(Or more often among the last pages with many recent books).
Assuming it’s a used book with a UK publisher and you put the COO as, say, China, might not this be opening a can of worms?
Incidentally, typing ‘gr’ brings up nothing and while ‘gb’ does bring up GB from the list, it won’t let me select it that way - it forces me to scroll the entire drop-down list.
I often have this problem with typing in on Amazon drop-downs.
Maybe it’s a Firefox thing…?.
Probably, but to my mind, the COO is where the book was published. Quote from Amazon citing UK Govt guidance:
“This means that the origin is the economic nationality of goods being imported and exported (where they have been produced or manufactured)”
The publisher is the organization producing the book, therefore their base is the COO
You also have to remember that the text can be printed in one country, the binding in another and the dustjacket in a third, so the printer is not the only one, or the last one, involved in the manufacturing process . And, of course, some copies of the same book may get printed by different printers, either at the time of original publication or later
Yes, I figured that out after a while, but what a pain - I’m currently editing dozens of individual listings and having to input the COO for every bleeping one, switching off and on ALL CAPS as I go.
Another great ‘improvement’ from Amazon…
