Recently when I was checking the exchange rate for dollars to pounds, I noticed that at the moment £1 is worth $1.57. This means that at the moment, a $2.99 comic should cost £1.91, and yet most places local to me always charge £2.35, and Ebay shops tend to charge between £2.10 and £2.50.
I thought maybe we had to pay slightly more because of extra shipping costs, if the comics are printed in America, but I thought when a product has a specific price listed on it, you couldn't charge more than that price. I realise exchange rates go up and down, but the shops could set an up to date price daily or weekly, kinda like pawn shops do with up to date prices for gold.
Does anyone know about this sort of thing? I'd be interested to find out why we're being charged extra.
