Mysterious price increase on Amazon UK

One of my ebook titles has increased in price from £1.99 to £2.41. I have it set at £1.93, the same as all my other titles. Those are all still £1.99, except for one which is £2.06 (which makes even less sense).

At first I thought they were charging UK VAT instead of tax-dodging Luxemborg VAT, but that would make the price £2.66.

In the old days, it would have been blamed on incompetent careless clerks. In this modern age, "The computer did it!"

Are you based in the UK?

I know Amazon show the price based on what it is in your country and convert it based on the exchange rate. This scared me at first because I set my book to £3.99 and $3.99 but it was showing as a higher price when I viewed the US website. But when I asked someone in the US to view it, it showed the price as $3.99.

I'm having the opposite problem. I had a sale on my book for a few weeks and put it down to 99c. Now I've changed the price to 2.99 but it's still showing as 99c.

Most of my stories are set in Shefferham

I still don't know what caused the odd price, but I've fixed it by going in and resubmitting it for review with the same £1.93 price.

Mine are set in a dystopic Northern England

Do you write football themed stuff? Only my inlaws are pretty interested in stories about Blades/Owls hooliganism etc.

Not reallly, it's more general hooliganism. I'm working on a zombie-type one at the moment with some Shefferham United hoolies, but it picks up after the football (in a place called Meadowside).

Why are you charging British readers 60% more than American readers?
