Everything You Should Know About Amazon Warehouse

Amazon Warehouse resells pre-owned products that have been returned for various reasons. These items can be like new, slightly used, or damaged, and they are sold at a discount.

Amazon employees inspect and grade each product to establish the quality and price—the bigger the damage, the higher the discount.

Most items have a disclaimer regarding the damaged packaging, which doesn’t mean the product itself is faulty.
