If you have managed to read our Got Suspended Clients blog about rogue sellers and their methods of ruining your reputation, then you may already know what they are capable of and how cruel they can be. One of their insidious methods is filling your account with either positive or negative reviews which can harm not only your reputation as a seller but also your Amazon seller account. In these circumstances, the future of your account won’t be as bright as it could be, because an Amazon seller suspension is not what the sellers expect from selling on Amazon.

Put yourself in Amazon’s shoes. You have loads of sellers who make use of your platform to sell goods, and therefore, you expect them to provide good customer service. You can’t get past the fact that some sellers will take monumental measures only to keep selling on Amazon, even if it requires rogue actions. This is the reason you continually monitor them, and if someone disobeys the policies you established, you’ll solve the issue “amicably” by having their seller accounts suspended.

Now let’s get back to reality: you are not Amazon; you are a seller who is ready to go to great lengths in order to sell with confidence. How do you understand which review is real, and which one is fake? If you are faster than Amazon, you will manage to detect the fake reviews and report on this to Amazon. Just be one step ahead of your competitors, and you’ll never find your seller account suspended.

Ways to Detect Fake Reviews:

  1. Before calling upon special services, you can do it on your own. The first thing you should be careful about is the time period within which reviews are being posted. It’s general knowledge that receiving the reviews may take longer than a day or two, for example, weeks and even months.
  2. Who are your customers? Look at their profile and their activities. According to veteran Amazon sellers, people who leave five starts under different products are likely to get paid for the fake reviews they’re posting or are simply robots.
  3. Length; this is what also matters. If your customer decided to spend their time writing a review, they will definitely go in detail and explain what was wrong with the purchase. If you receive something short and uninformative, it is more likely to be fake. Bogus reviews are often grammatically incorrect which is also very important.
  4. If you still hesitate and can’t identify a fake review, there are numerous services like Fakespot, ReviewMeta, and others who are waiting for you out there.

In short, people are capable of anything that can boost their business, and therefore, fill their pockets with money. What we can do here at Got Suspended Clients is catch them red-handed and report them to Amazon. This will not only eliminate the risk of getting suspended but also will help honest sellers end up in the clear. Nothing is stronger than an Amazon seller equipped with e-commerce knowledge.
