Amazon sued over shipping prices

Amazon sued over shipping prices

Amazon just increased the price of Prime, which has ruffled feathers among subscribers. But some are saying that Amazon Prime's free two-day shipping isn't free at all. They've sued, saying the company encouraged sellers to inflate shipping prices.

From ABC News:

In what she hopes will be certified as a class-action lawsuit, [Marcia Burke of Alabama] accuses Amazon of encouraging third-party vendors to increase their prices to Prime members by the amount they charged others for shipping, without revealing that a portion of those alleged "inflated" prices was for shipping fees, the lawsuit claims.

"For example, if the price of an item is advertised for $10 with $3.99 shipping and the [vendor] wishes to match or top their price, the [vendor] would charge $13.99 or higher," Burke alleges in the suit.
