Macmillan Reaches Agreement with Amazon, Returns to Agency Pricing
Late last week Macmillan reached an agreement with Amazon on a multiyear deal for print books as well as a multiyear deal on the agency model for e-books, starting on January 5, 2015. All our other retailers will also be on the agency model, leaving Apple as the only retailer who is allowed unlimited discounting. Irony prospers in the digital age.
This odd aberration in the market will cause us to occasionally change the digital list price of your books in what may seem to be random fashion.
