Amazon Gripe

Ok I’ve been quite frustrated with Amazon lately for reviewers. I always follow all the ftc guidelines for receiving products for review purposes. BUT Amazon still thinks it’s ok to delete all of the reviews and banish that account from reviewing any new item. Without notifying the person. They removed 300+ reviews and this is my account with Amazon Prime. So I had to create a new account then they decided to delete that too! REALLY

I emailed the CEO of amazon and this is the reply I received Executive Customer Relations

I never received another email. I replied and still nothing.

Now after much research and talking to fellow reviewers it seems if you review for a company more than 1 time they will remove all of your reviews. Now when you build a repport with a company they will ask you to review another item. I only do this if I like what the company sends. For example I love Oz Naturals and I love Valentia products and lately I have been enjoying what Moderna sends me as well. Also I review for authors too. Since I review more than one book that puts me into that category. Because there are so many reviewers on Amazon they have decided to be picky and delete those reviewers. Now this is frustrating for me because I write my review then it gets removed and it has been hard to contact these businesses to let the know what has happened.

I’m so disgusted with Amazon right now. So much so I asked to be removed from Tomoson and AMZ review trader. Esp since I have to create a new amazon account. Order something “cannot be a free book”. Then after 3 days I’m now allowed to review products but it goes as a non verified review because I didn’t purchase the item on that account.

I just did another review for Green earth pans and so far I haven’t see it turn up on the new account. I am now to the point to only do reviews on my blog or Youtube.
