BookDepository Bought by Amazon

This makes me sad because:

1. I love the Book Depository because it has free shipping, usually cheaper to New Zealand than Amazon's bigger discounts
2. It let me use Paypal
3. I am emotionally connected to the site

I don't care much because:
1. Amazon is probably more interested in owning the business (which offers alternatives in places Amazon isn't very successful) than changing it.
2, I found the affiliate set up to be quite amateur and much as I wanted to promote the site, I was never quite sure it worked.

  1. Wow, that's news to me! I was paid by their affiliate program several times, and I also ordered many books from them. I hope they keep free shipping because Amazon postage charges are ridiculous over here.
