I think it does more so when randomly browsing unknowns. For example if Stephen King, or Tom Clancy put out a book with a horrible cover, most people probably would not even notice. Their NAME sells the book.

However if you are just scrolling through your favorite genre on Amazon all you have is title, and a thumbnail of the cover. If the cover sticks out you are more likely to click on it then if it blends in. If you never click on it, you will not buy it.

So, IMO, at least for most people I think the cover does have buying impact of some degree.
