Amazon may ban shoppers for too many returns

Washington : Are you in the habit of placing orders on Amazon and returning the items too frequently? You might be risking yourself a ban by the e-commerce giant.

Amazon has a crooked return policy that bans shoppers for violations, which includes returning items more frequently, Cnet has reported.

With online shopping comes the ease to sit on your couch and order products. If you don’t find them up to your fancy, you can always choose to return them.

However, what the Amazon return policy does not explicitly mention is that customers who make excessive returns can have their accounts terminated. The conditions, on the other hand, do say that the company reserves the right to terminate accounts at its discretion.

Banned users, including some Prime members, have started taking to social media to air their frustration on being banned without any explanation or warning by Amazon. Last month, some Amazon Prime members threatened class-action lawsuit against the company after their accounts were closed without any explanation.
