Create a link in any currency with the exact amount

Create a link in any currency using the exact amount. 

If you work with international clients, you may want to send them your link in their own currency. We had trouble finding a decent tutorial on Google so decided to write this article to help others looking for the same term. Ordinarily you would send your link with your account name and your client would add the amount. The problem with this is that it will default to your home currency when they add the amount. This could end up with overcharging or undercharging your customers and upsetting them and nobody wants to do that.

Note: this works with MOST currencies but not all, so make sure you check the link first before sending the, to your clients. You can see if it works quite easily, so don ‘t jump in without testing first!
