Selling Books Online is Crazy

March 21, 2010

Selling books online is a crazy occupation. The longer I do it, the more I learn and the more nice people I meet. I have a few people who always try to buy from me first. I also have a few on my “never again” list. The great ones far out-number the problems and sometimes the feedback is so nice it makes my day!

I don’t think I’ll ever understand the mysteries of Amazon.com though, no matter how hard I try! Amazon was the first site I used; the only site I used at first when I was only selling my own books. Even when I expanded to other sites, Amazon was the best venue for me. Everything changed last week. There was a few days where the site had some trouble processing orders. The problem has been resolved, whatever it was, but my sales have all but stopped. The other sites are fine. It drives me crazy but I know it will turn around and one of the other sites will die off.

Other booksellers have the same problems. If anybody has figured it out I’d sure love to know about it.
