ICUrpoint thanks empathy and common sense response. The fees Amazon is charging is unreasonable.

They get 15% cut and the sellers a fraction of that. Realistically sellers are getting less than 3% profit yet assume 100% the risk. Amazon operations are set up to squeeze the weakest in their control. Amazon business model isn't the same as during the upstart of the industrial age?

If you hear people boasting of how much they are making on Amazon don't believe it. Sellers are in competition with people who either get merchandise for near free, lie and Amazon does nothing to them or the seller is a non-profit. The Amazon business model can not do anything good for the American economy.

Buyers before crowing about great deals ask yourself how important is a 'good buy'.

What kind of world will your children acquire? Someone will have to pay the price and if not you who?
