Amazon marketplace: sorry, your purchase has been sold

Yesterday I bought 27 books from Amazon – mostly from the marketplace. Why not? The book are almost new, and they’re easily half off or less.Today I got a notice that a book I bought via the marketplace was previously sold.amazonNo biggie – I just went back to Amazon, chose the next available seller for the book, and bought it again.Here’s the deal: when Amazon sends out that kind of email, they should include a link to re-purchase. That would probably increase their sales from people whose purchases are no longer available.And would make an already very usable store even more so.


Want weekly updates? Of course you do …

  • I buy from the Market place too. Actually many of them are in fact new! I think once I heard that because many of these sellers aren’t the original distributors of the books, the books are sold under the ‘used’ title for lower price. I remember I use to buy ‘used’ textbooks for much cheaper price, and they still had the original wrapping around them.

    Maybe someone in the book selling industry has better insight on that.
