Can an Amazon seller remove a review?
Can A Seller Remove Negative Feedback? – No, Amazon sellers cannot directly remove negative feedback. They can only remove it by contacting Amazon or asking the customer to delete their feedback. Amazon will only remove negative reviews in the following circumstances: The feedback contains phrases that are typically regarded as vulgar or obscene.
How does Amazon verify reviews?
“Verified Purchase” means the reviewer bought or used the item on Amazon, and paid a price available to most Amazon shoppers. After someone submits a review, we check if they:
Bought or used the item on Amazon; Paid a price available to most Amazon shoppers.
If we confirm both, we label the review as “Verified Purchase.” Reviews without this label can also be helpful. For example, a customer buys an item from a different company, but wants to share their opinion on Amazon.
Who is the #1 reviewer on Amazon?
Amazon reviewer legend Joanna Daneman back in the day. https://plus.google.com/107009697275167521542/posts Being Amazon’s top reviewer comes with some sweet perks. Just ask Joanna Daneman, a Delaware woman who has achieved Amazon’s Hall of Fame recognition 12 different years, making her the #1 Hall Of Fame reviewer of all time.
She’s part of the company’s elite, invitation-only Vine program, which means that she gets boatloads of new products sent to her for free. “It’s almost an embarrassment of riches,” Daneman tells Business Insider of the trove of stuff Amazon sends her at least once a month. Amazon started the Vine program seven years ago to help increase its number of useful reviews.
Its only stipulations are that participants need to write reviews of the objects they receive and they can’t resell the products afterwards. Companies pay a fee to Amazon to participate. Since joining Amazon, Daneman has written nearly 3,000 reviews, 97% of which other Amazon users have deemed exceptionally helpful and says that she averages one post a day, though sometimes it’s much more. Amazon Daneman receives a wide range of free products through Vine, from the super-expensive to the strange, including strobe lights, green tea powder, a “zombie dissection kit,” memory cards, knives, a printer, a soldering iron, baby toys, and a Japanese kitty litter system.
- Often they’re things that Daneman never would have thought to purchase herself otherwise.
- When Daneman spoke to Business Insider she had just received a welder, which she planned to test out on a friend’s farm over the weekend.
- The system used to be that Vine Voices would receive a list of goods to choose from every month, but now, Daneman says, she constantly has a queue of new products that she can browse.
She can’t guesstimate the value of what she’s received over the last seven years. Here’s a five-star review Daneman wrote about a toy bear (she has a friend with a young child) that’s packed with colorful details: Amazon But Daneman doesn’t always give our five stars. She says she has received a lot of really good kitchen stuff, but this strawberry slicer didn’t make the cut: Amazon Daneman admits the Vine program has kindled jealousy in reviewers who aren’t part of it, who will sometimes ding a review just because a “Vine Voice,” as members are called, wrote it. Daneman insists that just because she gets products for free doesn’t mean that she’ll give them glowing reviews, and that there is no obligation to do so from Amazon or the companies who supply the products.
Daneman’s fast-paced review-writing habit started in the early 2000s. She was living in Germany at the time and fell in love with Amazon because it was the easiest way for her to get her hands on English books. Daneman is a voracious reader — whipping through 30 or 40 books a month — and since shipping costs so much, she’d carefully pick through reviews before ordering a book.
She always found community reviews to be the most helpful, so she started writing some of her own as a way to give back. Her fun, frequent, and thorough reviews attracted a following, and when she came back to the states, she actually had several people come visit her.
She’s still friends with several other reviewers. Daneman kept her habit going because she loves to write, but doesn’t like to journal. She works as a financial advisor, so she keeps her skills sharp through Amazon. “Amazon created a community,” Daneman says. “Wherever else you might buy things online, you’re not talking to anybody.

Can I block someone from writing a review?
You can’t block a user but you can report to google by Flag as inappropriate the review, if you think the review doesn’t comply with Google’s review policies. You can’t contact someone who left an inappropriate review, but you can request that Google remove it.
