I listed my paperback on Amazon for $17.86, now it is being sold for $17.62.  Not a big difference, but I just don't understand what's happening here.  I am not selling it anywhere else.  Is there a lower price somewhere Amazon is trying to match?  If it is going to keep dropping, then I'm glad I started with a medium-high price.  Anyone else experience this?  Note: I did list the book for expanded distribution, so that may figure in, though I don't think I've had any exp. dist. sales yet.

Amazon, like every other retailer in a free-market economy, can set whatever price they like for the products they offer. You, the publisher, only control the retail list price, which is a suggested price, like MSRP.

As noted above, for paperback sales, you'll earn the amount indicated in your KDP Bookshelf for that book, no matter what price Amazon charges its customers.
