Hachette UK Could Adopt The Agency Model

Hachette UK is changing up its eBook pricing structure and is reportedly moving to the agency model.

The Bookseller points out that, “e-books have been removed from the websites of Waterstone’s, W H Smith, Tesco and The Book Depository after the publisher said it would move to agency terms from today (20th September). But Amazon.co.uk is still selling Hachette titles on the Kindle, and appears to still be setting the prices.”

This would be a first. Earlier this summer when Amazon officially launched the Kindle store in the UK, the book giant said that Amazon would determine the pricing. Nothing has changed just yet. As the Bookseller reports: “…as of Monday morning Amazon is continuing to set prices of Hachette e-books below that of Apple, which is already on agency terms. Breaking Dawn is £4.49 in the iBookstore, but £3.41 on Kindle.”
