We were recently forced to go to Amazon.ca for our kindle ebooks. i was using Amazon.com before. i live in Canada. why were we forced to do this? we should be allowed to get ebooks from which ever country we want. it states under the international country that you are allowed to buy from any country. the canadian Amazon does not have the choice of ebooks that the US amazon has. this has me very angry.

Why don't you ask Amazon?

kindle-feedback@amazon.com

It probably has something to do with copyright/distribution rights. At Amazon.com, I know the prices for books sold to Canada was different than the prices for books sold to US residents.

International users can only buy from Amazon.com if their country does not have its own store. As Vickie said, this is due to copyright/distribution rights. The same thing also works in reverse -- if there is an ebook available at Amazon.ca that is not available at Amazon.com, I cannot buy it.

ETA: CBRetriever pointed out that the first statement is only sometimes true.

You weren't forced to go to Amazon.ca
As a Canadian customer, I still have not clicked on the link to convert myself, hence I have not been converted.
So I am unsure on where the forcing you referred to is.

not quite true - I've been ignoring the "You can shop on amazon.fr ine euros" quite successfully for more than a year and I deliberately bought my Kindle Touch from amazon.fr as a gift so i could register it to amazon.com

the only people that don't have a choice of the local store or amazon.com are the UK esidents

That's not fair. I should be able to shop from the Canook store if I want to!!!! We share a border after all.

no problem - I'm in small subset of users who are US expats in countries with a Kindle Store, so I've had to learn the ins and outs of the situation
