Dear Sir / Madam,
I would like to draw your attention to what seems to be a blatant fault admitted by this company “the invoice was correct at the time of payment; this is simply a glitch in our software”. That they refuse to refund such a paltry sum is beside the point. As they freely point out that “this is simply a glitch in our software” means that this happens to all their customers bills.
Would you please be so kind as to advise me what to do on this matter?
Thank you Paul Gourju

Paul, I understand that you could appreciate a refund, but your request is unjustified. You paid the correct amount, and the invoice was correct at the time of payment; this is simply a glitch in our software since our base of operations is in the US. We are not going to issue a refund, and I would advise using your Paypal invoice if you need an invoice for your records and dismissing this matter, because you were correctly billed and you agreed to pay a total of 20.13 and that is what you were charged.

Best Regards,
Mike Freeman

Hi Mike, I appreciare your predicament but you can hardly invoice someone for one amount and then charge them for more on their credit card. The other way around would of course be acceptable but here it is not the case. I would suggest that you find some other way of wording your invoices but in between times I would still appreciate the refund.
Thanks for your understanding Paul

Hi Paul, our invoice system varies slightly depending on the USD-EUR rate, but the price of 20.13 was accurately billed when you completed checkout. Please let me know if we can be of any further assistance.

Best Regards,
Mike Freeman

    I don't get it...if you were charged what you agreed to pay at the time, then why are you asking for money back from these guys? Paypal isn't like a merchant account. A seller can't choose to 'take' more out of your account than you agree to pay at the time of purchase, and when you sign into Paypal you see the exact amount you are paying and you hit the PAY NOW button, and that's the amount Paypal sends to the seller, no more, no less. So, if you agreed to the price at the time and you still have the product that you paid for, what's the problem? You want them to pay you for a technical issue, even though you paid the correct amount to begin with? From the content of your post, the problem with their site seems to be that their totals are based on US Dollars, so viewing these totals in Euros WOULD be off if you look back on it months later. It does makes sense, because it shows your purchase was made back in January, and the US Dollar has fallen drastically over the past couple of months. This would make the calculated totals for your items go down in Euros when you look back on it now. As long as you paid what you agreed to pay at the time (and the answer is YES if you used Paypal), then the problem you are describing is just a technical issue. Why not give these guys a break and enjoy the product that you correctly paid for?
