Basically that payment is thru Amazon it less of a chance than going directly on line to sellers from all reports. Amazon seems to be every strict on second party sellers. Paying a higher price is something that happens even to some with brick store shopping; so I don't see it as really a rip off because one makes that choice.

got a question, never ordered any pantry before. but ordered some instant noodles and other pantry stuff. I am on West coast and it's being shipped from East coast. so my question is after amazon gave it to the shipping guys. do they know it's pantry do they avoid from direct sunlight or avoid putting it in the truck for prolong of time? don't think they know it's pantry and when they ship they stay in the truck of course..afraid my pantry will go bad from sunlight and hot summer heat in the truck!!! checked many reviews on amazon and didn't find anything about shipping compliant regarding my question. but I mean pretty sure it stays in the truck for a long time and maybe will expose to direct sunlight sometimes too?!?!?!?

No doubt the trucks know they are transporting perishables.
Often, they use refrigerator trucks. I think you'll be happy with your order.
Let us know how it worked out.

Amazon sellers who ship perishables nearly always specify overnight shipping. As far as I know, Amazon itself doesn't sell perishables.

When did UPS or USPS strart using refrigerated trucks?

actually it's instant noodle and some hot sauce. It's taking them a week to ship from eastcoast to west coast! so it will be in the truck for awhile!

most are sold by 3rd party and fulfilled by amazon, man I am getting worried that it will go bad!!!

I've been ordering from Amazon too, though have never ordered food (even dry goods food, i.e. pasta, noodles that need to have water added, etc.) from them. However, if Amazon takes pains to make sure these don't go bad & delivers them quickly, I may consider something like this. Their prices are typically great.

The reminds me of an interesting article I read about 15 years ago. A guy living alone set out to prove that he could survive by just getting items (including food, of course) either mail-ordered or delivered, and never leave his house because of this. IIRC, he did this for a year, successfully.

Besides those named items probably face worse conditions in warehousing and shipment long before amazon even sees them.
