Private ordering companies like Amazon are stealing book sales by allowing customers to order books from other publishers without their permission.
But now they’re getting a new friend: Amazon.com.
As part of its push to build a loyal customer base, Amazon is expanding its relationship with private order companies.
Amazon is letting private order customers order books that it sells without the publisher’s approval, and it is providing the books to private order corporations.
Amazon has been using these companies to deliver its Kindle ebooks, and now it’s letting customers order them online as well.
These book buyers have access to Kindle books that they didn’t get before.
But the companies aren’t getting any credit for the book sales.
Instead, the books are automatically delivered to customers’ accounts and will show up on Amazon’s site, even though Amazon doesn’t pay the publishers.
The publishers that have chosen to take advantage of Amazon’s service include Barnes & Noble, Simon & Dunlop, Random House, and Simon & Schuster.
Amazon also lets private order publishers pay Amazon royalties for the books they sell to private orders.
Private order companies say that they make money by helping publishers distribute books that are more popular than the originals.
The book sellers say that Amazon’s business model makes them less competitive than publishers, because they are selling books that were never meant to be sold at retail.
Amazon, for its part, says that the arrangement it is offering to book publishers makes sense.
“It’s good for Amazon and publishers, it’s good to our business, and publishers are benefiting from this program,” said Amazon senior vice president of corporate communications Dan Omidyar.
OmidYar, who is also the chairman of Amazon stockholders, said that Amazon has used private order providers to distribute more than 300 million Kindle eBooks.
The company says that these books have sold more than 20 million copies.
But Amazon says that this arrangement is only available to publishers with books that Amazon is already publishing, and not all book publishers.
Amazon says it doesn’t know what percentage of publishers use the program, but estimates that about 2 percent of publishers are using the program.
The other 1 percent are still receiving books that weren’t published, according to Amazon.
The number of publishers using the private order program is unknown, because Amazon hasn’t shared that data with the publishers and publishers haven’t shared their data with Amazon.
Amazon has also allowed private order buyers to sell books that don’t appear in Amazon’s Kindle book catalog.
In this case, the publisher is selling books to a private ordering company and Amazon isn’t paying Amazon royalties.
This arrangement isn’t available to all booksellers.
The publishers are not able to sell the books directly to customers, either.
But many publishers do sell books from Amazon to their own customers.
“This is a really cool new option for them,” said Paul Eger, the chief economist at the Pew Charitable Trusts.
“If they don’t like the Kindle, they can go and get a book from Amazon, but Amazon won’t pay them for it.”
Publishers say that the Amazon arrangement is confusing for the consumers they serve.
“The Amazon books are being sold to the public, and the publisher will get royalties from the public,” said Eger.
“But it’s not a fair arrangement for the consumer.”
Amazon says that private order sellers will only receive royalties for books that have been published, which means that the book isn’t being sold directly to the consumer.
The publisher can then use the money it earns from sales to help pay for books it’s publishing.
“In a world of online shopping, there are no clear rules,” said David Hensley, an author and bookseller in New York.
“And Amazon’s policies and practices are a clear breach of the Fair Trade Agreement.
If Amazon continues to allow private order book sellers to abuse its services, it will create confusion among consumers.”
Amazon, which has more than 8 million retail stores in the United States, says it is trying to resolve the situation by changing its bookselling practices.
“We have begun to work with publishers to address this situation and will continue to do so as a company,” said a spokesperson.
