Amazon Review Policy by MG WELLS ๐Ÿ“


As many of you may know, AMAZON now has a monetaryย  review policy, which is unfair to those who sell book/products on Amazon.

Amazon states, “To write a Customer Review, a customer must have used their account to make at least $50.00 in purchases in the past 12 months on with a valid credit or debit card. Once their order has shipped, they’ll be able to write a review. In Addition, any customer who has met the purchase requirements is entitled to write a customer review that meets our Community Guidelines.”

Authors/Sellers rely on reviews for sales and visibility on Amazon since the market is so vast and saturated. Here is the LINK to the verbose Amazon review policy:

It only takes 10 minutes or less to write a brief review on Amazon. One or two lines is sufficient, add some stars, submit the review and you are done.

It is unnecessary to write a lengthy review. Most customers look to the stars and do not want to readย  exceptionally LONG reviews. Please keep it simple.


I am grateful to those who have written reviews for my books, which I GIVEAWAY on Amazon 3-4 times a year. Both are short, clean reads. Unfortunately, many have said they’d review my books and have not.

Brief reviews are appreciated. I know many who sell on amazon and we are grateful to the kind souls who take the time to review. Thanks and have a wonderful day.

    Thanks so much and enjoy the day.

  7. I also see the Stars.
    Very rarely I write a review.

  8. I like this. Commenting on books is probably not too controversial. However, I quit providing reviews for most companies. They have become litigation happy and are suing individuals, claiming defamation, if they get a bad review. These cases are not easy cases to win, but they don’t care, because the person being sued must cough up the money to defend themselves.

      Thanks and I am an Independent Author so I Love Reviews. I’ve taken some hits by nit-picking reviewers and have learned it is part of the gig. Any review an indie author gets on Amazon is appreciated…by me at least. Thanks for sharing and enjoy the day.
