Switching back to listing prices in CAD.

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 3, 2015, 7:45 AM

Title says it all.

I'm going to switch back to keeping my prices in CAD for the time being, because the dollar is so wildly different right now that it makes my prices really prohibitive for my Canadian customers. 

What does this mean for buyers?

Basically, everyone gets a better deal. 

My Canadian customers get stable, reasonable prices.  My US and worldwide customers get prices that will be pretty low in comparison because of the vast difference in the exchange rate at the moment.  Here's an example;

I have a cloak listed at $60 CAD.  In USD, that works out to being about $46.  Instead of what I was doing before, where I was listing a cloak at $60 USD, and it costing $80 CAD or more because of the constantly fluctuating exchange. 

Why would I do this?  Aren't I losing money?

Nah not really.  I buy most of my supplies here for really good deals, and to be honest, I just want to clear these items out and take a huge chunk out of my craft supplies stash.  Because, let's face's enormous and it takes up waaaay too much space.

I previously listed my prices in USD because when I take orders for custom items and don't run them through Etsy, a lot of times people will accidentally send me money in the wrong currency.  And it gets frustrating and confusing.  Etsy, however, automatically calculates that mess out for me, and consequently, everyone can see the cost of something in their own dollars.  Better for everyone.  More sane for me.

And that being the case - I still have lots of goodies in my shop at Black Friday/Cyber Monday prices!  And I'd really like them to go away so I can make more.  <3
