still available on amazon
I retired the project for my first book about 3 months ago but it seems it can still be purchased as a new book on Amazon and dispatched by Amazon. I understand that as long as there is the odd book remaining with some of the other suppliers that my book will still be available through them, either as remaining new stock or 2nd hand copies and therefore the image will remain on Amazon. Fair enough. However, I just checked and I can get all the way to the checkout stage (buying from Amazon itself) and there is no notice at all that the book is no longer available.
Does this mean that Amazon will take customers payments BEFORE they notify a customer that the product is no longer available? Surely a notice must appear alongside the image sometime that Amazon itself can no longer supply the book? Or does it take even longer than the 6 - 8 weeks from retiring as quoted by Lulu?
