hey guys.. i have been building my store over the week and i almost finished but i have some questions

1- what cheap ADS alternative do you guys have instead of facebook and adwords? since they are very expensive.. i dont think that will worth waste my money on it.

2- i was testing payment gateways yesterday and i notice that i was being charged in my local currency instead of USD. this isnt BAD but they dont convert the price. Example: Product 1 was listed for $2.50 and instead of convert to R$8.20 it charged just R$2.50. I dont understand this part. Also what is the best gateways to use nowadays? since i cant add paypal because they ask for a business account... and i cant upgrate so need others options

3- SEO make any difference in the product description?
