FeedbackFive® was the first Amazon feedback tool, created by eComEngine in 2009. Four years later, Feedback Genius was created by Seller Labs. Compare FeedbackFive vs Feedback Genius to decide which tool will help you get the results you want.
Seller Labs' Feedback Genius tool 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. Feedback Genius 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 Feedback Genius 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:
Feedback Genius pricing is based on your annual Amazon sales volume with plans starting at $49/month. FeedbackFive offers the flexibility to choose the plan level you need based on how many emails you want to send that month. FeedbackFive plans start at $0/month, but sellers can access all features with the Pro plan at only $29.99/month.
In order to use Feedback Genius, you’ll need to purchase the Seller Labs Pro program, which is advertised as an all-in-one solution. There is no option to purchase Feedback Genius a la carte, which is inconvenient if you don’t want the whole suite of tools.
eComEngine offers a suite of tools in addition to FeedbackFive, but those can be purchased on an as-needed basis. All FeedbackFive plan levels include the option to automate the Request a Review button or use Buyer-Seller Messaging for sending feedback and review requests. Amazon sellers (and vendors) can also use the FeedbackFive Product Review Management feature a la carte, even on the free plan.
