Marketplaces are really appealing places to buy adult toys. It seems that Ebay and Amazon are the one that many orgasm seekers trust and use most of the time.
Prices of sex toys on Amazon or other marketplaces are super low and appealing. Customers are blinded with unjustified trust that marketplaces are standing for. Everything looks perfect and legit, but unfortunately there is a huge problem that Ebay money back guarantee and Amazon A-to-Z guarantee will not save you from.
COUNTERFEIT sex toys!
Yes, believe it or not marketplaces like Ebay and Amazon are flooded with low quality, cheap adult toys that are also made of unknown, non tested and dangerous materials that will harm your health.
We are getting offers from shady Chinese and Indian companies almost every week. They are trying to sell us sex toys that mimic almost all biggest sex toy manufacturer that are selling their adult toys in USA. Some of them also mimic packaging, so it is really hard to tell that product is counterfeit.
Prices that they are offering for their products are only fraction of price that authentic manufacturer sell their products to distributors.
Furthermore they also claiming that products are made from body safe and FDA tested materials, which it’s not true in most cases.
So how is it possible that those sex toys are sold as authentic on Amazon and other marketplaces?
It is simply because marketplaces want to be efficient as much as possible and want to process their data fast and easy. That’s why they sort all products based on UPC or ASIN codes. So, this simply mean that sellers who sell cheap counterfeit sex toys does not have any hard work at all.
They simply take a UPC or ASIN code from manufacturer authentic product and copy paste it to their counterfeit product. Then all they need to do is to steal pictures and descriptions from manufacturer and Voila.
Marketplace algorithm recognise their product as authentic one and because most of the time they priced their product bellow authentic ones, marketplace algorithm will show their products to potential customers instead the authentic products. So that’s why there is quite big chance that you will buy counterfeit sex toy over authentic one.
But this is not the only problem. It become even more risky when we come to Amazon.
There is no doubt, Amazon is a trendsetter in e-commerce world. It also come with some sort of trust among the customers and that’s why it’s a gold mine for fraudsters. Because of their FBA program (Fulfillment by Amazon), customers can enjoy fast and cheap shipping to almost any part of states.
But if you are aware how FBA works, then you will see that there is plenty of room for shady companies and their cheap counterfreit products.
If you are not living on the Moon, you definitely already bought some product from Amazon. So you already notice that a lot of products are marked with FULFILLED BY AMAZON. Unfortunately a lot of people think that this mean that products are sold by Amazon itself and because of this they simply trust that product that they bought is safe and authentic.
This is really far, far away from reality.
Fulfilled by Amazon means that sellers ship their products to one of 70+ amazon fulfillment warehouses.
Like explained before, they need to equip all products with UPC or ASIN code. Because space in warehouse is limited, sellers do not get designated storage space, but instead of this, Amazon store all products with same UPC or ASIN code in the same designated area or like they call it in the bins and mix them together. Because there is a lot sellers sending their stock to Amazon with same UPC or ASIN codes Amazon unfortunately can not know which product is authentic and which is not. If UPS or ASIN code is same, Amazon take it for granted that all products are Authentic.
Since Amazon wants that you get your order asap for cheapest shipping fees possible, all products are also spreaded between warehouses across the States. After you place an order for your new super-duper body safe and authentic sex toy, Amazon transfer your order to nearest warehouse to your location and someone pick the product with belonging UPC or ASIN code from communal bin.
What could go possibly wrong?
Because all products with same code are stored in same bin, this means that you will not get the product stocked from amazon retailer you bought the product from. You could buy your new toy from reputable Amazon retailer and still ended up with hazardous counterfeit product.
Because of this, there is really huge risk involved in purchasing adult toys on Amazon.
I am not saying that all sex toys that are sold on Amazon are counterfeit. They are definitely not. But because of their system, there`s always a chance that you will not get the product that you should get.
It is like playing Russian roulette with your health, because there’s no way to tell which product will be picked and shipped to you. Authentic one or counterfeit?
Are you still willing to take a risk?
Unfortunately most people are not even aware that they own a counterfeit adult toys till the day product brake or they need some assistance. Because most manufacturers offer some sort of warranty for their adult toys, customers often contacting them if they need some help.
Manufacturers that we are working with, stating that counterfeit products sold from Amazon , become a really huge problem. They are getting defected products back regularly and they need to check them because of warranty process. Upon inspection they find out new fakes every day and after they talk with customers that send those product back to them, costumers are always shocked, when they find out that product that should be authentic is not even close to it.
Counterfeit products are not covered with manufacturer warranty, so customers lost their money and stay without a product. But there is even bigger issue.
Was the sex toy they used a couple of times really made from body safe material?
Unfortunately answer is straightforward. 99% of fake products are not made with body safe materials like authentic adult toys and you will not jeopardize just your wallet, but also your health. And your health need to be the most important thing and your No.1 priority.
How to stay on the safe side?
Unfortunately there is no magic formula to resolve this problem. But if you take in to account a few preventive measures, there is a great chance that you will get authentic sex toy with manufacturer warranty and stay safe.
- Avoid purchasing sex toys on marketplaces, especially on Amazon
- Spend few bucks more and purchase your new pleasure object with retailer that you can trust
- Purchase only at retailers that offer manufacturer warranty and are willing to tell you where did they get their products from (directly from manufacturer or distributor)
- Always check product that you`ve got and contact manufacturer or distributor if you will have any doubts. Manufacturers and distributors exactly knows who sell their products. If retailer that you purchase your new adult toy from is not on the manufacturer or distributor list, then this is a huge sign that something is wrong. I would suggest avoiding any purchase from such retailer, because it is a huge risk that you will ended with dangerous counterfeit sex toy.
I totally understand that money doesn’t grow on the tree and that everyone want to get products for super cheap price. But sometimes you need to take in to consideration different aspects and when we come to adult toys, there is unfortunately no free lunch.
