Will Barnes and Noble.com sell a book without a wholesale discount?

Hi,

 

I set-up my book Daddy Versus the Squirrels with createspace for the soft cover and with ingramspark.com so that the hard cover will be available at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.

 

I chose to use the wholesale discount with the impression that barnesandnoble.com and amazon.com would not sell it unless I had a discount for them.

 

The end result, is that I make almost no money from the sale since all the savings goes to wholesale discount.

 

Since, 1) barnesandnoble.com and amazon.com are NOT buying it wholesale, and 2) since I am the one selling/marketing the book, and not them, I would like to get rid of the wholesale discount.

 

Does anyone know if barnesandnoble.com and amazon.com will continue to sell the book without the wholesale discount?

 

Thanks!

Hi J,

 

Are they selling it now?  The wholesale discount isn't the only blocker for them.  For example, they don't normally agree to stock books that aren't returnable.

Hi Paul,

 

Yes, they will still sell it on their website regardless.  It's the physical stock thing that requires the discount.
