Why Are My Prices in US Dollars and Why Do I Need a Credit Card?

Last updated: May  31, 2024

Why Are My Prices in US Dollars?

The simple answer is that most of our suppliers, clients, and staff come from the international community. We have had to find a currency that works most of the time for everybody. The most important reason, however, is that our major suppliers are US-based companies. Many of the products we offer, such as Google, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter services, are from companies based in the US. When we deliver these services to you, we have to pay in US dollars. With currency conversion, we lose money—not just us, but you too. So, to keep it simple, we charge in USD and pay in USD.

To make it clearer, let's say you order a PPC campaign from us. When we pay Google for that PPC campaign, they charge, for example, $67 per click. The bid price is adjusted in US dollars and charged immediately to the registered international credit card account—in US currency.

Why Do I Need a Credit Card?

Having a credit card registered to your account makes it easy and convenient for processing transactions and tracking your financial footprint. Bank drafts, checks, savings accounts, money orders, and cash don't work well in the digital world. However, there are some alternatives if you prefer: these include Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies, and PayPal credit. But even with these alternatives, you will still need a card to transact money with these instruments at some point.

So, we have found the common denominator that makes life easier for you, the business owner, in the digital world: the bank card or credit card. You are still free to pay in whatever currency you wish, but remember, Google charges for their ad services in the currency they choose. We have to adjust for that cost, and there is no discount. To be fair and precise, we do so as a necessity to avoid passing on additional costs to you or including buffers just in case there is a significant movement in exchange rates. So, if you don't have a credit card, at least an international debit card should do.

We hope this makes great business sense to you.
