Dear Amazon Team,
Greetings. This is Amazon seller（店铺名）. We have received the notice of manipulating Amazon customer reviews on （日期）. Thank you for giving us a chance to state our detailed plans regarding this policy issue. We are really sorry about our ignorance and would like to sincerely apologize for the terrible mistake we made.
We believe the reason why this has happened is we hired the new staff to our company, who is lacking of the rules and policies when sell on amazon.We failed to train our new staff understand Amazon prohibited policies.
1. The method we used to manipulate reviews: we sent email to customer and stated that we hope he can help us update the review on (日期). After checking the correspondence, we feel really ashamed.
The message our new staff sent to customeris as follows:(order ID：XXX)
Thanks for your response. We will give you a refund. If you are satisfied with my service, would you mind helping me update the review?
2. We don’t have any contact information, identifying information, document for any third parties because we didn’t obtain prohibited reviews through third parties. All bad reviews were updated by buyer-seller message when we helped customer tosolve the problems before.
(Please find attachments to see the apology letters and the details of order id, contact information and remaining comments.)
We have taken these actions to resolve the problem:
1. We have read the Amazon “Selling Policies and Seller Code of Conduct” and “Customer product reviews” Policy carefully. We have understood that we cannot ask for positive reviews, ask for reviews only from buyers who had a positive experience, or ask a reviewer to change or remove their review.
2. We have checked all the buyer-seller messages and sincerely apologize for this behavior to the buyers. If buyers have any problem need us to solve, we will reply the email and give the best solution within 24 hours.
3. We have organized a meeting to make our existed staff to learn lessons from this problem. Meanwhile, enhance their knowledge of amazon policies.
The steps we have taken to prevent product review manipulation in the future:
1. We will thoroughly review all Amazon Policies and Agreements and arrange the experienced staff to enhance the new staff training. Moreover, we have setup rules in the company that all of our emails must be carefully reviewed and would not violate any Amazon policies before sending to customers.
2. Learn how to seek the help for great amazon seller support team. We have encouraged our employees to contact the seller support for help when they have any confuse of new policies so that we can provide the good service to customers and strictly obey all the amazon’s policies.
3. We will ship all the items via FBA service, which we realize FBA can better the shopping experience for customers. Let customer can happy shopping on Amazon.
4. We will attend the Early Reviewer Program to hear the buyer’s voice. And we will value the customer’s opinions and upgrade our products. Continue to improve the supply system. Give high priority to the orders and distribute the received order as soon as possible. Customer satisfaction is our top priority, so does the amazon policy.
We have carried these plans; we believe we would not make the mistake like before. we will try our best to do it. Keep learning from “Selling Policies and Seller Code of Conduct”.
