What is this nonsense ?! Has Amazon ever dropped you with cash surveys and dropped the hammer? So why not meet up with some other vendors in similar situations and take collective action against the tech giant.
The Verge wrote that several Chinese companies filed a lawsuit against Amazon on September 13. The retailer has long been at loggerheads with sellers using cash surveys, and recently said it had shut down 3,000 machines online. Merchants partner with 600 Chinese electronics brands in order to get critical opinions and similar activities. From their alleged revenue, however, the Amazon Services Solutions Agreement, which deals with Business by Amazon (FBA), as the complaint was filed, states that it can withhold funds if it violates company policy. And Slaouwo, Deyixun, Cstech, Recoo Direct, Angelbliss and Tudi - they are seeking "to recover money illegally and improperly held by Amazon". They also want to "stop any further misuse and misuse of funds that are the legal right of thousands of Amazon sellers and merchants."
The Chinese companies argue that as Amazon is responsible for distribution in the FBA deal, they should have been aware that they were offering gift cards in exchange for a positive review. With more than 300 million active customers and more than 1.9 million sales partners worldwide, eliminating fake reviews is an easy task for Amazon, even though 200 million of them were deleted in 2020 before they were viewed by users.
Earlier this year, Amazon partially blamed the problem on social media platforms, which many organizations use to attract fake comments. It states that people like Facebook and Twitter have been slow to remove these groups from their own platforms.
