    On the webpage, you can click a currency icon on the top right corner, and it'll display € prices.
    All the prices you pay on Shoptemp will be in $ though, if I'm not mistaken, your € will be converted to $ during the paypal transaction and paid to Shoptemp.

    Edit: If you use this link, you can see that the price is 12.53€.

    PayPal will handle the conversion I think, and will take a commission, so it the actual price you will pay will most likely be higher than the one shown on the page. And PayPal may also not use quite as good a conversion rate, so they make more money.

    it's better to use USD to see the actual price, because the other currencies are inaccurate
    they dont update the exchange rate frequently... so prices are usually cheaper than they appear [​IMG] because the USD is weak now

    Errr... I'm not sure if that's an error, but the Euro prizes are very low now.

    DSTwo 25,05 Euros
    AK2.i 10,71 Euros

    25 Euros for a DSTwo, that would be... amazing...

    Actually, while checking out with paypal, you can choose to either use paypal's conversion rate or your bank's conversion rate.

    For a daily conversion FROM any TO any currency: http://xe.com

    Paypal adds a bit of interest on conversions and shop-prices are usually only update ones a week, month, whenever.
