To make payments in other currencies more transparent:
The folloqing table shows mid market rates based on conversions to our base currency US$. Unfortunately we don’t get the mid market rate, our service providers on payments by credit card, PayPal or bank transfer charge us a rate with their margin built into the conversion.
Starting today. January 2 2016, we will publish the rate used in the upper right hand corner under the date of Last Update. Since we have to update many pages in various countries it might take us a long time to update all of them.
The shopping cart with blue background allows payments in non US$ currency, if you feel that you will get a better conversion rate at your local bank or with PayPAL or credit card just use the cart with yellow background and pay in US$.
If you want to pay in your local currency you need to use a site in your country. For example if you are in the United Kingdom and want to pay in UK pound you will need to select one of our sites in the UK.
On trying to offer our customers in the Ukraine payment in their local currency UAH Hryvnia we found no support even from PayPal. But we found a gateway provider with full support for UAH and other more rare currencies.
Rather than dealing with large websites with 5000 or more pages some customers prefer sites with the focus on a small product range only, as indicated by the domain name. These mini sites might make it easier to locate a specific product by starting with the right product group. Currently available in Northamerica with carts for USD and CAD:
