How to Remove Negative Product Reviews on Amazon

 

What is the difference between Seller Feedback and Product Review?

How to Remove Negative Product Review on Amazon

 

Seller Feedback is a seller “report card” from Amazon customers about their buying experience. A Product Review is the review of the items purchased, and should not be about the seller or the purchasing experience.

 

It ‘s very difficult to convince Amazon to remove negative product reviews. Even when it is blatantly in a customer’s best interest to remove said product review. Sometimes fake reviews come in the form of negative 1-3 star reviews. You should aim to have squeaky clean product reviews. That can be achieved by getting negative product reviews removed through claims that the reviews break Amazon’s terms and conditions. To do this successfully, you should quote Amazon’s own rules when asking to remove a review.

 

 

Figure out which of the responses below would make the most sense, then file a ticket by selecting Selling on Amazon issue > Products and inventory > Product Reviews. Provide the all details and properly describe the issue by mentioning the correct section in their Terms and Conditions. You will have around 1-20% chance of getting a removal, and it will almost always take 3 follow-ups on the ticket. But it will surely be worth all the effort.

 

At the most, you might have a 20% chance of getting a removal, and it will almost always take 3 follow-ups on the ticket. But it will surely be worth all the effort.

I was fortunate to be part of MAG's first batch of its Advertising Internship Program. The timing was perfect for me as I was looking for an opportunity to learn more about Amazon PPC and at the same time to have hands-on training to work on accounts.  

 

When I started my internship, I listed down the things I wanted to learn. And I am happy to say that I've ticked all the boxes! My most favorite was "Optimization Using Bulk Files”. Bulk files and I, we did not get along at first, it was so scary seeing all those data! But I had a great mentor who guided me along the way. He patiently taught me step by step on how to process the data. He was very enthusiastic in answering all of my questions. He supported me until I gained the confidence in uploading my first, second, third (and so on) bulk uploads. 

 

The biggest advantage in working with MAG (and I must say one thing that I always look forward to every week) is its Weekly Ads Training. Every week, we discuss various topics about PPC. Interns/Ads Specialists/Ads Managers, we all share knowledge, information, and updates about PPC. During our discussions, we exchange ideas and feedback. It became an avenue not just to learn a skill, but also to clear any vague or ambiguous PPC topics. 

 

For me, the biggest disadvantage is the work schedule. As an Intern, I have to follow EST timing. The time difference from my location was only 8 hours, but being a morning person, I really struggled to keep myself awake. But if you are a night owl, then this will not be a problem for you.

 

So if you are considering joining the MAG Advertising Internship Program, my advice to you is to take action - APPLY NOW! The knowledge that you will gain and the skill that you will develop from this program will be invaluable. And who knows? From being an Intern, you might be the next one to be promoted as Jr. Ads Specialist!
