Haha Diane I probably understood your last idea the most! I really can't thank you enough for taking the time to help me. I hope it'll help others too, who are interested in bananas. Yum! I'll show you some pictures when I get it right!
I'm from Malaysia, and I own an online jewelry shop.
I plan to revamp my website with a new brand identity. And in the process, I had an idea to split my website into two, one site for local and neighbouring visitors, another for international visitors (US, Australia, Canada, etc).
The reason being, is so I can set the local currency for the local site, and USD for the international site. I use Mal's E-Commerce so this currency conversion cannot be done automatically.
However, it is easier for me to ship locally; handling is easier and receiving payment is also easier for me (I don't have to go through Paypal, if I were to withdraw Paypal credit into my card, I'll be charged a heavy fee. So most of the time money sent to my Paypal account stays there and is "not in my hands" if you get what I mean) so I can afford to charge local buyers a price that is slightly lower than the price set in USD in the international site.
Question now is: Would you, as an international customer, be peeved and pissed off at the fact that local buyers get a lower price? Eg. USD10.00 (international price) and USD8.00 (local price).
I for one, feel this situation is a little vague in terms of ethics. I need your opinion, please!
Did you say you're hosted at a free server? I'm not sure if I understand. Do you have your own domain, or were you asking about blogspot.com and wordpress.com?
As far as I know, Wordpress is wonderful! I've used both before, and feel that blogger can only go so far. With Wordpress (I have it as a content managing system on my site as well), I can make any layout I want and have Wordpress integrated into it.
These might very well be the best cupcakes I have seen! If you wouldn't mind I would love to know how you made the cups! They are SO realistic! I have been having such a hard time getting mine to look anywhere near as good as yours are!
Thanks so much, LunaKitten! I am running a business on these, and I support protecting trade secrets. I am very sorry about this, but I hope you understand!
