They're pissing me off.

I've ordered four motorcycle parts from them this month. Every damn one of them have been wrong.

Carb for KLX110 - Close, but mirror image, won't fit.

Sprockets for DRZ - Front and Rear. Front looked right, just a hair too big to fit splined output shaft. Rear not even close.

Oil Filters for DRZ - Not even close.

In every instance, the pictures were right, the description was right, listed fitment was right.

I guess I'm back to OEM and the dealer's glacial shipping times.

Were the sellers the "Marketplace" or Amazon?

I would also guess that wasn't Amazon actually selling those goods, but acting as middleman. I try to confine myself to ordering from Amazon itself.

Yep, the big question.

50/50.

Two (carb and oil filters) through Amazon by other sellers, both sprockets by "Amazon Services.com" which I assume is Amazon.

Amazon Services is their subscription program to help sellers.

Ah. I'll have to watch for that too then. Thanks.

A couple of months ago I bought a 3.5" pneumatic orbital sander (Dynabrade, just like the ones we had at work before they started shutting us down).

What I received was the 5" model. Same lineup, but 1.5" too big. Thanks, I already have one.

The facepalm moment was when I looked at the original box and saw that the Amazon inventory knucklehead put their internal inventory sticker (which said 3.5") mere millimeters away from where the manufacturer stated 5".

I sent it back for a replacement because right after I bought it (last one in stock), the price jumped from the very reasonable $55 they had it listed at to the SRP of $195 and I still needed one.

That pales in comparison to the experience with Amazon Logistics that drove me to rant, but it happened. I don't know what's going on over there but it's frustrating.

Seattle resident and 20 year Amazon watcher here.

Do an experiment; Don't log in when you do your shopping. Just clear your cookies and do your searches without signing in.

Amazon adjusts prices based on your activities. The more you keep to yourself, the better it'll be for you. Check prices from work, Wi-Fi, etc.

I have Amazon Prime. They are getting to the point where they have 2 day shipping - once it ships. But they are taking days to ship. I'm not talking about the marketplace. But rather sold by Amazon or fulfilled by Amazon. I ordered a book a few weeks ago that was fulfilled by Amazon and got free 2 day shipping, but after 7 days it still had not shipped. I cancelled the order.

Chances are high; you won't like what I've got to say.
