Amazon Regions FAQ

What are the regions?

Indie Book Discovery needs to get its data to be displayed from Amazon. Amazon has a number of country specific "stores", but only allows book data to be accessed from the following regions:

  • Canada
  • Germany
  • Spain
  • France
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • UK
  • US

Indie Book Discovery will try to source data from the most appropriate Amazon region for you based on where we think you are from. The current region source will be represented by a flag in the top menu.

Why change the region?

You are welcome to change the region so Indie Book Discovery will display data from that Amazon region.

So:

  • if you've selected (UK) as your region, the book description and reviews displayed will come from Amazon.co.uk
  • if you've selected (Canada) as your region, the book description and reviews displayed will come from Amazon.ca
  • (etc)

My region isn't listed.

Sorry, but Amazon data is only available from some regions. It doesn't affect your ability to buy books (from Amazon stores), just where we display data from.

My default Amazon region is wrong.

If Indie Book Discovery is using what seems to be the wrong Amazon region for you, please let us know and we'll see what has gone wrong.
