Amazon Drops Pricing Policy Amid Scrutiny

Amazon has dropped a third-party seller pricing policy that drew criticism and scrutiny from German antitrust officials, AllThingsD reported on November 26.

Amazon’s policy was accused of being anti-competitive, due to an agreement clause that restricted sellers from using lower prices on other eCommerce platforms.

Following the abandonment of the seller policy, Germany’s cartel office reportedly closed its Amazon investigation.
