Please note that prices are in Australian dollars because that’s where we live. You can click a button at the top of the page to get a Canadian dollars ESTIMATE, but we are at the mercy of exchange rates. The Australian dollar price is AUD$300. This equates to between CAD$260-275 unless something radical happens to the exchange rate.
If you opt to pay by invoice, we will also invoice you in AUD, not CAD. We will show you, on the invoice, how to deposit the AUD amount from your Canadian bank.
Paypal will do your conversion right there and then, as will paying securely by credit card on this site.
We can also take credit card payments over the phone, but boy, our time zones don’t match haha!

Rule-breaking words and the real reasons they do this
The difference between vowels and consonants
