The option will be available in the US later this year and in Germany, France, Italy and Spain early next year. This is already possible in the UK.
The latter is not accidental. In June onthulde ITV News Amazon has millions of new laptops, TVs, drones, headphones and hair dryers that are not destroyed every year.
Buy unsold shares
Another option is the FBA liquefaction program, which seeks to reduce the loss of items returned or unsold by sellers through Amazon’s proprietary infrastructure. For example, these are purchased by other companies.
