What are Amazon doing now? [Public] / Re: Catch-up sales?
« Last post by cecilia_writer on January 13, 2021, 08:43:44 PM »
Thanks both - I haven't a new release for a couple of months but one thing I've noticed recently is a lot of emails from Amazon recommending my own books to me, so there's maybe something in that!

I got a batch of extra sales today, but then I had a new release, so I attribute the sales to that.

My sales were higher than usual (about 100 extra units sold/borrowed higher) on the 10th, and they jumped again on the 11th. But they're back to normal today. I'm guessing I had an Amazon email the other day. Maybe that's what you had? A new release notification maybe? Or Amazon reporting is playing catch-up. It could be either. Or neither.

What are Amazon doing now? [Public] / Catch-up sales?

I wonder if anyone else has noticed a sudden splurge of sales today - I haven't had very good sales this month on Amazon, though for various reasons I haven't bothered to do anything about it - but today my sales graph has gone nuts, relatively speaking. When this happens I usually imagine they've suddenly 'found a backlog of sales that somehow missed being recorded before, so I wondered if it was some general tidy-up.

Yep that's what I meant. I got into the habit of changing both custom and default. Thanks.

Simon, I'm curious, when you are setting up the ad do you change the default and custom bid on the original ad set up page and still have to do this?

I always change custom bid (if you mean the drop-down above the spot where you select the targets) and when I add all the targets they're all set to my price. Therefore I never have to go through this procedure when first setting up an ad.

I rarely change the default bid.

Made some changes, set it down to $5 a day just in case, and set it going again.

Thanks for the help.

The select all seems to have done all of them the first time, regardless of what was being viewed.

So you'll need to view the 300 for sure, and then re-sort 4 times until you're absolutely certain there are no bids above 20c in that list. Obviously, you'll need to select all, then set the bid, before resorting each time.

By targets do you mean keywords? I have 993 of those.

Yes - I used 'targets' because you might have been using asins, categories, etc.
