For no apparent reason, some brands offering electronics began to disappear from Amazon. Names like Akki, Embo and Rawpower, which are responsible for providing electronic gadgets, are examples that are no longer part of the site.
But now the mystery has been unraveled and Amazon has revealed that it has permanently banned 600 Chinese brands from violating its online sales police through fraudulent reviews.
Amazon bans 600 Chinese brands for violating online sales rules
According to information disclosed by Amazon to the site On the edge, The site has banned more than 600 Chinese brands in 3,000 different seller accounts. The reason is that these brands violated Amazon’s online sales policy by fraudulent reviews.
This information justifies the sudden disappearance from the site of some of the names of gadget providers such as Aki, Embo, Rawpower, Wawa, Theotronics and Sotech. But this is only a small part of what is to come.
The numbering of all brands took place after 5 months of ‘cleaning’. According to an Amazon spokesman, these 600 brands were banned for deliberately, repeatedly and significantly violating Amazon's policies regarding review rules.
This approach to the site began when companies like Rawpower began offering gift cards in exchange for ratings for their brand.
According to The Wall Street JournalThe company issued vouchers worth $ 35 (30 euros) for an appraisal of an item that Amazon sells directly.
Following my fake review story, the listings for the Amazon-Native Electronics brand RAVPower are gone.
