    It served as a friendly reminder to others who may be purchasing from ssense to not directly use their credit cards and purchase through paypal. Calm down.

    What do you mean? using paypal doesn't prevent your cc company (if you're paying through your cc) from charging foreign transaction fees. If you're drawing from your bank account, then paypal will apply its own FX rate and it is often a bit off market (i.e. they take their fee on the rate)

    Barneys is now UP to 75% off. Weird thing is, a lot of the designers are at odd percentages. For instance, some Comme pieces are at about %65. Same with some of the Ann pieces. Weird.

    Yeah their system does not do percentage cut automatically maybe!? Usually round up/down to 49 or 99 for some designers. :foo:

    Some of co-op stuff is still the same price.

    Did you read my post? Two ways to pay through paypal: cc or cash (bank or balance). If cc, then back to same issue. If cash, then paypal applies an FX rate so it draws your cash in USD - that FX rate can cost you more than the cc's foreign transaction fee

    ssense is located in canada so if you use a foreign cc, you will get charge a foreign transaction fee.. nothing new here.

    on the other hand, thecorner sucks since they charge local tax (ny) but their cc processing is in the netherlands...

    +2. Great service form my experience as well.


    Excellent, mellow. Hopefully they work for you as Ervell seems to be a great fit for your wardrobe.


    That doesn't sound right. That should have gotten fixed upon finalizing the purchases. I've never had an issue being charged shipping per item before.
