Different AppWorld prices for the same app in WebBrowser and through BB AppWorld

I see the different prices in WebBrowser on my mac and through my BB device. For example Piano for kids costs 0.99$  in web browsers, and the same app through BB 9780 costs only 0.75$.

 

But then I try to buy it through BB (app for 0.75$) - and got a error! - I done battery pull, restart, and the result is the same - I can't purchase via BB device - no one app! So I connect it to Mac Book and install through Browser (for 0.99$).

 

Help me with this issue please.

I don't know yet, trying to find an explanation.
Is your Paypal account a USD account?
is your SIM card from a Russian operator?

Paypal use USD as payment currency, and I do not use SIM card yet - I'm trying to configure wifi network first. I need to verify the device and servises quality first to switch to the BlackBerry. Its ability to work without mobile operator over wifi network only.

Re: Different AppWorld prices for the same app in WebBrowser and through BB AppWorld

Here is what I see:
- on my desktop, not logged: the price is USD0.99
- on my fesktop, logged with my French BlackBerryID : EUR0.99 (20% more expensive, as usual)
- on my 8900, logged with the same French BlackBerryID: EUR0.99

so in my opinion, it is consistent with what you see:
when you are not logged in, there is a price.

when you are logged in (with webstore or BlackBerry phone), you have another price.

From USD to EUR, the conversion rate has always been 1:1, which I find outrageous for European consumers, but at least there is a concrete explanation.

from USD to USD in your case, I do not know why this happens.

*****

Here is what I would do if I had the issue:

1) Can you contact the editor (SRID games) and ask them what is the price that is supposed to be applied.

2) you say that there is an error when you try to buy the app using AppWorld on your 9780. Can yu give us the exact error message?

3) (I don't know if it works well) on your Mac, use the browser to buy the app, without tethering the 9780. Once it is done, reboot your 9780, then using the 9780 go in MyWorld and refresh the apps. You should be able to select the Piano app, and install it without paying again.

I find that outrageous too.
