What does AMZ mean?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ive just picked up a Logitech MX Master, For £40 (What a deal!), But the listing says Logitech MX Master AMZ, This is on amazon uk, and theirs 2 options, One thats the non amz and the one that is, The non amz being normal price. What does the AMZ mean? Does it impact the product? I cant find anything on google.

 

Thanks.

It's a seller trick. The listing probably says "for AMZ" or something like that. Some sellers will do that to get their identical product on a different listing so it shows up in search results independently from Amazon's listing for the "Logitech MX Master". It's usually done in conjunction with other shady practices that drive it up in the rankings, in hopes that consumers see that, click on it and buy it before they find the listing that everyone else's MX Master is under.

 

It's an identical product.

Is it sold by Amazon, or just fulfilled by Amazon? FBA just means that the seller has shipped some quantity of that product to an Amazon distribution center, and Amazon will handle shipping it to consumers from there.

Amazon allows companies to list their products on the website and just use Amazon as a payment processor (in exchange for a fee)  or to use Amazon as payment processor AND as the shipper (the company that ships the product to you).

The company ships the items to Amazon warehouse, then lists the products on Amazon's website and Amazon takes care of the payment and shipping to you. If it says Sold by xyz and fullfilled by Amazon ... that's what happens.

 

That company probably sells the same product on eBay or other such online stores, so the "AMZ" code in the title is probably just their way of tracking where the product sells better, or to decide if they can increase the price a bit or not (if it sells too well)  and so on ..

It states "Dispatched from and sold by Amazon" in the for AMZ style where the other only has listings for resellers (and one of those is the Amazon warehouse deals) so it's likely that they made a new entry for one reason or another.

I have ordered an AMZ mouse on 3 occasions, each time returned as  not to standard, not as described. Amazon assured me this item was in fact incorrectly shown and the item would be removed from their web site. It hasn't. the website is still available, and has the video showing the Bluetooth select button, which of course does not exist on the actual mouse. Not bothered to continued to mess around with Amazon for this item.
