As Amazon now seems to be almost a Google equivalent for search for books I’m happy to announce that we got listed there as well. However, there’s a teensy weensy little snag. The pricing. All US based Kindle/Amazon customers will see a base price of $2,99 , those who live outside the US can expect various prices, starting from $3,08 (UK) to $6,14 (some parts of European Union). I don’t know why these discrepancies exist, I have written to Amazon asking about these policies but I haven’t received a reply yet. o
One person told me that she also had chatted to an Amazon consultant to figure this out, because she had also been tired of paying more for books than everybody else. It seems that the consultant didn’t really solve her problem so she decided to ‘fix’ it herself – she changed her Kindle’s country to the US and her billing address for Kindle purchases to a US address as well.
I know this may not be the solution to everybody, but fortunately for all of us Smashwords sells Kindle as well. And from what I know, there you always pay the price that an author/publisher set.
