We are getting ripped off as a company. We are getting ripped off as consumers. Jeff Bezos just keeps getting fatter, greedier, and lazier.
I don’t go in too much for fear, but this is a mess.
We have this cool little t-shirt brand, DHDwear. We’re in bike shops across the US and Canada.
People like our quality so much we are being ripped off. ALOT. Does Jeff Bezo care? Instead of protecting us, Amazon puts up all kinds of hurdles that protect the thieves.
Search one of our top selling designs on Amazon and you’ll find 33 different sellers, with prices ranging from $9.28-23.95.
Just one of those sellers is offering the real deal, 95 Markets.
They ALL use our images, they use our name, they use our copy and then print crap. The design is crappy. The shirt is horrible, it literally stinks. Look at the images below.
Nearly all of the sellers claim a US address, but actually ship from China or India. People hate the shirts, hate the print, then give horrible reviews… which end up making us look terrible, and we are really awesome! (really)
We have to to go through this huge process to get them to stop selling… and for every one we stop, two pop up. It’s like Whac-A-Mole.
We aren’t alone.
A recent study said 80% of Apple accessories are fake.
Let that sink in…
We, you and me, have NO idea if we are buying legitimate product on Amazon. Books probably won’t kill you, but what about the FLUID sports drink I like so much? What about an Apple charger knock off that smokes your laptop, do you think Apple is going to bail you out?
Here’s some good news.
Walmart is in hot pursuit of Amazon. Walmart is really hard to get your products listed on because they are taking the time to make sure the sellers are legit. We aren’t on there yet, but we will be soon thanks to the hard work of 95 Markets.
Our options as consumers are to either buy direct from the manufacturer, from an authorized seller, or from a curator like Walmart that is doing their job.
Please share this all over the internet, Amazon needs to change their policies.
The print is dreadful… super heavy plastic ink. That white you see indicates poor quality and lack of attention to detail. Look at the “A” filling. Sheeeeesh!
Up close you can see our print quality. We use environment friendly, water-based inks that you can’t even feel after just 1 wash.
Ever heard of this brand in the US. NOPE!All our shirts are tagless, with our neck print.
Really, really bad… you see it, right?
Here’s our Smiley. So crisp and clean.
Look at that precision. Oh, did I mention all our shirts now have UPC codes and hang tags?
