Well, seeing the actual accounts where revenue share drops in and then looking up the conversion rate is quite awful. Again you get 1 Euro per 1.4 Dollars.
And: There are additional fees for payment services (neither checks nor payment services are free). So, if you don’t want to end up getting:
- -10% by conversion fluctuation (August vs March)
- -4% (service fee foreign countries)
- -1% (service fee incoming transaction)
you have to wait for better conversion rates. Which could take some time, I guess. Long time. The numbers above are estimated for a US$100 lump sum with usual fees in Germany. Post any additional hint if you have one.
The further away t’ coast o’ home, the smaller all treasures seem. Yoho!
