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?
Some of these Amazon reviewers make a living doing this – it’s serious business, and some may do as many as 100 reviews a month. Be prepared to offer your product for free in exchange for a review – depending on your product, this could be a pricey expenditure, so you’ll have to decide if this is a strategy you can afford.

With the holidays here, now is a great time to join these programs and make extra money.
The problem can be solved if AmzRC allowed sellers to screen the reviewers, like most other review clubs do. But when I brought the matter up, Andy, the owner of the club, acknowledged the problem and said he will not change his policy. In other words, “I know I am facilitating theft of your product but I could not care less.”
What you are asking for is SEO related. You can always ask people to write a review, but I would suggest that if you are looking for an increase in traffic you buy ads with search engines, or improve your SEO and content strategy. I do not have any recommendations for SEO experts.
Thanks for reminding me about this! Amazon just updated their terms of service section “Prohibited Seller Activities and Actions”, and the act of giving you gift cards is forbidden: “you may not provide compensation for a review other than a free copy of the product.” And “No refunds are permitted after the review is written.” See Amazon’s Prohibited Seller Activities and Actions page.
The problem I have with Amazon and its reviews is this, I review for Amazon where I obtain items I would normally purchase but at a reduced price for my honest opinion. And my reviews are very honest, I have no issue in telling a company that their bvlah blah product is crap and this is why,,,

So, they make it appear that if I refer a seller that signs up with them, then I will will receive all of the sellers (who will likely be highly incentivized with highly discounted first month in fees) “platform” (fees seller pays for privilege of listing their free/discounted products) during their first month. And if that isn’t enough to get me racing to email box to frantically contact my sellers, then perhaps mention of, “And” I will also get more product to review, will motivate me. Of course any increase in products to review (free or discounted) would be a direct result of sellers (that I refer ) signing up and listing their products.
Awesome. Thank you so much for that link. I’ve been searching everywhere trying to get a clear answer for who can leave a review. We just started selling our own products on Amazon and have our own site and are on other platforms, and wanted to use that customer base to leave reviews on Amazon to be found there. It’s clearly spelled out at that link that that is okay and won’t be punished. Thanks again!
Only being able to receive offers through emails can be annoying, but, they do have better savings opportunities than some of the other online review sites. Other users have reported that to qualify for more offers, you need to demonstrate a regular buying history on Amazon and a history of leaving credible deals. It is free to join VIP Power Club.
I have been going to freebies.com ,free samples, an a few others. I click on it an it takes you to candles toilet paper, socks, shoes,tide etc.. You have to answers dumb questions to really never get the free items they show you are they really legit. They also show free kitchen things can never get them. There are alot of sites like this. Would love to try shoes an other things. Please help.
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.
Customers will get better products on their hands, Amazon will improve its brand, and small business private label brands will be able to differentiate themselves with better quality products. As long as you focus on creating a high-quality product, your company will be safe.
I am signed up with a few different places. Loreal is good. you get a nice gift bag with full size products worth over $100. I go to their Clark,NJ location. also CRL in Piscataway,NJ. good studies there too. Coty in Morris Plains,NJ. doing two now. will get paid $100 for one and $30 for the other next week in cash. not bad. Revlon in Edison NJ too.
Missed that. I’m glad FakeSpot is using that investigation technique. I find it just as effective as checking the product’s review dates. To me, they go hand in hand. Unfortunately TheWireCutter neglects to mention that method in their “How We Spot a Phony Review”.
Yes, but the point is that *most* people will have skewed opinions because they recieve the product at a discounted price. You might be honest and try to take prices into account, but you are a minority. The author (or people who “paint a negative brush”) is not saying that you might be dishonest, but a lot more people are and it effects the results no matter how you like it or not. That includes complaining here.
* There are often hidden costs with the products. E.g., I reviewed an A/C-D/C converter for the car. It fried my cigarette lighter, and I had to bring the car to the shop. We are literally testing new products…
This banana slicer is actually one of the more widely known products brimming with over the top and sarcastic reviews. While its very existence is certainly bound to raise a few eyebrows, 5,296 customers gave this an average rating of 4.5 stars. Still, it’s not as if the banana slicer is not without its fair share of controversy.
Once you become a Top Reviewer, companies sometimes request you give them shout-outs on multiple social media accounts. The more expensive the product, the more advertising the companies will want from you in order to get items for free.
After you get the design 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.
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!
You can test cameras and wireless speakers for deeply discounted prices. It’s even possible to get free cell phone cases too. Products are available from the many different product categories listed on Amazon.
A review may not show on your item for one of two reasons. First, your item may not be eligible for review. Second, a review may not have been provided by a buyer. eBay prompts buyers to be the first to write products reviews.
It can be tedious, but sorting the reviews to see the most recent, looking at dates, and actual reading the reviews can help you identify common complaints about a product (runs small, thin material, arrived slowly…).
Four of the largest health insurers were seeking separate mergers. CR raised concerns about how the move would cut choices, drive up costs and compromise quality, pressing the Justice Department to block them.
By your argument we should probably ban wealthier people from writing reviews, because $100 does not hold the same value for me as it does for someone well above (or below) my standard of living. Just because two people pay the same dollar amount does not mean they incur the same cost.
