    Hello,

    to avoid the horrible paypal currency conversion fee I'd like to pay PSXbox directely in euro. At first sight, this seem possible as their website allows us to have prices in euros.
    Has anybody already tried that?

    Thanks

    Honestly I wouldn't call the paypal conversion rate horrible. In my last purchase in dollars, I ended up paying 107,3 euros, when the official conversion from xe.com was 105,8. I find it totally acceptable.

    Well the main problem is that if you get refunded you will pay two times the conversion fee! I'm not confortable at all with this.

    If I could pay them in euros through paypal, it would be better [​IMG]
    Thanks for your answer lenselljer, but I think that when using bank transfer it'll end up in the local currency anyway.

    Can you please say what your costs of bank transfer from Holland were? And was the shipping cost 23.50 euro or 17,5 euro's?

    ooh nice I didn't know that was possible [​IMG] So no extra money conversion fees!
    This is what it will cost (if I'm correct)
    Psxbox.net
    € 52.40 (G6 Lite, chinese version) +€ 17.20 (Passcard V3) +€ 17.50 (Shipping) +€ 7 (Bank costs) = € 94.1 euro

    I think I'm going to buy here, it's cheap!
