Flash! “Tell Us About a Lower Price” at Amazon

Flash! “Tell Us About a Lower Price” at Amazon

Maybe this is something I just haven’t noticed before, but it’s interesting!

I’ve seen it on a couple of e-books, Agency Model and not.

There’s a link, under the Amazon Bestsellers Rank, that says “tell us about a lower price”. 

When I clicked that link, I got a choice to say whether it was online or at a store.  Online, I got this:

Found a lower price? Let us know. Although we can’t match every price reported, we’ll be using your input to ensure that our prices remain competitive.

Where did you see a lower price?

Actually, maybe this has been around for a while, since it asks for a shipping price.  :) 
Agency Model books should be the same at every “sales agent” under that agreement.
I would definitely suggest you use this…I think it’s great that Amazon makes it available.  It’s way to gather competitive data, and that will help keep Kindle prices low.

    I used that link soon after the Penguin settlement, because “A Murderous Procession” was $17.99 at Amazon and $12.99 for a different ereader. Since then, AMP came down to $12.99 very briefly, then back up to $17.99, and is $17.99 everywhere now. (The hardback is $17.13 at Amazon.) I’m not hard-core about price, but there was no way I was paying that much for an ebook, so I got the book from the library.

      Thanks for writing, Sherri!

      I appreciate that…I just hadn’t noticed it, I guess. That’s that cognitive mapping thing…
