Since the big increase of exchange rate Euro-US of 20% recently. My freelances costs me 20% higher and the same for the freelancer in europe who has 20% less. 40% gap for euro-euro contract!!
Guys,at odesk have to find a solution to find the best rate for a mission and transactions.
It is your job to do that else someone else will do it anyway.
While I only consider this a minor annoyance, I do agree that it is annoying. Especially as it's a more recent change. When I started here, a few years ago, I did receive my local currency transfers in my local currency. So, it's not like this is something oDesk can't do, since it's what they used to do up until less than a year ago.
Does anybody have an explanation as to why the switch was made in the first place?
