s improving its review ratings by introducing an algorithm that gives weight to reviews that are more helpful. It said it’s also suspending, banning or suing “thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews.” 

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.)

Hi! I want to thank you for all of your information! I just stumbled across all of this a couple days ago, and it’s really exciting to know I can do something and feel worthwhile since I have chronic pain and am not able to work in the traditional sense. This is work! As is raising kids!

Paid Reviews – We do not permit reviews or votes on the helpfulness of reviews that are posted in exchange for compensation of any kind, including payment (whether in the form of money or gift certificates), bonus content, entry to a contest or sweepstakes, discounts on future purchases, extra product, or other gifts. The sole exception to this rule is when a free or discounted copy of a physical product is provided to a customer up front. Source (Dec 16, 2016): Amazon Customer Review Creation Guidelines

Yes, sorting by “verified purchase” is a must these days. I once bought a kitchen knife that had an obvious flaw. I was dumbfounded since it had all these glowing 5-star reviews. How can that be? Turned out NOBODY had actually purchased the knife, just me. Lesson learned.

These are the same as paid reviews… they payment is the product (for free or deep discount). You said it yourself in your other comment, you wouldn’t have paid full price. Even if something works well, that doesn’t mean it is worth full price; you can’t review that part of it, which is a very big part of the purchase evaluation (which reviews help with). Just because you used the product, doesn’t mean you are reviewing the same experience as a full-price purchaser.

I do NOT contact companies before I write a bad review about a product. There was one time where I wrote a bad review about some earphones and the company sent out another set because they thought mine were faulty. Second set worked better, so I amended my review. I also once got asked to take down a bad review stating ‘I did not know how to use the product’ (they were ear buds.) I do not take do reviews, only amend them.

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

I hope you did what Tristan said! That was some good advice lol. I had a similar situation recently. My husband generally has a beard. He’ll shave in the summer sometimes, but he has facial hair. I was asked to review some “beard oil”, and jumped on it. I left the house to run errands, and called the hubby several hours later to chat. I mentioned to him over the phone that I’d gotten the beard oil for him to try, and he made a kind of strangled sound. He’d decided to shave. We laughed, and planned to just return the item at our own cost because crap happens. But I got lucky and have a teenager trying to grow out his facial hair. I also checked other ways to use the oil, and tried it as a moisturizer on my own skin.

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

Other categories, like mobile, change quite a bit as new phones seem to be announced all the time, usually just a few days after you’ve already upgraded. You can bet we will update those product groups faster and more frequently.

Paid Reviews – We do not permit reviews or votes on the helpfulness of reviews that are posted in exchange for compensation of any kind, including payment (whether in the form of money or gift certificates), bonus content, entry to a contest or sweepstakes, discounts on future purchases, extra product, or other gifts.

Research shows that users like to read reviews about both new and used items. We require reviewers to indicate the condition of items they are reviewing to ensure that the most relevant information is provided to buyers. We will continue to evaluate how buyers use the information and will make adjustments when appropriate.

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!

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

Unlike Amazon’s in-house Vine review program that is invitation only, anybody can apply to become a shopper on these Amazon review sites. If you like trying out products and leaving honest feedback, you are an excellent candidate for reviewing products sold on Amazon.

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

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

Amazon Vine is an invitation-only program. Vine Voices are selected based on several criteria, but primarily on the helpfulness of their reviews as judged by all other customers and by their demonstrated interest in the types of products that are featured in the program. Customers who consistently write helpful reviews and develop a reputation for expertise in specific product categories are most likely to be invited into the program.

RateItAll is one of the most popular review sites. You can write reviews about everything, and I mean everything! Toys, Local bars and restaurants, games, products, people, places, books, music, movies, celebrities, dogs, poems, art, games, travel…. RateItAll is very unique compere to other review sites, in a sense that reviews are written in the form of bullet pointed lists about a topic, where everyone can share their opinions about it. You get 50% of the revenue generated by ads displayed nest to your reviews.

This is a relaunch of AMZ Review Trader under a new name. They have a huge marketplace of discounted products. Typically a LOT of products per email with even more on the site. Available to reviewers in USA, UK, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico.

“I’ve been using AMZRC for the last couple of months and initially I wasn’t sure of what results I would get because there’s so much competition out there with similar review websites. However I was pleasantly surprised! Initially I got a great deal as a seller because I signed up for the annual membership which allows me to post deals for my Amazon products every 3 days. I had amazing results such as an increase in sales as well as loads of genuine 5 star reviews for my product. This worked wonders for my Amazon listing and my product was rated top 20 in its category. Thanks to the team at AMZRC you guys have great support and I’m loving the new website.”

