Default If I sell on Amazon and run out of stock can I drop ship FROM amazon?

Lets say I'm selling on amazon and run out of stock on a item and amazon is also selling it, can I just order from them and dropship it? I'm not using amazon prime.

Yes you can, but it's too risk and I wouldn't do it

You can but 1) you need to make sure that your dropshipper quality is proper and 2) no delays in shipping (among other concerns - for example)

That's happened to me a couple times. I'd rather dropship and take a loss than have to cancel an order. What @rsot said in #1 is very important. I find the quality of FBA products poor more often than not or they send wrong item. I would rather send me the product first for inspection if you have enough of a delivery timeframe.

I buy enough from Amazon that I can confirm this is the truth. In most cases, there are no problems with the products Amazon sends you. But many times it is another company selling and using FBA. That is a little bit more risky. In most cases you will be fine using them to fill orders, but just because an item is in FBA does not mean it is authentic or that the quality is good.

I wouldn't use Amazon to drop-ship an order RECEIVED on Amazon. I don't know if they are actively looking for this type of thing, but it COULD be easily found if they search for it. My GUESS is that Amazon wouldn't like it.

If I did this and was caught, I would tell Amazon that I ran out of an item unintentionally and - rather than disappoint the customer - I decided to fill the order using Amazon even though it cost me a few bucks. That explanation MIGHT work.

Default Is it against amazon's TOS if I dropship from them to my orders received on amazon?

I asked this question before but I wasn't very clear on the details.

Lets say I sell on amazon and a customer orders from me but then I realize I'm out of stock so I buy from amazon and then have it shipped directly to my customer.

Is that against amazon's policies? I'm not saying I'm buying from another vendor, I'm saying I'm buying directly from amazon.com

Preferable to not double up on basically the same topic.

Without slogging thru the TOS I would hazard a guess that AZ wouldn't give a rats ass if you drop shipped their items. They would probably be thrilled to profit twice on one transaction from you. You would run into issues if you ship using prime however.
