Reported the last ten posts! Hope you guys manage to get free! It would be so much nicer if we could just price at 0 on Amazon, but what can you do?

    Tom, to do free at B&N you have to go through a distributor like D2D or Smashwords.

    I'm going through the last couple pages and report free books.  Can you guys help me with my new release?

    NOT FREE at Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00N56DZVC

    Free at Kobo:
    http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/bringing-a-ghost-to-life

    Free at iTunes:
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id914095286

    Nook is still processing.

    Thanks for your help!

    Well, my book is free in the US and Canada stores, but not in the UK, Australia, or anywhere else, apparently.
    Let's see if this works...
    Here is the amazon uk link:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00L2G0YPC?*Version*=1&*entries*=0
    And in the UK, you can get it for free here:
    http://www.nook.com/gb/ebooks/the-inventors-son-the-beginning-by-sb-james/9781501465529
    I'll start with that and see how it goes. I have already sent a message to KDP as I did when I wanted to get the price match done originally.
    If anyone needs me to report a book free with a US account, I'd be more than happy to do it, but I don't have accounts in any of the other Amazon stores.
    Thanks so much!

    My first book is finally free, but only after I emailed Amazon directly.

    Thanks to everyone who reported my lower price and I'll keep reporting anyone who still isn't free yet. Good luck to all!

    Just curious, what do you guys say when you email Amazon directly? I just get the standard "We reserve the right to set our retail prices" line.

    What I did was go to the contact us page and put it under the price matching option.
    From the KDP Bookshelf page, got to Help>Contact Us (at the bottom left corner of the page)>Whats the Problem>Pricing & Royalties>Price Matching. In there, I typed a little note about how my book was free elsewhere and gave them links to B&N, Kobo AND Apple, and that I'd like it to be free at amazon as well, and I'm publishing a new book soon, etc, etc. and within a few hours they had price matched it in the US and Canada, but not other countries as of yet  >:(  But also, they do not give you an email saying they matched the price, so far as I know. You get a surprise when you look at your book page.

    Yeah, that's basically what I said in my email and they didn't help me. I was just wondering if they have some sort of metric to determine whether they'll match a book or not, or if it's just up to the mood of whoever received your request. I'm not sure what they gain by not matching it - I'm not selling any books through Amazon right now anyway. It's no loss to them.
