I would like to know why Craftsy $20.00 sale is not working for me.
I am wanting to purchase a Cake tutorial but it is coming up at the normal overpriced total.
Kindly acknowledge as my last message seems to have been deleted.
Thank you.

Hi thank you for getting back to me. I am fully aware that your marketing team sends out emails in USD. My question is why promote a sale stating “ALL CRAFTSY CLASSES UNDER $20.00” yet when I click on it the full price comes up in sterling currency (United Kingdom).! $20.00 USD in our currency is £16.29 NOT £27.98. Please do not tell me there are taxes involved as I have purchased $20.00 deals in the past and got the correct currency calculated by yourselves! Regardless of taxes, your prices in sterling does not resemble the sale price! Also ,as I am not buying a physical item, why can I not pay $20.USD? I await your reply. Kind regards Candy
