for EEC countries PWE offer purchase option in the most common one, which at the moment is EURO.

Additionally since they have servers based in europe, they must charge VAT, this is done at the rate of 15%, the minimum required by EEC law.

So yes we brits have a double whammy of conversion from sterling to euro and also paying VAT.

See here for relevant calculations and potential explanation of any discrepency:

so 5000+300 45euro

45 euro = is about 35 GBP (35.39 when i looked earlier) then 15% (5.25 ish) ?40.25 tax then maybe 2%(0.80 ish) card charge for the exchange rate transaction.

so just over 41 pounds?? dose that sound right??

also on it says 5 zen is 4 zen in sto, is that correct ??? because i thought that with the changes they was making it was meant to become a flat rate. so 5 = 5.
