What are Amazon doing now? [Public] / Re: AMS Ad Glitch

Thank you for posting this.  I am seeing the same thing right now, major pain in the butt, but if you hadn't warned me I would have thought I was losing it.  :dog1:

What are Amazon doing now? [Public] / Re: AMS Ad Glitch

Sigh! Amazon tends to roll out changes without thoroughly testing. Hopefully, this glitch will be short-lived.

What are Amazon doing now? [Public] / AMS Ad Glitch
« Last post by 123mlh on March 20, 2019, 11:47:46 PM »
I was adjusting my AMS ads this morning, turning off a few and turning on a couple others I'd paused previously, and noticed a nasty little glitch in the dashboard. If I toggled multiple ads in a row the ones I'd toggled previously would reverse themselves. So, say I clicked to turn off Ad A and then to turn on Ad B and then to turn off Ad C. By the time I turned off Ad C, Ad A would be back to showing as on and Ad B would be back to showing as off. The only way to get the changes to stick was to toggle each one individually and then refresh the page. Hopefully this is a passing issue because it's really annoying and hard to track when it happens.

IngramSpark / Cost of printing price increase

Ingram is increasing the cost of printing by 2% on April 1st.

If you distribute through them, you might want to consider changing your list price.

Amazon will try to do better with it once enough customer complaints come in. That's not a good system, but it is the way Amazon operates.

The Glitch is strong with Amazon. I hear about so many things that are screwed up, it's crazy. I personally think KDP is too big to handle with bots, and they have no intention of putting real people on the issues, so glitches and outright f*ck ups aren't going away any time soon. I'm waiting for the entire system to collapse, frankly.
Me too. My central nervous system can only handle putting out one fire at a time.

Possibly something as innocuous as an internal restructure / re-organisation?

That's the current theory. A shifting of responsibility, perhaps?

I've had off-center spine problems with both Amazon/Createspace and Ingram. Both claimed they were allowed a certain amount of wiggle room, and denied my requests to be reimbursed.

I ended up fast-tracking a cover redesign and had the designer make a change that made off-center spines less obvious. I don't consider this to be an issue any longer - it happens, but it's just not noticeable.

I have learned that reporting people for content violations results in nothing happening.

I don't bother anymore. Amazon clearly doesn't care.
