Amazon International Price Comparison

Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, has warehouses across North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, and Asia, and separate retail websites for United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, and China. These different versions of Amazon often have the same products on sale but at varying prices.

For those buyers who live in the above mentioned 10 countries it is always cheaper to buy from that region’s Amazon website because the products can be shipped from locally available warehouses. But for international buyers, it might not always be cheaper to buy from the closest Amazon center. For instance, if you live in Sweden, should you buy from Amazon UK or Amazon Germany? If you compare the prices and take into account the shipping costs, you may find that the answer is neither, and you may even discover that you can spend less if you order the product from Amazon US across the Atlantic.

There is a new extension for Chrome and Firefox that lets you make price comparison of products on sale across different Amazon centers. In the example below, you can see that the Nikon external flash SB-700 is £8.1 cheaper at (US) and £16.4 cheaper at (Canada) as compared to the prices at You can also see prices of used items, whenever available.


Shipping costs are not accounted for, but I’m willing to bet a UK customer can save a few pounds if he or she orders this particular item from Canada.

The table is automatically embedded in the product page, by the extension, once the page finishes loading. You don’t have to click any button.

Also notice that the prices are automatically converted to local currency – Great Britain Pound in this case, so the price comparison is even easier. The extension works across all Amazon websites. If you visit, the prices will be converted to US Dollars; if you visit you will see the prices in Yen.

If you do a lot of international shopping at Amazon, this extension can help you save a few bucks.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo
