No, you can't get any info about who bought it. Just the size, style, and color. When I sell a new design I'm always shouting to the kitchen, "Did you plug that shirt? Who lives in Cleveland?" etc. because it's great when friends buy a shirt, but frickin' awesome when the sale is 100% organic. It means my listing is done somewhat correctly, with searchable words that lead people who would buy it, to it.

 
I've been trying to noodle around with the keywords to draw in people and I've put some image links on my Tumblr and Pinterest pages.  I don't care so much about who buys it as much as how they found it as well.

The program that Proclivities and I are using to sell T-shirts on Amazon may be branching out into other products... someone spotted "Hoodie" in the source code for the page we use to make our listing... wasn't long before someone found a live "test" listing. I'm sure the image is something they rejected from someone like me, last year. I'm also sure that if you order it, they will cancel. But hey, never hurts to try...

Sorry! We couldn't find that page. Try searching or go to Amazon's home page.
Leave it to Amazon to have a cool 404, though.  The 'product not found' page gives a link allowing the viewer to get to know the dogs of Amazon.

"I'm so glad someone finally put this information out. I never would've been able to approach my cat about gun safety, or overcome my fears that maybe he was in league with the dark lord. Now I can put all of my anxiety to bed and have a more meaningful relationship with my cat. Thank you Mr. Auburn!"

That shirt's pretty funny, especially the "an image" line.  It's an interesting idea to just have a stranger do a design from a random/senseless phrase - probably a little more challenging if there is a language barrier.

 
Mrs. Islander has a cousin in Europe that overbuys clothes. She is often the beneficiary of the occasional purge. I've always been kind of fascinated by the random use of English words on their clothes with no context or meaning.

I just realized that maybe the seller is buying/selling in something like Phillipine pesos and forgot to do the conversion.
 
It could also be a decimal-place error; those bottles can go for $25-$30 apiece.

I don't know what people are thinking, and that's probably a mistake made by someone in a faraway land. FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) says you can buy stuff, ship it to Amazon and have them sell it for you. That's how Costco products show up on Amazon; some people are willing to pay for the Kirkland brand or Trader Joes brand even tho it can be had for less at the store. So if I had a FBA account, I could do that and set my own price; it's a niche thing too. If Contigo upgraded their line and the blue ones are discontinued or the new tops aren't as good as the old ones, there's a way to take advantage of that and get them at a cut rate, sell them at a premium... 
 
Or you can just set them super high and hope a government employee doesn't look very close.  
 
If I ever get that flavor of Amazon sellers account I'll try it. Can of Pringles for $99.
