Gifting Kindle Books Across Countries
I'm just wondering how pricing differences are handled between countries.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips upcoming book Call Me Irresistible is $12.99 in the US and $9.99 in Canada.
If my Son with a Canadian Kindle address were to gift me (US Address) the ebook, would he pay the $9.99 or $12.99 and then when I went to download it would I have to make up the difference?
Anybody try it yet?

I haven't tried it yet, but according to Amazon's site, the only reason the recipient would not receive the gifted book is because of copyright restrictions for their country, in which case they are given the option to exchange it or receive credit in the amount the giver paid for the gift. They also specify that "there is no charge to receive a gift", which implies that they do not charge the recipient in the event of a pricing difference.
