The Chinese are selling counterfeit product through Amazon. Sellers are shipping their inventory to Amazon FBA centers, and when an order is placed, Amazon packs and ships the merchandise to the consumer.
The merchandise is also eligible for Amazon Prime and super saver shipping. Amazon even manages customer service and returns through this program 24 hours a day, according to its FBA advertisement. The problem with this is it offers Chinese counterfeiters easier access to product information, making it easier to create fake merchandise, send it to the FBA fulfillment centers, and undercut legitimate sellers.The counterfeiters even pay for reviews, generating thousands of positive reviews in a short period of time to add an appearance of legitimacy to their online store. Consumers are the ones who discover the fakes.
Amazon has made it easier for Chinese counterfeiters to do business through their FBA program, and has no effective method or plan to fix the problem and police offenders.
