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 have 2 books which I reviewed and I'm still waiting for Amazon to post the reviews. The other sites posted the reviews but Amazon is not playing nice this week!

    Amazon's system does not correspond to your directions.  Once I submitted my review I got a popup saying it would be posted in a few days! I did send a message via Booksprout support and hope to get an answer as to "what now?"  And see the 2 comments below mine, sounds like the same problem I'm having.

    why is Amazon giving us a hard time leaving reviews? This week alone three will not post...

    Same issue.  My review is on Amazon but can not get  the link 

    To Booksprout.  Looking at the issues everyone I’d having I am not  sure I will use them again.

    I cannot get the URL accepted. How am I supposed to get my ARCs review verified by you when this happens?

    The Amazon URL was not accepted. I copy/pasted the link, but it was not recognized as a valid review link. Here it is: maybe you can fix it
