Currencies

When I see prices on this website, they are usually followed by three little blue letters. What's that all about?
Those letters indicate which currency the price is in. For instance, USD is United States Dollars, and GBP is Great Britain Pounds.

Wow! Do you expect me to memorize all those codes?
You don't need to - when you see a code in a price, just place your cursor over the code, and a tool tip will pop up, explaining what the code stands for.

But I need prices in my own currency, not some foreign currency!
When you see a foreign price, just place your cursor over the price this time, and you will see the amount converted to U.S. dollars.

That's cool.
Thanks. Now, try it yourself - $100 USD, £100.00 GBP, €100.00 EUR...
What if I'm not from the U.S.?
U.S. dollars are the default setting, but in your membership settings you can choose which currency you want as your preferred currency. The conversions will then appear in your chosen currency.
