US FTC: Bezos and Amazon CEO must testify in Prime membership program investigation


The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) said late Wednesday that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and CEO Andy Jassy cannot shy away from testifying in an investigation related to Amazon's Prime membership program.


  Amazon last month asked the FTC to drop the subpoenas issued to Bezos and Jassy, ​​arguing that they did not have a deep understanding of the details of the Prime membership sign-up and cancellation process. The relevant details are the focus of the above investigation. According to the order issued Wednesday, FTC staff began the investigation in March 2021 into whether the company misleadingly induced customers to sign up for Prime and didn't offer an easy way to cancel the program's recurring charges.


  The FTC order noted that Amazon must largely comply with a June investigation request seeking information about Amazon's plans for other paid services. Amazon has objected to the requirement, calling it too onerous and broad.
