GoInterpay, Conversion Rates, and Preferred Currency

Sideshow has partnered with GoInterpay to offer collectors an improved purchasing experience with exciting benefits and more payment options.

Local Currency

As of January 15, 2018 all credit card and PayPal transactions are completed in the collector's local currency by default. This will save the majority of international collectors 2-3% by eliminating the Foreign Transaction Fee (FX) assessed by most major credit card companies.

Should a collector prefer to have payments processed in USD, this option can be selected by accessing the “Payment Methods” area in your Sideshow online account. For detailed instructions on how to select USD as your preferred currency, please visit the Help Desk page located here.

Prices shown on the Sideshow website in the collector’s local currency are estimates based on the conversion rate from USD to that currency provided by our payment processor. Rates are provided once per day. Please note, the amount processed for a payment is based on the conversion rate on the date of the charge.

Refunds

Refunds processed in a collector’s local currency will be refunded at the same conversion rate for up to 90 days from the date the payment was processed. Any refunds processed outside of 90 days from the original charge date will be refunded at the conversion rate on the date the refund is processed. Sideshow is not responsible for fluctuations in the exchange rate that may impact refund amounts.

PayPal

All collectibles offered on the Sideshow website are now eligible for payment via PayPal (with the exception of certain territories where PayPal is unavailable). PayPal can also be used in conjunction with a flexible payment plan. You can add a PayPal account as a form of payment by accessing the “Payment Methods” area in your Sideshow online account.

Additional Payment Options

In an effort to make the purchasing experience even more convenient and offer greater flexibility to our collectors, several other payment options (in addition to PayPal and Credit /  Debit cards) will be available in the near future.
