eBookPrice: now multi-currency

By selecting the country USA, UK or Canada, you can see the prices displayed in dollars, pounds or Canadian dollars.

I've also added in physical books, so we can see the difference (usually higher) asked for the ebook.

2 questions about the currencies:

a) could some kind Canadian tell me what the right abbreviation is for Canadian dollars? CDN$? C$? something else?

b) Any other currencies of interest?

Regards
Rachel

Australian dollars (AU$) and Euros would be nice.

Neither:

http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=...meta=&aq=f&oq=

Try something like:

$9.99 CAD

---

Actually, apparently C$ is also used. But personally I much prefer the clarity of the above suggested notation.

$8.99 USD
$9.99 CAD
$11.49 AUD
$11.49 NZD

et al

- Ahi

I like the idea of adding in physical book prices, but you'll need to make your book matching algorithms a lot smarter to work properly now. It was bad enough with just different ebook editions (or names). Adding in all the different paper editions of popular books makes things very confusing.

E.g. Try finding the best price on the single volume lord of the rings, and compare against paper versions.

I'd say you go with the international convention for currency and that is to use a three letter acronym like.

USD = US currency
CAD = Canadian
GBP = British Pound
MXN= Mexican Peso
AUD = Australian Dollar

etc...
Here is a currency converting web site
