I stand corrected.

Which makes it even more mysterious, as the journal would probably have to
pay the AI.

I was using the Amazon website on my desktop, via the Google Chrome
browser. I've just tried the Amazon website on my ipad, using Google
Chrome. Works perfectly for me. Were you perchance using the app?

I use an iPad that will use Safari, when I use Amazon app, it opens in
whatever app Amazon will use (default to without my intervening) I see no
indication that it is using Safari so I assume it is Amazon’s own app that
is used to view the pages. In the past, I have seen the option to change
currency and at one time, after browsing for summat or other, the page
changed to Merkin site complete with dollars. That was a long time back and
I have switched back to UK currency and been using that for a few years
-but now, USD rules and no apparent means of toggling the boodly thing back
again!!! HARR boodly RUMPH!!!

(The more I hear about "apps", the more I am glad I don't use them!)

Can you - rather than "use Amazon app" - manually open a browser on the
device, then point that browser at amazon.co.uk? (Or does doing so cause
the "app" to open? If so, can you try with a different browser?) If that
doesn't work, can you use a different computer - even someone else's, as
long as you can log in as you - to change the currency?

Problem solved (for now anyway!) I followed the Amazon instructions I found
on the web when I searched to solve the problem; I found my settings were
all as they should be and in GBP. I then decided to tap on the Bust icon at
the bottom of the main Amazon page and followed through to some more
settings and found that one of those was set for USD!!! Now changed to GBP

I have no problem with currency, but I looked for curiosity: at the
bottom of the main Amazon page (I assume you mean what appears when you
go to amazon.co.uk), I see no bust icon - lots of links, but they're all
text; below "Your browsing history", which is the bottom graphical
section, the only non-text thing I see is footer_logo, their name with
the smile arrow under it.

No problem - I have the two ways of changing the currency, and I'm in
pounds anyway.

Are you using an iPad in its’ native viewer and the Amazon app as

No, just an ordinary browser (Chrome) on a Windows (7-32) laptop. Maybe,
since I have the flag and the hamburger menu, I don't need the bust.

I see no 'Bust' icons, but they do try to sell me a sports bra from time

(The combined offering of a 'bra' and 'sports' to me suggests that their
customer profiling algorithm really needs some fundamental improvements.)
