3. The state of California is suing Amazon for anti-competitive practices

California Attorney General Rob Bonta sued Amazon in San Francisco Superior Court, accusing it of anti-competitive practices.

The action is related to how Amazon penalizes sellers who list products at lower prices on other sites by removing buttons like “buy now” and “add to cart,” key drivers of online shopping.

According to Bonta, the action is currently limited to California, where Amazon has about 25 million customers. Bonta commented: “Amazon deceives consumers into thinking they are getting the lowest possible prices, when in fact they cannot get the low prices that would prevail in a freely competitive market because they have forced and listed their third-party sellers and wholesale suppliers. conclude alleged contracts on competitive prices”.

“Without basic price competition, without different sites trying to outbid each other with lower prices, prices are artificially stabilized at higher levels than would be the case in a competitive market.”

Amazon spokesman Alex Haurek said sellers set their own prices for the products they offer in their store, so he expects the lawsuit to be dismissed. Haurek concluded: “In the widest selection and, like any store, we reserve the right not to highlight offers to customers that are not competitively priced.”

Last quarter, about 57% of Amazon’s sales came from products from third-party merchants, who pay referral fees for the company’s inventory, delivery services, advertising and other offers. According to a financial report, Amazon collected more than $100 billion in fees from third-party services in the last 12 months.

The California government has been investigating Amazon for more than two years for practices that violate the Unfair Competition Laws and Cartwright, the state’s top antitrust agency.

In March 2022, the District of Columbia Supreme Court dismissed a similar antitrust lawsuit against Amazon brought by District Attorney Karl Racine.
