It’s funny that Amazon tried to sue many websites for doing exactly this. You can still buy amazon reviews at sites like https://launchzon.com/ but I guess they gave up on lawsuits and are just trying to make an extra buck like this now. Way to go Amazon!
I think Amazon should take this review devaluing more seriously! And maybe a few rounds of region-based boycott’s would help them take notice? Instead they dink around w/ taking or giving Prime Benefits or spin off more fee based memberships with new names! Aye! BTW, has anyone made a Hitler reaction video yet?
I love tomoson!!! Best one of all these. Gives me so many products a month I usually have abt four items at a time to review and it’s so easy!!! Amazon review trader has been slow they were good when I first signed up one of the very firsts to get a product from and got a few more however now I keep getting deals without being prime eligible so then I end up having to pay for shipping when the product is free which is ridiculous however I can not figure out how to know if it’s prime eligible or not before I Accept the promo. And then I try and contact the sellers and no response. This is an issue with abt four of my promos right now and I can’t seem to get and answer so I’m not really a big fan of them anymore. I am completely satisfied with tomoson tho :). Can’t wait for more updates if you have any.
“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.
When the final list is complete, our reviewers reach out to manufacturers in search of no-strings-attached samples or products available on loan. Side note: Most manufactures are happy to provide samples – never mind the possibility of a bad review – because they believe in the quality of their products and look forward to the free press – good, or bad. In some instances, when a product sample is not available, we head to the store and shell out the cash to pick it up just like you would.
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.
Vogue never sent me anything over the year I was with them..BUT..they kept sending surveys. I finally wrote them and told them they were just using my information for free and I was tired of it. So..don’t join unless you just want to fill out surveys and get NOTHING in return.
“I have been using Amazon feedback software, FeedbackExpress, for a month now and without question, my seller metrics are improving. The carefully worded emails they have produced are without question getting more customers to leave positive feedback and product reviews.”
But unlike Siri, which is still secondary to touch as a means of interfacing with iOS devices, Alexa is essentially all the Echo has. It was critical for Amazon to get her right — thankfully, she delivers (and yes, calling Alexa “she” feels more correct than calling Alexa “it,” a testament to how personable she is).
I ask it for the morning headlines as I brew my 8 a.m. pot of coffee. I ask it to play the most recent episode of my favorite podcast while I work out. I ask it to set a timer when I throw a frozen pizza in the oven for dinner. I ask it to turn my lights out when I’m hitting the sack. It’s always listening, and it always just works.
Most review sites allow the sellers to check out the viewers and approve or disapprove them. I have made a database of the reviewers and make sure I do not send two coupons for the same product to the same person. Most sellers on Amazon are struggling and thefts like this can bring us down completely. I have nothing personal against AmzRC and its owner Andy, but unfortunately he is facilitating this theft and is not willing to rectify it. I just want to warn other sellers before they get burned like me. Andy does not care. Amazon does not care. It is your responsibility care about yourself”
No argument there! I only found it recently, when I was looking at stereo equipment, and trying to get things that were only the specific item, so I took to clicking on all the things trying to find a filter.
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 guess is that this is a reviewer that does not know about the new rule changes. Should I contact the reviewer and let them know about the change and explain that we were not expecting a review in exchange for the discount?
For the sake of our Amazon review-centered discussion, simply click for the “customer reviews” link and sort by newest reviews. Click the reviewer’s name for their details. If they provide contact info connected with their profile, you’re in luck! Send an e-mail. If only a name shows up, try contacting them on another social network like Twitter or Facebook.
I’m not going to attack nor defend DRM (Digital Rights Management) in this review since the game does NOT make it a secret that an installation key, Internet connection and registration are needed for a successful and complete installation.
Thank you for letting me know about Fiverr…I went and had a look and I cannot believe that people are selling this service and that it actually seems to very popular, wow!! My eyes really have been opened to this reviewing game, there really is another whole new world on Amazon with this carry on I never knew existed. Funny I was looking through the reviews on a product I had been sent after I read your reply and every one of the 48 reviews were down voted apart from the 3 top rated ones…such shady business. The article you are thinking of writing would be excellent in exposing this…I do agree that this needs to be exposed and I do think Amazon need to be taking it seriously and help combat it! Good luck with it Tristan, I look forward to reading it….
Thank you for this list. I’m with bad agent,pinch me AMD influenster. I’m getting my first campaign with buzz agent I’ll be getting a glade candle. Influsenter let me get a Vick’s humidifier and a Travis silly cup. And pinch me is letting my try some scrub pads, and engaging toddler milk. I will be checking out the other websites u mention too. Thank u!
Deals for Review allows you to get deals for at least 50% off. They even partner with sellers to sample products before they launch for feedback. Most of the products available on this site are for lower-priced items. But, you can still find some good deals on items you will use.
I signed up for a few of these sites, excited! I didn’t think to much about it, but Amazon has a HUGE problem with these sites! They are deceptive, not affilited with Amazon at all and most are against Amazon’s TOS I have since deleted all of the accounnts that would actually let me and changed any info left in the others. I do not recommend using these sites unless you do not care about your Amazon account. Just a heads up! Beware! These sites are all under investigation by Amazon and you may be swept up in the crossfire like so many others have already! Here is a link to the forums on Amazon talking about this exact thing:
This tank R-O-C-K-S! Literally- the 400-watt sound-system keeps me rockin like a crazy man as I’m dishing out justice commando style. Wow. I just can’t say enough. And the kids love it, too- imagine the look of terror in the eyes of the enemy as I’m dropping off my kid’s team to their soccer game. Shock and awe, my friends, SHOCK AND AWE!
Important: Before you can post a review, you need to have an Amazon.com account that has successfully been charged for the purchase of a physical or digital item. Free digital downloads don’t qualify. You don’t need to have purchased the product you’re reviewing. There’s a 48-hour waiting period after your first physical order has been completely shipped, or your digital item has been purchased, before you’ll be able to submit your review. If you’ve purchased a digital gift for someone else, the 48-hour waiting period doesn’t begin until the gift has been redeemed.
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.
The issue isn’t a small one for Amazon and other e-commerce sites, which rely on honest feedback to help customers make informed decisions. Increasingly, younger buyers place a premium on “authenticity,” and sites that they perceive as providing false or biased information may not earn their repeat business.
Loot Hoot has offers for every Amazon marketplace, not just the U.S. and Canada. That being said, it can be difficult at times for American shoppers as many items are listed with foreign currencies and even having shipping prices already included. You can filter by country to make searching easier.
However, many people don’t even have basic editing skills. They can catch some spelling issues but the limit ends about there. For an average Joe, who doesn’t put much thought into the quality of their copy…it is very helpful.
