The price is in USD. If you use a Canadian credit card you will be charged the exchange rate (for some point of the day, the card company can decide, it is not necessarily the rate at the time of purchase) + fee specified by your card for the currency exchange (on the order of 2%+ I believe). Where you have the item shipped is not relevant.

It's an American site so it's kinda obvious that unless it says otherwise or there's an option to display prices otherwise, the displayed prices would be in USD. Your CC would - as someone has already said - be charged in USD, and your bill would show a converted amount in CAD.

So if i get it rigth since my cad bank card is in cad and registered it should show the price in my cad currency or i did miss something because they never asked if i wanted to pay in usd or cad and since i never seen the little scrooling menu to choose my currency i just assumed that was the cad price since no mention of usd like with ebay and i got charged 50% extra of the price that is calculated at checkoutanonymoushelper wrote: ↑Feb 18th, 2018 10:20 amThat's a great question! Glad I wasn't the only one not understanding Amazon's price displayed.
After search around even on Amazon's website... here are the list of countries supported to automatically (it seems) show the USD price in your country's currency based on which CC (AMEX, etc).

I tried the 1-click without risking purchasing it, and doesn't find what Amazon suggested here... Amazon should rly make a step-by-step tutorial than having these info all over the place to hide info:

Not only is your answer incorrect... you're 3 years late to the party. Canadians can certainly order from Amazon.com... I do it all the time for items that aren't available on the .ca website.

Has anyone figured out which is typically better, ie cheaper?
