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.

    Left my review of Swashbuckling Cats on Amazon and as others have noted, it takes Time...

    I just posted my Amazon review of Claimed and it will take a few days to be approved and posted on their website. Hopefully the link I need will be available once it is posted

    I'm not seeing an link address for my review on Amazon. I clicked on the title to my review and opened it in a separate page. But the search box at the top of the page is blank. How can I get the URL if it's not displayed? Sorry for the probably really simple question. I haven't  worked with computers much since I retired, and I find I've forgotten so much.

    I'm having the same problem as the others, being told my review will take a few days to post. I'm not going to be able to meet the author's deadline.

    Thanks for posting, jeannejabour, as I'm experiencing the same problem leaving a review on Amazon.

    STEP 3 above in WRONG! After I clicked on SAVE, I received a message thanking me for the review and telling me Amazon would process it which could take several days. Note that I have waited several days already for the Amazon link to be published on BOOKSPROUT already before I am allowed to post my review to meet the author's deadline. There is no way a reviewer can click on the title of their review as instructed above and paste the URL into the box because the review title and snapshot above does not appear when you click on save. You have to wait for Amazon to acknowledge and post your review first on their own time. Amazon then sends an email saying your review has been accepted.  

    BOOKSPROUT, you should correct these instructions so other reviewers aren't as needlessly frustrated as I am right now due to your inaccuracy in posting these out-of-date instructions. We are very mindful of the time constraints imposed on us as reviewers and this process for posting on Amazon automatically makes every single one of our required reviews LATE. The Amazon link is usually not activated until the day of publication or a day or two before (if you are lucky). After your review is submitted, Amazon takes 3-4 days in my experience to email me that my review has been posted, thus I am always notified by BOOKSPROUT that I am LATE with my required reviews.

    I've also submitted my review on Amazon but hasn't posted yet

      I also left a review on Amazon but it is saying "Review submitted - Thank you! We are processing your review. This may take several days, so we appreciate your patience. We will notify you when this is complete. Please note that if the review is about your experience with a third-party seller, we may move it to the seller's profile page." I pasted the url for my review as required but it is not accepted by Booksprout.  Not sure what else to do?
