On a number of occasions have tried to purchase a kindle edition. It won't let me purchase it from amazon.com but redirects me to amazon.com.au, but the problem is that particular book is not available from that domain. What do I have to do?

As you're in Australia you need to ensure that your account is either with Amazon.com.au (very limited range) or with Amazon.com I have set this up for a few friends but it was a while ago so I'm a little vague on details. I suggest you start exploring your country and account settings. One point to note. If you have any gift certificates with .com.au the funds will not transfer with the account.

Also, even if you have an Amazon.com account there will still be some e-books that aren't accessible as your outside the US or at a different price. (You can compare if you use the Amazon app on an iphone by setting the app's country settings to US - quite amazing some of the price differences and not in the AUD favour.) It is possible to access US Amazon range but this requires some creative IP use and I don't think that is something I can or should discuss here.

Even if you are on the .com the book you want may not be available to you. Amazon has to abide by copyright laws, if the publisher does not have rights to sell the book in your country you cannot buy it.

you can migrate your account to amazon.com (you're obviously registered to amazon.com.au), but your Country Setting may still prevent you from purchasing the book. It acts as a filter and you can only see/purchase ebooks available to Australian (in your case) or for me French residents
