Are there fakes on Amazon?

There are many products on Amazon that are owned by Amazon or directly sold by manufacturers on Amazon, which is a guarantee of authenticity. There are also private businesses on Amazon, but the review process is more strict, and the merchant reputation score is very clear, you pay attention to check goods and merchant reviews, identify the behavior of brushing, can avoid buying fake goods. If you unfortunately receive fake goods or are not satisfied with the quality of the product, you can also contact Amazon customer service or the seller, Amazon/seller will check and return the full payment to you. The committee members did not receive the goods when they shopped at the seller’s home for several times. However, as soon as they contacted the seller, they received a reply and all the products would be sent out again or the money would be refunded. The shopping experience was really good.

Have you ever noticed the phenomenon of swiping reviews on Amazon? Amazon gives priority to products with high reviews and high sales, so swiping reviews has become a money-making strategy for e-commerce. However, Amazon’s fake reviews are not just copy-and-paste, but increasingly difficult to identify. I believe that everyone is usually as a buyer to visit Amazon, so the committee to sort out how to identify fake reviews, to avoid thunder.

  • 1. Sort Amazon reviews by date

Generally, “popular comments” will be at the front of the list, and the popular comments may also be generated, so you can set the review order to “latest”, and compare various aspects.

  • 2. Read negative reviews

Generally, fake reviews require high scores and favorable reviews, so low scores are more valuable to help you decide whether to buy the product.

  • 3. Use the search bar

The search bar at the top of the comments helps you find reviews for specific features. If a particular feature is what you’re looking for, such as “lightweight” or “pet hair” on a vacuum cleaner, using the search bar to filter reviews is more useful.

  • 4. Beware of multi-picture comments

Because brush praise on the length of text and pictures are required, ordinary consumers will rarely seriously take pictures to praise, so a product with a lot of pictures of the time to pay attention to it.

  • 5. Check Amazon seller reviews

In addition to buyer reviews, seller reviews are also a consideration. You can check whether the seller is authoritative, as well as their after-sales service information.

  • 6. Don’t ignore lesser known brands

Many sellers on Amazon may come from small-brand startups, but that doesn’t mean their products are necessarily bad. This time in addition to reference comments, you can also do some understanding of the background of the brand, perhaps the treasure brand.

  • 7. Don’t just rely on Amazon’s choices

Amazon’s Choice may also be a spawn, but the other references above are also important.

  • 8. Turn to fake review filtering sites or tools

The committee has two websites to recommend, Reviewmeta and Fakespot, to help detect fake reviews.

(Amazon Reviewmeta test results page)

The result of Reviewmeta is quite intuitive. You just need to open its official website and put your product link, such as Amazon’s product link, in it. It will automatically screen out the percentage of fraudulent reviews and adjust the product score after removing abnormal reviews. The juicer, for example, had 82% of reviews deemed “not neutral,” which would change the rating from 4.8 to 4.6.

(Fakespot displays the results page)

Fakespot is actually A Chrome plugin. When you install it, you can open amazon’s website and see the ratings of different products. The ratings are a-F, where A indicates 100% genuine reviews and F indicates that the product’s reviews are not trustworthy. Not only can amazon products be tested, but Ebay babies can also use it to check the reliability of product reviews.

How do I track Amazon Prices

Children who shop in Amazon will also find that the price of Amazon goods is always changing, and the price of the same goods often goes up and down, so it is easy to “buy and lose” if they don’t know the rules. The committee found two websites that track prices, CamelCamelCamel and Keepa:


(Price changes for a mouthwash on CamelCamelCamel)

Camelcamelcamel is free to check the prices and trends of different products on Amazon and third-party merchants on its website (registration required), set low price alerts, and download a browser plug-in to use.

(Price change of a mixer on Keepa)

Keepa is also a good price tracking tool, similar to CamelCamelCamel, can also view a comprehensive price history chart, set price alerts, more rich data content, and also supports browser plug-in installation.
