Amazon has figured out a new way to upset me

Today, I received a package with no shipping box. I simply received the product box, which was starting to come open.

WTH

I got two of those awhile back; both audio products... a Tivoli two piece AM/FM clock stereo table radio, and a set of amplified 2.1 computer speakers. Shipping labels just slapped directly on the product boxes. All well inside, but boxes took a beating. I was peeved, too, but both were good deals.
Forgiven, but not forgotten.
Was your product intact?

Third party seller.

I ordered a box of nitrile gloves from a 3rd party seller -- free shipping with Prime rather than free Prime shipping. It was just a thin box with a punch-out flap to act as a dispenser. Received the box with a label slapped across the top so the flap wouldn't open.

The box was crushed, but the gloves were intact.

I went back to look at the listing and it turned out that the seller actually disclosed in the "more" section of the description (hidden behind the "more" link") that they would be mailing just the box and it might arrive with some aesthetic damage from shipping.

Delivered as promised and at a good price. Not happy, but it's hard to stay pissed off. I got what I ordered. It's not like it was fragile.

My stuff did arrive intact, a new shower head.

I guess that Amazon would be a bad place to order your realistic 10 inch...

I've seen this, some products are labeled as "ready to ship".

I guess Amazon is trying to save costs while claiming it is green.

I've gotten several damaged books lately form them that I had to return. They put put big heavy paperbacks in a flimsy envelope and they arrive with gouges, corners bent, creases, etc. Not acceptable.

No box shipping seems like a cost saving measure at the risk of more returns due to damage to the product in transit. No doubt the beancounters have already figured out where the $ lies, and honestly the care taken in many packing jobs leaves a lot to be desired so why even bother?

......I think it depends on the person that puts your order together.....some are more conservative so will box with padding, etc.......but some will just send it out 'as is' or with little to no packaging to get as many orders out as possible......
