In 2013 we shipped our entire stock from our warehouse to various Amazon warehouses around the UK and since then they have undertaken our fulfilment.
This has worked very well for us, and we have no complaints.
Amazon have decided to charge storage fees for slow moving stock. Some
of our stock is very slow moving - that is the very nature of "the long
tail" and I cannot really complain.
However, this does
give us a slight problem: we want to avoid these charges which come into
effect in August, so we are going to have to accept the books back to
our premises. However, we no longer have a warehouse, just a house, and
my wife is not overjoyed at the prospect of having several hundred books
arrive next month.
So to mitigate the problem, and
keep the wife happy, we have put all the stock currently held at Amazon
on sale at half price and free carriage in the UK.
All the books that are not sold in the sale will revert to full price on 14th August.
