The package that ordered from K&M actually was delivered by and through Amazon. Apparently it was always at Amazon's custody. Amazon tried to explain it to me (I chatted with them) but I still don't understand how it works, because it was a part of amazon prime. I guess some sellers sell through amazon, others on their own?

It's actually a very simple arrangement. The sellers ship all their stock to the Amazon warehouse, and when an item is sold Amazon ships it to the customers. Amazon has much lower shipping costs, then the standard rates other vendors have to pay. I don't know if they mingle with their other stock. And I think for all such shipments the Amazon return policy applies and the returned items go back to Amazon warehouse instead of the vendor's.

That sounds like a great arrangement for the sellers, I am surprised more sellers dont do it.   You can use amazon's warehouses, get your products to consumers cheaper and faster and amazon is really good about the /in stock/ status - they computer system is pretty accurate about it.   And it sounds like a great arrangement for buyers. because in case of return they don't have do deal with a hustle of trying to return to some pop and mom store (good luck with that) instead returning to amazon which is a painless procedure.
