Subscription cost - what currency? $US I assume? or did I miss this somewhere?

Hi,

Forgive me if I'm as blind as a bat but where does it specifically list the currency that the Martenson Report (i.e. subscriber based) is in?

I assume that it's $US but it would be good to know for certain.

It would of course be great if it was in the currency of the country of purchase - because for some of us (i.e Australians), the $30 per report turns into $45 + conversion charges by the bank - so your talking now close to $50 AUS. If your in NZ, your looking at a $56 NZ cost + bank conversion charges.

A $300 $US yearly subscription turns into 450 $AUS and 560 $NZ respecfully if the currency of purchase is indeed $US.

Anyhow, I didn't really want to turn this into a grizzle session for those of us living with currencies that don't measure up to the $US (but thought I'd throw it in as it's a point often overlooked by some).

Can someone point me to where it states what currency the report is to be paid in explicitly?

Thanks

:-)

All subscriptions are in US Dollars.  It is not explicitly stated on the subscription page, but we will do so now so there is no confusion.

[Edit: The Subscribe, Donate, and Checkout pages have been updated to reflect that all transactions are performed in US Dollars.]

Thank you Ron - much appreciated :-)

(and for confirming that I wasn't going blind / didn't see it - I sometimes have a tendancy to miss the obvious!)

Re: Subscription cost - we need a bailout!

i was going to post something similar, but about the increasing cost of a subscription for everyone outside the US because of the strength of the dollar.

My subscription has expired and i cant really afford another. Sure, things are tough but they are extra tough because of the weakness of the pound against the uber-dollar. One months subscription is almost a days wages now!

How about a bailout for us Brits Chris? we need the advice more than most on this forum!
