EIBF and its Members have always advocated for a level playing field for all book retailers.
Booksellers in membership with EIBF pay their taxes and contribute to their local economies by creating jobs within their community.
Amazon’s fiscal practices have long been questioned by the bookselling community. The EIBF stands for a free and open market space with fair competition securing a variety of booksellers to offer a broad range of titles – both online and offline. Indeed , consumers suffer when single companies monopolise the market whether in the USA or in Europe. And consumers are the ultimate beneficiaries of a level playing field governing commercial conditions and favouring healthy competition between retailers.
