So why is Microsoft charging more?
A bit of background - I spotted these Ehrman needlepoint kits and wanted the Paris and Eiffel Tower kits. But I soon found out that they no longer had the Eiffel Tower one in stock. So we searched around and found an Australian firm that still had one in stock. I was a bit surprised to see that the AU to US conversion on the site was nearly dollar for dollar.
So first thank you for having a Sydney needlepoint store that carried the Eiffel Tower needlepoint kit - and apparently I got the last one in stock.
But that got me to thinking... the US to AU is near dollar for dollar now....
so why is Microsoft able to charge more in AU than here? Yeah I know just because they can....but just because they can isn't good business in the long run. People will look for options, yes?
