Jason Row .NET Development on the Canadian East Coast

Well I've gone and purchased a collection of online SharePoint courses from Microsoft. I'm curious to see how good they are. Collection 5385: Developing Solutions with Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Visual Studio 2005

My first issue that I do have has been the price. It was listed for $191.99 USD on the site but when I switched it to the Canadian version the price jumped to $224.99 CDN. I thought it was just taxes that they had to collect but that didn't come until the next page where the total price ended up being $256.06 CDN.

So why is there a price difference for an online course. It used to be due to the difference in the Canadian dollar versus the US greenback but at today's prices that shouldn't be the case, actually it should have been cheaper than $191.99 in Canadian dollars.

So how do you design a shopping cart system that provides fair pricing to your customers? I would think that you simply charge a credit card and the card company takes care of the conversion rates.

I would have less issues if I knew the reason why I'm being charged more for an online course other than the fact that I live in America Jr.
