The problem with PayPal is that they have pretty crappy exchange rates, and they do not update these very often, so they are not always very accurate. We actually prefer clients to pay directly with their credit card instead of PayPal. Compared to our normal credit card Gateway, PayPal charges us merchants a very large transaction fee too. I think PayPal has a great system and it's very convenient in many ways but the merchant fee hurts. plain.gif

VAT" text is hidden and only the price ex VAT will be displayed because the other currencies are outside the EU and will not be charged VAT. I think it's a pretty nice feature but I'd love to hear what you guys think.

This is super helpful!!! Thank you

Leaves,

Are wide widths available in any Bonafe lasts/models? That burgundy beauty and chukka are calling out to me.

Can't you use a credit card via PayPal? Then you get charged via SEK and your card rate should't be more than a tiny bit more?

Wonderful!

With regard to balmoral boots, would the Forest or the Robert last be better for feet with high insteps?

Could everyone please hurry up and buy this shoe, so that another restock is necessary.  There were no 11UK's ordered as part of this restock, and I want a pair for Summer.

New offerings:

The result of a slight mistake on my part that came out really nice, the restock of model 80277 was speced with a natural sole edge.



This is a new offering in the web shop; Carmina model 910 whole cut in black calf.

Wow, that's a damn gorgeous mistake you made there, Leaves. You should do more of those. And then maybe give us a discount to get rid of the "faulty" product quickly. wink.gif

Regarding the currency converter: don't forget about then non-Euro members of the EU.

That is a terrific pair of boots.

Are the pictures of the Jumper boot on your website new? If I remember correctly, they were a bit more brown before. Are the new ones a bit more red maybe or is it just me?

here is an MTO that Skoak did for me...Heavy Stitch Jumper in Burgundy Cordovan...essentially the jumper model with heavy hand stitching around most of the boot...I will get some more pics once they arrive in the US...

I thought the pebble grain jumpers were burgundy looking at the pics. Is monitor deceiving me?
