Why the total amount in JPY change when redirected to 2checkout secure payment page ?
The JPY total difference between the JGS website and when redirected to 2checkout is due to multiple currency exchange.
To avoid this problem here is what to do.
Choose USD as currency on JGS website. Therefore when transfered to the 2checkout secured payment page, the USD amount will be the same.
Choose a different currency on the 2checkout page (Euros for example). The displayed price on the 2checkout page will be what will be charged.
If you want to pay using PAYPAL it is possible and in whatever currency you want but the best is to be charged in your account currency to avoid currency exchange
The main curency is USD.
Weird for a Japanese based company ? Well 99% of our customers are based outside Japan, this is why USD is used as the main currency for payment at www.japangamestock.com
Hope this clarify things, there is no hidden fees or charges. The difference between the JPY total on JGS and on 2checkout is due to multiple currency exchange (JPY to USD to JPY again). To avoid this select USD and then the currency of your choice on the 2checkout secure payment page, thank you
