Get Paid To Write Reviews For AmazonDid you know that you can actually get paid to write reviews for Amazon?

Chances are, probably not – because despite it’s amazing earning potential & easiness to do, not many people do seem to know about it… But it’s a fact that there are actually may people (myself included) that earn a full-time living by writing short, simple reviews for companies like Amazon.

And in this blog post, I’m going to show you how it works, how much money you can make & most importantly, how you can get started with it for yourself.

So if you’ve got any interest in writing reviews for money then be sure to read this blog post right to the very end because it’s going to contain literally everything that you need to know.

Who Can Get Paid To Write Reviews?

Many methods of earning money online are restricted to certain countries, age groups or demographics, but the good news about this one, in particular, is that it can be done by anybody.

That’s right – it doesn’t matter where you live, how old you are, whether you’re male, female, or even a robot… You’ll still have the opportunity available to you to earn money for writing reviews.

The only thing that may differ depending on where you’re located is how you’ll be paid because some countries are limited to what means of payment they can accept.

For example, some countries do not have access to PayPal… But it’s typically no big deal as you can often just choose another payment method instead, such as cheque or direct bank transfer, etc.

And if you’re wondering about experience, well, you don’t need it.

Experience at writing (or writing reviews in particular) is not necessary. You can do this (and still earn money by doing it) even if you’re never written a single review before in your life.

So, basically, it’s good news all around on this front. If you came here wondering “can I get paid to write reviews?” then the quick answer is yes you can (and pretty darn good money too).

It’s true that paying for product reviews on Amazon is against their terms, and rightly so. There’s nothing more annoying for a customer than trying to find honest reviews & getting nothing but skewed “opinions” from paid reviewers.

But with so much competition on Amazon this doesn’t stop product vendors from still seeking out paid reviews.

So, you might be wondering, is it legal to be on the other end of the spectrum?

Is it legal to get paid to write reviews?

Well, the good news for you is that in this blog post I am not talking about writing paid reviews ON Amazon itself. I’m talking about writing reviews of products from Amazon, on other websites.

There’s a big difference, as you’ll soon see… And not only is my method legal, but it’s also actively encouraged by Amazon themselves. In fact, it’s Amazon that will be paying you.

So the answer is YES, it’s legal.

But with regards to writing paid reviews ON Amazon & the legalities of that in terms of getting paid from product vendors to write misleading & potentially false reviews… I don’t know about that.

Chances are, probably not… And either way, I don’t condone doing it.

The reviews you’ll be writing (and getting paid for writing) through my method on this page will all be honest reviews because the more honest they are, the more you’ll stand to earn.

How Much Money Can You Make Writing Reviews?

Honestly, the earning potential is completely unlimited with this method. The sky truly is the limit & it’s simply a case of how hard you’re willing to work.

The harder you work, the more you can earn.

And what’s more is that once you’ve got a few reviews under your belt your earnings can even start to become passive too, allowing you to essentially “compound your results” and scale up your income.

In fact, some Amazon review writers earn as much as 5-figures per month, often whilst just working part-time (though, it should be noted that initially, they will have worked very hard).

Amazon Earnings Example

Some, such as Shawndra Russell from Make a Living Writing even earn as much as 6-figures by writing online.

Pretty crazy stuff, right?

But what’s craziest about this method is that it’s really not difficult to do. As I mentioned further up in this post, literally anybody can do it.

Now I know what you’re likely thinking…

There must be a catch, right?

Well, yes, there kind of is… But it’s not really a bad one, and it’s one that anybody can overcome with a little persistence. The “catch” is simply that you won’t begin earning instantly.

It’s not a FAST method for earning money (there’s no such thing).

FAST methods for making money are known as scams.

Initially, it will take quite a bit of effort, and that effort will have to be made without any immediate reward… But the good news is that if you do stick at it, you WILL make money.

Here’s proof of that:

Unfortunately, however, it seems that most people these days expect things to happen “instantly” & so despite this being a fantastic way to earn, it’s often very overlooked.

But, that’s up to you. The ball’s in your court on that front.

How To Get Paid To Write Reviews

First, what I want to once again stress here is that you are not going to be writing FAKE product reviews. I don’t condone that & in all honesty, I’m totally against it.

You shouldn’t be trying to earn money by tricking people.

Instead, what I’m talking about here is getting paid to write honest & helpful reviews of products from Amazon (or just about any website for that matter).

And you’re going to learn how you can leverage a method known as affiliate marketing to begin earning consistent commissions for many years to come from every review that you write.

Affiliate marketing happens to be the exact same way that I earn most of my own money online, so in short, you’re basically learning about the exact same way I earn my own money.

It’s a very good & very powerful method & it’s a method that you can scale to any level that you desire.

You see, through affiliate marketing you get the opportunity to promote products or services for companies & earn commissions if anybody clicks via your promotion & makes a purchase.

How it works is that you simply get your own unique link to the products or services that you’re promoting.

This means that when you share the link online, any clicks on it are tracked back to you. So if you share it & somebody clicks it & then buys something, that sale is tracked back to you.

Most importantly, this means that you get paid for that sale.

Simple enough, right?

Now, affiliate marketing is actually a really popular way to make money online, however despite its popularity, many of the people that try it out never actually make any money.


Because they go about it the wrong way. They do things such as send their links to friends or family, or pay for advertising, or just actively try to push their links onto people.

That’s not the way to do it. There’s a better way.

The better way is to simply write a review of whatever it is that you’re promoting & then let the buyers come to you.

The benefit of this method is that there’s no messing around with selling & telling or anything like that. You just publish a review, then people come to it, read it, decide to make a purchase & then you get paid a commission in return.

