Is it illegal to demand a 5 star Review?


Hello Doers, I delivered my order and client give me a 1 star review. His review was “Seller did a perfect and I’m 100% satisfied but he demanded 5 Star review that’s I gave him 1 star”. Please can you suggest me is it illegal to demand 5 star and please suggest me some professional tips. thanks


No, demanding 5 star is not illegal. I thinks about it because it’s our account rank… Buyer have this general knowledge


I don’t see the review on your page?
I think it’s against terms and conditions to ask for a five star review. You can tell the client they are welcome to leave feedback if they want (or something like that), but you can’t tell them what rating to leave.
I mean that was kind of a lame move on the buyer’s part… but… don’t ever demand ratings, and especially don’t demand 5 star ratings. Nothing more unattractive to a buyer than for them to be told how they should rate their experience.


than I requested client to change review. I opplogize and he change the review from 1 star to 5 star


Its okay to ask 2-3 times

but you can’t force your customer for doing 5 stars


I just asked 1 time…!!! But after humble request he changed review. thanks for your suggestion


Sometime shit happen

Before a week I took a project and customer increase the requirement in middle without extra budget and I also did extra work for him and rework more then 3 times and he still give me 1 star.

Some customer are totally un-honest. No worry and keep working. 2-3 negative reviews will not give any bad impact.


Telling customers they have to give you a 5 star review is going to get you into trouble. you can only ask they leave feedback.


Yeah, offcourse we learn from mistakes.


Yeah, offcourse…!!!
