    * Adding more countries to website

    We are running a hosting website from last few months and now we are willing to offer our services in UK and Australia as well. We have TLD's for these countries but we are short on budget to buy a separate server at the moment.

    What will be the best option which will allow customers from australia and UK to buy hosting in their own currency? We want to show their home currency on home page and on other pages too.

    We are not willing to use IP detection method because it is not good in terms of SEO. Please suggest

    The cheapest option is to accept PayPal payments. Otherwise you need to speak to your merchant provider to allow you credit card processing in different currencies. This is possible, but will cost you more money.

    Paypal option is available from the beginning itself.

    Since you do not want to use IP Detection, could you not have a small drop down box which shows currencies (USD, GBP, AUD). Once the user has selected their preferred currency, you set a cookie which will last for however long you specify and it also auto selects the currency next time they view the website if that cookie is set.
