Amazon was criticized for selling counterfeit and inferior products on its platform

The popular headset hanger Anchor manufacturer Elevation Lab said Amazon snatched fake and shoddy product makers for five days in a row "for all of its sales." And, Casey Hopkins, founder of Elevation Lab, wrote in an impassioned blog post that Amazon's policies condoned the sale of fake and shoddy products.

Hopkins released a screenshot on Thursday saying that the Anchor headphone pylon sold on Amazon was not sold by Elevation Lab but was sold by a company called suiningdonghanjiaju Co Ltd. He writes that no matter who the seller is, they "can imitate his company's products through reverse engineering." However, the quality of these fake and shoddy products and packaging quality is much lower, "no difference with the printed after playing out". Naturally, the seller is cheaper than the Elevation Lab product.

This is not the first time Elevation Lab has encountered such a thing, Hopkins said. On the Amazon platform, this is common. He said Amazon should take some basic steps to prevent this from happening, including by making it easy for buyers to tell Amazon that they did not wholesale their products to third parties and quickly remove reported fake and shoddy products.

In response, Amazon said in a statement that it has been working hard to crack down on fake and shoddy products and prosecuted sellers on counterfeit issues, and has also set up a brand registration system aimed at protecting sellers' trademarks.

However, such a reply did not seem to give Hopkins some comfort. Although Amazon has now removed counterfeit products, but Hopkins found that "Amazon did not allow third-party sellers to sell its own brand of products AmazonBasics. Obviously, Amazon uses a double rule here. & rdquo;

Hopkins promises that the company will offer certain benefits to consumers who buy directly from the Elevation Lab Web site.
