I hope people realize that any buying group or anyone else that gets merchandise in advance of payment can go south at any time. That's even if you get a check at the time of delivery.
X-posting as I don't want anyone to say that I never put a warning here.

Amazon should be the easiest to return. They usually refund you as soon as the shipping lable is scanned when it's picked up.

I know you're asking about USA, but I'll give my data points on MYS.

I had 2 amazon orders of 1 each @$99 (that had been processed/paid out already) and 3 orders of 3 each @$75 that were not checked in yet by the time this whole thing blew up. I also had 1 at Gamestop that was already processed, but they decided to eat the loss there. At their direction, I printed return labels for all 5 amazon orders. Then they said they can only handle the checked in orders. They deducted the payment for those around 10 days ago, crediting back $5 for each item and the shipping charge I reported as well. Of those 2, only one has actually been shipped back - the other they guaranteed they'll send out by the end of today. The wait was not ideal - not including the time the money was technically in my account until it was debited again, I'm essentially floating the money for the orders for a full month. Seems like it'll work itself out in the end though, and with the initial commission plus the return bonus it was still worthwhile.

When I asked about the other orders, they said they're sending them back without opening them, and have already done so for 2 of the 3 (which were UPS). Unfortunately, there were other items in the 2 orders they returned, and they didn't bother asking for details before sending them back. Hopefully I get a full refund from Amazon for everything in each package - if not obviously I'm taking it up with MYS again.

I definitely understand the desire to refuse to accept the sealed packages (so as to save on return shipping), but I think it was done a little sloppily. They probably should have checked with the buyers for each package to see what was in each one first and make sure the buyer agrees.
They’re still paying the commission?

I sent them the labels right away, for 3 PSCs. None of them have been returned yet. That's annoying me alot more than their request (demand) to return them.

My MYS - i had 1 delivered and paid for 99.99 - printed label and waited a while for it to be shipped, was just shipped out today. so amazon will be crediting me back shortly hopefully.
I had another 3 at 74.99 from amazon, still not even scanned in by MYS - waiting for them to scan before i do more labels

Check the original tracking, it's possible they sent it back (ie refuse shipment).

USA is notoriously slow and and known for screwing up. I've barely done any business with them and every time I had, they messed up. Moved on....Let's not discus the 19 box order they posted the wrong link and took a week to tell me it's my fault....

good point.
Just checked my trackings and they are on the way back.
Interesting that they were delivered to Wilmington and rejected from New Castle.

The new warehouse must be the sole staging point going forward. So they probably trucked everything over.
