    So the thread is closed? Really? I thought it was quite helpful and was actually interested in doing it. And then it gets closed?

    But, it seemed like the whole thread might have been a warmup or presale for some kine of service? I really hope shezboy wasn't just conning us the entire time, that's really messed up if it's true.

    It'd be nice if he could clear this up.

    It was a really good thread in my opinion. Too bad really...

    You genuinely think I was conning people? Seriously!?

    I have been doing the whole book flipping thing the way that I explained it in my other thread for some time now. It's not based on some theory or idea. It's not blackhat or anything that's just gonna go pop over night. It was a method laid out for anyone who was interested in taking some action and actually creating a decent income for themselves.

    And just like the ShezBlogging method that I freely gave away here at BHW I also gave this method away.

    Now, to me, this method isn't rocket science. It isn't some breakthrough method that no one else has ever discovered either but as it turns out a lot of people became very interested in it and wanted to know more about it. I was happy to answer any questions about the method to help out those who wanted to take action with it.

    Then I soon realised that as more and more people asked different questions about it, answering them on a thread would cause all of the information to become fragmented. This is exactly what happened when I gave away the Shezblogging method here at BHW.

    In that instance and this one I realised that there was a demand for this information and little supply.

    To remedy that situation, 5 days after starting the Book Flipping thread, I bought a domain so I could set up a blog about the FBA Book Flipping method. A day or so later I started to write out a very detailed ebook on the subject that spoonfed the entire method from start to finish. The method in the book goes beyond what had been mentioned in the thread and not just in finer detail either.

    That book took a few days to write out. It wasn't something thrown together in a rush either.

    Once everything was completed I created a sales page for the book and then created a BST thread which was submitted to BHW.

    It was then brought to my attention by a Mod here that the original thread could be seen as a warm up/pre-sales thread and they closed it due to me submitting a BST. Now that is fair enough. The Mod was doing things totally by the book and I just hadn't thought that it would appear as it did. I didn't create the original thread as any kind of warm up thread. I didn't even think about creating the ebook until 5 days after starting the thread.

    It's rare that I plan what I am doing the next day let alone 5 days in advance.

    I hope that helps explain more clearly the reason for the original thread being closed. But please don't accuse me of conning anyone. That's not me and not what I am about. I've not been around here since 2008 to con people and please feel free to search my posts for proof of that.

    I am glad that you found the original thread of use. It is a really solid method that anyone can do and I am sorry that I am unable to answer any questions about it on that thread now it's closed.

    Thanks,

    Shez

    It's really sad to see OP piss on Shez's thread.
    It's a pretty solid guide. And I completely understand why Michael would have to write a whole book about the method even though it's been nearly explained on his OP.
    It gets tough to keep up with the ridiculous questions that some newbs throw at him while the thread couldn't be any clearer.

    Nobody is pissing on anybody's thread.

    The mod was the one that responded by saying it was closed for pre selling and warming up. Take it up with him. I was just trying to find out why he closed it for those reasons.

    Shez, I do sincerely apologize. It wasn't my intention to accuse you of shaming anybody. I wrote it without really thinking it through. I guess I was just upset that the thread was closed.

    With most of the other nonsene that gets posted in this section that passes for money making "methods" to get alot of attention and stick around for years, and to see your's that's a very solid money maker get closed for some stupid technicality just made me kind of p!ssed.

    By the way, when is your ebook going to be available?

    Thank you for clearing up that you wasn't accusing me of conning anyone and I can understand your frustration at the other thread being closed. There is enough information in that thread for anyone to get started with the method.

    The mod was going by the book and I am no different to anyone else when it comes to the rules of the forum. My actions were deemed to be stepping over the line which is why the mod closed the thread. It's just one of those things and I explained my intentions to the mod as well as apologizing.

    The thread will go live in the marketplace once the mod has approved it. It wouldn't be right of me to use this post to point to it in any way so I won't.

    Thanks for your reply, it is appreciated though and clears things up.

    Hi, sorry I didn't read your question right the first time. No, you don't need an Amazon Prime account for this method :)

    Cheers,

    Shez

    Hey guys,

    first of all thanks a lot for the method Shez. First time Im trying to make some paper online and it Works quiet well, sold 4 books in 3 days since my books reached amazon. Only thing what I really dont understand is how it Works with the fees. In the other thread u mentioned about 30% FBA fees, but I dont really see that.

    I sold a book for 17,83 and they took off around 5,93 Euros, which is indeed around 30%. But then I sold a book for 5,99 and the fees were 4,14. Sold another one for 12,00 and the fees were 5, 52 Euros. This really confuses me. I am based in Germany if that plays a role

    Thanks for any help !

    Hi, there are a minimum amount for the fee that Amazon will take from each sale which is why I always look for books that I can sell for a minimum price. If you sold a book as FBA for one Euro then Amz will take a min amount of fees that will be more than what you sold the book for and you'll end up making a loss on that.

    Please check on the FBA fees to ensure that you don't price a book so low that you end up losing money.

    Thanks,

    Shez
