Get More Reviews!

What is a Feedback Rebate?

It's a rebate customers can redeem by leaving an honest review.

Customers get a discount, you get a review, everyone wins! It's honest, easy, and practically free!

 

According to the recent UC Berkeley study: 

Feedback Rebates generate Unbiased reviews and increase sales by 30%! 

 “Our main findings are first, that RFF (rebate for review) feature is chosen by higher quality sellers, implying that it can serve as a signal of quality. Second, sales of an item are about 30% higher when the seller chooses the rebate option, suggesting that buyers understand the signaling effect of the RFF feature and act on it. Third, RFF induces buyers to write more detailed feedback but does not bias the feedback toward positive feedback.”

FAQ

What about fake reviews?

We send your customers a unique review link for each rebate offer. Without this link no one can leave a review. That’s right, there is no review-form for just anyone to fill out. People have to actually buy your product and verify their phone number to leave a review. This means you won't see fake or anonymous reviews on your site or anywhere on our network.

Are these reviews biased?

Your customers are not getting the rebate offer for leaving a review, they are getting it for buying your product. You are not offering your customers any special favors for their reviews, you’re simply lowering your price to sell more of your product. If discounts are not biased, neither are Feedback Rebates because it's the same deal for the customer. A large research study also confirms this fact (see: http://faculty.haas.berkeley.edu/stadelis/Taobao_082616.pdf)

How much does it cost?

We charge a 25% transaction fee of the feedback rebate per review. If you are already offering discounts to your customers and decide to switch to Feedback Rebates instead, even with the 25% transaction fee, your reviews will likely cost you very little if anything at all. In fact, anything less than 80% response rate (8 out of 10 customers leaving reviews) will actually save you money. This is because you either get a review or sell at a full price.

What if I get a bad review?

Dissatisfied customers are usually the ones who have a legitimate reason to leave a review. We believe the problem is not the presence of bad reviews but the absence of good ones. With Feedback Rebates, your satisfied customers, which hopefully is the majority, will finally have a reason to leave reviews too. This means that, if you run a genuinely good business, a Feedback Rebate is probably the safest option you have when it comes to reviews.

Can I see how it works?

We created this store for that very reason. Check out the product pages and collections to see what it looks like to have feedback rebates installed on your site.
