Searching For an Item on Amazon Reveals the Lowest Possible Priced New Item Not the Actual Amazon Price

Bug Description

If I search for for example 'Neil Gaiman' and see Stardust, the price banner shows £2.56 and 'previewing' the item shows the Amazon logo alongside 'Buy £2.56' however clicking the item opens the Amazon page which reveals the £2.56 book isn't actually sold by Amazon, but a 3rd party seller charging a £2.80 delivery charge. This could prove misleading to users who would believe £2.56 is the Amazon price which is in fact at least £4.99, wouldn't it make a lot more sense to display the prices Amazon charge for items?
