Chinese vendors to face new tougher standards

China’s leading online vendors and home appliance retailers may soon face tougher standards in their marketing operations as the Ministry of Commerce responded to consumer concerns that the firms are engaging in sales stunts.

These companies are cutting the prices of electronic products and home appliances but customers are complaining that the reductions are merely marketing stunts and only a limited number of products are actually cheaper than before.
