A bipartisan group of legislators implies Amazon is up to no good with seller data. But sellers, including Founder & CEO of Avenue7Media, Jason Boyce, are neither shocked nor scared by the news.
Jason Boyce, founder, and CEO of Avenue7Media and author of The Amazon Jungle was similarly unsurprised. “Sellers have known about this kind of behavior from Amazon for a very long time, so there’s nothing new in terms of knowing that certain employees of Amazon use seller data in ways that are against Amazon’s public policy,” he says. “It’s just surprising to see it become so public, especially with Congress’ involvement.”
