I thought that was it. I noticed over two dozen orders for as many as 120 copies from Amazon in recent weeks in my Vendor Central account. I wasn’t exactly sure why there are so many orders. I thought maybe they were for different warehouses across the United States. Well, I think I have just solved the mystery!
Yesterday, I happen to stumble upon my hardcover being sold by Amazon on Amazon.de. I thought how wonderful! Hmm… This got me thinking. Maybe Amazon are selling my hardcover on other Amazon marketplace as well?!
The hardcover is being sold on a few other Amazon marketplaces by third parties. But, they’re charging a lot more than the cover price.
I am so happy that Amazon are selling my book in so many countries on my behalf, without me lifting a finger. This has only happened because I switched to Vendor Central. And, that only happened because the wonderful Jay Miletsky introduced my book to his book distributor. So, thank you so much, Jay! 🙏
(In case you’re wondering, I printed my hardcover with Jay’s IAPC. As part of the deal for printing clients, he would introduce my book to his book distributor. I’m not sure if he still does this. Please contact Jay, if you’re interested.)
Getting access to a Vendor Central account has opened my hardcover up to huge markets around the world. That wouldn’t have been available if I hadn’t signed with them. Getting my book into a local US bookstore is wonderful. But, getting my hardcover into 8 different countries is AMAZING! 🥳🍾
Now, I’m off to drive traffic to those new Amazon marketplaces. 🤗
So, is Amazon also selling your hardcover internationally?
