Pricenoia - compare prices across all Amazon sites - home is not always cheaper
There are six international Amazon stores, and we've found ourselves checking the books and products we want to order at all of them, to find the best price. You may think that ordering from the nearest store would be cheaper, but it isn't in many cases.
That's why we created Pricenoia, we want to help people around the world check for a book's price at all the Amazon stores, in a convenient way.
This is what you get:
* We search for the price of a single product at every store in its local currency
* We show you all the prices in the same currency, daily updated (Euro for europeans, US Dollar for the rest of the world), to catch the differences in a easy way
* We add the shipping fares (the cheapest shipping available to your country from each store, usually Standard International Shipping )
* We show the total amount (product + shipping)
* We redirect you to the specific product page in the site you select
If you have never checked the prices of the books or other products you buy, you'll be amazed (or shall we say amazoned?) of the differences in some cases. Even if there is a local Amazon store in your country, it can be cheaper to order abroad! If you don't have a local site, choose the best one to order from!
Pricenoia is an Amazon associate and get its prices in real time when you are checking a product.
