    Hello folks . . don't laugh too much :eek:

    I was playing Robo defense free version and now my credit card has arrived I want to buy the whole game. All prices in the market are in dollars ($2.99 in this case) and not pounds. How does this relfect when I make a purhcase using my UK based credit card? Do i get charged extra for this? Or does the amount get changed at the current exchange rate and i get charged in pounds on my next statement?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Usually, your bank charges you.

    Ask your bank.

    You'll get charged in pounds, but it will show on google checkout as USD or EUR. Basically work on the premise that it is slightly cheaper than what it shows.

    It actually approximates the GBP cost at checkout Robo Defence works out around

    I'll give it a blast and see what happens, my Credit card is from Egg and I just wanted to know if they charge me any extra because the payment has to be convered into USD rather than GBP - thanks for all the replies :D
