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'm not able to link my review right away. Amazon needs to review it first and it usually takes me 2 days to get a URL to submit my review.

    I have added all reviews on all platforms but booksprout will not let me advance. I can’t get any new ARC’s PLEASE FIX THIS

    I can’t access the URL where I’ve posted my review on Amazon. I always forward the Amazon review directly to the author but Booksprout won’t let me get another ARC.

    I left my ARC review in Amazon on the book released day . However , Amazon haven't published it that was 3 days ago by now my ARC is due and late. What do I do? And how I can communicate this issue to the parties involved.

    I have been trying for days to leave a book review on Amazon however it still hasn’t been approved! My ARC is now over due even though I have left the author a review and also left one on Goodreads.

    The steps say to post a link to your review immediately after it is posted on Amazon but when you submit your review it says, "Review submitted - Thank you! We’re processing your review. This may take several days, so we appreciate your patience. We’ll notify you when this is complete." I hope it's taken into account the fact that it may take some time to be able to "prove" that we posted our review on Amazon.
