Disney, Amazon dispute involves more than pricing

  • The dispute that has erupted between Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Disney (NYSE:DIS) which halted some movie preorders is not only about price, the WSJ reports.
  • Differences regarding promotion and product placement on Amazon's website, as well as who makes up the price difference when Amazon loses money due to matching policies are also main factors in the disagreement.
  • However, sales of previously released Disney movies, as well as the company's toys, books and other products, have not been affected.

    When it comes to money, companies like these two tend to work it out quickly. I wouldn't expect this to be a long-run issue.

    These things are annoying to consumers...so that should expedite a solution.
