Can a remaindered book be listed as "New"?

0

While listing books I keep coming across listings where sellers have books listed as “New, but with remainder mark”. Is this against Amazon policy? I feel like it forces me to drive my “New” book prices lower than they should be so that my listing can be competitive (since some customers may not know what a remainder mark is).

No, I don’t look at them.

I list my books while in a dark room while wearing a blindfold.

I was just quoting Amazon’s Condition Guidelines for the OP.

Except where Amazon itself is concerned. They have thousands and thousands of titles they sell as new that are remaindered. They make listing pages FOR them, and that is where they MAY be listed as new.

Amazon gets them from the publishers by the pallets. They are new, but left over (or at least that is what the publisher or their agent tells Amazon).

The ones the OP is most likely seeing are copies 3p sellers aren’t.

The OP should locate the correct page, if there is one, and report the violation asking to move the item or have the seller down grade accordingly.

You can report them but don’t hold your breath as book sellers that are shady are in the thousands.

They make other book sellers look bad and drive the price down for actual new books.

May contain remainder marks? It either does or it doesn’t. Do you actually look at the books you post?

I would consider a remainder mark a flaw that should be addressed in the description and graded accordingly.
