MIDAS Knowledge Base
Why are prices on the website different from when I last visited?Whilst we're a UK-based business, we're able to accept payments in a number of major world currencies including US, Canadian, and Australian Dollars, and Euros.
To ensure the lowest possible price for our customers, our MIDAS pricing is regularly adjusted to take into account fluctuations in global exchange rates. These automatic adjustments are based upon data from the ECB (European Central Bank).
This means that the prices you see on our website may vary slightly from one day to the next. That's why we always indicate on any page with displaying a price, the date and time when exchange rates were last adjusted.
We appreciate that for customers wishing to purchase with an official Purchase Order, the price needs to be fixed. That's not a problem - we can "fix" a price for you, if you request a formal quotation or invoice (rather than purchasing outright directly through our secure site).
Because our quotations are valid for a period of 30 days, and our standard invoice payment terms are also 30 days, quotations and invoices are valid for 30 days from date of issue. Even if exchange rates change during this period, your quotation or invoice price remains fixed.
When we generate quotations or invoices, these reflect the current prices listed on our website at the time the quotation/invoice is produced. Within the 30 day validity period, the prices on our website may fall below those on your quotation/invoice. In such circumstances, we will not re-issue the quotation/invoice, and the original price stated on the quotation/invoice still stands.
