Minnesota Musing: How to Purchase or Sell an Item on Amazon
When you go to Amazon, you are given an search option. You type in your item and it offers you all the options that are available. Some sellers offer brand new merchandise, but sometimes you are given options to purchase slightly used merchandise.
As you make your selection and enter in the amounts of the item or items you wish to buy, your next step is to press the colored area labeled Checkout. Checkout takes you to a service screen where you make sure they know where to ship your purchase and then you confirm your banking or billing information. Once all this information is complete and verified, you just click a submit button and you will receive a confirmation of the sale.
It will become so easy, you may end up with a callous on the bottom of your hand from using your mouse.
At least, that is my story. I have a callous on the wrist bone that my hand rests on. It's a little tender at moments, but it is toughening up with all the shopping that I have done lately.
What I Have Purchased Through Amazon
The latest things that I have purchased through Amazon are as follows:
I purchased a new gas cap for our Honda 2000 generator the other day. For some reason, we could not locate our original gas cap that came with the generator. We looked everywhere, on every shelf, in every nook and cranny in our few sheds. To no avail. Finally, I typed it into Amazon. I clicked on it, went through checkout and clicked submit.
It arrived this morning. The other gas cap may show up someday, but I'm not going to hold my breath waiting.
Yes. I love to purchase things on Amazon. I have purchased car parts, movies, books, floor mats for my truck, lotion, a hotspot battery, a camera, a cover for my phone and many other items.
