Why shopping in foreign currency benefits you?
Lots of great products from overseas websites. Kitchen wares at up to 70% off department store prices. Great home ideas and innovations at good discounts. Better value on house ware products… and more…
But you are concerned – products are listed in foreign currency. Is it going to be more expensive? I don’t know the exchange rate. Will I be charged higher fees? Don’t worry about it!
- You’re buying products from the source. Which cuts out the middleman and gives you savings!
- Japanese goods paid in Japanese Yen, eliminates the foreign currency exchange and poor conversion rate charged to you by banks and intermediaries.
- More savings to shop in foreign local currency! Shopping for foreign products in your home currency forces you to pay a fixed exchange rate which would be pegged at a higher rate than a current exchange rate charged when you pay by foreign local currency at the point of purchase.
- Shop in foreign currency and get up to 10% savings upfront! If you insist to pay in your home currency, you could be paying a “dynamic currency conversion” fee (around 3%) plus transaction fees (around 3%) on top of currency exchange rates, which makes you pay extra 6-10% fees for nothing!
