On Thursdays with Sharon we welcome back Barcus Patty and Anthony Lee to Discuss the recent events around Rebates and Ranking manipulation on Amazon. Adam Heist may pay a visit too.
What has caused all the fuss?
Over the last 2 weeks sellers received an email from amazon stating that Rebatekey, a well knows rebate service, will be losing their access to MWS. The same message was sent to Elite Seller users also offering rebate services.
A few days ago in the amazon seller forums an amazon employee stated that 2 step urls, rebates, search find buy and other tactics are against amazons code of conduct when used for search rank manipulation.
We will be discussing these events and our interpretations of them.
