I think the question is what does Amazon charge Borders?
Amazon pays Borders a percentage of the sales, right? So it doesn't really matter what that percentage is, it's free money for Borders.
Why go to the bookstore when you can pay half the price at Amazon, get next day shipping
Next day shipping costs as much as the book, and what if you want it today?
why should Borders shareholders pay for the this public service? Talk to your representatives and see if they are willing to subsidize
Shareholders aren't paying for anything. In fact, they're being paid a 2% dividend. And besides, anyone who doesn't like what Borders is doing overall, shouldn't be a shareholder.
