All the orders I've placed with Pixmania have shown on my credit cards as UK transactions.

From ordering from a foreign site, in Euros / Dollars etc. It's your credit card's charge for paying in a foreign currency.

Guess I'll have to wait to see what the credit card company say first. Thanks folks tho!

could be that you card has been cloned and they have used it for a test purchase. just a thought, dont panic!

I thought that it was, even though it is part of the Dixons / Currys / PC World outfit.

It was delivered within the UK and the charge was taken 6 days after payment for the goods

Nope Euro's, they are a french company, thats probably where it comes from. Pixmania are useless, and will sell their own grannies if it made them some cash

Yeah the fee is from your credit card company. They will have paid pixmania in euro's and converted it to sterling for your credit card bill, then charged you a fee for the privalege :thumbsup:
