We are based on a tiny little island in the Mediterranean called Malta. The whole country is about the size of Las Vegas (and incidentally also really into gambling). Malta is a member of the EU and replaced its former currency with the Euro currency in January 2008. The Eurozone today consists of 19 countries. It was therefor natural for us to launch Candle of Her Brain with the prices for our enamel pins listed in Euro.
However, we know that many of you are from countries that don’t use Euro. If your PayPal or credit card are denominated in US dollar, for example, you may incur currency exchange rate fees and related charges from your bank.
We have been working hard to find a solution to this and are very proud today to announce that we are now able to accept payment in the following currencies:
- Australian dollar
- British pound sterling
- Canadian dollar
- New Zealand dollar
- United States dollar
If you are in Australia, you will see prices listed in AU$, if you are in Canada, you will see CA$, and so on.
By default, we try to guess where you are from based on your IP address. However, the ultimate decision is made based on your billing country, in case the system can’t automatically quite identify where you are.
If are in Australia, UK, Canada, New Zealand, or the US and you still see euro when you go to checkout, please contact us so that we can look into it right away.
And if you are in another country and would like to see your local currency supported, please let us know.
