    Just looking at the price of something on DVDimport in U.S dollars, as $38.29, which when you click on their British conversion flag, changes it to £21.32. Then did the same conversion on two currency specific sites, and the result is £20.40 (rounded up). Seeing as they dont charge for shiipping, i just wondered where this difference is coming from. :confused:

    Could be either of the following:

    > DVDImport's rate is from a different day to the others
    > DVDImport have used a more realistic "we sell currency at" rate whereas the other sites have used what the city refers to as the "middle" rate. FYI the middle rate is midway between the "we sell at" and "we buy at" rates and is never used for real transactions for the likes of you and I.
