Apple is making a key change for some iBooks Store shoppers and sellers in a variety of different markets in South America and Europe.
As first noted in a report by MacRumors, Apple is switching to local currencies for purchases made in the iBooks Store in Chile, Columbia, and Peru in South America. The same is happening in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Romania in Europe.
The currency changes will be implemented 14 days or later from May 9. So, at least beginning on May 23, buyers in those regions should see the changes put in place.
The change will also be made for those who sell books in the iBooks Store. Developers will be paid out in local currencies, and they will be able to change their pricing for digital books when the currency change takes place.
