Support » Plugin: Widgets for Amazon Reviews » Not ideal with Amazon KDP/POD or Kindle items

  • EDIT 3: Better and better. “OK. Maybe you should try the paid packages. Sorry, free operation is scaled to smaller companies who can’t yet afford paid features and therefore they able to compromise :(” — One must love the attitude.
    Sorry pal, can’t go any further than that…

    = = = = =

    EDIT 2: seems that it doesn’t work for Amazon KDP/POD or Kindle items, or if it does, it’s a manual process for each item, which is rather clumsy and time-consuming. It’s probably much better for resellers on marketplaces.
    Changing to 4 stars.

    = = = = =

    EDIT: the problem has not changed this far — see below —, but the support is responsive enough. Changing to 3 stars.

    With several hundreds of titles, we wanted to try out the plug for Amazon reviews for our publications. First off, the free plugin allows only one entry. In a single plan ($65/y), you can add up to 3 Amazon reviews. With the pro plan ($125/y) it’s up to 5 reviews. So you’ll need the ultimate ($349/y) to have more than 5 reviews, which is crazy knowing that we have only one website, and that we’ll never use all the other functionalities, i.e, Google reviews, etc.
    And this plugin is called “Widgets for Amazon Reviews”, seriously?

    That’s exactly what I said.
    – Free of charge: 1 widget, i.e., one Amazon review for one product
    – $65/y: 3 widgets, i.e., 3 Amazon reviews for 3 products
    – $125/y: 5 widgets, i.e., 5 Amazon reviews for 5 products
    – If you have > 5 products, like most publishers, you’ll need the ultimate at $349/y
    – 30% off is only for the first year, then $349/y…

    Please connect your publisher URL.

    If you do that, all the reviews from the books you are connected to will be listed, you don’t need to connect all the books’ linsks.

    With this plugin, you can connect 1 Amazon URL and download the last 10 reviews you got on Amazon.

    There is no limitation in the number of reviews you can download from the platforms if you subscribe on our website Trustindex.io.

    The number of URLs from the same Platform is limited though.

    Again, that’s what I said: free plugin = one Amazon product/URL.
    Unlimited reviews for one Amazon product/URL is still one Amazon product/URL.

    Hello @johnmatthias ,

    One Amazon Author Profile URL brings together several book products. So if you want to manage many publications, you should connect your publisher (Amazon) URL.

    “And this plugin is called “Widgets for Amazon Reviews”, seriously?”
    Yes, this plugin works with Amazon revirews. What do you think we call it?

    About prices:
    – find a cheaper one and I will arrange it for you at a price.
    – in PRO package you can manage 5 profiles, each can handle 5 Amazon URLs. So you can show 5*5=25 Amazon book reviews in PRO package, OR you can handle 100+ book reviews if you attach your Author profiles. You can do it in SINGLE package as well. This is not a matter for debate. that is a fact

    About discount:
    What makes you think 30% only comes down from the first year? We regret that you scored us based on such half-information.

    Feel free to write to us to support@trustindex.io if you have further questions,

    Hi Tom,

    That is not entirely true.

    First of all, there has never been a publisher profile on Amazon. That simply does not exist.

    Then, as a publisher, (1) we do not have access to our authors’ profile(s) — which belongs to the authors and not to the publisher —, and if we did, we’d be featuring books that we don’t necessarily publish, or want, or are allowed to feature on our site ; (2) we have dozens of authors, which would require the Pro package, but we would have issues filtering out books that are on the author’s profile but not published by us – see (1). Then, (3) we can’t create an author profile for someone else, that is not legal.

    The ONLY way is to display Amazon products, which Trustindex does, but the set up is PER PRODUCT based (that is, in our context as, again, we can’t scrape from/ enter an author profile and Amazon does not have publisher profiles). So, for every book, we’d have to enter the book’s URL, then go though the painful process of setting up each widget.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but there’s no duplicate process for an existing widget — I may be wrong here as we’ve never gone that far with the free plugin. This is an example of a Amazon product/book: https://www.amazon.fr/Histoire-loligarchie/dp/2491861097/. Do let me know if you can scrape more products/books from this URL.

    In the Pro package, you can have 5 profiles, and based on what I said earlier, that corresponds to 5 products, that’s it. 5 products with each 1 billion reviews is still equal to 5 products.

    Anyway, I’m glad you’ve come up here to answer my questions. So, I’ll change my review to 3 stars.

    In this case, you’re right, we recommend the Pro or the Ultimater package. We can offer you a 30% discount, also we have a “Refer your friends” function which means you can invite your friends to be a Trustindex user and if they subscribe we can provide you a free year subscription after each successful subcription.

    In order to import a book’s reviews you need to use an Amazon link like this: https://www.amazon.it/sp?seller=A2J0MITA2KJVTV
    As you said this process needs to be done with every book if you’d like to see its reviews.

    In the Pro package you can add up to 5 domains, in each domain’s site you can add 5 URL-s from the same platform (Amazon/Googl/…).
    All the reviews will be imported from all 5 URL-s, so 5 products with each 1 billion reviews, still equals 5 products.

    Thanks for the better review!

    Hi Lídia,

    URLs such as this https://www.amazon.it/sp?seller=A2J0MITA2KJVTV is for booksellers, bookshops, all types resellers, but not publishers on Amazon KDP or Kindle.

    Anyways, thanks for your help.

    Sorry, This is a correct example of a publisher URL: https://www.amazon.com/Stephanie-Grisham/e/B09GSWTRF9

    That is not a publisher, but an author.

    OK. Maybe you should try the paid packages. Sorry, free operation is scaled to smaller companies who can’t yet afford paid features and therefore they able to compromise 🙁
