Two Amazon warehouses were inspected! 5700 products seized!
According to foreign media reports, Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency ( Anatel ) recently seized 5,700 uncertified products in Amazon’s warehouses and distribution centers, with a total value of about 500,000 reais. From June 21 to June 24 , Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency raided Amazon's warehouses and distribution centers in the cities of Betim and Cajamar .
At present, these 5,700 uncertified products have been seized by Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency and will no longer be available for sale on Amazon. Of the 5,700 uncertified products seized, mobile phone chargers, portable batteries and wireless headphones were the most numerous.
Amazon said in a statement that it hosted Anatel inspectors at two warehouses between June 21 and 24 . Currently, Amazon is cooperating with Brazilian authorities to deal with violating product information and will take action if necessary to safeguard the interests of consumers.
Anatel 's consultant Moisés Moreira said that Anatel has been working with major markets to prevent the publication of offending product advertisements. During this inspection, Amazon cooperated with the inspectors and carefully identified and verified the products sold by third-party sellers.
Anatel 's inspection supervisor said that the inspection operation can provide Brazilian consumers with safety and security, ensure the quality of the products purchased, so that the illegal products cannot endanger the personal safety of consumers and their families.
This is the second time Anatel has conducted a large-scale inspection of the online retailer's distribution centers, the report said. Since 2018 , Anatel has removed about 4.6 million violating products from online marketplaces (including Amazon, Mercado Livre , etc.), with a total value of about R$ 500 million.
Products sold by foreign sellers to Brazilian consumers must meet the quality and safety standards set by the Brazilian state, which is mandatory for RF products. Therefore, sellers must check whether there is an approval stamp printed on the product, on the manual or on the box to test whether the product being sold complies with the regulations before selling it.
Improve the online and offline shopping experience of buyers! Walmart is launching two new AR features!
Walmart recently launched two new augmented reality features designed to enhance the online and offline shopping experience for buyers. The first augmented reality feature is scheduled to roll out on Walmart's iOS and Android apps early next month, allowing consumers to view and purchase AR -enabled furniture and home decor at home. Walmart will initially offer 300 products for display and plans to expand that range to back-to-school merchandise in the coming months.
Access the feature by clicking the "View in Your Space" banner on an item in the Walmart app. Thanks to this feature, AR technology allows buyers to drag and drop products wherever they want, and display the dimensions of these pieces of furniture on the smartphone screen. Buyers can also connect a camera and view furniture or decorations of interest to them in the home environment. The feature allows buyers to " switch item sizes to check if items fit in your space and take photos for later use. "
The View in Your Space feature also includes haptic feedback that vibrates when a buyer moves an item to alert buyers to prevent placing items outside the room boundaries.
Walmart said the "see in your space" AR feature had undergone extensive and extensive testing with buyers before deciding to make it widely available. Feedback has been " very positive, " according to a blog post by Brock McKeel , Walmart's e-commerce senior site experience, and Cherly Ainoa , senior vice president of new business and emerging technologies at Walmart Global Technology.
The team behind the app has also taken steps to make it accessible to people with limited vision or mobility. Screen-reader-friendly instructions guide people through new features, and optional gesture navigation is a great help for those who struggle to navigate the traditional, precise drag-and-drop interface. Walmart also plans to track some traditional metrics to see if the introduction of this new feature will reduce buyer volume and friction in buying.
Another AR feature Walmart is testing is an in-store feature that allows buyers to point their phone cameras at store shelves and get products based on their personal preferences. Buyers can also filter products that meet certain criteria, such as price or ingredients. They can also obtain product information so that buyers can determine whether a certain product meets their nutritional needs. They can also automatically obtain coupons and allow buyers to view other products. Appearance matches the clothing of the selected model. In addition to this, Walmart's Sam's Club recently launched a virtual try-on feature for glasses that can be purchased through its optical store.
