FeedbackFive® was the first Amazon feedback tool, created by eComEngine in 2009. FeedbackExpress was created 7 years later, in 2016. Compare FeedbackFive and FeedbackExpress to decide which software will help you get the results you're looking for.
FeedbackExpress sends all messages through Amazon’s Buyer-Seller Messaging system. With FeedbackFive, sellers have the flexibility to send their email campaigns two different ways: Through Buyer-Seller Messaging for merchants who want customization options, or by triggering the official Amazon feedback and review request which uses the same system behind the Request a Review button in Seller Central. FeedbackExpress does not have a feature allowing sellers to automate the Amazon Request a Review messaging system.
You can use third-party tools like FeedbackFive or FeedbackExpress to automate feedback and review requests through Buyer-Seller Messaging. These messages can be customized, allowing you to use your branding. However, there is more risk for violating Amazon’s Terms of Service since sellers create their own email content.
FeedbackFive has the unique ability to send official Amazon feedback and review requests by automating the Request a Review button, saving valuable time. Since the message goes directly from Amazon to your buyers, you can be confident that they will never be flagged as violating any policy or cause a restriction. In other words, Amazon takes care of the content; FeedbackFive campaign rules help you make sure the right buyers receive the message at the right time, automatically!
The FeedbackFive Request a Review feature allows you to:
Both tools have pricing based on monthly email volume, offering the flexibility to choose the plan level you need based on how many emails you want to send each month. FeedbackFive plans start at $0/month. All features are included in the Pro plan at only $29.99/month for 1500 emails. FeedbackExpress pricing starts at $23/month to send 1,000 emails.
All FeedbackFive plan levels include the option to automate the Request a Review button or use Buyer-Seller Messaging to send feedback and review requests. Amazon sellers (and vendors) can also use FeedbackFive's Product Review Management feature, even on the free plan.
FeedbackExpress plans are limited to 25,000 listings, while FeedbackFive has no limitations on listings. Therefore, FeedbackFive is the stronger software option for larger, enterprise users. FeedbackFive also has a more robust feature set including A/B testing, email analytics, excluding refunded orders from solicitations, and many more customization options.
