Some people say there is but I doubt Amazon would let anyone do that, I'm hoping the Warriors in here can give me the final answer to my burning question.

I'm not aware of any way to do that, short of shipping to yourself and then re-packaging and shipping to the buyer. What you're describing is a drop-shipping scenario. Many online retailers will do this (many will even put your label on the package so it appears you are the vendor). But if Amazon has an approved way to do that for everyday Joe's and Jane's like us, I don't know about it.

yes you can remove the receipt from the parcel just tick that it is Gift Item and they will not send the receipt bill.

I don't know about the box, may be the amazon box will be mention there but you can ask the supplier to not to give in amazon box.

I hope this helps

You seem to be inquiring about Fulfillment by Amazon. Where you set up an arrangement to have your items stored by amazon to be shipped. I believe it is just to buyers on their site I believe. Not sure. Sears has a similar program as well.

I'm not 100%, but having received "gifted" packages from relatives around the holidays, I'm confident in my memory that you still receive a manifest, similar to an invoice but of course, without the prices.

That manifest (as I'll call it) just defines what is in the package, whether there is more boxes coming, and information regarding the possibility of a return.

On top of all of that, every Amazon purchase I've ever made or recieved, has been clearly marked in an amazon box.

Having said all of this, jchoros, I would recommend not trying to drop ship with Amazon for these reasons.

Cheers.

The only way I know its done is that it is sent as a gift item. I know for sure a lot of people do drop shipping successfully and never had a problem even though the sold an amazon product via ebay. Hope that helps

The gifting method will work in that customer won't see the invoice with the price on it. But when your customer realizes it came from Amazon might be a different story (this is assuming your selling on eBay, for example, then sourcing the product from Amazon).

Amazon isn't a dropshipper. If you're using FBA you still need to send the products to Amazon for them to ship.

Over the years, I have never received anything from Amazon that didn't have their logo plastered on the box or other mailer, gift or not.

That being said, you could simply say that the item will be shipped by Amazon and leave it at that. A little on the sneaky side for my taste, but not an overt lie...
