How genuine are the reviews on Amazon and Flipkart?

I strongly believe that the popularity of the Commerce platforms is responsible for driving the online sales. And one of the reasons for this rising popularity is the growing availability of online reviews and feedback posted by the existing customers, which help the prospective clients to take informed decisions. From the service provider’s perspective, online reviews are great and serve multiple purposes as it is quick, instantaneous in nature and can be quickly accessed apart from boosting revenue level.

It is understandable that clients want to opt for services that offer the highest ratings. In fact, research proves that customers spend a considerable amount of time to read online reviews before they opt for making the purchasing decision because they want to ensure that they have selected the right platform. I have personally come across that customers usually look for large feedback platforms and client-centric websites, which provide objective, true or authentic opinions.

Despite the growing preference for online customer reviews, many times reviews are manipulated or false ratings are given for varied reasons such as defaming businesses, boost sales, lure clientele and more. Hence, authentic reviews are necessary for customers and businesses both.I feel that approximately 40% of the reviews are genuine and rest 60% are manipulated for varied reasons such as to defame businesses/brands, boost sales, lure clientele, etc.
