r/technology – Amazon is fighting against laws that could force it to verify third-party sellers’ identities and give out their contact information


I’m not for the seller’s info to be publicly accessible, but should be easily given out when deemed necessary.

Considering it’s been proven, when multiple “people” sell the same product, all of their same item go into the same bin.

Problem is, if one of the sellers are scammers, and send in fake or otherwise version of said product, there’s no tracking as to which seller that one item you bought actually came from. So when you buy an item, it’s simply not what it should be or damaged, the “seller” you chose has to pay for the return, even though it may have not been that seller’s item, but someone else’s in that bin.

The only way it’s been kept orderly, is when the item bought from the seller, is shipped directly from the seller, and not sitting in the warehouse.
