“93% of buyers say that reviews impact their purchase decision”
This means that if positive feedback can improve sales, negative feedback can do exactly the opposite. And this is NOT good for business.
Considering the importance, this blog post will cover all aspects of seller feedback removal.
Note that, we will only be focusing on “SELLER FEEDBACK”
So, without wasting any more time, let’s look into a few solutions:
Sometimes the buyer will need some instructions about removing the feedback. It is cumbersome but a delight for the seller.
Note: If you cannot find the “remove option” then the 60 days period has expired.
Sadly enough, Amazon does not remove feedback of any kind. The seller has to resolve the issue on his own.
There is also a piece of good news though, there are some situations when Amazon will strike-through.
We have sorted out a list of situations when Amazon will do so:
If you believe that the feedback you received falls under any of the above-mentioned categories go to the feedback manager page.
However, there’s another solution to get feedback removed. This is by contacting the buyer directly. Let’s see how you can do that.
Do you know that Amazon has given buyers a superpower?
They can remove feedback. The best possible way is to get in touch with the buyer. Resolve their concerns, and politely ask them to revoke their feedback.
….you never know when buyers may have a change of heart.
This may sound unfair to a few sellers. But, there are times when a buyer leaves feedback that has everything to do with Amazon.
Take this into account, the seller fulfilled his promise of sending a fur coat but Amazon delivered the product late. Now, the buyer has left feedback that says “arrived late”. Amazon will not delete this comment but will put a line on it and it will not count against your metrics.
Unlike any other feedback, seller feedback has a direct impact on your sales.
“If you don’t already know, Amazon marketplace is highly seller cynical”
Let’s discuss various reasons why you need to get negative seller feedback removed:
Negative seller feedback has a direct impact on your rating.
You can get away with negative product feedback, but, seller feedback can get messy. As we all know, ratings are the major factor in getting chosen for Amazon BUY BOX, so we recommend that you don’t take any risks.
Let’s back up a bit, the seller feedback rating is not the only factor you should be worried about. ODR (order defect rate) is another essential element that determines the eligibility of your Amazon selling privileges.
To sum it up for you, Amazon states that an ODR above 1% can make you lose your selling privileges.
Let’s take an in-depth look at ODR and the variables that affect it:
Here’s a quick definition:
The Order Defect Rate (ODR) is a performance metric that Amazon uses to rate the seller's customer service standards. The ODR is calculated based on the number of times the negative metrics (mentioned below) were incurred divided by the number of overall orders received within a given period of time.

To be precise, there are three major elements that have a profound effect on ODR:
It is a percentage accumulated after calculating the total number of negative feedback you have received.
Note: If the buyer has removed feedback, it still takes 48 hours for Amazon to alter the metrics. Thus, it will be visible on your profile until then.
The following checklist describes the type of claims that impact your ODR:
Good news? There are some claims that have no impact on your ODR:
Note: The claim will be removed from your account if you win the claim
This may sound very similar to A-Z guarantee claims but the credit card issuer makes the final decision instead of Amazon.
Possible problems associated with this claim include:
Note: To communicate with the buyer, check the details on the “communicate with buyer’s page on seller central”
