I've noticed recently that the markup on items in my shop fluctuates slightly from what I had originally set. All prices appear in Euros and I'm assuming that as the exchange rate Shapeways uses changes then you update not only the cost of the model but the markup as well. Can I suggest that this probably isn't what most of us expect or want. I would assume that if (for example) I apply a mark up of 1.5 euros then that should always be the markup regardless of the base price.

I think there are a number of options any of which would make the markup easier to manage
- make the markup a fixed amount not dependent on exchange rate
- allow the markup to be a percentage of the base price rather than an actual amount
- simple show the cost (and markup) in dollars so that the exchange rate is taken out of the equation meaning the markup won't fluctuate
