When Five doesn't equal five

Be careful, folks, when it comes to currency conversions and so on. You need to remember that you are charged in US dollars, not whatever your local currency is, if you’re outside the US.

For example, I make $5 purchase, add the $20 option for 1 day turnaround. But I end up paying over $38 due to the currency exchange.

This should probably be made clearer when we purchase, so we don’t underestimate what the final cost will be.

It’s not Fiverr’s problem. PayPal (assuming you’re using it) has a currency conversion fee that all online purchases with foreign currency need to include.
