Many don't realize that there are several types of listings for the same product. In many cases, Amazon actually buys the products from the manufacturers, much in the same way that Lowe's or Costo would. Amazon pays the manufacturer (or distributor) and owns the product that they then resell. These products are labeled as Sold by Amazon.

In other cases, the manufacturer/distribut​or continues to own the product until it is sold and merely uses Amazon to list the product. Or, if they want Amazon to list the product and help with the shipping, they can send their product to Amazon (but the manufacturer/distribut​or still owns the product) and have Amazon handle the listing, the sales processing, and the shipping. These items are labeled as Fulfilled by Amazon.

Individuals can also sell items on Amazon and can use Amazon's fulfillment services for a fee. Amazon stands behind these items (in a limited way) but it's not all that different than buying something on Craigslist, except without the ability to inspect the product before taking it home.


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

If you click through you should be able to see who is selling it. It is likely other vendors or individuals.

You don't even need to click through. if the price is displayed on the page it will tell you who is it sold and shipped by, as well as an expected delivery date, if it is being sold by Amazon or a partner.
