It might seem a bit too good to be true, but the product testing sites reviewed in this guide really are genuine and, if you stick with it, they’ll happily send you enough items to keep your spending as low as possible.
Maybe a few paragraphs about how the rise of online shopping has affected academia, or whatever, but you’d probably rather just find out what PhD student Alastair Gibbons has been doing with a vibrator, so here:
This is new kid on the block. Launched just this year, it promises free registration and a multitude of products choices. If they deem you suitable for any particular review work, they will notify you through e-mail.
Thank you Tristan. I have another question. I had this supplement which I rated 5 stars. In their description, and even the title states “made with extracts”. It bugged me that in the ingredient list is states 1000mg of powder. I researched this, and read extracts from this supplement are shown as concentrations or percentage of anthocyanins. Dosages are between 10-100mgs. Also their photo shows it as 100% organic, which the label I received doesn’t show this. This is clearly deceiving sales practices. People are being lied to. Will it hurt me if I rated this product a 1? I’m I setting myself to be attacked by getting not helpful feedbacks? I don’t know what to do. Currently there isn’t any 1 or 2 star reviews. I would appreciate your advice. Thank you.
Just in case anyone needs to fill out a 1099 forms, I found a blank forms in this site PDFfiller. This site also has some tutorials on how to fill it out and a tons of tax forms that you might find useful. Here is a blank 1099-MISC that I was able to fill out http://goo.gl/cfrBuF.
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.”
I like Amazon’s 14 leadership principles (LP) and the company’s culture formed based on LPs. Many companies have culture out there but not every company and employee can truly internalize it. At Amazon, I met many good performers who truly internalized the LPs and apply them in their daily work. For example, teams are often “customers” to each other internally, and you can see that LPs such as customer obsession, think big etc. are impacting every decision making. Such practices not only benefit one’s customers but benefit their own work as well.
Writing a book is hard work. As is marketing that book before and after launch. But when you distribute your book through Amazon, getting reviews may be the single most important thing to determine your book’s future success. There’s no secret formula, and no one way to garner the most reviews, but with a little research, a lot of patience, and a ton of outreach, those coveted reviews are but an email away.
There is none that specializes in electronics. Some of them do send you electronics here and there, but I don’t think there is much of a chance to get a phone. Its mainly small electronics like chargers, headphones, etc.

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.
Below is a list of sites that review products. By no means is it comprehensive. Depending on what you are selling, some of these sites might be in the wrong niche. The point here is really to show you the type of sites to look for, just so you get a feel for it.
I now want to include the first email, as it doesn’t contain the same sort of errors. Which to me, says that I received a form email that has been prepared for employees to send to potential reviewers. And the reply was from the employee and was typed uniquely. Overall, that makes me feel better about it, but I still appreciate your feedback.
The Vine program, and similar methods of eliciting feedback, give away products for free (or sell them at a deep discount) to potential customers vetted (by Amazon in the case of the Vine program) for the helpfulness of their reviews, in exchange for an “honest review.” While these sorts of reviews are far more ethical than paid-for reviews, they can also be a little problematic. Even if the way the review was obtained is disclosed on product pages, several aspects of the purchasing process don’t get considered as part of these programs.
This is a great article and as a person that does test sample products from amazon sellers I can say that I absolutely hate the fake reviews, it ruins the whole process. I take pride in my honest opinion and review of the products I test , I also update my review if something were to go wrong along the way with the item as well. Fake reviews just make it hard on those of us who are genuine and want to help the consumer get an idea of what they can expect from the product they’re looking at . I am one of the people that rely on word of mouth and honest reviews while shopping or looking at a business, it’s often what helps me decide .
