How to Earn More Amazon Reviews with Review Automation

It’s today’s ecommerce default: online customers rely on product reviews in order to make a decision about whether or not to buy. In fact, 70% of consumers are likely to purchase a product with the best ratings and reviews over a lower-priced product with little to no reviews. 

One of the biggest issues Amazon sellers face is gaining more (positive) reviews on their products. Years ago, it was a lot simpler. You could give away a few products for free and in exchange, customers would leave you a positive review. Not anymore. 

So, how are you supposed to get more customers to review your products on Amazon? With Jungle Scout’s Review Automation tool! Review Automation takes away the stress of manually requesting reviews and gives you the best chance of earning more reviews.   

Let’s dive in to learn about what Review Automation is, how it works, and the benefits it has to offer your Amazon business.


What is Review Automation? 

A concern for many Amazon sellers is getting more reviews on their product listings. Review Automation is a tool on Jungle Scout that helps solve this problem by sending out automated review requests to customers who have purchased your products. 

If you’ve been selling on Amazon for a while, you know that you now have an option to request a review on the order detail page in Seller Central. It’s a great feature for sellers, but it can become very time-consuming and tedious to manage, especially if you have hundreds of orders. 



Once you click on the “Request a Review” button, Amazon will send a pre-written email to that customer, requesting a product review from them. You cannot customize this email in any way. Here is an example of a product request email:


Review Automation automatically sends out eligible review requests for you, so you don’t have to go through each one of your orders and manually do it yourself. It is truly a set-it-and-forget-it system. 

Once Review Automation is turned on, you’ll never miss an opportunity to gain a product review.


Why use Review Automation?

Sellers use Review Automation for two reasons: to earn more valuable product reviews and to save time. 

As I mentioned earlier, manually requesting reviews from your customers takes up much of your valuable time that can be spent on other parts of your business. Requesting reviews is such a vital part of seller work but the way Amazon has it set up is time-consuming and can be frustrating. 

You need to manually click into each order and click “Request a Review,” then you have to go back and do it for the next orders. If you have a lot of orders in your account, this becomes quite the process. Clicking through each and every order is not the best use of any seller’s time.

When I time myself, it takes roughly 16 seconds to manually request just one review in Seller Central. Imagine if you had 20, 50, or even 100 orders to go through—that time really adds up! 

You’re busy enough as an Amazon seller. The more time you can get back, the better. Use this time saved to focus on other parts of your business such as listing optimization or product research. As a seller who uses the tool, I don’t even need to think about it. Once you turn it on, Review Automation sends out review requests automatically each day. 

When you’ve had Review Automation set up and running for a while, it will even tell you how much time you have saved by automating your requests. 

How to use Review Automation

Setting up Review Automation is simple. If you haven’t connected your Jungle Scout account to your Seller Central account, you will need to do this before turning on Review Automation. 

Step 1: In Jungle Scout, go to the menu bar, click on Marketing, then click on Review Automation. 


Step 2: Click “Connect to Amazon & Get Access.”



Step 3: Choose your region and marketplace. 


Step 4: Sign in to Amazon. Enter an account nickname and your Seller Central email. 


Step 5: Authorize Jungle Scout and your account will be connected!



After you connect your account, you will need to wait for Jungle Scout to sync all of your Amazon data. Once your data is synced, simply go to the Review Automation tool and turn it on! That’s it! Click the button and you’re set. 


Soon, Jungle Scout will be sending out automated review request emails so you never have to manually do it again. Once the tool populates with your Amazon data, you will be able to see the status of your orders and review requests, so you can keep track of your customer reviews. 


It’s 100% compliant with Amazon’s Terms of Service

When using Review Automation, you never have to worry about breaking any of Amazon’s rules. Since Jungle Scout is simply automating Amazon’s review requests for you, it is 100% compliant with Amazon’s review policy.

Review Automation will tell you which orders have been sent a review request, so you don’t accidentally request a review twice.
