Be careful if you purchase from Australia, i was just checking my bank statement and the amount to Paypal was twice what I paid in American money, I paid What I thought was $21 for 10 yellow seeds and 5 double but the actual price was $39.80 they better be good seeds.

Oh, something is amiss there. The exchange rate between Australian and U.S. was 0.953133 as of yesterday: 4.6867%. How your could go from $21 to almost $40 is beyond me. I would contest the bill, if I were you. Starting with the vendor would be a good place to get an explanation and maybe, just maybe, get that adjusted.

Best of luck with all that!

Dois here is a web page that will do all exchange rates for you. http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert/?Amount=21.00&From=AUD&To=USD


BUT some banks charge to send other currency I know my bank charges a good amount to send like the thi bot or aus dollar. this calculates any type with up to date rates and your 21.00 Australian dollar= 22.0885 USA dollar


you need to find out why

Could the shipping be more then what you thought ??

Well I have to admit i never thought about the exchange rate, it was when an amount for Paypal showed up as quite a lot more than the bill, that is when I checked and found out it was because of the rate. all I can say is they better be good seeds.

The rate, meaning exchange rate? 21.00 USD = 19.98 AUD

Something is VERY amiss! I would make an inquiry if I were you.

If you can cancel, I would, and get this instead, for 27 US Dollars, to definitely have a triple yellow blooming in your sunroom within two months.
