    Special Note for customers with another local currency than EURO
    ShareIt! offers conversion of purchase price into several local currencies, but the conversion factor is often considerably higher than the actual exchange rate. So it might save you costs to pay in EURO, even when your credit card company adds an extra charge for foreign currency. You can review current exchange rate on various places, e.g. at XE.com.
