Amazon Australia shoppers hit by new scams, with fake stores ‘selling’ goods that don’t exist

Analysis by US firm Marketplace Pulse identified 36 third-party sellers on Amazon Australia that appeared to be scammers, having attracted more than 50 per cent negative feedback.

Marketplace Pulse founder Juozas Kaziukėnas said Amazon scams flooded the US site in 2017 and evidence showed the scammers were now targeting Australian consumers.

“There is a growing number of (Amazon Australia third-party) sellers who have now dozens of negative reviews and not a single positive review,” he said.

“It’s clearly a thing that has happened recently and now is becoming more common in Australia. This behaviour is apparent on all Amazon country sites and Australia is the latest one to join.”

Amazon testing international reviews across marketplaces

The move is part of Amazon's broader efforts to grow the amount of customer feedback and engagement on its site, according to Juozas Kaziukenas, the CEO of Marketplace Pulse.

Amazon introduced a new ratings system last year that allows shoppers to leave a star rating without a written review. It has also recently expanded its Vine program, which connects top reviewers with sellers that give out free products, to third-party merchants and launched a new "request a review" button for the sellers.

All of this is resulting in a higher number of customer reviews for every product on Amazon, Kaziukenas said. It's also likely going to generate more positive ratings because stars without a written review are easier to leave, he said.

"Amazon is on a mission to have more products with more reviews," Kaziukenas said.
