New Adwords Account - Which Currency $'s or £'s (UK) ?

Hi all

I am just looking to set up an Adwords account. I am UK based and selling globally - quite a lot of UK sales but also a sufficient amount from overseas so I will run ads targeting a lot of different countries, but maybe with a slight emphasis on the UK.

Will the currency that I set my Adwords account up in have much of an impact on the cost of my ads?

The smallest bid increment in UK £'s is 1p, which is closer to $0.02 than the minimum $0.01 click in a $'s account - not sure that I'll be doing enough volume on such small clicks for that to have a massive impact though!!!

With the exchange rate movements, is there an advantage/disadvantage to setting up in $'s as opposed to £'s??

It is 02:15am here right now and I can't get my head around which would be the best option!

Just wondering if anyone else has any thoughts on this please

Many thanks in advance

    This is just my personal opinion,
    but I would use your own currency.

    That way you will always be clear
    about your advetising cost in your
    own local currency.

    This is just a personal opinion.
    If you think that using US$ will be
    better for you do it.