You see, when you publish content online, search engines such as Google & Bing automatically discover it & list it within their results as an option for people to click on whenever they search for something related to it.

So as an example, let’s say I decided to look for a review of a product called Gorilla Tape before I bought it.

I’d head to Google and search for something like “gorilla tape review” (naturally).

And the result that pops up in the listings & catches my eye is a post from some called “thetechnologyman” as shown below:

Google Search Results

So I click the link to find out more info & I’m presented with a review from a guy who compares Gorilla tape against another tape & concludes that the Gorilla tape is better.

The important point here, however, is that he then provides a link for you to purchase the Gorilla tape on Amazon… And guess what? The link he provides is an Amazon affiliate link.

Take a look:

Review Conclusion Example

This means that whenever somebody decides to look for a review of Gorilla tape, checks out his post & then clicks his link to purchase it, he’ll get paid a commission from Amazon.

All from a small, one-time effort of writing the review.

And what’s more is that he’ll continue to earn those commissions for many years to come – well, for as long as he decides to keep his review published, or for as long as the product exists.

Amazing, right?

And literally anybody can do this. If you’ve ever used a product & formed an opinion about it, you can write a review about it & earn money by helping other people that are looking to purchase it.

The Best Place To Get Started

The best place that you can get started with this method (in my opinion) is a place called Wealthy Affiliate, which is where you’ll get all of the tools & training you need to get started.

      • Hay sorry tried to read through properly, just to make sure I am understanding the sequence correctly, so if I create a website where I write reviews about products I’ve used then attach affiliate links to the products the goal is over time sites like google will start pulling me up when people look up reviews about that product and then after reading my web page review they will use my link to purchase the item from Amazon or other related stores?

  1. Hi, do you review items you just happen to use and like or do you receive free items to review? And if so, where do you get them?

  2. What a load of absolute scammy, feel-good *swear word removed*. You need a platform and an audience to make money from affiliate marketing, *swear word removed*, not this simplistic “you can do it, too, if you work hard enough!” shit. Also:

    “Unfortunately, however, it seems that most people these days expect things to happen “instantly” & so despite this being a fantastic way to earn, it’s often very overlooked.”

    Literally, *swear word removed* off. Working without pay is called slavery, not entitlement.

    Somehow, you made affiliate marketing sound like a *swear word removed* MLM scam with your platitudes and oversimplifications. Next time, be honest from the start about what you’re actually shilling and save people from having to read this schlock.

    • The fact that you’ve chosen to hide behind a fake name speaks volumes. Just another internet troll who wouldn’t post such disgusting comments if his/her identity was attached. The reality is that affiliate marketing IS as simple as I made it out to be. How do I know? Because I do it day in, day out, and I do nothing different than what I mentioned.

      Furthermore, I provide my content completely free of charge. Nobody forced you to read the post. At least I am doing something productive with my spare time rather than spending my spare moments being a troll online.

  3. I’m actually here for the comments. Affiliate marketing is as simple as you make it sound, but patience is the key. A lot of folks get on here and burn out from the negativity they get from people they tell about it. Most family and “friends” call it a scam. Why? Because they don’t want you to get out of their comfort zone, or beyond the limitations they have put upon you in their minds. This is it. This is the only life you will have. Either you tell them to leave you alone, or you say nothing until you get where you want to be. The surprise on their faces will tell you everything you need to know about their opinion of you and your limitations. There is no cavalry, nor is there a white knight going to ride in and save the day. You are on your own. DO what makes you happy, because you will die alone, and you know you’d rather not have to say,”If only I’d done this or that.” Be true to yourself and trust in your abilities to make your dreams come true, because you are the only one who can. That’s my rant. My name is Ben. I am a writer, Courier, Songwriter and musician, a dog dad, and a dreamer- but in the end-I still understand it’s all up to me how I will be remembered. Take the chance. Win, lose, or draw-you can still look back with pride that you did that. You made the decision, and you followed through. The only opinion that matters at the end of the day is the one you have of yourself. Make it a good one.

  4. I just read this page and appreciate the well-rounded reviews and comments that you posted. I’m strongly considering beginning the process because what I read all rings true,
    ( including the angry skeptical one.)
    I found this page organically because after writing a review for a product I had purchased on Overstock I thought, ‘I like writing reviews. Is there a way I could make money doing this?’ I’ve written on and off all my life, hometown interviews, critiquing movies, and many reviews of products. But never knew the breakdown of legitimately making money reviewing products.
    Thanks for the information. I intend to research further and give it a try.

    • Sounds awesome, Margaret. I’m glad you found my post insightful & I hope you take action on it as I’m confident you’ll find it rewarding 🙂

  5. l agree that this Affiliate marketing is the best way to go because you can know how to send links of the desired company and get paid for it over time.

  6. Thank you for spreading the knowledge! I appreciate you. ^_^

    I tried affiliate marketing a while ago, but I stopped due to a lack of results. I was so bummed. Reading your post gives me the motivation to try again. 😀

  7. I agree with a lot of what this article has to say, but there is truth to the angry rant as well. Your review will come up in Google, but it takes a while of writing constant content, making connections to other sites, search engine optimization, and other factors before you rank high enough on google to be seen. If your review is on page 201 and the average google user doesn’t make it past page 2, you’ve got a way to go.
    Focus your site on a niche, make your site fast-loading, visually appealing, and relevant, put out regular content that stays with your niche, build a following, become an SEO champ, and be willing to wait a year or more while you improve your rankings. Once you have the rankings to show up on page one or two, then your sales will jump.
