Natty new sterling/euro site
Before Christmas, like many people Jamie Lawerence started wondering what the price differences between the Republic and the UK were once the currency differentials and VAT were taken out of the equation. Unlike most of us, he had the techy know-how to work it out and build a website around it. “A bit of work later and I launched dualpricing.ie which lets the user enter a UK and Irish price and it calculates the actual price difference after excluding the differences in currencies and VAT,” he writes. “The website also keeps track of the average price differences for each store and records the best and worst performers” and is, in my opinion well worth a visit.
