When you set your pricing at 2.99 in the US, the other countries prices are automatically set. I sold a book that I recently changed to 3.99 in the US. The book I sold was in UK. That amount was 2.60 after conversion. Can I manually change all of the countries to reflect the US price so when I sell in the UK, etc. it will also be sold at the 3.99 price? Confusing, I know Thanks for any help.

The US price is listed in US Dollars

I think the other Prices are listed in Euros and the exchange rate makes for the Difference in the figures.

I do not have a clue what the excange rate Euros to USDollars is !

The rate changes day to day. For a current price reference check here; http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert/?Amount=1&From=EUR&To=USD . I'm not sure how often Amazon makes changes on their calculations but I'm sure they do not take a loss with the rate they use.
The dollar ain't what it used to be :-(.

You do have the option to manually set the price in each of the foreign currencies (i.e. Euros, Pounds), but if you do that, there is no automatic adjustment for currency rate changes.
