IP Detection for Currency Content Delivery

As many of you know, there is no fine line when it comes to what is acceptable IP Delivery and what is not. Google clearly states in its Quality Guidelines, "Don't employ cloaking or sneaky redirects." But Google, "cloaks" or uses IP delivery methods themselves. I have a whole category at this site devoted to Cloaking & IP Delivery, and you will find that even Google Banned Itself for Cloaking. But is there acceptable cloaking?

Of course. One such case of acceptable cloaking is found in a brand new, and really quick thread at WebmasterWorld named Display Currency Prices Depending On IP Address. The member simply asked,

A client of mine wants me to set up his site, so that if the ip address comes from America, then all prices should be in US dollars. From the UK, pounds, and Europe etc ... Is this going to cause a problem with google?

And Brett Tabke simply answered. "No."
