For years I have had to pay a 4% currency conversion rate from my CC on any purchases from companies outside the USA. I am very reluctant to buy from any company outside of the USA, but on rare occasions when it is the only place to get what I want then I have done it . Some of my Parchment craft patterns and CD's were from the UK and they were very expensive.

The actual foreign currency conversion is not favorable against the USD, plus the additional postage and the 4% currency conversion rate to the CC makes things quite costly.
If they add an additional up to 4% CC fee I will definitely never buy from a company outside the USA.