Didn’t link to the FS analysis because I hadn’t checked it out myself, and any interested reader could find on their own as easily as you or I. Nor did I link to the product because I had no intention of shilling it here. But if you’d like to check it out for yourself: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N6DC2ZE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Again, dunno how it compares to the Anker reviewed here earlier, they both have the the same specs regarding battery life and such. Seems like ones I bought might be less bulky/lighter, not sure.

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?

I got a message that my review was removed because they think I knew the seller and my review was biased. Um, no and no. This is what it said, ““Amazon does not permit reviews from customers whose relationship to the product or seller may be perceived as biased”. So I guess they won’t be picking me as a Vine Reviewer. I do have 50 helpful votes and over 100 reviews.

I am sorry that you have had bad luck with amazonreviewtrader, however I love using it! I have gotten so many good discounts/free items from the site. I have 6 things on there way right now actually to review! I have found that sometimes you do have to wait a bit longer than you would like to be able to review an item but if you request a bunch of things that you wish to review, you will most likely get chosen to do so. The ones that are completely free sometimes take a little longer than the ones you have to pay a little for. Hope this helps 🙂

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

To recommend your products, I need to know you can appreciate the fact ethically I have limits I’m not willing to break, regardless of the fact Amazon has specifically banned this practice and my doing what you ask could get us both in trouble. Honestly, I have a feeling that eventually, someone you send this to will report you.

Hi Tristan, i’ve just read your blog and there are so many helpful hints. I’ve been reviewing product now for just under a month and i’m absolutely loving it. I have products turn up on my doorstep that I would not normally look at, it’s great. I can only find 2 sites in the UK for product testing, are you able to advise me of any other sites?

What explains that dynamic? It boils down to the fact that there are more than 2 million third-party merchants selling through Amazon, all eager to catch the eyes of online shoppers. A higher rating can pull in more business.

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

The email goes on to say, “…We want to incentivize you even more though, so we are offering an affiliate program that pays out to you 100% of ALL the money that any seller spends with our platform during the first month. No catch, no tricks.

I’ve often wondered about on site reviews and questioned how honest they are. As an Amazon customer for many years, I’ve purchased many different items, admittedly, some good, some great, some so so and then there were ….

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.

You need to have a blog to be able to use this site to get paid to review. Basically, their advertisers choose which specific blogs to review their product, service, website or what have you. After submitting your blog and being approved, your blog info will be available to advertisers who might want a reviews of their products on your blog. You can get paid in few different ways.You can get paid by Check with a $25 minim, Reviewme Prepaid MasterCard with a $20 minimum and pay pal with no minimum.

“how to receive products for review amazon |how to review amazon products for free”

Hi Tristan! As others have said – THANK YOU for doing this article/blog, especially given the time you have invested in it, when you could have been reviewing a a few freebies during this time instead! 😉

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

Amzreviewtrader is the best! been doing it for two weeks now and I have received 26 product. The best way to get good products is to start by request the kindle book because since they are already listed free on amazon most of the time you almost always get accepted and once you have done 10 or so of those you will be more likely to get accepted for other products. I usually keep my request over 100 or so because you will on get accepted for 10 or so out of those. Also there is a lot of junk on there so it usually takes me about an hour or two a day to sort through all the actually free products and request the stuff I actually want. goodluck!

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

Joe, this isn’t true. I have been selling for a month and have had three 5 star reviews, by people I work with, that all bought from their own account, from a different IP address, and the reviews went up for a week or so, then they all have been taken down. The reviews were up for a few days, then they disappeared. How does this happen? On top of that, I sold about 50 products and started moving up the ranking, then I got a 1 star review from someone that didn’t even buy the product, and it has been there for three weeks. Now my product is not selling. Apparently the bad review worked. Also, why didn’t any of the 50 people that bought my product review it? Amazon needs to make it easier for new people to sell products. The top sellers could get a couple people to give their competition bad reviews, and “goodbye competition.”

It is my understanding that companies offer their items in exchange for reviews because the more reviews you have – good or bad – the higher your product will appear in Amazon search results and this can be important if you really want to get your items in front of shoppers. For instance, I just did a search for “pink shoes” and received 152,080 results. Most people aren’t going to take the time to scan all of those results, so appearing on the first few pages will help the company sell more product.

“how to get free review products on amazon -amazon product review sugar free gummy bears”

Barbara, I just published a post with a list of 40 websites where you can get Amazon products for free (or highly discounted) in exchange for leaving revives on Amazon. Here is the link: http://moneypantry.com/amazon-review-sites/

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.

