BNBQ Affiliate Program
Booksellers were hit with emails from top brass at both ABEBooks and Alibris today. It seems as if ABE will no longer be participating in the BNBQ affiliate program, a move that seems to leave Alibris as the lone big listings service left in the Barnes used book department. I find it hard to believe that BNBQ sales alone will cause much of a transfer of sellers, primarily because ABE is the only major bookselling site that allows booksellers to set and collect 100% of shipping fees. Any of the large sellers out there, know that this difference alone can easily cover the difference in fees between Abe and Al - BNBQ sales aside.
