I’ve updated Bookie by adding another online Australian retailer, Fishpond. They seem to have good pricing on some books, and as a big plus, they have an Affiliate program which I’ve signed up for. I’ll get a cut on any books purchased via Fishpond, Amazon UK & Amazon US.
Adding Fishpond wasn’t as straight forward as the other stores. When searching for an ISBN, you can get multiple results, with different product ids and different prices. (According to their support guys, it’s because they give different product ids to books provided by different suppliers.) Just to make life difficult, the product id needed to generate Associate Links isn’t simply the ISBN. After a little bit of Hpricot work, I figured out how to grab all the data required to select the cheapest book ( if there’s multiple results ) and to generate Associate Links.
