How do I find out the link to my profile on a review platform site?


Common · Amazon · eBay · Etsy · Google


The review buttons link your RateMe.link page to your profile pages on the review platforms.

Most of the review platforms, such as Yelp, Tripadvisor, and others let you link directly to your profile page via a normal URL such as "https://example.com/your/profile/url"

This is the URL you put into the "Link to your profile" field.
For most of the sites, we show a general pattern how a profile URL might look like.

The Standard Way to Finding Your Profile URL on a Review Platform Site

Getting the address or URL to your profile on a particular site usually is very easy:

  1. Go and visit the review platform site you want your button to link to.
    This is best done in a new browser window or tab, so you can switch back to your RateMe.link page easily.
  2. Use the site's search functionality to navigate to your profile.
    In most cases that means typing the name of your business into their search form and clicking on the respective search result.
  3. If there's a button or link that says something like "write a review" or similar, click it. Otherwise just stay on your profile page.
  4. Now copy the URL from the address bar on the top of your browser.
    Usually, you just have to click or tap in the address bar and the URL is marked, so you can copy it.
  5. Go back to your RateMe.link browser window and paste the URL into the field at "Link to your profile" and hit "Save"

However, there are some review platforms, most prominently Google, Amazon, and eBay who have their special ways of getting to your review profile. Here we cover how to get the link to your profile on those sites as well:


Amazon · eBay · Etsy · Google


Amazon

Amazon does not offer the option to rate sellers on their profile page.
Instead, they have a feedback page with a fixed, permanent URL where all of the buyer's purchases are listed together with an option to leave a star rating and review.
That URL is https://amazon.com/hz/feedback and it's pre-filled when you pick Amazon as a review platform.
Only if you are selling from a different country, make sure to replace the .com part with the country-specific domain ending, such as .de or .co.uk

eBay

eBay, like Amazon, does not offer the option to rate sellers on their profile page.
Instead, they have a feedback page with a fixed, permanent URL where all of the buyer's purchases are listed together with an option to leave a rating and review.
That URL is https://www.ebay.com/myb/PurchaseHistory and it's pre-filled when you pick eBay as a review platform.
Only if you are selling from a different country, make sure to replace the .com part with the country-specific domain ending, such as .de or .co.uk

Etsy

Etsy, like Amazon and eBay, does not offer the option to rate sellers on their profile page.
Instead, they have a feedback page with a fixed, permanent URL where all of the buyer's purchases are listed together with an option to leave a rating and review.
That URL is https://www.etsy.com/your/purchases and it's pre-filled when you pick Etsy as a review platform.

Google

If you want to get ratings and reviews on Google we recommend setting up a free Google MyBusiness Profile.


I have a Google MyBusiness Profile

With your Google MyBusiness profile you can create a direct link for customers to write a review on Google:
Create a link for customers to write reviews
You can then use this link with your RateMe.link button.


I don't have a Google MyBusiness Profile

If you don't have or want a Google MyBusiness Profile and your place is on Google, it's still possible to link to your review writing page on Google, albeit a bit more work:

The link looks like this https://search.google.com/local/writereview?placeid=ALOTOFCHARACTERS.
The first part https://search.google.com/local/writereview?placeid= is always the same. The second part ALOTOFCHARACTERS is different for each place, this is your individual "Place ID".

To find out your place id:

  1. Go to the Google Maps Place Id Finder and find your place like you would in a normal Google search. Then copy the value of "Place ID" (look something like "ChIJiwV3rBXEyIARRdN3c345tKE")
  2. Use that value as the second part of your link so your link is now https://search.google.com/local/writereview?placeid=ChIJiwV3rBXEyIARRdN3c345tKE

That's it, you can then use this link with your RateMe.link button.
