# Exchange rate fluxuatiuon.

## Recommended Posts

I just noticed while i was purchasing some \$L that the exchange rate changes depending on how many \$L you are buying. For instance, when buying \$3 USD worth the exchange rate was 219.70/ USD.

﻿

While purchasing \$30 USD worth it was 245.72/USD..

﻿

That's ridiculous! Why cheat someone \$L based on how much they are buying? The exchange rate should not fluctuate. It changes by 3 \$L when going from 30 to 300 USD. Bad form LL, bad form.

ETA I forgot to check spelling.. it's early...

It doesn't actually change.

When buying US\$3 worth you get 747L\$

When buying US\$30 worth, you get 7470L\$

That's exactly what you'd expect.

The difference between the two is the transaction fee. 40 cents is a significant chunk of \$3 but not of \$30. So I guess the "estimated" exchange rate for each is the result of a calculation that takes the transaction fee into account.

It looks like they've factored the US\$ 0.40 transaction charge into the estimated exchange rate.

As this is a greater percentage of the lower purchase, it has a bigger effect on the overall exhange rate for that transaction

Well now i feel sheepish.. I didnt actually look at the totals. I just noticed the exchange rates.. Why the fee factors in to that i have no idea.
