I will have to disable automatic billing from Click and Buy.

Since they are based in the UK, and I live in the US, my bank has charged me an "INTERNATIONAL PURCHASE TRANSACTION FEE" of 53 cents for the automatic billing option from Click and Buy. Because I use a "free" checking account with my bank, they reserve the right to charge this fee, and I have no means of disputing it.

I will be switching over to a Playspan/Crysta option and cancelling my automatic billing because of this fee.

Please consider using a North American based company for your NA billing.

*Cheers Catwho on* :) Cheese puffs to you! Being charged anything extra, Even if it's 1 cent.. That is still being charged more for the same thing.

Also note that they charge 5.9% on currency conversion, so either bill me in CDN or don't bill me at all :D

In before someone tells you to suck it up and skip a candy bar or a coffee.

Tell a girl to skip the candy bar? Just steal my pants and show me the blender.

This isn't even a matter of "I can't afford it" or "I don't want to pay more for the same product." I wouldn't even mind if that 53 cents was a price jack from SE, because I actually consider the fees from SE to be the best entertainment value around.

It's "Why the @#%^ should I pay money to a bank I don't really like and only use out of convenience for a charge to a company in the UK for a service that is coming from Japan?"
