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.

    My arc review is done.  I have followed the directions and have repeatedly tried to save the URL.  The save button will not lock it in.   I will not keep fighting a lost cause.  When  ARC fixes the problem let me know. r.driggs@yahoo.com

    Ive been trying for days (since 2 July) to leave my review however Amazon won't allow me to, giving me the message: To submit reviews, customers must make a minimum number of valid debit or credit card purchases. Prime subscriptions and promotional discounts don't qualify towards the purchase minimum.


    I don't know what to do!
