One of the reasons why most people choose to shop on Amazon is that the company allows you to return a product once you buy it and realize that it’s not too your liking. However, it appears that the company is now clamping down on abuse of this system. A new report reveals that the company is permanently banning Amazon customers who make too many returns. It has reportedly banned hundreds of customers so far which it felt were abusing the system.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Amazon has now started banning customers who return orders frequently. The report highlighted complaints from customers who say that the company didn’t alert them that they had returned too many items before banning them.

It’s far from the only retailer that’s doing this. Others often discreetly track how often customers return their orders and if they too feel that the system is being abused, they drop the banhammer as well.

Amazon has reportedly banned hundreds of people for this from late March to early April. A spokesman for the company told the scribe that “there are rare occasions where someone abuses our service over an extended period of time,” adding that “We never take these decisions lightly, but with over 300 million customers around the world, we take action when appropriate to protect the experience for all our customers.”
