Lyn,

Have a look at Member File Swap. I have put a word document there that you can use for reference for posting Hyperlinks.

It's quite easy once you know how.

Hi, it's even quicker to go to the very top of your Ebay page and click on the "services" (blue) link. Half way down the page on the left hand side you will find Ebays currency converter. Hope this helps.

Changes on a daily basis. Just set your search to show in Aust. dollars. Beware you may be hit with GST when goods come into Australia.

Dont forget your Visa / Mastercard will be charged an extra 1 - 1.5% by the bank for incurring a foreign curency transaction.

And beware of the customs regulations around what is taxed with GST when it hits Australia. www.customs.gov.au has more info.

Cheers,

Glenn.

Steve,

You've been getting Heaps of good advice. I thought I would pass on my preferred currency convertor.

x-rates.com

It's much more informative than xe, with currency trend charts available.

Hi Steve,Knowledge is power..You need to know this (even,as most of us go ahead and do it anyway) aspect of your purchase..My understanding,as per latest Jeep Action Australia mag,is that as soon as you import the item,you are deemed to be the Manafacturer and thereby are responsible for all legal/insurance aspects in the event of an accident involving another party,including,amongst other things,the total replacement cost of their vehicle etc..The same part from a local supplier ARB,JBits,Suburban etc,would be covered by their insurance..So,as the smoke clears,it appears that us customers get more than just a part when we purchase locally,as the local supplier has had to incorporate into the price,the cost of liability etc insurance.So we get more than we realise..Re accidents! Murphy's law "If it can happen it will" Hi Ruth in far sth/ea Qld,You'd know all about this no doubt...RockyOne

dont forget freight and GST...yes GST...
anything purchased overseas attracts GST....which is applied to converted rate including freight charges....my understanding is that if small they might leave you alone?
I'm not sure about additional taxes such as excise?

ok, this may get a little confusing ...

www.ebay.com
- will show you prices in US$

www.ebay.com.au
- will show you in Aussie $ - but if the item is from overseas, it will show you in that countries $ and in Aussie $

EG: I just just bought PAPA JOHN by J. Jerome, John Philips (1987)

Winning bid: US $1.25
(Approximately AU $1.64)

Check this ones price

Then compare this ones price - all I did was add .au

Another example the other way round. This is the US$ one this doesnt have .au

This is the US and Aus$ one this has .au

Failing that Xrates calculator is what I use.
