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 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.

    Amazon won't accept my review but I have all the other required ones filled out. This is incredibly frustrating as I'm now unable to complete the last step. Emailed the author and hoping this won't affect me down the future.

    I really don't think it's right to be held responsible for reviews that are not being posted on Amazon. I have not had any issues posting on any other websites. I have contacted Amazon and the Author and the issue isn't being resolved. I don't want to be delinquent when I did what I was supposed to do.
