Essentially many of the sellers on this list will ship late, (I guess Amazon requires sellers to send out within two business days after the order is placed)…these sellers sometimes take weeks Many do not provide tracking so if something gets lost in the mail, they don’t know where it is…so good luck getting a refund.
That’s right — if a free book is ‘sold’, it’s weighted just the same as if a buyer forked over cash for the same title. The only thing, then, that matters is how many of whatever title have been snapped up, and that number in turns becomes part of the algorithm used to calculate the sales rank.
The next time you’re in serious need of a laptop on the cheap, consider this: our round-up of the best laptop deals are so affordable that you might just buy one on impulse. For the price you’ll pay, we wouldn’t expect the most killer performance or a 4K screen, but we wouldn’t bank on a laptop that cuts corners either, as every entry on our list makes compromises only in the areas you shouldn’t notice.

What many of these sellers do not understand is that part of internet selling is that you are the eyes and hands of a buyer who isn’t there to look at the product themselves. The sellers on this list lack integrity, honesty, service and if there were employees they would be fired (but they are not employees).
Amazon does not provide a seller directory for every category in every country in which they have a marketplace. There’s quite a lot of variation but Amazon.com specifically does not list sellers of books, DVDs/Blu-rays and CDs. (As an aside, even when there are seller directories some of the top sellers are missing.)

As documentary filmmakers who have published both DVDs and books, my in-laws have experienced Amazon ranking firsthand. They informed me that my book had likely been assigned a number though it was only currently available for pre-order, but the numbers changed all the time, so I might as well wait to look. I could arguably head upstairs to my laptop and get a preliminary sense of the book’s standing immediately, but what was the point?
Those with a Kindle account frequently take advantage of downloading free e-books. Why do we mention this? Because when it comes to the best sellers rank, Amazon does not differentiate between free and not-free books.
Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) posts its most popular items based on unit sales. It calls the list “Amazon Best Sellers.” The list draws from six primary categories, with the top 20 selling items in each. These include toys and games, electronics, camera and photo, video games, books, and clothing, shoes and jewelry. Amazon does not make it entirely clear whether these categories exhaust a list of the very best-selling products, but it presents them as if they were. Amazon also offers free shipping on over 100 million items.
I agree that’s a big concern, but it’s worth taking into account the volume that these sellers do. hippo books got 131,628 feedback in the past 12 months so probably had well in excess of a million orders. If they got 99.9% of the orders right, which would be fantastic, that would still be 1,000 orders they got wrong. I don’t think 30 complaints on the BBB is a lot for a business doing that volume of sales.
