My guess is no as theses sellers prob have very limited amounts of stock.

not sure on this one, because sometimes unless you read the small print you aint even aware, i had a game i thought was for amazon and when it came it was fullfilled by indigo


Here for example if you didnt bother reading you would assume it was from amazon, but if you read further it is from indigostar amazon.co.uk/Dr-…t_b

Yes , quite correct sassie. I to have ordered games through HUKD deals which come through as Indigo Starfish. Thing is they also use all of Amazons systems, packing materials, invoicing etc as far as I can make out.

They also use the Amazon delivery rates and super saver.

I don't think in these sellers case there is any difference in stock levels than to Amazons own products.

Just needs clarification.

Well according to their website Indigo Starfish are about to launch their own online shop:

indigostarfish.com/

We have been allowing deals from the Amazon Fulfilment sellers folks.

Thanks emma for setting the record straight. I assume then it's ok to post more if the situation arises ??

At this stage, yes.

I'm a newbie :-)
OK, so Indigostarfish is 'allowed' , they are partners not a marketplace sellers at Amazon, how many other partners are there?

Marketplace sellers are another matter apparently, why? partly it seems they don't have large stocks. Maybe they're sole traders (another no no apparently). But some are 'proper' limited companies with business premises.

I've posted only a few deals, but one at least from an 'approved' source must have had very few items on offer as the deal expired very quickly. (If I was a web site owner, I think I'd advertise a 'deal' with a few items simply to attract customers)

Recently, it's amused me to to find a good deal on bicycles. There are some excellent deals in cheap (but very good value) bikes from Amazon marketplace traders (new of course), however having done a great deal of work finding these deals, they're all forbidden because they're from traders. It's all very frustrating. I could list a cheap bike at Argos, but it's under half the price at Amazon! How can I explain that? It's also had bad revues.

It's all very frustrating
