Question No option for putting price other than USD in Book Review


Hi,

I want to add book review (already done for Debian System), but there is no way to say that price is in INR (or any other currency). People would have faint when I added '650 INR' and it was showing '650 $' :P

A wishlist bug.

While it doesn't directly address your problem, you could try to find a currency converter, and convert the price to USD, and just note somewhere in the review that the price you have set is converted from another currency, and that it is to be considered an estimate, as you haven't corrected for possibly different taxes, VAT etc.

Using a currency converter would be the best course of action. The prices need to be normalized somehow, and USD is the currency of the country LQ was founded in.
