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.

    i was unable to get through step 4.  i was able to post it on amazon, but instead of taking me to a place where i could complete step 4, it just says "Review submitted - Thank you!" but it didnt' take me to a specific URL that i need to put in the ARC steps to complete the Arc:

    this was the URL at the top, but it says " This must be a direct link to your review on Amazon". which i can't get to?? any advise please? thank you!

    Left a review on Amazon for a book I finished tonight.  Hope it posts in time for August 1, 2020.  For Sheila English's new Adam Frankenstein novel.

    Do you have any tips on how to write a review that Amazon will approve quickly? I feel that we get caught in a situation with Amazon. They do not allow reviews until the book is actually released, and then they can take days to actually post the review on the site. I’ve missed out on reviewing books for authors many times because my review wasn’t complete or was overdue. Something has to give. Either we need to have an allowance of time to get the link to booksprout  without being blocked from additional reviews, convince Amazon to process the reviews more quickly, or convince Amazon to allow reviews to be posted before the book is released

    I left my review on Amazon, but it still says processing my review. It says it may take several days. How can I get the link to show I left my review when Amazon won't release it?

    I tried to save the link from my comments in Amazon and it’s says: This must be direct link to your review on Amazon. I read et did all the steps needed and it doesn’t work. What can I do ?
