Why Amazon Reviews Are Important
On Amazon, customer reviews serve two purposes.
|Affects search ranking||When a customer performs a search higher rated items will be listed first in the search results. If your reviews average between one and three stars your seller account could be suspended.|
|Customers use them to make purchase decisions||With such a variety of products to choose from most customers rely on reviews to make their decision.|
Review or Feedback?
If you make a purchase on Amazon you will likely be asked to leave a product review and seller feedback. These are not the same. A review should relate to the product, its quality, and value, it should not relate to the seller, delivery, or shipping issues.
How to Report a Fake Amazon Review
At the bottom of each review box, there is a button that will allow you to mark the review as helpful and a button that will allow you to report abuse. Before clicking the button be sure to gather all of the information that you will need.
- You will want to include a link to the review.
- The order ID number.
- Time and date.
- Reviewer information.
- Anything else relevant to the and why you are requesting removal.
Reasons a Review Can Be Removed
A review can only be removed by Amazon. The only reason Amazon will remove a review is if it violates the community guidelines such as:
- Fake reviews
- Obscene language
- Underhanded activities
- Reviews by competitors
- Inappropriate comments
Sellers are advised to stay current on community guidelines and changes.
What Else Can Be Done About Fake Competitor Amazon Reviews
Using the report abuse button is an easy way to report a review but it is not the most successful. Sellers have reported difficulty getting a response or getting Amazon to take action. A better option for reporting a review is to gather all of the information needed including a link to the review and go to your Amazon Seller Central dashboard. Navigate to the support section and following the on-screen prompts you will be given an option to open a case or to contact support.
There is no phone number or email address for Amazon Seller Support, the only way to connect is through the seller central dashboard. Opening a case will allow you to submit your request for the removal of the review. Note: Amazon community guidelines no longer allow sellers to respond to negative reviews or to contact the reviewer directly about the negative review.
