Actually, I find every free book of the day that is sponsored on here on Amazon.de (I use that one even though I live in Italy), so it's not a problem for me personally, although I understand the frustration for others.

Well, in my country we have to use Amazon.in, and the BOTDs were free there as well and I could access them directly from the giveaway page link. However, once I made some purchases from Amazon, it took my address (instead of my kindle device as the destination) and afterwards whenever I clicked the link on BOTD page, it showed the book was not available for purchase. When I checked for the book directly in Amazon.in instead of going there through the BOTD page link, I found it was free and was able to download it for kindle app. I'll have to check again tomorrow to confirm this, though.

The solution provided here don't work for some countries like mine, Nigeria. I guess it's probably a restriction by Amazon. Not sure though. In addition, kindle unlimited doesn't work here.
I am from Nigeria too. I get excited when I receive emails that there is free book available, but when I try to download, I can't download or see any download link on Amazon. The Kindle unlimited is a story for another. It makes me unhappy and make me visit this site less often now, because my review opportunity is critically hindered by the this amazon and KU unavailabity.

Hi,

The problem happens only when the book is free at Amazon.com
but not free at other Amazon sites.

One potential solution is for the author/publisher to provide the book
free of cost in the 5 or 6 Amazon country sites in addition to Amazon.com.

A free book is a free book irrespective of which country
the book is downloaded from, so the author/publisher should not
have any problems offering the book for free in all the
sites (except of course the manual work of adding the
book in the other Amazon sites).

I think the above approach is straight-forward and helps.

Transfering the account to Amazon.com may not be a good idea, as the
terms & conditions change from country to country.

My 2 cents.

Thanks.
