BNN Minimum Pricing
Dec 8th, 2011 at 11:38am
 
Did I miss something?† I thought the minimum price for book listings on BNN was 1.99, but I've been finding some books listed for .99.† Have they changed their minimum?

I must have missed it to, because sure enough, there are .99 prices now. I've also noted there are some "phantom listings" showing up - kind of placeholder listings for items that have apparently been sold or deleted. They show a zero price and "not available" type of message. Not sure why they're springing up.

When I first posted this question their "Seller Integration Manual" from August 2011 stated:
Quote:
Pricing rules for books have been established for BN.comís Sellers in order to provide an
equitable environment for both Sellers and customers. The pricing rules state:
All listings must be priced between $1.99 and $2,500.


Their apparently revised Seller Policies, which I just checked, now reads:
Quote:
All listings must be priced between $0.01 and $2,500. If you would like a higher price cap, please
contact Seller Relations.

I like BNN, but, alas, it looks like they've decided to follow Amazon's lead and join the "race to the bottom" pricing strategy.† Good for them, bad for us.† Sad

Agreed. Not the best news I've had this week! But if I have inventory that's gone that low in price, I'm trying to cull it anyway - so I guess it doesn't affect me much. It used to be you could get a premium price on Barnes and Noble without fail, and sometimes you still can, but more and more it seems like people that are selling on multiple venues are just broadcasting their Amazon pricing everywhere, even though they may be under-priced on some venues.
