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.

    Hello 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

    Not sure what to do else

    Amazon is still not updating and adding my review. I've posted everywhere else. I'd hate to be penalized for something beyond my control.

    I did not have a problem with Goodreads review, and I inserted the link. I have the same Amazon problem as [email protected] Now your review page will not let me confirm my reviews.  I sent you a message. I sent the author a message with my review included. Would you please respond with how I complete the review process? Thank you. I want to review more books, but it is waiting for me to post reviews.

    Just to make you all aware that this may be the "new" way Amazon does things. They are always changing how to leave reviews I swear (Insert eyeroll here). Love you guys! Keep up the good work!

    I left a review on Amazon and on Bookbub, you can check them out or not, I am not going through with all of that mess to show you that I left a review.  Sorry but it is just not worth my time to go back and look up my review on both sites and do this.

    The new Amazon UK rules state that I can no longer leave reviews unless I make a £40 purchase each year. Not happening as there is nothing I can afford or want to buy from Amazon as they do not accept PayPal. Pity as I've been a devoted reviewer for many years.

    Like someone else posted, I am unable to post a review on Amazon. I get the message, "Item is not eligible to be reviewed"

    Like someone posted: Amazon is saying it will take a few days to post.   I can not get a URL until they do. It's also not listed on Goodreads.
