FAQ: Amazon won't let me review a book

In some circumstances, Amazon might prevent your account from writing a review on their website. If you've found yourself in this situation, here's the steps to take.

  1. Contact the author of the book in question. Most are quite forgiving and will understand the temporary setback given how unpredictable Amazon is.
  2. Contact Amazon customer support. They may be able to give you a better reason as to why you cannot review, or even better they may be able to allow your review to go through.

As much as we'd love to help, Booksprout support has no influence over Amazon and cannot help in this situation.

    Amazon will not accept my ARC review and says it is not eligible for review

    Like some of the others, Amazon has banned me from reviewing and deleted all 50,000 of my reviews. Im so upset. Is there any way to not have that one as a requirement? Sorry for any inconvenience.

    I have trying to get Amazon to approve my review and so far they haven't approved the review that I left.  I usually don't have this issue with them.

    Amazon has banned me from reviewing.  Is there anyway to have them taken off as a requirement because I can't complete the last step and it's making my reviews overdue. I've emailed the authors who's arcs I've read so that they can approve on their end.

    I contacted the author a couple of months ago to apologise for not being able to review on Amazon. I reviewed the book in other places but now the book is still sitting waiting and I don‘t know how to get it removed

    Amazon is not letting me leave a review, I apologize for the inconvenience, I have just contacted the author.

    I can't get Amazon to accept that review, same as everybody below. I did go onto Amazon and just do a review under the book instead of doing it through Booksprout. Hopefully that will count!

    Amazon has recently started rejecting and taking down my ARC reviews. Is there anyway to have them taken off as a requirement because I can't complete the last step and it's making my reviews overdue.

    I'm unable to complete the last step. Amazon is not allowing me to review. I have contacted the author.

    Amazon won't accept my review and I'm now unable to complete the last step. What should I do now?

    I have mailed the Author as well. Waiting for a solution. This book/Author has requested review only on Amazon.
