This issue of valid reviews is just as bad, if not worse, in the Amazon Video section — especially for Indie Films. One called “Fragmented” is a recent example. An awful film somehow achieved a 4.5 star rating; may positive reviews, all with similar wording, and all on the same day.
Secret Deals Club can also be advantageous if you live on the U.S. west coast as other sites send their deals out for the Eastern time zone. If you aren’t an early riser, you might miss out on the best deals if you use another review site.
I have 390 organic reviews in almost 2 years of selling only one product and my business was doing great on Amazon until some new kid on the block came up with over 300 unverified 5 stars reviews in one month to advertise a product similar to mine. I contacted Amazon to complain and the answer was: Anyone who has purchased $50 or more can post a review of any product. Seriously?! Totally dishonest, and deceptive. The story is that now my sales have dropped more than 50% thanks to the Amazon algorithms that show the other product first and although mine has 4 Stars reviews all organic vs 5-Stars from the competition, anyone will think the other product is better because of the reviews (fake reviews). I’m hating Amazon now. If anyone can guide to the company that can get me unverified reviews, I will greatly appreciate it.
They have a huge marketplace supporting reviewers in 12 countries. And a contest they run each week giving away a $25 voucher. Available for reviewers in USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, China.
I 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.
Using these sites and being a member of these clubs and groups is the single most easiest way to get you amazon account banned and all of your reviews wiped. There’s an enormous amount of great info on the amazon forums that will prove this to be true. Paying for these items is not a deal at all. The sellers are making money off of you. It costs literally pennies to produce the cheap items and the seller us making MORE profit off of the people in these review groups than they would by legitimately selling the items – no one would buy them! Also, 99% of the group admins on these Facebook groups and ALL of the sites make a profit off of YOU because they sell the service of providing reviews to the sellers. Which is why the accounts get banned and the sellers get banned… it’s paid reviews and that is against amazons TOS. Also, the rules of the groups and clubs violate the TOS in other ways such as saying if you cannot leave a 4 or 5 star review then contact the seller first.. no, that’s not how it’s supposed to work and that very thing is against the TOS. You leave the coorect review no matter if it is 1 star or 5 star. Telling you to contact them first is MANIPULATION. Guess what they say when you contact them? They tell you to not review the item. Or they will drag it out and waste time stalling the bad review by offering to send you a replacement product. Guess what? The replacement is also a piece of junk. So when you contact them about the junk replacement, guess what they say? They tell you to just not review it and make up excuses about how it must be a bad batch of products or amazon damaged the items during shipping. It’s a lie and it’s just to get you to take the seller’s side, pity them, etc. The group and site owners/admins will also go along with these lies and manipulation. Because they want to keep getting paid, keep getting free products, and keep earning money off of all of the members who purchase these items using their referral links. They try to act like the seller is providing you with a great opportunity or deal, but it’s not a deal or great opportunity at all! It only helps the seller and the sellers only care about themselves. They try to make you think the sellers are saints and such good people to be offering these free and discounted items when the truth is the dollar or so that you lay for the item is more than the item is even worth and it is a dollar that the seller would have made without suckering you into reviewing their cheap junk. So, they make money off of you, plus they get positive reviews on their products to try and convince other shoppers to buy it.. they’re using you to lie for them and say the item is wonderful and scam someone else out of money. These groups and sites DO NOT help shoppers. Most shoppers could care less about your reviews and will automatically bypass any review of free stuff because they know how these groups and sites work. Just read the amazon forums like I said earlier. The forums are amazon customers. The customers know all about these groups and all about the fake reviews and they discuss it heavily. The only person being fooled by all this is the person who pays the dollar and writes the review.
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.

You have to wonder If there is a negativity bias behind this article. Its like they’re implyingnyhay negative reviews are more legitimate than positive. However. When someone has an ax. to grind its not unusual for them to get friends to gangup on a product and lost very extreme negative reviews in an effort to take down someone they dislike. That’s a far worse problemproblem the negative review trolls.
This is Etekcity’s program to help promote the Etekcity brand and Amazon storefront. All products (kitchen scales, diagnostic tools, infrared thermometers, wireless products and more) are from the Etekcity brand.
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).
