Amazon for books, Adorama for gear. Never had a problem with either.

They have more than books. I'm addicted to dried pineapple and they have the best price around for large quantities. ;)

Are you sure it's not knockoff dried pineapple? The official pineapple dryers need some one like Helen!

How is this an Amazon problem when the item is shipped directly from Adorama? If the item was listed as "fulfilled by Amazon" I can see the opportunity for a possible mix up by Amazon. But Adorama should have full control of the listing and what product ultimately is shipped.


Oh, to have full control of the listing...oh to have the opportunity to exchange an item purchased from Adorama via Amazon. But we don't. Amazon has full 'control'.....

......I contacted an Adorama manager and asked why this happens so much. He said it's Amazons fault and it makes Adorama too much money to change their relationsuhip.


An Adorama MANAGER said that??! Wonder if he's still with us?.....

Our relationship with Amazon is based on being able to offer customers who want to purchase from Amazon eg because of Prime membership, using Amazon gift cards etc the opportunity to do so.

Then I would buy something Amazon directly stocked. Amazon has a history of screwups with third party sellers, Adorama isn't the only one.

Thank you for setting the record straight :grin:

He said he was a manager and you copied him as well when addressing an issue.

I find it's easier for me to manage my purchases through Amazon when buying through many different sources. Imagine having to remember dozens of unique passwords especially when your in some random location and need to make a quick purchase. I can add a list of things to my cart and each time i click the cart button it tells me if prices increase or decrease. Much easier then digging through a load of bookmarks to see if something is within my budget each week. I also like the Wishlist history that tells me how much an item has decreased in cost since added to my list. If Adorama has a better deal directly i'd go that route but sometimes they actually sell things cheaper on Amazon then they do directly.

Prime membership for one..

As far as I know buying from adorama thru amazon doesn't make them "prime eligible" since Adorama fullfils their own orders.

Still I always buy from Amazon when Adorama offers the same item for the same price at the amazon website. Mostly because I'm an amazon shareholder, and that way even if it's adorama who is selling the item, adorama has to pay a fee (however small) to amazon, which in turn increases amazons revenue, profits, etc and should, in theory, make my amazon shares worth more. =)

To each their own. I have shopping accounts at over 100 merchants. I don't have any trouble even for those I may only buy from once every year or so. I prefer to shop directly with online merchants and that includes Amazon. Now a lot of these sites are offering third party items - Sears, Walmart, Newegg, and Buy to name just a few and I just don't like involving a third party in my transactions.

I can barely remember my own phone number sometimes let alone the names of 100 different shopping sites.

If more sites began to use OpenID it would be great for those of us lacking in memory cells.

There are simpler ways like a spreadsheet and a simple encryption program. If you're not confortable with that we used to keep lists on this antique stuff called paper. :p

Why buy something from Adorama through Amazon? Why not order it directly? Adorama isn't the only seller that has had problems with this kind of issue. This is why I don't buy anything from Amazon unless it is directly sold by Amazon.

In this case it was because there is 5 United Airline miles/dollar from amazon, but not from adorama. Thus much more attractive to buy it from adorama through amazon.
