Amazon Marketplace, which was renamed Seller Central, is the portal where you can sell more books consumer to consumer. It was initially set up to offer used books and allow titles to be sold at discounted prices. However, now it currently provides authors with another avenue to sell their books and reach more customers.
Before you sign up for Amazon Seller Central make sure it fits into your overall book marketing strategy.
AMAZON’S SELLER CENTRAL TIPS:
Tip: In the Seller Central portal you will be competing against your book in other Amazon programs and with other book sellers. These sellers buy your book at a discount from a distributor and resell it on Seller Central just to make a buck or two while getting customers through their portal. No matter how much the book is discounted in seller central, you are still earning full commission from your distributor.
