Amazon has struck a deal with HarperCollins that sets the terms for selling the publisher’s print and digital books on the influential e-commerce site, avoiding the type of dispute that Amazon had with Hachette last year.

The deal lets HarperCollins set the prices of its e-books but gives the publisher incentives to offer lower prices, according to reports in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times, citing people familiar with the agreement.

HarperCollins said in a statement that it has “reached an agreement with Amazon and our books will continue to be available on the Amazon print and digital platforms.”

Amazon, which resolved its standoff with Hachette in November, has reached similar deals with Simon & Schuster and Macmillan.
