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)

Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is followed by J. D. Vance’s book named by The Times as one of “6 books to help understand Trump’s win.” Hillbilly Elegy is a powerful and passionate look at the struggles of America’s white working class and a troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream.
Midyear sales figures for the video game industry show two things — the staying power of hot holiday sellers and which spring releases have found a loyal audience. While the positions shift (and many titles fall off the charts) once the holiday months arrive, they’re a good barometer of publisher health.
You don’t have to go far down the list to find merchants who have really embraced selling on multiple marketplaces across Europe. But three of the highest-placed cross-border merchants are not European companies – JEDirect are from the US, while Anker (with two European accounts) and Sunvalley are both Hong Kong-based companies.
For the authors: I hope my story illustrates that the best marketing tactic you can use for a book is to write a great book that actually sells over the long term. It’s easy to be seduced by best-seller lists, sales numbers, speaking fees, and all the ephemera in this industry. Don’t let all of that make you lose sight of the importance of quality and authority in your work. Anyone can be a one-hit wonder; focus on crafting a book that will sell for decades.
Man people are stupid around here bitching about the cardboard when that is what makes it customizable as well… you still have to use the software to go along with it which is not much more than a regular game.
After the US, Italy has gained the most sellers in the top 1,000, adding 14 to the list. The UK has lost the most sellers, followed by Germany with 86 on the list this year compared to 108 last year. Sellers whose primary marketplace is Amazon Mexico are yet to make a showing.
It should be noted here that Amazon doesn’t have anything against selling cheap knockoffs. They just don’t like it when you lie about what it really is or who really made it. So, I’m not telling you this method because I condone it, but merely to keep you informed doesn’t Amazon seller. Someday it could happen to you! Know how to protect yourself from having your product listing hijacked.
Amazon’s decision to deeply discount its voice-powered Echo devices for Prime Day appears to be paying off for the online retailer. Though Prime Day is still underway this afternoon, Amazon has already sold more Echo devices than it did on Prime Day last year, it says.
This new API lets us provide real-time repricing (basically we can make changes to your prices as your competitors make changes, rather than waiting an hour to see if any changes need to be made), 100% accurate knowledge of Amazon’s offer, featured merchant status of your competitors and we’ll always know the lowest FBA offer, even when the “bucket” system would make it unavailable.
Some items are also less expensive for customers with Prime subscriptions. When there is more than one price for an item, we used the base price. One reason for varying prices for the same item is that several vendors may sell them. Amazon updates all best-seller lists once an hour, although based on our observations, the lists do not change much hour-to-hour.

The listings shown to your right are a great example. Every seller on the first page has a 90% rating or above. However, you can see that a seller with a 90% rating ranks higher than a 100% rating. It seems that as long as you hit 90% positive feedback, anything extra won’t have a huge impact on the Buy Box.
To show you what’s going on behind the scenes when you use Amazon, let’s start by looking at the URL for a search term you might want to rank a product for. When I search for “stove top espresso makers” from Amazon’s home page, here’s the URL that we get, shown in the image below:
The rank for one product can, of course, be different on different Amazon stores, as each store represents a different ‘market’ per se. For example, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is #17 in the Indian store, while #9,168 in Amazon.com.

My number that night was a little under 450,000, which — even as a novice — I had to assume wasn’t quite Fifty Shades of Grey status yet. But presumably the ranking would go up — or down, as the case may be — when the novel actually went on sale. Either way, I did a little research into how the rating system works and learned that very little concrete information is available.
This is a fantastic list to motivate current and new sellers. It is well thought out, detailed and well presented. Well done! Amazon do get bad press time to time. What most sellers forget is that Amazon only charges on the sale of the item. Unlike Ebay or PPC where it is a pure gamble unless you know what you are doing. I would however add caution to ensure offline and other sales channels are also utilised and not rely 100% on Amazon sales.
if you do a Google search they have a lot of complaints. Unfortunately Amazon is not interested in good sellers, just whoever makes the most money for them like Anybook for example, another crook that Amazon allows to stay, despite horrible complaints.

“The secret to cracking the New York Times Best Sellers list is that they only compile the list based on certain stores that report their figures,” she explains. “The first question any book lover should ask when you go into a book store is, ‘Are you a New York Times reporting bookstore?'”
