Bad reviews are always the biggest headache for Amazon sellers.

Step 1: Push the review off 1st page!

Before any efforts of removing, make it disappear from your 1st page first!

Sellers may want to vote their good reviews, to make them rank higher and bury the bad ones. However, since Sep 2020, votes can hardly move a review up. Sellers find themselves ending up voting for nothing...

But the good news is, there's still one last way: the Review Cleaner Software. It can push down a review safely and efficiently, at a success rate of almost 100%. 

Step 2: Check the Review Carefully

Don't panic when you saw a new 1 star review.

Take a deep breath and read that review carefully. Think about these 3 questions:

  1. Is this review from your competitor or a real buyer?
  2. What makes the buyer unsatisfied?
  3. Did he/she say anything against Amazon's ToS?

Step 3: Report to Amazon Seller Support

Sometimes you could find buyers talking about issues not related to your product quality in their reviews, like slow shipping, or using dirty words that are against Amazon's ToS.

If that is the case, you could simply contact Amazon seller support to get the review removed. 

If you find the review was written by an evil competitor instead of a real buyer, you can report this issue to Amazon seller support too. However, the chance of getting it removed is very low, unless you have strong evidence to prove this review was from a competitor.

If you didn't manage to get the competitor's review removed, you can jump to step 4 directly.

Most of the cases, negative reviews are from real buyers. In order to get those reviews removed, we must contact the buyer directly.

Step 4: Contact the Buyer by Personal Email

In order to contact the buyer, we need to find out his/her contact info first.

You can use zonboost to extract that buyer's personal email. Then contact him/her directly. They are the only provider we found so far which can extract any buyer's personal email with a 100% success rate.

We have a detailed guide here to teach you how to match reviews with orders and contact buyers effectively for reviews removal.

Sometimes we even managed to have the buyer change it from a 1-star to a 5-star review using this method!

Step 5: Reply to The Review

If you closely follow the steps we take to contact buyers, you have a high chance to get that bad review removed.

If not, please reply to that review immediately to show your proactive customer service. Then quickly move to step 5.
