So I’m liking this game and contemplating on making ingame purchases. What’s stopping me is the terribly non-competitve pricing you have for other, let’s say, less-rich country than the US or western europe countries.
As my handle suggests, I’m from the philippines. And I did some search for comparative pricing and found out that your US pricing is EXACTLY the same as your PH pricing. Just basically converted for whatever currently is the conversion. i.e. 2300 coins offer is priced at php1438 in PH and 29.99 in US. Same pricing just converted to about 49php per dollar which is around the current conversion.
You do know that $10 in the US buys you 2 starbucks coffee while 10 in the PH buys you 10 starbucks coffee right? Or don't you? From the looks of it, probably not. Steam recognizes such economics. That's why their games are priced lower in regions such as South east asia. For example, Playerunknown battleground sells 30 in steam in the US while in PH and indonesia it sells for $14.60, less than half its US price.
Anyway, this is coming from someone in PH wanting to buy ingame but the highly out of touch pricing ingame makes it very hard for me to do so. $1 in US <> $1 in PH. I can’t imagine anyone from these parts of the world buying anything ingame. My suggestion, if you want to earn from these regions, you need to revise your pricing to be more competitive/more in touch.
