just so i got this shopping thing right

Post  gmottl@yahoo.com on Thu May 27, 2010 8:06 pm

i placed an order yesterday morning mountain time using a paypal echeck. i bought the doubledriver, acceldriver, prism bicker, xtreme memory, stag phone, denden sensor and frog pod. i'm not giving my amount but there's a 14 dollar difference between when paypal is charging my account and when i spent at the store.

when i've been told is cstoys will set my items aside until my echeck clears after a week and a half and then they will ship it, which is good since xtreme and the prism bicker are sold out again at this time. shipping is already included in the store price but will take 2 weeks according to SAL but may take 4 to reach me.

when the order gets to my post office i have to pay GST(thanks malroony) and a $5 per item, but i think they mean package, handling fee for canada post.

do i have this right or am i missing something, and whats with the extra $14 bucks to paypal.

I'm not sure I followed a lot of what you said, but I do know this: the extra money to PayPal is because they use a different exchange rate than the one the store uses. Their rate is usually worse for us and so you end up paying more. This is why I switched from using Paypal to using a credit card on the store directly.

Just to back up what Jedimon said, yes, the difference is in Paypal. The Paypal exchange rate is often 2-3 Yen LOWER than the actual exchange rate, and in an order that size, can definitely amount to $14. If PayPal is your only option though, you don't have too much of a choice until you can get a debit card or whatever.
