    Caveat Emptor at Amazon

    Mine was removed, IMO, because I complained about the seller to customer service as noted in my first post. I have been asking nothing more of amazon than to have my reviews reinstated.

    Caveat Emptor at Amazon

    There are two different reviews on amazon, one for the product and one for the seller. I tried to leave a seller review. People aren’t supposed to mention products in seller reviews, though they do, because sellers have different products. Like you say, apparently they don’t follow their own...

    My review was not substainatly different, I just noted the price difference as well and gave them 2 or 3 stars, can't recall. I think mine was removed because I complained.

    Yeah, it’s strange mine was stripped and hers wasn’t. Maybe they haven’t gotten to it yet. It took a bit for mine to be taken down

    Update 2: No answer, and I’m not the only one who is upset about this. Someone else has a review up on the same thing. The only other person on the list is Jeff Bezos. I’ll pass on emailing him, it’s obvious Amazon is okay with their own polices being broken in this case.

    That’s the lesson I learned.

    You do understand that I asked for nothing but my seller feedback warning others to be restored, right? I chalked the rest up to caveat emptor. If it’s kosher to do (and it’s not according to what chistina found out) then the feedback should’ve remained.

    Caveat Emptor at Amazon

    There are two types of feedback, feedback for the product and feedback on the seller. I left feedback on the seller. It should’ve been kosher. As Christina noted, dropshipping violates their policy. Even if it didn’t, why would feedback mentioning that be removed? If it’s kosher to drop...

    Caveat Emptor at Amazon

    Good to know. I actually sent the first contact on the company contacts a short, polite email explaining the situation to Amazon and asking that if it was okay for the seller to do this, why feedback explaining this was removed, and asking my feedback be restored. That was before you posted...

    Caveat Emptor at Amazon

    I found amazons seller rules. Seems to me they’re violating them. Behavior that could be deemed as manipulation or "gaming" of any part of the buying or selling experience And “Never misrepresent yourself”...

    Caveat Emptor at Amazon

    no. I’m promoting that the product be actually shipped by the vendor. Not that they place an order with another company for me. That is not what I asked for or bought. And I am promoting transparency in that process, not hiding negative feedback. These storefronts are actually just shell...

    Mine came shipped directly from Walmart in both cases.

    Caveat Emptor at Amazon

    I have no idea what amazons policy is. But I do believe the buyer should be aware the item is not coming from the seller but a third party. And jacking up the price that much is just plain shady. Why shouldn’t other people be made aware this is the case, in a review, even if it’s not...

    Caveat Emptor at Amazon

    Go up the chain or sucker people on Amazon? I can’t belive they’re okay with essentially giving business to Walmart for a small exchange fee. Walmart is a huge competitor for them. And as JSN noted, it does leave a bad taste in your mouth about shopping on Amazon. Oh well, I learned my...