Is reporting a review on Amazon anonymous?
Are reviews anonymous? 2017-12-25 10:05:44 UTC #1 I always thought that product reviews are anonymous and if you don’t use your actual name in the review, the seller can’t identify you. I left a 3 star review yesterday with just initials as the reviewer name and lo and behold, today I was contracted by the seller.
Not a problem, they offered help regarding the review but as a seller, I would like to know how they were able to do it. It was a high sales volume charger for a phone so not easy to go through all returns and match the review to the return details but not impossible. Does anyone have any clues? 2017-12-25 10:14:18 UTC #2 No, I haven’t left feedback.2017-12-25 13:16:09 UTC #3 Thanks WGLtroll for your comment, you couldn’t be more wrong though.
It was a genuine review for something I bought, that’s the point of reviews isn’t it? I don’t sell electronics. But I am interested to know if reviews are anonymous, as I always thought they were. You must have had reviews on your own products that you wish you could contact the customers about? Or maybe all your products are perfect? 2017-12-25 10:10:20 UTC #4 Maybe you left Feedback around the same time and the seller took an educated guess ? 2017-12-25 12:57:45 UTC #5 why would you want to know? Sounds like you are another clown who leaves fake reviews on competitors 2017-12-27 23:05:23 UTC #6 It depends on the Reviewer.
You have the option to give it as ‘Anonymous’ or give your name. You must have given your name and the seller would have looked it up in their order history and found you and contacted to resolve the issue for you it appears. Just look up your reviewer profile – the public profile and see the settings there.2017-12-28 19:02:39 UTC #7 Yes, it does show as a comment on the review but it also automatically sends a message to the reviewer to their private email saying that you have received a message/comment (address hidden of course) is that not what you got? If not, sorry if I misunderstood.
Still, nice to know that we can reply to those unjust reviews – before trying to get them removed! 2017-12-28 18:00:24 UTC #8 Hi For a product review you can call yourself what you like. Many just leave it as “Amazon Customer” but whatever they are called if you click on their name (or Amazon customer) all their reviews will show.
- As a seller all you need do is find your product amongst their reviews and click on the little arrow that shows to the right of each review.
- This gives you the facility to post a message or comment to the reviewer without knowing who they are or any other of their personal details – so yes, you remain anonymous Rugsy as they can’t identify you, but you are still “contactable”.
Trust this answered your question. Tracey 2017-12-28 18:55:01 UTC #9
Thanks Tracey, I got a bit excited there as I thought that was the answer but that only let’s you post a message or reply onto the review.This was an actual message received in my messages.I think I will ask the actual seller how they do it.
2017-12-29 08:15:11 UTC #10 Thats the Amazon messaging service for you! The reason I know a message is sent to the reviewer’s private email address is because I received one, (not from the seller) but from another customer who agreed with my review and who was also happy with the product (a satellite box receiver in this case) 2017-12-29 08:02:39 UTC #11 I just checked the review I left and there is certainly a comment by the seller but I never received this.
- I don’t believe that comments are emailed to the reviewer.
- The comment said (words to that effect): Sorry to hear etc etc, our products are guaranteed etc and we have sent you an email etc.2017-12-29 10:27:15 UTC #12 De rien – You’re welcome! closed 2018-06-27 10:20:06 UTC #14 This topic was automatically closed 180 days after the last reply.

Can a seller remove feedback?
Marketplace seller feedback once added cannot be edited. It can only be removed.
Can customers remove reviews?
Can you delete a Google review? – Unfortunately, Google doesn’t offer a simple “delete” option for its reviews. Instead, there are only two ways that a review can be removed. The person who posted the review can delete it or your business can “flag the review as inappropriate.” Flagging the review alerts Google that the review is fake or that it doesn’t comply with Google’s review policies, Image Source It’s important to note that Google has built-in spam checkers that automatically analyze a review for inappropriate, irrelevant, or misleading content. While this feature is pretty reliable, inaccurate reviews are sometimes overlooked which can lead to negative perceptions of your business.
