Amazon doesn't like my negative review comment

I posted when Amazon asked for my review on an ordered item. Well, basically I never got the product and still waiting for it. I found out that it was being shipped from China or at least offshore, though ordered though US location. No where did the advertised product offer where it was coming(actual location) from. I liked the price and ordered it. I have yet to receive it and gee that alone is poor performance IMHO. But, Amazon won't post negative review and replied back it wasn't going to post. You can guess what my response to that would be in private. I've ordered the product on Mar. 24. -----Willy Sad

That's B.S

How would they like it if you asked for a refund ?

I've read where...

If you legibility got refunds and were too many, they would kick you out. I can't say under what terms that gets you booted but effectively if you've asked too many times even if under reasonable terms or what have you, they get the boot. I'm sure it comes to bucks spend, etc. but gee if you can't deliver a good performing product or even get the product, what is a consumer to do? Oh well...I have a long memory too.

At least they replied back

I suppose they gave no reason why. When I order from Amazon, I try to look for them to either stock the product themselves or fulfill the order for their 3rd party partners. If an item shows as "fulfilled by Amazon" that's supposed to mean they actually have it in their own warehouses and are acting on behalf of a partner. Sometimes you'll find identical items shipped and sold by Amazon or fulfilled by them but at different prices. Amazon uses what's called "dynamic pricing" which means items in your cart can change based on current demand. There's a website called camelcamelcamel dot com that will even show pricing history if you're interested in capturing something at a lower than current price. I use that for items that don't need soon. In any event, if you've paid by credit card, they're supposed to work with you to resolve problems with vendors. It's a pain but, as a last resort, keep that in mind. Amazon tends to not charge until one's order is out the door. If your card has been charged and you have no shipping information a month later, contact your CC company about your options.
