Hi,

I am an Australian EBay user and want to bid on an item in the UK that appears in my international section. When I give a maximum bid, is it in AU$ or UKGBP ?

Thank you

Bids on Ebay, and therefore on Gixen are always in the currency of the auction.

So if your auction has been listed with a currency of GBP that is what you have to work out your bid in. You can use currency conversion sites to help with your conversion, however please also take into account that services like Paypal, which you might choose to make the international payment, and therefore will do the final conversion to your own currency, will charge you at least a further 3.5% of the total (including shipping cost) just to do that currency conversion for you.

Persia, don't forget to factor in +10% GST for Australia
