    Adjust Euro prices?

    Hi there,

    so... I just thought about buying myself a token for the time my current subscription runs out, when I remembered something from some time ago: The € prices.

    Why are they the exact same as dollar prices? Right now I would have to pay 35,88€ instead of the actual equal to 35,88$, which would be ROUGHLY around 27,00€. So basically with the 25% discount right now I still pay as much as an American normally would without discount. That's kind of unfair isn't it? So I'm suggesting that you adjust the euro prices.

    I'm also wondering... if a polish guy pays 35,88$, what does he actually pay? Does the bank automatically convert that into the correct amount of zloty?

    Thanks for your help!

    -edit- I am especially irritated because British people get an adjusted price. Still more expensive than it should be, but at least not just 35,88 pounds.

    I believe the EU prices include VAT.

    Allright, I didn't know you'd still have to pay taxes if you order something non-material over the internet. I mean, it's not a THING they import to germany... but what do I know >.>. Still, with our current 19% it would be 32,00€. Thats still a difference of 3,88€. Why this additional fee on top of the stupid VAT?

    Prices are often weird, companies should set one price and then just convert it to other currencies at current exchange rate.

    Look at this example us-uk-pl price: 61.5 eur vs 50 usd ... makes no sense, especially that average salary in Poland is a few times lower.
