Disposal or return

by Seller_VYUlIfS3xxHIE

Is it cheaper to ask Amazon to dispose of units returned and labeled as “defective” by customers or return these units to me so I can dispose of these items myself? Most of these units weigh below 1 lb; and a few units that weight between 1 and 2 lbs.

Thank you so much for your help!

I would think the dispose option is cheaper. They just throw it in a grinder. For a return you have to pay the return shipping.

Return or disposal costs the same. It used to be much cheaper to dispose of units.

Do you have your own brand? If so, I would advise never allowing Amazon to dispose of them – always have them returned. “Dispose” does not mean destroy. Some items are destroyed for various reasons. But most are liquidated. And if you have your own brand you may have trouble with it resurfacing and being offered elsewhere for very low prices – possibly in less than the condition you would wish to be presented to the buying public.

Keeping in mind the words of wisdom @bookwormapril said…

… Amazon disposal should cost less than returning to you. Amazon most likely will place it on a pallet with many other returns and sell it out the back door. But don’t count on seeing any of that profit off the pallet sale.
