    Hi Paul,

    First of all thank you for your plugin, I just discovered it yesterday and its great!

    Just wanted to post a message with a suggested improvement. Irish IP addresses should be sent to the UK store. Even though its .co.uk Amazon UK is the store for Ireland, it gives free delivery to Ireland etc.

    If you could implement this in a future release it would be great.

    Thanks,
    Stephen

    Many thanks Stephen for the feedback,

    As you can probably tell, it is very difficult to work out this info directly from the Amazon sites. And quite often there are loop holes that make shopping in one locale or another not the one you might expect!

    The plugin should use the co.uk domain for all IP addresses that it detects from the 'ie' country code.

    However there are a number of reasons this may not work, (e.g. IP2Nation database is out of date, user is browsing through a proxy, or company firewall). Or if you have browsed my site recently - doing some testing that forces the locale to come up as france/'fr'! I have switched this off now - thanks for the reminder!

    Cheers,

    Paul
