    USD is worth more. Just business.

    They operate out of canada. Bad business practice to not accept the currency of the country you do your business in.

    We have members from all over the world now, and I think it's easier for people to calculate from USD to their currency, than from CND to their currency, since USD is more well known.

    Well this is my point exactly. Everyone's everywhere, so why not make the button like a location based widget or currency changing widget (i don't know the technical term) Lots of sites use them, gog.com for example.

    I would have to agree with the mods on this one. U.S. money IS the world's exchange rate. That's what I run on my site as well. It's just how it goes. Imagine people trying to convert their money into our Canadian Tire money!!!

    Most companies that offer sales in Canada offer in Canadian dollars, even companies that operate out of the US

    Some even match the US prices in Canadian dollars for services (office 365 subscription for one example)

    Obviously with the US dollar hovering in the $1.25-$1.30 range sticking to US might increase revenue, but I’m thinking more Canadians would be interested in purchasing a product in the local currency, and it would probably increase revenue more than the bump from exchange

    Also depending on what service nex is using to take a payment, it’s costs less fees to take a payment in usd.

    My question is actually how do you buy features? Not very well advertised lol

    Except Canadians have to pay exchange fees to convert to US dollars as well, so it costs us more as well, exchange rate plus whatever the going rate is. So basically $1.35 for every dollar of US price
