Amazon has attracted widespread criticism for poor working conditions by both current employees, who refer to themselves as Amazonians, and former employees, as well as the media and politicians. In 2011, it was publicized that at the Breinigsville, Pennsylvania warehouse, workers had to carry out work in 100 °F (38 °C) heat, resulting in employees becoming extremely uncomfortable and suffering from dehydration and collapse. Loading-bay doors were not opened to allow in fresh air, due to the company's concerns over theft. Amazon's initial response was to pay for an ambulance to sit outside on call to cart away overheated employees. The company eventually installed air conditioning at the warehouse.
On October 16, 2016, Apple filed a trademark infringement case against Mobile Star LLC for selling counterfeit Apple products to Amazon. In the suit, Apple provided evidence that Amazon was selling these counterfeit Apple products and advertising them as genuine. Through purchasing, Apple was able to identify that nearly 90% of the Apple accessories sold and fulfilled by Amazon were counterfeit. Amazon was sourcing and selling items without properly determining if they are genuine. Mobile Star LLC settled with Apple for an undisclosed amount on April 27, 2017.

A price comparison app or website allows you to compare prices for products. The app shows you the product prices from different retailers to show you where to buy the product affordably. Some apps require you to scan the barcode while others allow you to type in the product name to find your product. The price comparison website then shows the customer a list of retailers who are selling the same product, and how much they’re selling for. Those looking to save money on purchases are more likely to use a price comparison app. To attract budget-conscious customers you’ll need to offer a lower product price. However, it isn’t necessary to lower your product price to attract customers to your store.

In March 2015, it was reported in The Verge that Amazon will be removing non-compete clauses of 18 months in length from its US employment contracts for hourly-paid workers, after criticism that it was acting unreasonably in preventing such employees from finding other work. Even short-term temporary workers have to sign contracts that prohibit them from working at any company where they would "directly or indirectly" support any good or service that competes with those they helped support at Amazon, for 18 months after leaving Amazon, even if they are fired or made redundant.

To determine how to price your products: Ultimately, you’ll have the final say in how to price your products. Price comparison tools help you understand how your competitors price your products. You’ll know what the average is between your competitors to determine if your products are priced within industry standards. However, you aren’t required to lower your price, especially if it’ll greatly affect your margins. A competitive pricing intelligence strategy is a lot harder than it sounds.
