We use daily data for a period of 219 days on the price of imported books from an online retailer based in India in order to study price stickiness and exchange-rate pass-through. The price changes in our sample are a mixture of idiosyncratic and synchronized price changes. Exchange rate pass-through is found to exist but is imperfect.
