As you may have noticed, we are based in the United Kingdom and hence, our website prices are by default set to GBP - the Good ol' British Pound. For some time now we have provided a conversion facility for several currencies which has enabled customers using those currencies to view our product prices in those currencies.
However, that has been as far as it has gone. As soon as an item is placed into the shopping cart, the currency reverts back to our base currency of GBP. This follows through into the Checkout where our customers orders are charged in GBP. This is far from ideal as the transaction into a customers local currency takes place in the banking system after their order with us has been processed and consequently can be of a slightly different amount than expected.
But, from today that's all changed. We can now process credit/debit card orders in nine different currencies in addition to GBP. This means that the currency selected will be displayed on the product price, in the shopping cart and most importantly, in the Checkout where the charge will be made in the currency selected. So, no more guesswork, no more worries about exchange rates and currency fluctuations - the price you see is the price you pay.
The currency which are supported for payments are:
Hong Kong Dollar
New Zealand Dollar
