When the seller absorbs all or part of the actual freight cost?

The seller can absorb the actual freight cost for shipped products under two conditions: (1) if it is a Product Lifecycle Management service of the seller and the shipping company he uses in his online marketplace. In other words, if the buyer’s package is being sold as part of a product that was manufactured by or for Amazon and then shipped to him to fulfill an order, then Amazons fee stops counting as actual shipping cost . (2) If the seller has specified that all shipping costs are borne by him in amazon’s online store. In this case, is important that none of the terms & conditions between seller and customer mention “shipping” at all (usally with regards food, booze etc), so that if sells an item that involves Amazon Shipping service like FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) , ASIN number, label printing, etc.. Adhering to these two situations also implies having several more specialized warehouses set up around the world where goods are stored before they are sent out yet again to fulfill a different order.
