Yep it's now all good. But for a while someone had unticked a couple of little boxes while they upgraded the backend.

I'm sure you have picked it up in another thread somewhere on BV but here goes, have you noticed how even though our dollar is strong we really aren't buying that much more from these sites, particularly Wiggle, PBK and CRC to mention just 3?
They have put their prices up so they get the benefit and not us, WTF?
Do I still use them, yep, but not as frequent as there are many sites questing for our hard earned and like many I still throw dollars at our LBS here at home.

For example, these wheels

Are listed as $1,039.48 AUD
Or £629.99 GBP, which using today's exchange rates gives you $980 AUD. Basically I believe you get a better rate by leaving the payment in pounds and letting your bank do the conversion

The above link is useful for checking actual exchange rates, assuming you pay with visa.
Quick comparison on Gel Kayanos for 75.37 pounds after the 15% discount.
With Visa exchange rate = $117.52
With Paypal exchange rate $121.79
With Wiggle exchange rate $126.60
Most banks will charge you an extra 2-3% on international transactions but it still generally works out better than using paypal.
