On another topic, a client helped us understand why there was sometimes this kind of problem. In reality you can choose your currency on our site but paypal does not allow you to pay in this currency. So you always have to select the original currency on the shop.

Now it makes sense what was happening.   

It went through as a credit card charge in USD, so all is well. 

 

Thanks and I look forward to the game.

Hint for those doing international purchases in foreign currencies: If your card/bank supports purchases in other currencies than your own (usually main currencies like USD, EUR, GBP etc are accepted), always force PayPal to charge in the seller's currency. There is a setting for that which you can make permanent. Pretty much never let PayPal handle the currency exchange unless you have a really old-fashioned card issuer or bank, or are dealing in some really obscure currency. Their rates are much worse than what your bank will charge you, usually even including any fees involved. Over a period of 5-10 years with moderate spending you should easily be able to save hundreds of dollars (!) by not letting PayPal cut through with their exchange rates.

 

Some people are already well aware of this, for others it is completely news even if they've been shopping internationally online for decades.

I knew PayPal was terrible at currency conversions.  I learned that when I bought my Channel F multicart and had the seller reject the payment and asked me to resend in dollars.

 

Glad I could pay for this in dollars so no extra charges for anyone (and proper payment for the merchant).

I’m not really great at these types of games.   My wife smokes me every time.  I just can’t seem to plan my moves ahead properly.  
 

Still I got a lot of enjoyment from Maria and want to support this developer.  
 

Fantasy Puzzle ordered.  Thank you.

Thanks for pointing out that this is possible. Unfortunately it looks like I can't set it to be the default, but I will try to change it with my next transaction payment.

Yeah. I looked around on my PayPal account but can't find the setting. I believe it is there somewhere, but hidden very deep because that is extra profit for them to handle all currency conversions.

Hello Joe, sorry for the late answer, we were very busy with the launch of 3 new books ^^.

 

You can order Maria Small box from the webshop. It'll not affect shipping as you can choose "books and brochures" to pay around 10$ ;)
