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.

    Amazon has been doing this to me for several months now. If you do get lucky enough to have your review posted, look for it in customer reviews. Right click on your header by the stars. It should bring up your review. There should be below your review, comment and permalink. I click on permalink,  and you should be able to copy the https: // at the top of your page. Hope this helps. I am still waiting for the past week for another review on Amazon. This has been going on for months. Told them I will not be renewing Amazon Prime this next year if they don't get it right soon.

    I have left a review on amazon but since I did it from my iPad there is no URL. How do I prove it to you then?

    I keep submitting my review in but it keep saying it will be processed in a few days

    It keeps saying it must be a direct link. I am copying the url like it said to do but booksprout won't accept it.

    my amazon review links to do not work.  I have tried everything and booksprout says it's not a real link.  I have had to cancel arc promises because of this. I agree with the post below.  just a box should work. or a way to paste a screenshot of the amazon review.

    I think that Booksprout should have a little checkbox on the review page that we can tick to say that, yes, we have posted the review to Amazon, but Amazon hasn't approved it yet. It's amazing; some of my reviews are posted almost instantly, while others take 2-3 days.

    I have done the Amazon review, and once complete it says may take up to several days for it to be verified,  then to get a email from here saying my review is overdue I don't appreciate at all. I always do my very best to get each one done on time, but thru no fault of my own, because of the slackness of Amazon whom is a pain in the butt in the first place. As soon as I complete the reviews for the books I got from this site I will be removing myself from here. It should not be such a hassle to try to do a review.

    The same thing is happening to me.  Amazon will release some of my reviews, but not all.  It's very upsetting when you agree to read and review a book and Amazon will not release you review to your profile.

    I have already read the book, wrote the review and post it on amazon. But it doesn't show up yet.

    Amazon says it can take up to a few days. What now?

    These instructions never work. I can never get link. Horrible way to verify.
