Amazon’s Feedback Impact and Guidelines for Removal
Amazon’s feedback rates the seller’s performance on a scale of 1 to 5. Amazon shoppers gain a lot of things about past customers’ buying experience, especially shipping, packaging, and customer services. The buyers can submit a single feedback per order within 90 days after the delivery. Feedbacks display in a percentage and star rating format on Amazon.
How does feedback impact Amazon sellers?
Amazon policies and guidelines are strict but it is for the betterment of customer experience to make them come back. If a seller is unable to offer the great shopping experience that Amazon expects then their account can get suspended. Feedback is a great way of evaluating buyers’ experience with the seller. Feedback can impact sellers in the following way –
Affect ‘Buy Box’ wins
The Buy Box winner is ranked high and will make more sales. In Amazon’s Buy Box set of rules, feedback is a primary metric for determining order defect rate. More positive feedback than your competitors can help Amazon rank you high when customers purchase products via the Buy Box section.
Choose ‘other sellers on Amazon’
If the buyers don’t use the Buy Box section then they will opt for ‘Other Sellers on Amazon. Here they will notice your feedback rating and possibly choose a seller with the highest rating.
Impact account status
Order defect rate has to be not more than 1%. Amazon can strip your seller’s rights if this performance metric goes above the required percentage. Positive feedback is the key to protect the seller’s account.
Gain competitive edge
Today, shoppers make use of reviews and ratings to make a buying decision. Feedback is an assessment of your reputation as a seller. Poor Amazon seller feedback will push the shopper towards your competitor, which is increasing every day.
Take feedback seriously!
