Oh, chill out with your exclamation points and your talk of 20 dollar family member reviews. If you can get someone to part with the cash, more power to you.iBAConference said:Doing reviews takes away staff time from our core business, thus it's not going to be cheap.

Lucas, paying for a customer review is against Amazon's Terms of Service, absolutely.LucasCWheeler said:Maybe someone with more experience can answer this, as I'm new to the boards and self-publishing, but I was under the impression that paying for reviews was against Amazon's Terms of Service and could get your account banned. Am I misunderstanding something?
He said he was new to the boards and was asking a question. As a supposed "business" you might want to drop the snark. You're coming off like an annoying scam artist now.iBAConference said:How has this not been answered?
Why is it you think paying for reviews would get a user banned, when Amazon itself has likely the most notorious pay-for-reviews scheme ever conceived (the "Verified" reviewer)?
It may or may not be a EULA violation. The buyer accepts the risk for this. Amazon (like all companies) changes their terms all the time and without notice.
As for us, we'll write you a review, but it will indeed be a review, not a rubber stamp. If you think there's something about this that's unethical, we'd disagree, but that's up to you. Maybe you're lucky enough to find people to give you quality reviews of your work for free.
