Us English players get rinsed in the store.

We get charged GBP in the store whilst other players pay the same amount but in another currency (EUR/ USD etc)...given GBP is worth more than any other currency us English players are getting a seriously bad deal, we are effectively paying 15% more than our European neighbours...and probably 35% more than US players given the current exchange rates...

Is there a way to pay in other currencies? I have a multi currency card that is much more efficient that paying in GBP...or can CG PLEASE take the currency exchange into account!!!!!!!!

Thanks

  • Mate, Here in Australia, our prices are in Australian dollars, only we pay about 40% more. I have a US bank account and at times have changed my google payment method and paid in in USD and then the prices drop down to more reasonable amounts. If on android, go to payments.google and wallet.google.

    This American has never heard the word "rinsed" used in this manner but getting clean seems like a good thing.

    It is very simple, iPhone xr starts at $799 in usa
    In UK it starts at 799 GBP

    But you can have someone buy it in usa and bring it to you for $799
  • That's what happens when you have a bunch of extra taxes on stuff.
  • I should probably add that depending on which state in USA you buy the phone, state tax will be added, % varies, from 0 to 10% depending on state.
    So could be $879

    going to need a VPN to change the address to a US address because google uses IP address to determine location. I've had so much rubbish with VPN apps, is there a reliable one you know of?

  • This has been covered before there’s nothing that can be done because of a variety of reasons—VAT, conversion rates, etc.

    I would advise caution before doing this. I've heard of accounts being banned for manipulating which store crystals are bought from.
