Amazon is the middle man between you and the seller. The escrow. When you buy something from Amazon, you pay directly to Amazon, no matter who the seller is.
They notify the seller someone has bought something and they have to accept, pack and ship the item. When it’s shipped, Amazon releases the money. It is Amazon that access to your credit card information, not the seller.
