If you’re drop shipping as your entire business model or as part of your business on Amazon, make sure you have the ability to obtain invoices that predate when you shipped your goods to. That predate that consumer’s order of your goods so that you can justify your sales to Amazon and keep selling your products. < MORE >
If you’re an Amazon seller and you’re drop shipping, be super careful because Amazon’s rules are so strict when it comes to drop shipping that you can’t farm it out to other people and not keep your hands on it. You certainly don’t want to send anybody $25,000 to create an account that you can create for free. < MORE >
Amazon drop shipping suspensions on sellers for dropshipping directly from places like Sam’s Club/Walmart directly to customers.

Drop shipping, or allowing a third-party to fulfill orders to customers on your behalf, is generally acceptable. If you intend to fulfill orders using a drop shipper, you must always:
- Be the seller of record of your products;
- Identify yourself as the seller of your products on all packing slips, invoices, external packaging, and other information included or provided in connection with them;
- Remove any packing slips, invoices, external packaging, or other information identifying a third-party drop shipper prior to shipping the order;
- Be responsible for accepting and processing customer returns of your products; and
- Comply with all other terms of your seller agreement and applicable Amazon policies.
Examples of drop shipping that is not permitted:
- Purchasing products from another online retailer and having that retailer ship directly to customers, if the shipment does not identify you as the seller of record or if anyone other than you (including the other online retailer) appears on packing slips, invoices, or external packaging; or
- Shipping orders with packing slips, invoices, external packaging, or other information indicating a seller name or contact information other than your own.
