How to review on Amazon

If you're new to reviewing on Amazon, follow these steps to leave your review on their website and prove to Booksprout that you've completed your review.

In some cases, Amazon may prevent you from leaving a review. If that's the case, please refer to this guide on what to do when Amazon won't accept your review.

NOTE: These instructions will only work with the Amazon website. You will be unable to follow them when using the Amazon app, so make sure you're in a web browser and not the app.

Step 1

Click on the "Leave Your Review" button just under the Amazon heading. It should take you directly to the book's review page where you can leave your review.

Step 2

On Amazon's website, you should see the book you need to review at the top. Click on one of the stars to leave your rating. After rating the book, Amazon will take you through some more steps to write and complete your review.

Step 3

Once your review is completed and saved, your review should look something like this. Click on the title of your review to get taken to your review's dedicated page on Amazon.

Step 4

Once you're on a page that shows only your review, we'll need the url to it. You can usually see this at the top of your browser. Copy that URL and move onto the next step.

Step 5

Once you have the URL to your review on Amazon, head back to the ARC on Booksprout and paste it into the field provided

Step 6

Scroll down to the bottom and click the "save" button.

    Like many of the other readers, I’m not able to copy the link. Frustrating to say the least. I copied the review and sent straight to the author!

    I left a review on Amazon but am unable to copy the link here.  I think it may be because I'm on a tablet and not my PC.  When Booksprout figures out how to copy the link on a tablet, I'll be glad to share the link.

    I left a review on Amazon.ca and I tried to copy it to Booksprout but I can’t do the last step, not sure what to do or if it left my review on here now.  Frustrating....

    I have left a review on Amazon.com.au,  but I'm unable to get a url. How can you 'prove' that you did review a book?

    I have not been able to find the url on an iPhone. Is there a way to make this work using an iPhone?

    It finally took.

    I followed your instructions and you did not accept the url from step 3 and 4.

    I cannot find a direct link between Amazon and myself.  This is an awful way to leave a review.  I feel signing up to be an ARC through you a huge waste of my time.  I did write a review on Amazon.  That was a lot easier.

    I left a review on Amazon and came back to Booksprout and typed in the only link I could fine. Amazon has my review and is using it because I went to the book page and saw it. This is a very confusing way to leave a review.

    Amazon said I couldn't leave a review because the book hadn't been released yet.
