How to gain product entry in both UK and USA Google Shopping?

google.co.uk/products v google.com/products

I run a site that uses Zen Cart as the CMS. The prices are in UK Pounds, but I have also used an add-on so that Americans have an idea of what the price is in USD. The USD prices change on an daily basis, depending on the exchange rate etc.

I submitted all of my products to Google Base a month ago, and they appear well in the UK search google.co.uk/products but do not appear at all in the US/global version google.com/products .

Is there a way of getting products from sites that list items in GBP listted in the google.com/products version as well? I've read through many threads here but cannot find an answer.

Can I start another Google Base Account, and submit another feed with estimated prices in USD for example? Will that then appear in google.com/products ?

For anyone interested, a copy of my current feed that is upladed through Google base is here - [cadwyngifts.com...]

Thanks for any advice/help :-)

Just an update. I created a new feed with exactly the same products (well, the feed is generated automatically for me via a Zen Cart Add-On) but this time I chose to mark the prices in USD. I named the feed differently to the feed with prices in GBP £, and in Google base I uploaded the new feed with 'Target country' set as United States. So far so good, the feed was processed, and now the items are listing well on google.com/products (the US version) BUT I checked google.co.uk/products and since the items have started appearing on the US version, they do not appear any more on the UK version! :-\

Both feeds are active, and show no errors therefore I am unsure why this has happened. Could it be that because both sets of feeds are exactly the same other than one has prices in USD and the other in GBP I am being penalised? DO I need to set different product ID's for each feed? I would very much appreciate any feedback on this.
