Buyout/Free review assignment questions!

VioletMoonstone VioletMoonstone
I'm kinda new to this and I just want to make sure I know everything...

1. Can you ask to review ANYTHING here on Eden when it comes to writing a review in exchange for that item? I've done it before with a perfume/body spray (free) and obviously you can request toys, but is there anything you can't request? (is lingerie a no-no?)

2. I remember reading somewhere that if a new product already has 3 written reviews on it and if you ask to review it in exchange for the item you'll automatically get declined. Is that true?

3. How much time do you get to review an item? I have a few items I need to review soon but my birthday is also coming up soon so I might be kinda busy.

4. My last question is how many items can you buyout and add to the cart at once? I'm a really responsible person and would never add more then I could handle but I'm just wondering if there's a limit to it. Same for the free reviews, do you get one a month or something like that?

Sorry if these questions have already been answered somewhere else. I'll continue to lurk in the forum.

Allowed Reviews and descriptions:
1. 1 monthly free Eden Fantasys sponsored assignment- Pick one item that has under three reviews and is in your pricing guidelines (see guidelines below-copied from the actual page here on EF.)

2. Manufacturer Sponsored Items- These are procured either through the product search or from JR. You may only do on at a time and there is no limit per month. These are not always available.

3. "Push" assignment- Random administrator assigned products. You get this when an administrator assigns the assignment to you, this is random and is always a surprise when it happens. You may decline if you do not use the product. These need to get reviewed and up on the site for sales.

4. Descriptive Reviews- You need to apply for this. You may get items, again random, based on the necessity of getting the product on the page for sales. This is assigned by an administrator.

5. Buy out assignments- You may buy 6 items per ONE order at 30% discount per item. You MUST review these items and can only have a quantity of one item forever, (at 30% discount). You cannot purchase any more buyout items until you complete every review on your previous order. After the reviews have been completed, you may buy up to another 6 items per order at the buyout price. This is to make the products more affordable for you to review.

6. Any item you buy- You may purchase any item on the site, either with points, gift cards or cash, and write a review on that item. These are unlimited and you MUST own this item!!! The free gifts also fall into this category.

Pricing guidelines for choosing products
When selecting products, here are some general guidelines. Of course, if there is an item that falls slightly outside your price range, you may select it, and it may or may not be approved. Feel free to submit a support ticket to discuss reviewing a certain product that may be more expensive, and we may be able to work something out. However, we tend to save the more expensive items for reviewers that have been with the program for a longer time, and have proven themselves reliable, committed, and dedicated to the EdenFantasys review community.
Guidelines:

Rank: 0 - 4.4 = toys up to $30.
Rank: 4.5 - 5.4 = toys up to $40.
Rank: 5.5 - 6.4 = toys up to $50.
Rank: 6.5 - 10 = toys up to $75.
All products over $75 are assigned by administrator. Contact administrator for approval.
---------------------- ---------------------- ---------------------- ---------

You may review any item assigned to you or purchased on the site.

You need to be an advanced reviewer to request assignments.

Students can not review DVD's or lingerie.

You will occasionally be asked why Edens should assign you an item you are requesting, you need to explain why they should give you the assignment and how your review would improve upon or add to the other reviews they have on that item. Be precise and explain your point of view or purpose for wanting that assignment.

You are declined for items over 3 reviews. Use your buyout or purchase this item if you really want to review or own it.

You get three weeks for most assignments. If something comes up and you are going to need more time, message JR and let him know, He can usually work something out with you.

I hope I answered all your questions, if you have any more, feel free to message me and ask. I am always glad to help anyone!!! This goes for the readers of this thread as well.

Holy cow, that's a very comprehensive answer! The only thing I have to add is that students can review DVD's and lingerie, but it has to be purchased by the student and can't be requested as an assignment by the mentor. I know it seems obvious, but I just wanted to make sure that was crystal clear.

I had a recent student that we were able to request lingerie as an assignment, so maybe it's not a hard and fast rule anymore?

Dammit! I made a request where I wanted this to happen and it didn't.

Is there any way for me to send a note on to the administrator?

Are there stricter rules about lingerie in that you can only choose lingerie that hasn't been reviewed? Or is it also under the less than 3 reviews rule?

Lingerie cannot have any reviews. There is only one allowed review per item of lingerie.

For the manufacturer reviews...

Is everything in the product search unlimited for requesting? Can you request something from the product search AND the one per month freebie at the same time?

Once you find an item with less than 3 reviews, how do you ask to get it and review it?

Just click the "Grab It" button on the top right and then go into your assignment cart and request the item for review.
