What does the “A -15%” statistic mean when shopping for armor?

Every book you can buy (and i think other items as well) has an assassin's symbol and a -percentage. What does that mean?

That symbol relates to the amount of influence your takeover of the city is affecting a discounted price at that particular store. If you've removed all of the Templar towers/Templar influence for that region, your discount will be even higher.

The only exception to this is in Cappadocia, where you are unable to remove Templar influence, resulting in a drastic mark-up on all prices.
