Not sure how to deal with this, and I’m not sure they would be happy with an explanation of how Amazon works for sellers and that I didn’t receive any money. Personally I would have advised your customer to take this up with Amazon, as sellers, we have no control over payments etc, etc.

Problems relating to payment should be referred to Amazon customer service on I “pre-ordered” an Xbox One controller on 11/25 because it had an expected prime delivery date of ~12/10 but once 12/10 came around the pre-order changed to “out of stock” yet nothing has been shipped and the manufacturer nor Amazon's outsourced customer service… see more I wish these other answers were false, but they are not.

So my order remains in limbo with a “delivery date pending” status, and they justify it by stating, 'well we haven't charged you yet, so....' They somehow fail to understand how this is a major inconvenience for a customer.

Strangest (and most frustrating) part is the item has been put back into stock for orders twice since 12/10, almost as if they need to sell a certain amount before being able to fulfill the deal and maintain whatever 35%+ profit margin.

Click Place your pre-order. We won't charge you for the pre-order until release day, and will e-mail you to confirm when the item is available in Your Games & Software Library. “So, sounds like Amazon operates pre-orders as other retailers do and Won't charge until release day.

Click Place your pre-order. We won't charge you for the pre-order until release day, and will e-mail you to confirm when the item is available in Your Games & Software Library. If I did this with concert tickets, it would be scalping and illegal but somehow it's completely ethical for consumer goods.

You sit and wait and delays will appear if your pre-order suddenly drops out of stock, even though your order status shows it to be expected by a certain date giving you false hope until you finally have to track down an Amazon agent who then decides that you will be forced to cancel your order, if they haven't already made that choice for you to begin with. You would figure that a multi-billion dollar corporation working with other multi-billion dollar corporations would find a better way to keep consumers happy because we are the reason for their heavy profits and repeat business, instead they play this carrot on a stick game with our heads and wallets and in the end we get shafted when you buy that special birthday or Christmas gift in hopes of getting it and it doesn't show.

When you place a pre-order for an item offering Release Day Delivery before the applicable cut-off date and select Standard Delivery, One-Day or Premium Delivery, Amazon .co.UK will dispatch your order prior to the release day, with the intention that it arrives with you on the actual release day.

Items that don't display this message aren't eligible for this service. Amazon Prime members are eligible for Release Day Delivery at no extra cost, as part of their annual Amazon Prime membership.

FREE Release Day Delivery is available on eligible items from our Video Games store whether you’re an Amazon Prime member or not. If you've placed a pre-order for an item for Release Day Delivery and the release day changes, we'll notify you of this change by e-mail.

Does that mean that Amazon has received the payment, or just that the buyer has placed the order. I have some security concerns because of suspicious activity, but if Amazon actually receives payment before you send the item then it doesn’t really matter since Amazon would reimburse me.

When the order is ship confirmed then the customers CC is charged. Then inactivate your listings while you go refresh your memory about how Amazon works.

Flyinghouse: Then inactivate your listings while you go refresh your memory about how Amazon works. Amazon has secured an authorization for a charge on the buyer’s credit card, but Amazon won’t actually charge the card until you mark the order shipped.

If you are selling a pricey electronic device (camera, iPad, iPhone, etc. ), PLEASE, before shipping, make sure you are following all Amazon rules to the letter (your item is allowed, matches all specs, and is in the appropriate condition), and that you protect yourself with things like signature, insurance, recording serial numbers, etc.

Do you see this order in your seller central or are you basing out of an email received? If Amazon shows the order as complete it doesn’t matter if they have received payment.

But what do you see when you click on orders in your seller central page? If it makes you more comfortable, add signature confirmation to the shipment.

Does that mean that Amazon has received the payment, or just that the buyer has placed the order. I have some security concerns because of suspicious activity, but if Amazon actually receives payment before you send the item then it doesn’t really matter since Amazon would reimburse me.

If you use the “by shipping button” it will automatically confirm and enter tracking. After you have done so, put your account on vacation a day and read All the Seller Help files and watch videos.

Between this thread and the one you opened yesterday, you are an accident waiting to happen. The sellers who get scammed are the ones who open an account and put up items, especially expensive electronics, and never do any research at all about how this venue works.

It isn’t that difficult but there are rules, and if you don’t know Amazon ’s procedure and protections in place for sales, you will get scammed. Does that mean that Amazon has received the payment, or just that the buyer has placed the order.

I have some security concerns because of suspicious activity, but if Amazon actually receives payment before you send the item then it doesn’t really matter since Amazon would reimburse me. Then, close up shop as you sound too paranoid to sell online.

I understand buyers having trouble with not sending in payment (I had a nervous Nellie that took her a whole month to pay via PP once), but a seller HAS to depend on the venue they signed up with that the orders are real and you can ship. If you want to sell here, put your inventory on vacation and read everything you can find on the Amazon site that sellers need to know before opening up again.

When you receive an order, Amazon has verified the payment method and is ready to charge the buyer (or have already done so). Once you click on “confirm shipment”, or print a shipping label from Amazon By Shipping Services, Amazon will charge the payment method and the payment for the order will appear in your account, minus fees and shipping.

If the OP hasn’t shipped this November 30 order by now, any advice posted here isn’t going to help him. That doesn’t mean that the message came from the person buying your item.

When an order is made, Amazon verifies payment before even giving you address information. If you have orders that say “Unshipped”, that means Amazon has verified payment and you will receive money to your Amazon balance on Seller Central after you confirm shipment of the order.

Just wondering because I have to get the money together in a day or 2 after I order my item.
