Markets blacklisted for selling counterfeit goods
Protective measures geared towards online consumers strengthened
Vietnamese online businesses and authorities in the era of online shopping are gradually working towards getting the market under control through individual platforms and official protective policies. Statistics from the Vietnam eCommerce and Digital Economy Agency show an average of 1,500 complaints from domestic consumers each year, of which over 50% are related to online shopping. Notably, most complaints involve the quality of goods, for example the goods received are different from promotional images or contain misinformation on the origin. Furthermore, the Vietnamese government’s official e-commerce portal in 2020 alone handled over 250 complaints related to suppliers that did not have a business license, failed to make official listing of their sites with competent authorities, and sold low-quality or counterfeited products. According to the HCMC Market Management Department, anyone can create a fake account to sell goods online and hire freelancing moped riders to deliver them, making it difficult to trace the origin and related warehouses. Many retailer site owners are also based in foreign countries to avoid being discovered and fined.
