A friend of mine who also sells on amazon got the following email
from them about their new Rare & Collectible Books store:
Dear Amazon.com Bookseller,
We're pleased to inform you that the Amazon.com Rare & Collectible
Books store was launched today. This beta launch is an important
milestone in our efforts to improve the customer experience for
book collectors on Amazon.com.
During this beta phase, we will be testing new features and
gathering feedback from buyers and sellers. Please visit
the store and let us know what you think.
The new store can be accessed through the Amazon.com Books
store, or you can see it now by clicking on the following
The store features launched today include advanced search and
dedicated browse functionality, product merchandising, and
customer-facing content about rare and collectible books.
We would also like you to know that only collectible
listings that have the collectible attributes (Collectible
Edition, Signed By, and Dust Jacket Condition) filled out
will be indexed and discoverable from our store. It is
therefore very important for you to populate as many of the
attributes you can on each of your collectible listings.
For more details about the new store, please see our Seller
We also want to invite you to participate in the new Rare and
Collectible Books Community forum. The forum is accessible from the
main store page, or you can go there directly using the following URL:
