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.

    Same here... I've been waiting for Amazon to approve my review.  Does it matter that I'm in Canada?

    Normally when I post a review on Amazon, within a few moments it posts.  EXCEPT....when I do an ARC review.  When I click the book, write my review, save and post, it never posts to the point of step 5.  If you click on the book to write a review, my review comes up but the link is invalid.  This is so frustrating!!!  I have yet to get  a review  that I can get a link and actually see with the other reviews.

    Does anyone have any idea why it takes so long to post a review on Amazon? I can post on any other site and not have one issue, but Amazon is the worst. It can take days to post, if it ever posts. So frustrating.  I love reading and reviewing but there has to be a better way.
