Shapeways Pricing Glitch (?) Today
« on: August 01, 2020, 10:46:13 AM »
Hi - Shapeways $/£ exchange rate seems to have gone crazy today - roughly £1 = $0.75 .  The true rate is £1 = $1.31

The net effect is an almost-doubling of £UK prices. I've emailed them, but if you were thinking of ordering anything from them this weekend, it might be worth holding off until they've looked into this.

As a work-around, if you set your currency to Euros at the bottom of the Shapeways webpage, your prices will be what they were yesterday and let Paypal etc sort it out.

Before letting Paypal do currency conversion it might be worth checking their rate against your payment card rate. My bank gives me a better rate than I've ever seen elsewhere, so not only do I get any retailer to use their native currency, I then have to ensure that Paypal charges me in the same currency.
