US$ versus £ (and others?) + ?/24

A warning about CCBill’s usuries to residents outside of the US$ zone…

On many websites I have noticed that CCBill charge in one’s local currency – in my case, in GBP.

I thought that this was a ‘nice’ (and convenient) service.

But, this is a typical example of “THE WOLF CLOTHED AS A SHEEP”!

Working out what it should cost in GBP, and compare the result with what CCBill charges; I found that CCBill is slapping on 39+% above the basic rate of exchange.

More than a week ago I sent an email to CCBill, titled ‘usury’, asking how they could justify this exorbitant fee.

Surprise, surprise, CCBill did not reply – did not even bother with supplying the standard bullshit one is used to from banks…

In summary: they have shown; not only are they committing ‘daylight robbery’ but the 24/7 ‘service’, they brag about, is @ their discretion (And convenience!) but may well be 0/7.

Fuming about the above, I sent an email to Videobox, asking for an alternative payment agent, which is mentioned on their website, but is very elusive when it comes to do the business.

Like what has happened inumerable times before during the last two years, I have tried to contact Videobox - as a subscriber or 'outsider' - I had no reply. I.e. the 24/7 'service' is more like 0/365.

Wittyguy (105) Hey Lurifax, welcome to PU. Just as a suggestion, there is a thread in the forum titled "Sites that Charge More in Eur than US". You might want to post this issue there so more people become aware of ccbills current practices.

Thanks Wittyguy.

I do not spend much time in this club and am therefore not well versed in moving around.

Could you let me know how I reach "Sites that Charge More in Eur than US"?

On the main page, go the forum button on the right hand side (navigation bar) on the main page. The forum thread will be (or at least last was) on page 2 of the forum threads. Log in and post your comment.

I see a post by him so I'm guessing he found the forum ok. Thanks for helping to point him in the right direction though.
