SOLVED: Can’t Add Videos to Amazon reviews
The Amazon reviews submission form changed recently, you can’t add a video anymore. Here is a simple workaround.
If you’ve ever added a review to Amazon you’ll be familiar with the form which allows you to add photos or a video:
But I noticed in August 2018 the form had changed and there was no button to add a video, just a photo:
When you click the add a photo button it only shows image files on your computer. You can change the file types to show all files and then submit a video file. This does not work. I tried it and the review got rejected because Amazon’s review system could not see the video.
Suggestion by Amazon:
I have been in touch with the Amazon Community Reviews team and they provided instructions which also appear on the Amazon website which state:
To upload a video, or if you prefer the old review page:
- Click the link beside Uploading a video? Looking for the older review page?
… Well, I can’t find that link anywhere!!
How do you add a video review to Amazon now the add video button has disappeared?
- Add your review WITHOUT the video
- Wait for the review to get approved
- Click the Edit button underneath your review
- Upload you video using the Add photos/video button which is now available
This method has worked perfectly for me. Hopefully my video will help Amazon understand the problem I am seeing.
If you’ve seen the link which allows you to view the old review page, please comment below!
