looks like right around $0.80-0.81.... I have not seen the exchange near 0.90..... and I do keep track of exchanges because I deal a lot with International buyers (and I buy internationall as well).
it was about 0.75 the other day... so as always, the markets fluctuate.
anything else new?
Also, that is just FLAT exchange rate. That doesn't count any of the companies markups for exchanging the currency..etc.
What does that mean? Normally companies themselves do not handle the cash exchanges (duh) they have to go through banks.... or Paypal.... or some 3rd party service. This costs a fee. That is also included in the price you see @ retail in Canada.
0.80 on the dollar would be equivalent to $180 USD in CDN
IF when making their MSRP the exchange was 0.70.... it would be:
I am sure a markup is built in there for fluctuations in the CDN currency.
Be happy that your currency is now up to 0.80 of the dollar... its normally 0.60-0.65
That means.. you can import for cheaper basically
