Im based in the UK. Although the majority of my customers are currently from the uk and the new ones will probably be from the uk. Is it worth advertise dollars also or will this just confuse people? I don't really want to overload my customers with information. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I'd be interested too, although, it soon wont matter as 2checkout are promising to allow me to set prices in £'s, meaning people wont have to email our sales team to get us to custom make a 2checkout payment which converts to the right amount (in dollars which converts to our £ prices).
We are UK based. Our current site is in UK pounds, as 95% of our customers are from the UK. However I'm currently designing our new site which has 3 small flag icons at the bottom that select which currency the user wants to see prices in. The base/default currency is pounds and it retrieves up to date prices via XE. Ordering system will be implemented to work with paypal and 2checkout then insert client details into our customer database. Possibly create account on whm/cpanel too, depends how adventureous I get. I'll post the code up when I'm finished.

Most retailers that deal with multi-currency seem to keep stable pricing in the respective currencies. Isn't this the best way. That way the customers see a consistent price in Euros, say, instead of a price that is floating from day to day relative to the US dollar or UK pound.
OTOH, it can be frustrating if there is a major currency shift, like with the Canadian dollar vs. US last year. By the end of the year everything in the US should have been cheeper, one major software vendor had prices that were fixed at the beginning of the year and you had to pay much more than you should have.
That is very true cleaver. You should only update your prices maybe 1-4 times a year so that they arent always changing. Especially if you have graphics with the prices in them it would behard on yoru end to always update them.
