Agreed, if they are going to do this then we need the option to price the app higher for the affected countries. If they decide that the price includes taxes, developers should decide the base price based on the tax they are losing out on.

They are already charging them higher. 0.99 Euro in EU and 0.99 Pounds in UK compared to 0.99 USD in rest of the world. However, I am not sure if this higher charge is due to tax reasons or not..

Re: European sales tax, Bango

Maybe in some markets, maybe it depends on price of the app see this again

 

Operator Bill NLD Vodafone GIG (RIM) 1.92 0.00 0.00 1.92 19.0 70.00 1.61 1.13 1.90 0.02 1.11

 


My app costs $1.99 USD, see the $1.92 is what the actual value of this sale was in USD. See the other persons post earlier. That means this sale was 1.5 euros converted to USD is $1.92 and then less 70% less 19% again is now $1.11 USD for a sale of an app that should be $1.99 less 70%.

This is valid only for UK, prices for EU were adjusted several months ago and now EU customers enjoy 0.75 Euro price for $0.99 (if you click on View currencies next to any product description in Vendor portal you will see it)
