Not that long ago I was banking
cheques at 1.43, so 1.77 is a 19% cut in income. Some of my site is subscription based so I increased my USD prices to compensate. The affiliate income is rising so overall I am surviving.
I have put up notices to encourage my UK and European visitors to buy from US merchants and gain the discount. It is working especially on the specialist suppliers where the US has a larger selection to choose from. So far this week 37 buyers were US and 7 European.
If I can move some expenses over to US$ then that may help but I am reluctant at the moment to use the US for hosting
, just in case
of a problem.
