As one of our European users pointed out, although we offer multi-currency support in the items on your wishlist, some of it wasn’t working quite right. We recently released some updates so that our wishes can all live in peace, regardless of where you find them.
The way this works is pretty simple. If you find something in Euros (say, at amazon.fr) it will show up, as you’d expect, in Euros on your wishlist.
Now, we’ll make sure not to average/mix up the currencies on you. You’ll notice the price is only from “1 store.” That’s because it has only been found from one store in that currency. If you’re interested in seeing the prices in other currencies (likely from stores in other countries) you can still see them all in the pricing table further down the page.
Wishlisting is far from perfect from an internationalization perspective (ex. everything defaults to US Dollars everywhere on the site) but hopefully these fixes will help make individual wishlists usable amongst friends anywhere.
Thanks to user metamatik for the suggestions!
