While Rogue Amoeba is based in the United States, our products may be purchased from anywhere with internet access. In fact, more than half of our sales are to customers outside the US. The following information may be helpful for those users ordering from another country.
When our store detects your location (or when you change the location manually), prices for the items in your cart are adjusted to the local currency. Note that these prices are estimates using recent exchange rates. The actual charge will be in US Dollars, with the exact amount shown.
