So I got contacted by one of my businesses that I got a few promo discounts from and they are telling me that I should STILL write a review for them on amazon even with the new policies in place. If I do will there be an repercussions? Or should I not?

I just got an email from Amazon saying any and all reviews I've ever written that have a disclosure statement at the bottom are going to be removed. So it's up to you, but you'd essentially be wasting your time.

I done a review without the disclosure statement and they sent it through

Yeah I've heard that they may suspend or close the seller and reviewer account so I want to be certain there are no repercussions.

I'm reposting this comment from Miranda. Paul Blum 10/05/2016 06:07 Hello, everyone. Instead of posting reviews on Amazon, you can now post those reviews on your social media accounts and verify them as Amazon reviews. In case of any additional questions, feel free to ask. Kind regards, Miranda.

Dear Emmy, thanks for helping out. As far as reviewing on Amazon goes, you should not post reviews with or without disclosure. Giveaway Service has always acted according to Amazon rules and ToS. Instead of posting reviews on Amazon, you can now post those reviews on your social media accounts and verify them as Amazon reviews. In case of any additional questions, feel free to ask. Kind regards, Miranda.

Can I get reviews about my product on my website?

Dear Serge, Giveaway Service has implemented the system in which it is no longer obligatory for authors to verify their Amazon reviews. We also decided that our members will be able to ask for reviews on the following platforms: Social media including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter; Personal blogs; Etsy; and Walmart. You can require those tasks. You can suggest to authors to post reviews on your website in messages, but that cannot be a requirement. Kind regards, Miranda.

I had a similar situation. A seller told me.they were not paying 50-100 a month to have me post to.social media, and that it was okay for me to post to Amazon, stating they "took a class over all of this.". I informed them Amazon let me know they would not accept reviews from me on discounted items from certain. Companies, they have already warned me. The seller contacted me 2 times being slightly pushy about the review. I felt very uncomfortable. I went ahead and did the review for them this once, but they should be stopped before pressuring someone else. My concern is purchasing at a.discount without disclosures and not sharing the info - I am then breaking federal law. I simply do not want to post on Amazon. This seller went on to tell me that I need.to.find a way to let all the Sellers here know that I do not post on Amazon so they don't waste time sending me their products. (More or less words)
