In talking with some of my alliance mates and comparing prices for the things in store, the pricing seems very odd (I know this is nothing new). Take the $99.99 (USD) for 15,000 HC. It’s £105 (GBP) which at the current exchange rate a la Google is about $135. In Norway, that offer is kr 1199,00 which is roughly $131. In The Netherlands it’s 109,99 euros, about $123 (I’m not sure if this is the across-the-board price in euros or if it varies by country). And in Russia it’s rub 8490, about $134. Even accounting for the possible addition of VAT, which should be about 20 - 25% for these four countries as far as I understand it, these numbers don’t make sense. (And does VAT exist for virtual things?)
I’d be curious for others from around the world to comment with their prices too.
Am I just missing something here? Or do the prices Ludia is charging in different countries simply not equate? Obviously exchange rates fluctuate constantly, but these are all significantly higher. (Disclaimer: I am nowhere near a financial expert; this is why I’m wondering if I’m just missing something - additional taxes? - or if this really just doesn’t jive.)
