Amazon "Buy New" Option Removed from Publisher's Titles

The “buy new” option has been removed from a variety of Hachette Group’s Amazon UK listings, reports The BookSeller:

Amazon conducts yearly negotiations with publishers over the discounts it receives. The Hachette tussle comes in the wake of a similar dispute in January, when a number of Bloomsbury titles were temporarily removed from sale through Amazon’s main channel.

The Hachette-Amazon negotiation comes in the wake of recent moves by UK publishers to attract customers to their own sites through price cuts.
