Amazon tossed out 600 Chinese chips

Amazon says it has permanently banned the sale of 600 Chinese marks for fraudulent reviews.


Amazon has permanently banned the sale of materials through its platform to more than 600 Chinese brands on 3.000 different vendor accounts. The company states that these 600 brands were banned because they knowingly and repeatedly violated Amazon's policies, especially those concerning customer abuse.

This repression began after reports by journalist Nicole Ngyuen of the Wall Street Journal, on how companies like RavPower and others (Aukey, Mpow, Vava, TaoTronics, Choetech, etc.) offered gift cards to end consumers in exchange for writing a review.

Amazon banned the practice of encouraging criticism in 2016 because it is considered unfair competition and essentially a paid critique that may not be true, but the process proved to be a difficult one.

Some of these offers are covered as a VIP trial program or extended warranty. Other companies offer incentives only after you leave a bad review. They will give you a free product or offer you a "refund" without the need for a refund, as long as you delete your negative review.

It is unclear what other Chinese brands may be included in Amazon's latest crackdown. Although Aukey was one of the first high-profile companies to be banned by the company in May, the company continues to sell headphones under a different brand since June (Key Series) and you can still buy a pair from Amazon today.

In early July, parent company Shenzhen Youkeshu Technology (better known as YKS) reported that Amazon had closed 340 YKS online stores and frozen more than $ 20 million worth of assets. According to the South China Morning Post YKS was one of the platform's largest Chinese retailers.

Following is the full Amazon statement:
