Subject: Your Amazon KDP Inquiry
I can confirm your Kindle book is listed at a price of $2.99.
All items available in the Amazon.com Kindle store are listed in U.S. dollars (USD). The availability and pricing of titles in global Kindle Stores may vary by home country or region.
If you’re browsing in the Kindle store from a location outside of the United States, you may see a price higher than what you listed on the KDP website.
There are a number of reasons why prices for Kindle titles may vary from region to region, including taxes and other operating costs. We understand your concern about prices, and we share that concern — we will continue our efforts to reduce costs and offer the best possible prices to customers in every region.
