Amazon removes 6 million counterfeit products from its supply chain globally


Ecommerce giant, Amazon in 2022, removed six million counterfeit items globally from the supply chain, the company said in a report on Tuesday.

To avert bad actors from publishing a single product for sale on the platform, Amazon states that it stopped over 800,000 attempts to create new selling accounts in the previous year.  

This is a drastic step down from the 2.5 million attempts in 2021, and 6 million attempts in 2020.

“The strategic combination of industry-leading technology and experts are successfully stopping bad actors and making an impact beyond Amazon’s marketplaces and stores – identifying, seizing, and appropriately disposing of over six million counterfeit products in 2022, preventing them from reaching customers and being resold elsewhere in the global supply chain,” the report said.

As per the report, the counterfeit crime unit of Amazon sued or referred for investigation over 1,300 criminals in the US, UK, EU, and China in 2022.
