Question about using/purchasing ebooks for kindle overseas
I have a kindle 3 that I purchased while i was in the U.S. However, i've recently moved back to Taiwan and closed my bank account in the U.S. how will I be able to still buy ebooks through my kindle or through the amazon website? since i no longer have a bank account in the U.S. and can no longer charge the purchase to that account.
In addition, i do not see amazon taiwan anywhere online.. there's amazon canada, amazon china, amazon france... but i do not see taiwan =\
Do i just continue to use the amazon u.s. web site and purchaes the ebook i want and somehow pay it with the credit card i have here in taiwan? And if i want to buy the book via my kindle through its wireless feature, how will that be processed?

Yes, you buy books through amazon.com, using your local credit card. If you buy books on your Kindle, that will use whatever the "one click" payment method is for your Amazon account.

Probably what Harry says. I also know that some folks bought Amazon gift cards with their non-U.S. cards and then used them to purchase ebooks. There is also such a thing as an Amazon Payments account (something like Paypal). If you carry balance there, I think it can be used to pay for ebooks (but not sure). Just some ideas.
