Amazon / exchange rate

1 Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Review updated:

I just tried to order to fiction novels from Amazon and was shocked by the exchange rate offered. Buyers beware!!

The current rate is $1.35 AUD cents to $1.00 and their rate would you believe is $2.13 to $1.00 US. I think a purchase of $32.73US should be $44.17 where as the charge was $70. can you belive this. Then you have postage on top of this.

Please check this if you buy this is not fair and bad business practice.

Agreed, Amazon are calculating their own exchange rates and they are extremely higher than your standard bank rates. They also make it very difficult for international buyers to revert back to the "advertised" US currency price.

I will not be purchasing items form Amazon again.
