Amazon blocks another Chinese manufacturer from selling through its platform
It seems that Amazon has stopped another accessory manufacturer from selling on its website. Already, Aukey, TaoTronics and RAVPower have been de-listed by Amazon, along with VAVA, Mpow and Tomtop, too. Now, Amazon has removed Choetech across at least German, UK and US platforms. Choetech's store page remains active on Amazon, but it no longer links to any of its products.
Anecdotally, we purchased a Choetech-branded Thunderbolt 3 cable last year, but the listing is no longer active on Amazon. Neither Amazon nor Choetech has issued a statement on the matter. However, Choetech stopped posting Amazon links to its Facebook and Twitter accounts after June 26, while 9to5Toys ran an advertorial on July 2.
Presumably, it seems that another well-known company has fallen foul of Amazon's customer reviews policy. For example, Aukey and RAVPower were accused of rewarding customers with benefits, such as coupons or other discounts, in return for positive reviews on Amazon. While fake reviews supposedly remain rife on Amazon, the company does not tolerate this approach and strives to minimise this from occurring where possible. It is uncertain if Amazon will allow any of these companies back to its platform.
