Amazon automatically sends emails asking buyers to leave reviews and feedback. You do not have to do anything.
We do not permit reviews or votes on the helpfulness of reviews that are posted in exchange for compensation of any kind, including any of the following:
The reviewer owns the copyright of the review. You can ask for the reviewer's permission by responding to the review.
No. Reviews written for financial gain violate our guidelines and will be removed.
Yes, provided the buyer has made at least one purchase using their Amazon account. They can review any product on Amazon, regardless of where they purchased that product. However, if a reviewer did not buy the product on Amazon, their review will not be marked as an Amazon Verified Purchase.
We only allow buyers to submit reviews for items that have already been released for sale. We make an exception for the following product releases:
If you see reviews appearing on a product before it is released and none of the above apply, use the Report abuse link next to the review to report it.
At this time, our product reviews are limited to one Amazon site. However, we do have a feature that spotlights reviews from Amazon.com.mx on international Amazon websites for the same product. While the reviews are spotlighted, the votes and number of reviews do not count towards the total votes for the listings on international websites.
Yes. Amazon shares Product Reviews across Child ASINs in a Variation to make it easier for customers to make informed purchasing decisions. We only share reviews when products are materially the same and listed in the same category. Reviews of each product should be relevant and applicable to the entire set.
Customer reviews are about the product and seller feedback is about the seller and the purchase experience. Customer reviews do not affect your seller performance, but seller feedback can have an impact on your performance metrics.
If you receive feedback that is about the product and not your service or the shopping experience, contact us.
No. Amazon does not notify sellers when new reviews are posted for the products they sell.
You can add a comment to a review by clicking on the Comment button below the review. Note: one or more purchase history is required.
No. As long as a product is listed on Amazon, its reviews will continue to appear. We do, however, remove reviews that violate our guidelines. Buyers can also remove their own reviews.
No. Any information a buyer provides could be helpful to other buyers.
Reviews are removed from the Amazon website for these reasons only:
If you see reviews that you think are inappropriate or fake, use the Report abuse link next to the review to report it.
No. We encourage our buyers to give their honest opinions on our products. As long as the review is within our guidelines, we will not remove it.
No. You cannot block a buyer from writing reviews on your products. If you think a review violates our guidelines, use the Report abuse link next to the review to report it.
No. We check reviews for violations of our guidelines, but we do not edit reviews.
Yes. Buyers can change their reviews at any time. However, you may not ask buyers to change their reviews.
No. That is entirely up to the buyer to decide. You are not allowed to pressure buyers to remove reviews.
