Customer Trust & Partner Support (CTPS) is responsible for creating a trustworthy shopping experience across Amazon stores worldwide by protecting customers, brands, selling partners and Amazon from fraud, counterfeit, and abuse as well as empowering, providing world-class support, and building loyalty with Amazon's millions of selling partners. We value individual expression, respect different opinions, and work together to create a culture where each of us is able to contribute fully. Our unique backgrounds and perspectives strengthen our ability to achieve Amazon's mission of being Earth's most customer-centric company.
In CTPS, Abuse Prevention (AP)'s mission is to protect the trust customers and selling partners have in our stores. We view abuse attempts as defects in systems or operations, and the core value we add to Amazon is the ability to prevent these defects and eliminate them before they impact our customers and selling partners. We always seek to engage, educate, and improve the behaviors of selling partners. However, we take immediate action on intent to commit fraud, to prevent negative impact to customers and other selling partners.
