Amazon is one of the world’s oldest and strongest trading portals online. Competing with eBay, Amazon has no other competitors of similar stature, and unlike eBay, Amazon sells many of its own products which has earnt it the title of “the world’s largest online retailer”.
Everyone who browses the web much will have undoubtedly stumbled across Amazon many times – they’re especially big on book sales but sell everything – you can set up your own store there and sell your own products just like you can on eBay.
Being such a popular website, they’re inundated with enquiries, and inline with the done thing these days, they funnel as many troubled consumers into FAQs as they can. For those who still need answers, they have a ticketting system where you can post your question to Amazon’s support staff and patiently wait for them to reply online.
As for the good, old-fashioned telephone system, it does exist, but is a nightmare to track down. Here it is in all its glory. Happy phoning.