Once you’ve got your list, go back to the boilerplate form letter you were using for the Amazon top reviewers. Tweak it a little, making sure to reference things spotted on the blogger’s pages, and adding any commonalities. Email them (if contact info is available on their site) or use the contact form on their site if available.

We Amazon sellers have all been through the end of incentivized reviews together and shared our thoughts, worries and experiences during this change which happened back in October 2016. I have already shared some of my thoughts on the matter, and been open about the fact that change is good, and that we should embrace the opportunity this brings to business owners. 

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.

This brand-run super user program is for those of you interested in product testing lighting (rope lights, desk lights, LEDs, floodlights, flashlights/torches, curtain lights and more.) Available for product testers in USA, UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Canada, France, Spain, Japan.

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

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.

Last May I bought the SB6141. It had 4 stars on Comcast’s old device list and was the # 1 pick here. Its been flawless until about 7 weeks ago. Latency has increased and speeds have slowed down. I just spoke with Comcast they say they’ve EOL’d support for this modem (see here: http://i.imgur.com/8fzh4Gc.png).

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

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.

Amazon the raw emails into a “Send an Email” link, and it was indeed broken for a while. I contacted Amazon Help via Twitter and they sent it on to the development team there. Just tried it and it looks like it works for me now. Are you not seeing the “Send an Email” link on the profile pages on the left side under the profile image?

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

1) Terrible DRM. You can only install the game 5 times. This isn’t a problem unless you share the games, have multiple computers, or upgrade your computer frequently. There is evidently a way to “retrieve” installs, however, I have not used it and cannot give first hand experience. I have heard that the retrieval system does not work particularly well for Mac computers.

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

You will find yourself leaning towards buying from Amazon more often than other sites if they have an item available, just because the shipping is free, and you get it it two days…I sure do! Wouldn’t work at all if prices weren’t competitive, though.

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

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

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!

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

I don’t think there is much you can do, Tracy. Keep in mind that when they do these product testing runs, they are looking for specifics demographic (basically their main consumers), so based on the info you provided, you may not be a good fit for any of their tests so far. That’s why I recommend joining multiple sites so you can increase your odds.

The email goes on to say, “…We want to incentivize you even more though, so we are offering an affiliate program that pays out to you 100% of ALL the money that any seller spends with our platform during the first month. No catch, no tricks.

“receive free products for amazon reviews _paid to review amazon products”

EtekCity has great products that are always offered for free. Yet their website only promotes product from one brand: EtekCitizen. In exchange for leaving your review, they are giving you their products for free that they put up on Amazon.

@Wirecutter/LAUREN DRAGAN – you might have been able to write a more persuasive piece if you dug around a bit before you wrote the piece. Seems like you could have done a bit more digging to really get some interest in all these fake damn reviews. However, I believe wirecutter benefits tremendously from links/fwd to amazon products – so you might be biting the hand that feeds you.

Savvy shoppers almost never purchase a product without knowing how it’s going to work for them. They read the good, the not-so-good, and the downright ugly to make the all-important decision: should I pull out my wallet and take the plunge?

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.

Once you’ve got your list, go back to the boilerplate form letter you were using for the Amazon top reviewers. Tweak it a little, making sure to reference things spotted on the blogger’s pages, and adding any commonalities. Email them (if contact info is available on their site) or use the contact form on their site if available.

However, I like writing honest reviews and reviews that actually help people, even if they don’t receive votes for it. I’ve seen some Vine reviewers who were honest, but the majority are not, imo. I’ve seen positive Vine reviews for products where all the non-Vine reviews were poor. So while I’d love to be a Vine member, I don’t think I’m dishonest enough for it.

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.

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.

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

Any feedback you can provide will be appreciated. I am very frustrated as this is increasing the time I am spending attempting to navigate obtaining products and managing the entire process. I am performing a job search and the time I spend on product review is intended to give me a mindless break in between completing job applications.

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.

Hi Tristan, I find that the email address in the profile has been missing on Amazon recently. And I think it not just happened to me. So the most effient way becomes no way and amazon sellers like me don’t have other chances to contact reviewers via email. That is very anoying. Do you guys have came up with some brilliant ideas to solve this problem? I saw someone writing his email address in “About me” as name(at)gmail(dot)com and it is visiable.

Thank you for such valuable information, Lou! I’m commenting on your reply regarding ProductTestingUSA.com being a scam. It would be nice to note in the main article if possible, since not everyone will read all the comments.

One downside here is that they tend to mix it up here! Sometimes you find fabulous deals that save you a lot but there are also lots of what I call cheap deals. I mean, 50% off is great but then it is not great saving when you apply them to those that cost little (like 5 bucks) in the first place.

