    How do you calculate “Total Cost Delivered”? It looks a little off!

    • kevin says:

      Total Cost Delivered is easy to calculate, that’s just the actual amount spent from my wallet at the moment of sale. During this checkout process, I was taking screenshots of anything that moved, while switching currencies throughout the entire checkout. I suspect I managed to break the process, and according to the screenshots the shipping jumped to an amount I hadn’t noticed, due to it being displayed in BTC at the time. This Agora Commodities review is being prepared next.
