When reading the terms of service or whatever it’s called for Amazon, for you to get the 70% of sales profits, your Amazon book has to be priced at least 20% less than other distributors, like Smashwords, or they will cut you back to 35% instead of 70%.

That seems a bit unfair, but I guess I can’t really go up against Amazon on that. However I was thinking that if I marketed on fb a coupon for Smashwords that if used would get the price down to the same as Amazon, that might help level the playing field. Does Amazon troll for that kind of thing?… posting of coupons for other sites to get the prices the same as Amazon?

Do Smashwords coupons only work if purchased off Smashwords?* Or do they also distribute to iBook, Nook, etc? I’m thinking they’re probably only good for Smashwords purchases.

Have a great one! I’m off to Pittsburgh for work.
