Amazon Transparency protects now more than 10,000 brands

Amazon Transparency protects now more than 10,000 brands. Let’s see how…

Program built to prevent counterfeits is expanding to Japan and Australia.

Firstly, transparency is a product serialization service that builds on innovative solutions. Therefore it ensure that customers always receive authentic goods when shopping in Amazon’s stores.

But… How it works?

Transparency allows brands to uniquely identify each unit they produce. It’s the application of unique codes on the product or its packaging which allows this unicity. Thus Amazon inspect and authenticate every unit enrolled in Transparency proactively, preventing counterfeits from ever reaching customers. Additionally, customers can use a mobile app to scan the code and verify authenticity regardless of where they purchase the products. Therefore, to date, Transparency has prevented the shipment of over 500K suspected counterfeits across the enrolled brands.
