Re: Do You Think Some Posters Are Paid To Post?🤔

I believe that since QVC doesn’t require people to have actually purchased products in order to write reviews that the product vendors would be foolish not to take advantage of that and use people to create phony accounts to write fake reviews. However, I don’t believe there are fake contributors in the forums who are here to either defend or shill for the company. I don’t think the company cares too much about what happens on the forums. They’re a wonderful, honest company that doesn’t need to influence its customers in that way. Meanwhile, don’t forget Christmas In July kicks off on June 30 this year! If you type “Christmas In July” in the search bar, you’ll see all the latest products and be able to get a leg up on the best deals!

I think we'd be pretty naive to think every review is on the up and up.  Businesses will do almost anything these days to make sales.

IIRC years ago it was determined that some of the testimonital calls were fake - the callers had been hired to call in and management knew about it.  I look at reviews for the negative ones - the positives are of course personal preference or fakes.

QVC, no. Maybe some of the brands have people posting on their behalf.

Definitely! It would be naive to think otherwise.

When the boards used to have far more posters than they do now, you know, since they became so closely moderated... and when so many of those posters used to be what a few of us called 'the cheerleaders', who seemed to post reguarly, essentially saying that the Q could do no wrong, I used to think some of them were shills... These days, I'm not so sure...
