Selling products via Amazon

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Can I please check on the Islamic ruling of buying and setting up as a business a website that sells products through affiliating with amazon.com? The website sells camping gear through referring buyers to buy the product from amazon and amazon handles the shipping of the product and everything else.


A: It seems like Amazon is an agency that will facilitate transactions and perhaps receive a commission for their involvement. It is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
