tech news today Amazon places unwanted products in children's records
The cost of advertising is $ 500,000 per spot
Customers complain that Amazon's ads use a deceptive design to trick them into buying subsidized products rather than child records for their friends and family members, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Many people noticed that they had inadvertently bought gifts from these ads and received unwanted items from their friends and family.
Inside the gift records, Amazon appears to contain new baby products such as Playtex Diaper Genie diapers and Snog & Dry diapers from Kimberly-Clark as advertising ads.
The Federal Trade Commission states that advertisements must be distinctive and distinguishable from non-consumer advertising, but the Amazon-sponsored tag is small and gray and can be easily overlooked.
"We are constantly working on new ways to improve shopping experiences for customers,"
Amazon told the Wall Street Journal.
