Amazon have moved the Kindle market into Spain and Italy. No complaints from me, the wider those Kindle books are available, the more likely it is that someone will buy one.
I had to go in and add pricing for all the books, which means they are likely to be offline for a day while they update. Can't be helped I suppose.
The easy option is to set the price in US dollars and then check the boxes that make the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain prices equivalent to the dollar price. It means the European prices fluctuate by a few pennies as the currencies move in relation to the dollar but it means the books are the same price everywhere.
What seemed odd to me was that currently, the French and German equivalent of a $1.99 price is euro 1.45. However, the Spanish and Italian equivalent is euro 1.50 (I don't have a keyboard with the euro sign. I should get one before they become collector's items).
It looks as if there is a different exchange rate between the dollar and the French and German euros than between the dollar and the Italian and Spanish euros.
Is that possible? Is the Eurozone breaking up? Or am I missing something?
Anyone out there understand international money markets?
