Yes, the flags are flying. Thanks for the suggestion! We'll do something with the search as well. One slight complication is that at least one bookseller in Canada ships US domestic. So we need to accommodate them (they would show up in both a US and a Canada search).

Hmmmm.....

Maybe you could have the location of the book display in the search results instead. It will save time clicking back and forth. I always look for something in the US first, and if I can't find it I'll move on to international sellers, but for really large books the cost of shipping from some countries puts the book out of reach.

Thanks for explaining about the pictures.

Hi Jackie,

Search by country: Yes, we could add that. Choices would be a)all countries and b)restrict to one selected country?

If the image is loaded on our site, then the image will be displayed on the search result page. If the image is just a link, then we display the icon indicating an image is available and can be seen on the detailed item page.

When an image is on our site, we create a thumbnail image which is much smaller in size. This helps speed up the display of that search page (the wait for 200 large images, which will be reduced to thumbnail size for display, could be considerable).

Thanks for the comments!

A suggestion and a question
(posted on: March 08, 2010 at 12:42:16)

 
Hello all! I just discovered the forum, and like many of you I'm hoping this site will become a big success. I hope someone can answer a couple of questions for me.

Would it be possible to filter search results by country? It's disapointing to find just the book you want, and then discover that the shipping will be prohibitive.

And when you search, some titles have a picture with the search results while others just have a little camera. Why is that?

Jackie
