Over the past few months, we’ve noticed that proportionally more stores are being created from within Europe. Based on feedback from our European users – and also because we are based in Belgium/Europe ourselves – we’ve decided it would be better to change our pricing structure from USD to EUR starting January 1, 2013.
We realize that this might put off some users in the United States and other countries where EUR is not the official currency, but in order to avoid problems converting one currency to another, we’d like to keep things simple by only charging in Euro’s to all customers. The conversion to your own currency will be handled by your bank instead.
Nothing changes for your clients. It is still as easy as before to set your store in your own local currency so that clients can buy from you in any currency you want (if we support it). However, when you get your SolidShops invoice, it will be in EUR instead of USD.
Clients that have received invoices from us before will have received a special deal from us to accomodate for the change. New clients will simply receive their invoices in EURO’s.
Thanks for your understanding everyone. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