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

Suppliers often find you based on reviews you have written before. Example: a camera manufacture will go to Amazon and open up detail pages on cameras that are similar to the one they want reviewed. They will likely sort the reviews by the latest ones and start scanning them for well written reviews. As we mentioned before, this would be a review of good length, the content covers the product features, has some constructive criticism (not too much), and the tone of voice is neutral yet leaning toward supportive.

Do you think leaving an Amazon review How to Know If You Can Trust an Amazon Product’s Reviews How to Know If You Can Trust an Amazon Product’s Reviews Amazon product reviews are hit or miss. Sometimes they’re helpful, sometimes they’re fake. Here’s a tool you can use check the integrity of a given product’s reviews. Read More is a waste of time? Then, an Amazon program that’s been around since 2007 might have you thinking twice. Amazon’s Vine Program consists of a group of handpicked reviewers who get products for free in exchange for honest reviews.

Be sure to add a picture and a location to your profile. For some products, there may be a geographic limit to where they can send it. Some items can’t ship via air, and other items have a short shelf life and need to get there quick. And be professional about the image you choose. A half-naked selfie of you is not going to win over suppliers, unless you are looking to attract products for half-naked selfie-taking type people.

“why review products on amazon -how to get free products from amazon for reviews”

But after reading this post, I went in and cleaned up a few of mine that weren’t detailed, and I scanned all of my titles to make sure they would stand out to a consumer as the type that would be helpful.

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.

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

Let’s say that during calendar year 2016, 10 of the sellers I refer spend 1,000 in the site’s platform fees during their first month, will I then be issued an IRS form 1099 indicating that I earned 10,000 in taxable (to me) income? Sure, prior to completing my “refer a seller program membership upgrade”, I would be aware of this since I’ll have read the site agreement’s fine print. Yes, I do that when my tablet and my phone prompt me to upgrade iOS software, just like I do when an upgrade/update message from iTunes/MS Word/Acrobat Reader appears on my screen asking me to click, “agree” prior to clinking, “install.” Sure I do.

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.

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.

Frosty, I think you may have misunderstood what Venushakti Velatura was conveying. VV was being paid to write fake reviews – it was her job. So, yes, in fact, “those companies” WERE telling VV to compose positive and (VV states) negative reviews. She didn’t get free or discounted products, she (I assume VV is female if that is her real picture) didn’t get products AT ALL. She put food on the table by writing fiction, either to boost sales or undermine competitors, depending, apparently, on her assignment.

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

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.

This review program is part of the ZeroLemon brand of accessories for action cameras and smartphones. Like Mengo, Arctic Product Tester Program, and TrueOpinion, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. Available to reviewers in USA.

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

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.

On behalf of Giveaway Service Team, I wish to thank you for writing such a positive comment about us. I would also like to point out that the discounted price on our website must not exceed $2. This means authors review products they got for free or at a highly discounted price.

I know this list can be overwhelming, but you can start from the beginning and work your way down. The more panels you join the more chances at getting products to test, plus you can make money too with these panels.

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

Hello. Have you ever tried Giveaway Service? We’d like to point out that there are 19,500+ influential authors who individually receive thousands of daily visitors and have over 190,000+ combined Facebook fans looking to review products via our website. More than 45,500 reviews have been published through our service that exists for roughly one year and is growing constantly. We are committed to making both businesses and authors satisfied with our services and encourage everyone to leave a comment and join the discussion.

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

Your suspicions are not without warrant. It’s a fact that these “incentivized” reviewers are much more likely to rate something 5-stars than anyone else: http://reviewmeta.com/blog/analysis-of-7-million-amazon-reviews-customers-who-receive-free-or-discounted-item-much-more-likely-to-write-positive-review/

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

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.

But IMO Vine is a minor gnat compared to the plauge of Coupon Queens/Kings that are flooding the listings with millions and millions of reviews where they bury their “Honest and Unbiased review” disclosure. It gets so frustrating trying to find a product that doesn’t have hundreds or even thousands of coupon reviews. Sometimes I will go to Bed, Bath & Beyond or Home Depot’s website and get the brand names of legitimate products and then specifically look up those brand names on Amazon. And a lot of the times it is cheaper at BBY or HD so Amazon loses a sale.

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

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

As for the second criteria – Amazon looks for your interest and expertise in specific product categories. Anecdotal evidence shows that sticking to one product category, and becoming a recognized and helpful expert in that field gives you a better chance of becoming a Vine member.

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

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

All of that said, the Echo is more than a music streamer, just as an iPhone is more than a telephone. The key is Alexa. She’s helpful, she’s capable and she’s mostly good at understanding what I’m asking of her, enough so to put her right on par with Apple’s Siri as far as virtual assistants go.
