    Good idea. I am constantly flipping between your site and an open page with a currency converter.

    We have quite a few Canadian clients so we actually incorporated CAD into the system. :)

    Very helpful guide. Ultimate would include PayPal's current exchange rates since that is the truer cost.

    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:

    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?

    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.

    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. ;)

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

    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?

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