Default Amazon is always in $$$ ?

Hey,
We're setting up some UK sites with Amazon, but we're only getting american prices?
What do we need to change?
Thanks.

Hi

You need to add a "Locale" filter.

Oh,
Also I've noticed some of the products' prices are different (usually higher) to those actually on Amazon, is there a cache of Amazon or does it read from the Amazon API directly?
For example http://www.amazon.co.uk/Buddha-Bar-V...2580640&sr=8-3
This comes up as 29.99, however shows as 23.54 on Amazon!

We are reading directly from the Amazon API when you do a search in the Factory. We're not allowed to store and then pass on stored Amazon data as per their licensing agreement.

Ok cheers, I wonder what's causing the difference in price!
Do you have any ideas?

I'm not really sure but we have noticed some discrepancies between printed price on their site and the price which comes from their API.

As you can see in attached screenshot 29.99 is the price listed for ASIN B00009XBYK in Amazon's API.

Yep i see it, i guess Amazon's API is outdated to their existing prices
