    Hi,

    Generally in this case the destination would not be changed, but there are a couple of exceptions where locals have suggested that they use a nearby country’s store: Ireland goes to UK, Austria and Switzerland go to Germany, and Portugal goes to Spain.

    If there is something I dislike “on the net” is to assume that swiss people do speak german 🙂

    I’m from the french speaking part of Switzerland, and geographically, we are almost 40%, and if I visit amazon, it will be at amazon.fr !

    @petewilliams, you plugin seems great, and I’m going to try it, what I say above is just to let you know about it, that a big part of a country might just “leave” while landing on the wrong language site, that can be the case in Belgium as well…

    Cheers !

    Can you tell me more about the nearby option? Can these exceptions be set by the admin? I’d like to use it on an international site that has a lot of swedish users. Most swedes would shop from amazon.co.uk. That probably goes for all Scandinavian countries.

    Idea for a feature: if the country isn’t covered by a Amazon store, open a dialogbox where the user can pick the preferred amazon site. Save the result in a cookie. This would work on Switzerland too without insulting anyone. Right now I think there are too many countries that falls in between.

    At the moment there’s no ability to set the exceptions manually, this may be something I’ll add in a future version. Currently the only exceptions are: Ireland goes to UK, Austria and Switzerland go to Germany, and Portugal goes to Spain.
