|Elvis Express Radio brings news of Elvis releases and provides free online entertainment & news to fans around the world. We DO NOT sell any Elvis products
A couple of days ago, we shared news about how Amazon(UK) were employing some strange games to what seemed to prevent sales of Elvis hit album, 'The Wonder of You'.
Well, once again, our colleague Brian Quinn points out to us, the online retail giant are still playing games as they have returned to the policy of only being able to purchase a copy
of 'The Wonder Of You' album if one joins their ‘Prime’ club.
WHY IS THIS? upon investigation, Brian informs us that other artists do not suffer from this sales prevention. However, several others suffer also along with Elvis from not being
able to purchase more than 3 copies of an album at anytime. Needless to say 'Little Mix' and 'Bowie' appear to be exempt from this rule.
Pathetic. I thought we lived in a Capitalist society!!
In the past, Amazon have stated that to avoid monopolisation of UK sales they let other Record outlets have a chance and limit the amount they sell. The trouble with this is that
the smaller record outlets charge more for postage. Hence people avoid buying from them.
