A heads up for brazilian users.

Bug #25 has been fixed. What that means is that the conversion from USD to BRL no longer uses the fixed rate = 2.00.

Instead, FS now pulls the conversion rate from google, and adds 4,5% – an estimate of the expected conversion rate that will be used by Paypal (since there’s no way to get a precise rate from Paypal).

We might have to make small adjustments to that number as more payments are made. If that’s the case, we’ll add an update to the corresponding issue on FreedomSponsors (you can click the “Watch” button there to be notified of updates)

As always, feel free to look at the code.
