Would anyone care to describe their experience selling o.p. books to
Amazon.com?

Among other things, do they "haggle" over price and/or shipping charges?

Do they expect shipment prior to receipt of payment?

Should they, or should they not, be accorded the courtesy of a fellow-dealer
discount?

The 7/28/98 Washington Post article on Amazon was an eye-opener, but it did not
address the supplier side of the transactions.

Thanks for any information or opinions.

I sell to them quite often--they pay promptly, and I ship as soon as I
get the check. I don't give them a discount, and they never asked for
one.

Happy camper.

My experience with Amazon.com has been very good.
