Amazon MarketPlace Vendors have to option to ship all their stock to Amazon
for warehousing and, when called for, shipping to customers. When they sell
such an item, its shipping becomes an Amazon Warehouse event, the vendors
needn't bother their pretty little heads about it.
That's "Fulfillment by Amazon", ak (on the river) a "FBA".
