27$ CDN is 35.50 according to google. I meant it could be, it doesn't fully fit though?

Are the emails sent to everyone set to the currency of the country?

Close enough - Likely a different conversion rate

Makes me wonder if they have people watching the stock markets and changing the price continuously to match. Like a scene from wolf of wallstreet except with more vodka.

I would say more like an algorithm of sort in the servers and computers that automatically keeps track of ever shifting rates, and adjusting accordingly. I wouldn't think that an actual human being is constantly monitoring this 24/7. Maybe a staff would check in periodically to make sure it's priced right, but otherwise I would wager that it's the machines that do all the work.

That's just my guess.

You are most likely right....

It sure lacks the drama though. :cap_book:

FYI just checked mine, and no change between the two screens, but I am US, so I would assume USD to CDN, however it is odd that it displayed on the main page in CDN then purchased at a different amount.

Curious what support says when you submit a ticket.   Maybe some issue on the server, like a typo when they put it up?

Hmm, I think there may be an explanation. The first screen shot of OP shows him not logged in, while the second one shows him logged in.

I'm guessing that the un-logged state shows the default USD price, while it updates and shows CDN price once he logged in.

when not logged on I see shop prices in $ (USD), when logged in I see prices in the ship in my native £ (GBP)
