Hi team, I have been reading this whole forum and want to thank you for sharing all of your insights. I'm an Australian based shopifier - but originally from Europe where most of my store visitors are from to. Therefore a multiple currency check out is just a MUST! I guess I don't have to go into detail - you are all facing the same challenge!
One more time: Shopify get your act together!
In the meantime I'm looking to instal Multi Country Pricing based on all of your feedback. I've email the guys if they have updated it already so you don't need to be US based. I will keep you posted on my progress.
We have our site hosted in one of those many hosting services. You have to too if you want to use that solution I said. To get your online store compliant with all the requirements for online payment, you just buy an SSL certificate with a dedicated IP address for the store. Buy it from your hosting service. We paid only 60 USD for a year for that.
It is actually easier than it sounds. The keyis to find a hosting service that is reliable and good service enough. There really are a few out there. My tips: find one which service package comes with a cPanel user interface.
Alternatively you can go to Wordpress.com and get all that hosting, SSL, IP and other IT stuff taken care of for you for 25 USD a month. You can then start to create your shop right away. We want a bit more backend control of things so we stick with our own hosting service.
I moved from a self-hosted solution because it required too much web mastering. Security issues and updates required too much attention and eventually we decided on adding a security monitoring service which eliminated the cost savings.
