Amazon guidelines for Reviews

So, here’s what Amazon’s guidelines say about asking for reviews from customers.

  • You cannot ask directly or indirectly for your customers to leave a review.
  • You cannot ask directly or indirectly for your customers to leave only a positive review.
  • You cannot pay a bribe to your customers to leave a review.
  • You cannot ask for feedback in exchange for a discount coupon.
  • You cannot ask a customer to remove or edit a negative review.
  • You can only ask for honest feedback.

If amazon systems find any violation of the above points that review will be deleted and the seller will be penalized. It is advisable not to purchase reviews from Facebook groups. I have personally seen 100s of seller accounts being suspended for this reason.
