Hello Richard, Thank you for your comments.

Hello Anna,

The quote below is direct from Amazon’s Terms of Service for sellers:

“You may request feedback from a buyer, however you may not pay or offer any incentive to a buyer for either providing or removing feedback.”

You can find more information about this under Amazon Seller Help –> Reviews and Feedback.


Hi Pilar,

Wow, this article is great! Detailed and informative – such a great resource for Amazon sellers!

Really excited for your course launch coming up. I can’t wait to follow along as you grow to continued success.

Take care!

By end of year, I should have something available for those on the waiting list for the final version of the course. Make sure you are signed up to my newsletter on my website to receive further information when it is ready to launch!

Best wishes.

Hi Pilar
Great article. Will you be having any meetups in the tri-state area where people can discuss Amazon FBA and related subjects.

Hello Michael,

At the moment, I’m traveling overseas and have no immediate plans for a meet-up in the tri-state area. If anything changes, I will certainly let those interested be aware by email. Make sure you’re signed up to my newsletter on my website. That’s where I normally send out any news.



Very good article Pilar. Do you offer a coarse on how to spot trending items?

Hi Rudy,

I’m glad you enjoyed the article. I’m currently working with students in my Amazon FBA Pilot course. I have yet to put together a course for trending items. If anything, I will let people know of upcoming courses via email. You can sign up to it via my website.

All the Best,
