Amazon SHOULD BE ALLOWED
Allows Free market to decideStores will have a lower return rateCustomers may decide to check amazon at home first if not allowed to check in store, and will probably just buy it on amazon if they are already at home.Let customer decide where they want to purchase

HUIXIAN YIN
Saves time and hassle for the customersIf a customer buys an item and they find it significantly cheaper somewhere else, such as Amazon, they will most likely return it anywaySaves time and hassle for the companyThis also wastes time for the company because they will be making transactions and then losing them when customers come back and return items
Amazon SHOULD BE ALLOWED
KATHLEEN WON
Promotes further development in relevant technologies such as data collection and picture identificationThey're just keeping up with the marketBesides Amazon's Price Check app, there are RedLaser, Pic2Shop, Goodzer, and ShopSavvy.As a result, even if Amazon did not have this app, there would be plenty of other accessible versions.
Amazon SHOULD BE ALLOWED
KATHLEEN WON
The offer could cost the companies a lot of money if everyone downloads the app and plays along.When people talk about the demise of small retailers, who put time, care and expertise into their shops:---- this is the sort of thing that's killing them ----Amazon is deliberately aiming to rob regular retailers of the one thing Amazon can't provide:---- actual touch and feel shopping ----
Amazon SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED
MAURICIO SILVA
People are already aware of online shopping.Way to destroy more jobs.I can't see how that is remotely fair for retailers.
Amazon SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED
MAURICIO SILVA
Since Amazon is often a proxy retailer, it would benefit from selling others' goodsChanges the market space of the competitionWould encourage retail marketers to disguise their goods in an attempt to fool the applicationDisguises could also fool customers
Amazon SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED
CY NEITA
This application may also encourage retailers to cheapen their goods to remain competitiveCheaper goods means lower quality, which is undesirable by definitionLeads consumers to purchase from big companies ousting mom-and-pop businesses from the marketThis application is also restrictive, as not everyone has Internet-enabled phonesDivides consumers
Amazon SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED
