Not only that, but you are then only shown a selection of books available for your country. There are many, many english or american ebooks that are for instance available for me at amazon.es but that are not at kobo.
Change your location in your account, using a valid address for the country in question. Changing to the US gives me prices in USD and not my local currency. Also offers titles that aren't available, but I haven't bought any in this way.
