Submission + - Amazon loses the International wireless charge (simon-royle.com)

sgroyle writes: "For anyone living outside the USA or Canada, it used to cost about $2-00 to get the book delivered by wireless to your kindle or reading device. That meant a .99 cents book was 2.99. Even when you “gifted” your own book to someone living in the USA, using Amazon’s services, it still cost you that $2-00.

I always thought that was a bit harsh, reminded me of phone charges in hotels in the eighties and nineties.

The good news is that Amazon appear to have stopped charging and now, “Free International delivery”, now really does mean free.

Thanks, Jeff.
