I live in France and can access website for from my laptop (not an Apple product), but when I try to access the same website from my iPad, I get redirected to the UK site. The UK site won't ship to France, so I'm missing out on all the sale goodies!

How can I access the French site on my iPad?

I'm completely non-techie, so a clear answer would be much appreciated.

I suggest you contact the website's technical support, if possible. This sounds more like their website configuration error, then an problem with your iPad. – bassplayer7 Jan 24 '13 at 17:36
Are your iPad and laptop both connected to the same wireless network, or is your iPad connected via the cellular network? It is possible that the IP addresses are different and the website is identifying the source IP as residing in the UK. – lukiffer Jan 24 '13 at 19:46
