Amazon is planning a new plan to select 'whether it is a malicious company' by confirming the identity using a video call application against a third-party company that has often been criticized. Clarified by the report.

According to the report, Amazon has been verifying the identity of third-party companies since the beginning of 2020, and has already verified some of the major third-party companies. However, due to the spread of the new coronavirus, it became necessary to maintain a social distance, and it seems that from February 2020 it will shift to identity confirmation work using a video call application.

According to Amazon, the interview-type identification work was done for more than 1000 Amazon accounts active at bases such as China, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan.

An in-depth investigation by Amazon could cause difficulties for some Chinese-based third-party vendors who have registered multiple accounts using VPNs or fake information.

However, a 2019 survey report revealed that 40% of the top 10,000 European-based third-party vendors are actually Chinese-based distributors, so Amazon said Eradicating fraudulent products on Amazon can be difficult unless an interview-style identity check is performed on a wider range of countries and regions.
