Amazon repricing paperback?
« on: August 17, 2017, 12:33:29 AM »
Hi! I have a paperback that is priced at $10.99, but Amazon seems to have adjusted it to $10.44. Anyone know why this happens?

Amazon can (and does) sell products for whatever price they choose (just as any other retailer can). They often discount the prices of books from the retail list price. You'll still earn the royalty amount for any sales as indicated in your Dashboard. The difference comes out of Amazon's share of the revenue.

If you are not in the US, looking at a book on the US site, you will often see a different price. Sometimes it's because you have your own country's site, sometimes because of the exchange rate. That's the only thing I can think of.

My experience has been that if a paperback sells well out of the gate, Amazon will discount it (sometimes significantly). This is great for you as the author because you still receive the same amount of royalties and a cheaper book is easier to push to readers. One of my non-fiction paperbacks was discounted to $3.59, only ten cents more than the ebook, and that's been a recipe for AMS ads that really rake in the cash.
