Buy Stuff through our Amazon link - please!

Post by cameron » Sat May 21, 2005 12:53 pm

If you've received useful feedback from this forum or generally enjoyed the cut and thrust of literary debate, then why not help us by using our Amazon link?

http://www.poetsgraves.co.uk/bookshop.htm
Or click on the link at the bottom of the forum pages.

We receive a small commission for any items purchased and this helps us to defray the cost of web hosting, domain name rental and software. This does not affect the price you pay!

I have also listed a number of books which I highly recommend.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers
Cameron

Cam,

Just ordered a couple of items through your shop. A Ramones DVD and York notes on selected Larkin poems.

Not sure if it went according to plan, as I had to login once I was redirected from your search box.

Basically if cookies aren't always enabled, or are deleted, (I keep a clean ship), I have to with all the files and shit I've got flying about, then I'm not sure it will always work?

Anyway tell me if it was processed ok.

cheers

We have just notched up our first £10 in commission (tax haven beckons).

Thanks to everyone who has bought stuff via our Amazon link. Just a reminder that Amazon also sells household items such as computers, washing machines and toasters. The commission from a nice little fridge-freezer would keep this site running for months. You know it makes sense.

Cheers
Cam

Caleb,

Thanks old chap. Your purchase has just shown up and has bagged us $8.

Hopefully Amazon will convert this into real money (lol).

Great stuff.

Cheers

How is the recent dictum issued by Amazon.com, that publishers who use POD must shift production to Amazon's in-house Book Surge POD division or lose their Buy button, affecting business there at Poets' Graves? Some North American publishers are quite steamed about it, mostly over perceived poor quality standards in Book Surge Production, but also over what appears to be a larger bite out of cover price percentage to offer larger discounts to customers that are detrimental to small presses.

To be honest I have no idea what that all means. We never get revenue from Amazon.com anyway, all ours come from amazon uk and sales seem pretty stable. We normally get £10 or thereabouts every 2 months so we have not reached the higher tax bracket just yet..
