Social launches are always a great strategy, but the days of excessively using the $1 and $2 deeply discounted coupons codes for ranking or to gain product reviews are coming to a near end. Amazon has already pointed out with their new TOS changes that this form of manipulating their system is being monitored and sellers will be penalized.

Are you allowed to ask for feedback from Amazon customers? Can you put a note requesting it in the package if you sell MF or email to follow up?

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.

Thank you greatly for your support Tiana! I’m working with my great group of Amazon FBA course pilot students now. 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.

Thanks,
Pilar
