Electric toothbrushes are one thing all of us have likely considered getting or have somewhere floating around on our wish list. Oral-B Pro rarely discounts products as heavily as they did on Prime Day, but it’s still at over $100 off right now.
The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside.
Amazon best books of 2017 so far – a set of rankings curated by Amazon editors – the mid-year version of the popular list of Amazon’s Best Books of the Year. The lists include titles featured as the Best Books of the Month, as well as worthwhile new releases.
As the strongest Windows competitor to the MacBook Air’s ultrabook dominance, Windows fans will find a lot to be happy about with this Asus model. It has a beautiful design, 5 hours of battery life, an Intel i5 processor and solid state hard drive. There is also an i7 processor model available, though it falls out of the $1000-$1200 price range.
In a press release pushed out on December 26, to highlight its successes during the festive period, Amazon says it saw a big increase in the number of Prime trials being taken, a big bump in the number of people shopping from its mobile apps and, to sweeten the acerbic reception that greeted its ill-fated Fire Phone, big sales for its own-brand TV streaming devices.
“I still absolutely LOVE my Kindle Keyboard and use it almost every day. I have read dozens of books on it. I like the newer models, they have some neat features, but the experience of reading a book on them is no better or worse than on my Kindle Keyboard.” – Ron Cronovich, Amazon reviewer
Amazon has their own “bestseller” rankings for books, based upon categories. If you’re in the Top 100 in your Amazon category, you will see a “bestseller ranking” below the title. A book at the #1 spot in any given category will get a “#1 Best Seller” banner featured next to the title. This lets potential customers know the book is the top-selling item in that category. If a book holds the top spot in a category for months, that’s saying Hitting it for an hour (which is how often Amazon refreshes its rankings), screen-shotting it, and calling yourself a “bestselling author” for life? Well…
Amazon Japan’s seller directory only lists “top sellers” rather than all sellers. The same is true for the directories of book sellers in China and India. Amazon’s definition of top sellers is not known, so there might be sellers on Amazon Japan, or who only sell books in India or China, with higher feedback than those shown above.
By 2021, Amazon is expected to take at least half of all online sales. The company has built out its e-commerce dominance mainly from selling tons of items at cheaper prices — and with faster delivery — than its competitors. That means the products, and how many of them it sells, are very important to the company.
You can even narrow it down to talk about and sell the specific chemicals they need in their darkroom… while featuring only those products you already know have a great success rate of selling on Amazon.
Amazon does nothing to stop any of these practices. Also, quite a few on this list are drop shippers and spider sellers. Some do not have inventory, so if you need to return a product what happens is you are suppose to ship it back to whoever they buy it from, who many or may not reimbursed the seller you bought from…you end up not getting reimbursed. It’s a whole scam. Also, many of these stores are the same store (they hire others to open a store on Amazon, they have no product, but the same book is listed almost the same wording and same condition (or in the condition, they tell you they have a bunch of satisfied customers), just a few pennies difference…want to know if they really have the book…ask a question and they will say ‘we can’t answer you because it is in a warehouse in bumf*** wherever, lol)
Last week, I put up a fake book on Amazon. I took a photo of my foot, uploaded to Amazon, and in a matter of hours, had achieved “No. 1 Best Seller” status, complete with the orange banner and everything.
