Subscribe with Amazon - a New Tool For Authors? | The Digital Reader

Subscribe with Amazon - a New Tool For Authors? | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Talking New Media has brought one of Amazon's many services to my attention. It seems Amazon is pitching its "subscribe with Amazon" service to publishers today. “It’s not an app store, or an in-app purchase API,” Amazon said in its notice to account holders. “Subscribe with Amazon is the only app monetization solution that is OS, device, and platform agnostic, providing your subscribers the freedom to buy once and access on any iOS or Android supported device. It also enables you to expand your reach far beyond the app store by making your offering purchasable across Amazon’s many shopping channels.” This service has existed under its current name since at least last August. This is the subscription service that Amazon has been using to sell Loot boxes like STEM club, and that companies other than Amazon have used to sell access to paid cloud services like Dropbox Plus, online classes, and 3rd-party tech support services. Princeton review offers its homework service through Amazon, and you can also find other Amazon subscription services like Kindle Unlimited, Audible, and Amazon rapids available in this section. Amazon takes a 30% commission on subscriptions in the first year, and 15% after that. You can find out more from both [...]

Fact Check: Amazon to "Collect" Sales Tax in All US States | The Digital Reader

Fact Check: Amazon to "Collect" Sales Tax in All US States | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Earlier this week the American Bookseller Association celebrated a victory which wasn't nearly as impressive as they made it sound. The ABA would have you believe that Amazon is soon going to be collecting sales tax in all states which have a sales tax, but that's not actually what is going to happen: After almost two decades of a hard-fought political battle to require Amazon to collect and remit sales tax in every state that collects sales tax, Main Street retailers can finally declare victory. Come April 1, Amazon will be collecting and remitting sales tax in all 45 states that collect and remit sales tax. That number was reached when Hawaii, Maine, and Idaho recently announced deals with Amazon. “It is safe to say that the arguments that we have been making — about fairness and equity — have finally won out,” said American Booksellers Association CEO Oren Teicher, who pointed to the early and continued leadership of independent booksellers in support of e-fairness as one of the key reasons why Amazon is now collecting in all 45 states. “The campaign for e-fairness was a long one — longer than we expected — but now that Amazon collects in every state that [...]

Amazon Author Insights Has Tips for Indie Authors 

Amazon Author Insights Has Tips for Indie Authors  | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
There are many experts who can help authors get published, and now Amazon has gathered all that advice on a single site. Currently in beta, Amazon Author Insights features the advice of many published authors including Hugh Howey, Joanna Penn, Bryan Cohen, and Elizabeth S Craig as well as a number of articles by Amazon's staff (under the byline Kindle Press). The site is hosted on Tumblr, and is divided into three sections: Write, Publish, and Market. There's also a fourth section which claims to focus on tools and services, but really just lists various Amazon services (KDP, Createspace, Kindle scout, Goodreads, etc). Amazon has not announced the site yet, and it's not clear what they're trying to accomplish here.  But the articles I read all contained sound advice, so the site is definitely worth checking out.
