V3 Pricing

Pricing structure

We're very pleased that X-Particles has been a commercial success, but with that success comes the need to make changes to our pricing structure. These will come into effect on November 10th 2014. In summary, we are switching to UK sterling (£) as the currency used for purchases, and we must now add VAT for all purchases from within the European Union. The actual prices will be very similar (with allowance for fluctuations in exchange rates).

For full details, please see the new pricing structure page.
