Prices of top 100 selling ibooks.
It is obvious that the majority of ibooks in the top 100 bestseller list sold for $5.99 or less. With 99c and $2.99 being the most popular prices on the list. It is interesting that only four were priced from $6.99 to $8.99. But then there were seven at $9.99, five at $11.99 and eight at $12.99. So some readers obviously want cheap ibooks while others are willing to pay more.
In three previous surveys only a few books on the list were 99 cents, but this time there were 17 at that price.
The number selling at $2.99 has been stable, averaging 16.
The number on the list selling for $3.99 has slightly decreased.
The number at $4.99 appears to have peaked in November and be decreasing again.
The number of ibooks on the list at $7 or more is decreasing. This mirrors what I found is happening with ebooks, that the price of electronic books making the top 100 bestselling list is decreasing.
My next post will examine Bookbub, one of the reasons why this decrease in price may be occurring.
