Why Most Methods Fail

Various manufacturers have a number of methods for dealing with unauthorized sellers. Typically, they use internal staff to locate all of their products on Amazon and eBay. After attempts to identify these sellers, they move toward delivery of legal notices. Another common method is to have their staff covertly purchase these products and attempt to identify the sellers that are causing the biggest problem. Then, they invest most of their effort in pursuing legal action against these bigger violators.

There are several challenges that keep companies from achieving anything beyond marginal success in their programs to stop unauthorized sellers. Most importantly, the manufacturer doesn’t realize that the problem is bigger than they can handle with their existing monitoring tools and internal staff.


The other specific problem is the difficulty in precisely determining the actual identity of the unauthorized sellers.

While these efforts occasionally yield results, it is often after a significant amount of effort and frustration.
