The issue is that I was/am going to offer my ebook on my own site, but also wanted to offer it through Amazon Kindle and Maybe ibook, too. But Kindle allows a max price of $9.99. Of course a hundred thousand times $9.99 wouldn't be so bad either!
But I wanted to charge more on my site (because, for one thing, the content is worth it) and also maybe offer to Affiliates. So I'm wondering if having a different price on my site than on Kindle would be a mistake? Would I end up with pissed off customers? I was thinking to still keep the price fairly close to what Amazon would be selling for, such as 12.95-14.95 vs 9.99 for Kindle.
Of course, if I really marketed virally, then maybe I don't even need Amazon?
The question is what do you think about having the same product with the same author at two different prices from two different places? It's a weight loss book with a different edge, including the title, so I think it has the potential to go viral.
Or should I just go with $9.99 on my site too? I was thinking that if I charged only a little bit higher than Amazon, then would people who'd paid somewhere between 12.95 and 14.95 feel ripped off (assuming they see it on Kindle for 9.99) even if they like the content?
The last thing I want is for otherwise satisfied customers to come and demand their money back because they see the same product for a few bucks cheaper at Amazon.
What do you think about this dilemma?
