US e-commerce giant Amazon.com has banned more than 600 Chinese brands from 3,000 stores due to fake product reviews, the news reported. And the Verge news site quoted an Amazon spokesperson as saying that these Chinese brands that have been banned grossly violate Amazon’s policies, particularly those related to misusing ratings and comments. The list of brands that have been banned includes Okey, M-Po, RAVPower, Vafa, Tao Tronics, and Chewtech. The South China Morning Post reported on the ban, citing Cindy Tai, Amazon’s vice president of international sales in the Asian region. Amazon launched a campaign against fake and targeted reviews after Nicolas Nguyen published a report in the US Wall Street Journal about how companies like RaffPower offered gift cards in exchange for reviews for their products. Amazon has banned the posting of paid or direct reviews on its network since 2016. However, marketers continue to use this prohibited method by offering disguised offers to review writers.
