If you publish to Smashwords, that e-book distributor sends out changes to its affiliates, and they then add books to their catalogs, update prices, republish books to reflect new covers, editing changes, whatever.

Recently I changed the price of one of my books, and below I've listed the lag times between reporting the new price to Smashwords and Amazon, which still is playing games with Smashwords.

Amazon - one day
Kobo - one day
iTunes - one day
diesel - one day
Barnes & Noble - four days
Sony - well, no change, because Sony removed two of my books from their catalog and still has not reinstated them … Smashwords is investigating the disappearance.
