Shopping Other Sellers at Amazon
If you’ve been shopping Amazon for any amount of time, no doubt you’ve seen the options for Shopping Other Sellers. They are generally listed down the right-hand side of the product page as shown above.
While there can be some benefits to shopping the other sellers, especially if you are not a Prime Member but still want free shipping, there are also several downsides.
While on the product page, you can normally click the link (as shown above) that says “# new” to take you to the page that details all the sellers.
On this page, you can quickly see all the sellers and even sort from the lowest prices. As you can see, the lowest price option on the page I looked at has a seller with only an 85% positive rating. To me personally, that isn’t worth the small savings I would receive. The next lowest is from Amazon.
There are some sellers with fantastic ratings and if they were a lower price, it might be worth using them instead.
If a dispute arises between you and a third-party seller, and you can’t reach an agreement with them, you will want to use the A-to-z Guarantee Protection.
If the seller’s listing is eligible for Amazon Prime, Amazon Customer Service will handle any issues related to the order and you can contact them directly.
If you’ve purchased items from other sellers, I would love to hear your experiences. Leave me a comment letting me know how it went for you.
