Advice to Booksellers on Unsold Inventory

Why Book Stores have So Much Unsold Junk?
 

No Bookseller intentionally stocks a "Junk Book" that wont sell...So, any Objective Book Culling by the Bookseller is almost impossible
 

But with Each Sale The Buyers secretly Cull your inventory, even if You Don't Realize it.
 

Slowly, Slowly only the less desirable books are left...
Think Reverse "Natural Selection?" 


Eventually only the "Sick Puppies" are Left...
 

OK You add a few more, Some Sell, But Now even more "Dead Wood" Piles up...
 

Eventually you're over stocked and cant list anything new for lack of room...
 

The Books All Look OK, But They have been "Secretly" Culled by Buyers Over Many Years.
 

So Dumping Old Unsold Stock~No Matter How "Good" it Looks~May be the Only Way to Go.
 

Hoping for that "Long Tail" Sale only gets more impossible every year...
 

Even as your floors buckle under the weight of Your unsold Inventory...

Amazon is Changing Not Ebay Anymore

AZ Clearly Wants to Downsize its Small Seller Base.
 

The Overhead of maintaining Millions of inactive and small accounts must be a huge drag on time & resources.
 

First To Go are Retail Arbitragers & Flea Market "Dumpster Divers"...
They're initially charged with selling "Inauthentic" or "Counterfeit" Goods....Even though these items likely are genuine.

 

Then, they are required to produce Documents from Manufacturers Proving a "right to sell" those goods. If that doesn't work other "hoops" are set up To jump through...
 

Additionally, "Gating" and Large Fees are needed to sell in some Areas.
 

As to AZs Original "Used Book" Business?
 

AZ Thinks The Megas and a Few Large Active Sellers Can Supply That Market.
 

And Smaller Sellers Can Move To ABE or Other Venues.
 

Finally, as Its US Seller Base Shrinks, the Profitable China Seller Base Increases.
 

In a Year AZ will be a totally different place...
 

And Most Small Sellers will Be Gone.
