Duplicates at Kobo from D2D
« on: March 30, 2014, 11:19:07 AM »
Apologies if this has been talked about already, I can't find it. Recently there were some issues with publishing books to Kobo through Draft2Digital. It looks like Kobo is finally starting to publish my titles again. The issue is, there are now duplicates of all my titles they re-accepted. Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes, me too. In an email from D2D about this a while ago they said they'd put our books on Kobo again then remove the original version. So there should only be duplicates temporarily. Something about a new system Kobo is using. I'm not sure if the links to our Kobo books we have on our websites etc. will need to change.

Yes, I have duplicates too. I was under the impression that we have to change the links at our web sites etc ourselves.

Of course. I was just querying whether the new books would have a different link, but I guess it's obvious they will.

Does anyone know when they will be removing the duplicates? I've recently had a sale then put my price back up, but on Kobo I've still got the older copy at the sale price. So now Amazon is price matching to it, and just sent me an angry-mail telling me to change my price. I'm going to give D2D a couple of days before I contact them to see if they will do it manually for me (they are good with that!) because I know they are working on it and don't want to bug them, but I hope it will be soon.

Selina, D2D are pretty fast in manually changing prices at Kobo (yes, they're really good with that!). I emailed them that I needed to have prices increased on Kobo before updating the prices on Amazon and the updates happened in just a few hours.
