Amazon’s new email policy.

What exactly is happening with Amazon’s recent change regarding follow up emails and reviews? Amazon came out saying that sellers are allowed to send one email per order to request a customer review. What you need to know about this is, if you have automated emails that follow up with your buyers, you need to make sure that no more than one of those emails is requesting a review. It doesn’t say that you are limited to just one email per order, just one email regarding a review per order. To get the full break down on this new change and how you can adjust your approach accordingly, make sure to listen to this episode of The Amazing Seller!
