Yeah, but it still goes through US Dollars at some point.. so the money
will end up being different all the time..

Id love to use it on my site too.. except of 2 problems..

1. This US Dollar conversion issue..

2. I can't validate myself, because it doesn't seem to like my credit
card.. I've tried everything.. and it just says "Denied" every time.. My
card is fine.. Im booking stuff up on it all the time.. It's just paypal's
systems don't like it.. So.. While Id love to try it out.. I can't use
it.. and if I can't use it, theres probably lots of others who can't too..
which is kind of limiting.

I emailed their support, and they were totally unhelpfull.
