Currencies and Exchange Rates

International customers are often frustrated by pricing policies on e-commerce websites. You might wonder why you have to pay a premium simply to use your own currency. Well, we agree.

The Perfect Exchange Rate, Every Time

All of our books have a base price in US dollars. All prices in other currencies are converted from that price using the current Yahoo! Finance rate, with no markup applied. The rates are updated once a day, so you may see slightly different prices from day to day. Today a paperback could be £19.47, and tomorrow it could be £19.49. That means you’re getting a perfect rate and you can be sure you’re not paying extra just because you live in Taipei, Tokyo, or Toronto.

A Range of Global Currencies

We offer the following currencies here on Eastbridge:

  • US dollar
  • Australian dollar

By default the website will select the currency most appropriate to your region. If you live in an area with a currency we do not support, it will fall back to US dollars. However, you are very welcome to shop in any of the currencies we support. Live in Seoul and want to pay in Euros? No problem! Just select the currency you prefer from the dropdown menu at the top right of each page on this website.
