I think that @Falzo is suggesting disabling it altogether and to let people decide for themselves whether to run it through a translation program. After all, only the English version is the legally binding version.

Perhaps this is worth an FAQ item?

Perhaps disabling auto-translation for ToS and instead linking to a “TL;DR no guarantee/non legal binding” ToS summary with auto-translation would be the way to go. Iirc @Francisco has a Tl;dr ToS version and it’s great :slight_smile:


I advise clients when asked to use stripe rather than pp if making international payments.

so with stripe I would have been aked for the 5.80 ? I haven’t used srtipe for quite a while, so genuine question :wink:

The problem with paypal is they always revert back to our accounts default currency no matter the currency the token from WHMCS was sent in.

alright, will see if and when I renew about it… if the stripe thing does not work as intended, I hope you can at least change the currency back to GBP in your system then for future invoices? As said it’s not neccessarily about the difference but about tax declaration :wink:

however, let’s see what that box can do. came with centos :face_vomiting: instead of the requested debian, but hey, I guess that’s due to the manual install :wink:
good chance to see if and how the reinstall works though…

Yes. That too is what my response implied.
Gone ahead and made English default across all sites. The option to change the language is now the users choice.

Added :wink:

Will definately look into this as an option moving forward.

With Stripe, you would have had a better conversion rate therefore the final bill would have been slightly less.

Sure, your default currency can be changed back to GBP at time by opening a ticket.

CentOS is simply my choice of preference :disappointed_relieved: apologies for not taking into account your specification for debian.
Our Debian 10 template has a bug. So, unless you are comfortable managing your VPS via VNC (SSH will not work), you might want to steer clear of that template (for now).

not so bad for a cheapish VM like that, with shared ressources :wink:

will check again after BF and decide if it’s going to be a long time idler. I guess I can switch to the discounted yearly pirce at any time later, right?


Sorry, I missed the question at the end. Yes, that would be possible.
