Something must be driving up the price of books in Spain?


this is geotargeting. More and more websites show different prices for different countries, first and foremost travel agencies and flight tickets. The differences are often *very* big, when you go to the same page in more or less the same moment via proxies in different countries.

Also many sites now adjust the prices to your consumer behaviour, via your history on their site or via tracking you thru the web. If they think you like to purchase expensive goods, the prices go up for you. Many websites are very sophisticated in using these tricks to optimize their income.

Just using a separated virgin browser profile can already help a bit.
