As of the 28th of June 2015, GYD is trading at GYD$207.21000671 to USD$1.00.

It is our recommendation that when converting the cost of your merchandise from GYD to USD, you divide by ‘206’.

However, fell free to use the exchange rate(divisor) as seen best fit by your internal financial department/consultant. We will not object provided that you keep your bottom line at GYD$200.00 to USD$1.00

TIP – If you’d prefer to convert at the exchange rate as per recommended by your own financial department/consultant, please include your sales department in your decision making. The displayed cost price in USD as influenced by your conversion rate can serve as an incentive or deterrent to a paying customer.

Listing items on can be considered a relisting of the same product on a virtual platform. When relisting your item to the public in US Dollar, it can carry a US Dollar price that isn’t necessarily the exact equivalent to the Guyana Dollar. You’d be interested in utilizing ‘Psychological Pricing’ aka ‘Price Charming’ where you list an item for USD$9.95 instead of USD$10.00, USD$14.99 instead of USD$15.00 etc.
