Amazon marketplace deals are generally not allowed, as, like ebay deals, there is both a risk of self-promotion and also problems with stock control (ie if its a small seller, they may only have a handful of the item, so to suddenly receive hundreds of orders as can happen if it becomes hot here can cause major problems).

I think I understand what you're saying; in essence Amazon don't have connectivity to the supplier and therefore when we order online from the Amazon trader, the stock may not be available however the money will be taken (albeit refunded later).

That makes some sense, but how is that different to sending some poor mug off to a shop for an in-store deal that doesn't exist. Where is that policed?

I'm not offended as that other poster suggested (get serious its a website) and move on? Thank you so much for your sage advice; most helpful. No I just want to understand why the deal was removed as I think that there is easily a mechanism for posting it without problems.

It is and always has been site policy that AM and ebay deals aren't allowed, hence why it will have been removed - frustrating if you weren't aware I agree but thems the breaks. Key difference to an instore deal is, well, if the instore deal isn't available, it isn't available, so no money changes hands. With AM, as you say, the payment processing will take place, and then at a later date refunds have to be issued etc - this is, from what I understand, potentially quite time-consuming (and possible expensive) and ultimately inconveniences both the seller and buyer. I think the self-promotion risk is also paramount in the decision to not allow AM and ebay - yes anyone can potentially self-promote, be it a large store or small private trader, but the risk is deemed higher from ebay and AM traders.

Perhaps an additional warning when someone tries to submit an Amazon deal that marketplace traders are not allowed would help avoid this situation..
