How the State of the Amazon Marketplace Represents China’s Unfair Practices
The dominance of Chinese merchants on the platform is another issue that shouldn’t be overlooked. Over a third of Amazon’s top sellers come from China and many of them take advantage of being based close to the factories. Developments in cross-border payments technology and fulfillment services allow these sellers to offer goods directly to global customers at low prices. By sourcing their inventories directly from manufacturers, they also get to enjoy larger margins and minimal overhead.
