Put boot in on geo-blocking
Retailer Marks & Spencer must be one of the EU’s worst offenders for geo-blocking.
Looking at the UK site you find black Leather Block Heel Side Zip Ankle Boots at £49.50.
Access the site in French and those Bottines en cuir à talons carrés et fermeture à glissière latérale suddenly cost €70.
Today £49.50 should translate to €54.90 but while I understand that M&S must cover themselves for exchange rate shocks, it seems that that €70 price means they are still working on pre-referendum values!
