I assume you can add audio too, but I'm not AMSing anymore so I don't know.  I'm just posting this for you guys to see in case you missed the email.

I got this email today:

In our continued effort to improve your view of advertising performance, we are making an update in our reporting process. This update provides books advertisers with a more actionable view of ad performance and control over spend by title.

As of 1 July 2020, sales for current and new Sponsored Products campaigns featuring Book ASINs are reported for the advertised ASIN only. Previously, reporting may have included sales for various formats of the title advertised. As a result of this update, you may see variation in advertising-attributed sales trends, but this does not affect your billing [or royalties].

To continue viewing sales across multiple book formats, add all applicable formats to a single Sponsored Products campaign. For example, in order to see the sales for both the eBook and paperback version of your title, add both ASINs to the same campaign.

Thank you for using Amazon Advertising.

I've pretty much given up their ad program too. I can't ever find my book on sponsored, and suspect you have to pay a dollar or more to get it up high enough. Wish I could afford to test that theory. Maybe they are trying to make it more likable because a lot of people are leaving it behind.

They told me I was seeing 99c on the US store because I was viewing it from Australia. I told them Australia was free (as well) last week, and had also reverted.

I think they've fixed it now.

The annoying thing is when you're running Bookbub ads stating the thing is free, and suddenly it isn't. At least with AMS ads (with no text), the ad still works.

Adding to the list of weird....

I just discovered my 3rd book in a series, which I changed all of them from 3.99 to 4.99 and updated the blurbs for each, was back at 3.99, and without the changes I made to the blurb.

Seems to be the same problem, in the change system.

Mine just reverted from 0.00 back to 99c (again).  Emailed KDP support.

it's a prequel novella, originally intended as a newsletter magnet but now offered as a permafree. Or at least, it's meant to be a permafree.

Don't know what's going on at KDP atm! They must have updated their software and have some kind of bug in the system, because they had to look into my issue for some days to find the problem and finally sort it out.

Hopefully they'll get yours back free again quickly!

Glad to hear it, and good luck with the promotion.   :cheers

Well done for persevering and good luck with your promotion.

Good luck!

Thanks all! I'll be sure to post a Bookbub results thread once the big day is done. Always find those kind of threads really informative!

Yes! Finally!

After many emails and many phone calls, the book is now set to free across all Amazon marketplaces! And with only just over a week to go before the Bookbub!

Perseverance (and constantly complaining) does pay off.

Hopefully this thread will serve as a warning to anyone else who manages to blag themselves a Bookbub - if you're relying on Amazon to price-match your book for you before the promo, start pestering them early, just in case you find yourself in the same situation as me!
