If the seller is based in china or the product is not fulfilled by Amazon let the buyer beware he may have to wait/fight for his money back, and the likelihood of it shipping is slim to none.

Why is that? I'm a powerseller and I don't have a store.
Because your deals are not made to be posted here...

Good to know! What a world we live in. And really surprised to see how many people fall into these traps.

Possible price mistake  -- New seller just launched - beware

Most items priced under $5 -- some new some used etc

Masa Shopping  - storefront
https://www.amazon.com/sp?_encoding=UTF8&asin=B00HLSTYNS&isAmazonFulfilled=0&isCBA=&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&orderID=&seller=A17U0SHD98DA36&tab=&vasStoreID=

Example:
Decobros Heavy Duty 3 bag laundry sorter cart  -- Reg $39.87

Masa shopping has it at $4.09 new
https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00HLSTYNS/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

intersting enough Masa shopping made the list

If you look back at any of the stores posted in this thread you'll find that all of them turned out to be scammers.
It's really not that difficult to scam buyers on Amazon.

Ditto, plus the .01 offer is used
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

If seller "doesn't look reputable" why bother ?

What's the worst that could happen?
Doesn't Amazon protect the consumer?
Does the buyer get our cc info?

What's this guy chasing?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
