0.51 USD get converted into 0.57 EUR instead of the otherway

Postby LazyLand » September 8th, 2015, 2:25 pm

My game is trying to open the "buy" dialog with the following parameters:

Code: Select all
                window.parent.YahooGames.dialog('buy', {
                    name: some_description,
                    description: "Get more chips in your game!",
                    icon: order_data.icon,
                    currency: 'usd',
                    amount: 51,
                    transactionid: some token,
                    app: some app code,
                }, function(data) {


So I try to charge 51 US cents. What happens is that a dialog box appears that says the user will be charged 0.57 EUR (I'm in Europe).

Converting 0.51 USD to 0.57 EUR seems very wrong. The value of 1 EUR is 1.10 USD, so 0.51 USD should convert to LESS euros, not more!

Is something wrong with the way Yahoo converts currencies, or am I not seeing something?

Thank you.

We add VAT on top of the price depending on the location of the buyer.
