Fulfilled by Amazon is when a 3rd party Merchant ships the items to Amazon, and Amazon takes care of everything from Website to Fulfillment.
I always thought fulfilled by Amazon means that they bought a bulk order from amazon and in return contract out amazon to ships those units out. Instead of shipping things back and forth which cost a lot more money.
Amazon is the 1st party, you are the 2nd party and some other company is the 3rd party.
Can someone please explain to me how these are amazon third party? At worst the look to me like second party, or even first party considering they are fulfilled by Amazon? Maybe i don't get this whole "party" business...
1st party = you
2nd party = amazon
3rd party = some other company selling things through amazon
My apologies if my office has frozen my brain but just to be clear, aren't the distinctions:
1st Party Sales: Sennheiser selling it's earbuds
2nd Party: Amazon selling Sennheiser's earbuds
3rd Party: Bobs Buds selling Sennheiser's earbuds through an Amazon listing
