Regarding the Changes to Amazon’s Community Guidelines:
ART Product Deals Will Continue!
Hey there, everyone!
As you’ve probably heard, Amazon has an update that affects product reviews. Basically, reviews promised in exchange for discount or free items are no longer allowed.
There’s a lot of talk and contradicting information swirling online, but we’re here to reassure you that ART isn’t going anywhere.
What does this mean for you, as a member of ART?
First of all, ART isn’t going anywhere, but it will be evolving.
- Will you still be able to shop on our site? Yes!
- Will you still be able to get awesome discounted or free products? Yes!
- Are you still a valued member of our awesome community? Of course!
Should you leave a review for products you already have?
We see that the biggest thing you’re all wondering about is: To review, or not to review?
And the answer is: It’s entirely up to you.
You are not required to leave reviews for ART products, but you can still review if you choose
You are not required to leave a review for any products you currently have from ART, and you are not required to leave reviews for any products you purchase from ART moving forward.
Of course, you can leave a review if you choose to. Those of you who took reviewing seriously were putting a lot of effort into making them helpful, well-written, unbiased and informative, which is great information for shoppers.
If you do choose to leave a review, you do not need to leave a disclosure.
You won’t be breaking any rules by choosing to leave reviews on your products. The only difference is that it isn’t required by us at all, and it won’t be tracked.
ART is evolving
You are all valued members of our community, and we have some exciting changes in store over the next few weeks; stay tuned as our community becomes bigger, better and more fun than before. Those who have built up strong reputations in this community won’t go unnoticed.
— The ART Team
