Gung-Ho processes the order.

Compare The Stores Yourself

Gung-Ho

Strengths

“Boutique” environment without any competition
Author’s store name, branding, description, and selling price
Simple screen with a user-friendly look and feel

Amazon

Weaknesses

“Mall” environment with competition and sponsored ads
Amazon reduced the author’s selling price and royalties by 16%
Cluttered and confusing screen for non-Amazon users

So why sell on Amazon?

People go to Amazon to buy just about everything and having a presence there allows them to find you.
If you want to sell eBooks or need traditional wide distribution, Amazon offers those services.
Prime members expect free 2-day shipping and it’s hard to compete with free.
 
For these reasons, it’s good to have a presence and sell on Amazon.

But don’t send your audience to Amazon

When people visit your website or social media page and want to buy your printed book, don’t send them to Amazon;
send them to your own Store so you can maximize your profit and get all your valuable customer information.
 
And, when people find you on Amazon, you can still make a less profitable, incremental sale.
