Need AUD Currency to buy pearls :(

18 posts in this topic

Posted

$60 USD = over $80 AUD which way to expensive for Australian/NZ players so wondering when will Kakao add international currency so it be fairer for players to buy costumes with their own currency ?

You think 1 USD  has the value like 1 AUD?

 

Afaik there is no "true" international currency in the whole world. How will a game developer introduce something that's also not manageble by several countries gouvernments?

Corrected me if im wrong boys. xD

1 AUD = 0.76 USD so there is that. so slightly above 80 is right, considering price changes.

Well how about the difference between EU and NA? 

With 100$ you buy the same amount of pearls that you get with 100€, although the euro is ranked higher. 1 usd = 0.93 eur.

We are getting screwed here in EU!

I demand compensation!

if u just "create" a third currency the problem is not solved.

Since for example buyer1 will buy 100 of third currency for 60 USD and buyer2 will buy 100 of third currency for 80 AUD.

The value is still the same. I think OP is just confused by the different numbers..

Might happen if one doesnt know anything about currency exchange rates

You all missed the point. The OP wishes to pay $60 AUD the same way someone in the US pays $60 US. In other words ignore the exchange rate like it doesn't exist and all currency had the same value.

Same. My $30 pearl box is actually a $40 pearl box. I'd be happy with it just saying $40 when I made the purchase.

It would be nice to have an auto currency exchange. I think there was some tax added on as well.

I mean that's just how currency exchange works? If 1000 pearls is 10 usd then since aud is worth less you have to take that into account. While it's weird its not different between usd and euro it's the same as purchasing any international good and there's really no need for them to change it.

I wish they'd do this :/ riot does it with LOL skins, it just straight up said "this costs $20AUD" and there was no stress, no worrying about crazy exchange rates, and no paying $80 for something worth $60. If nothing else they could change the pricing to show how much it costs depending on where you live :(

7.25 USD is the federal min wage. Not sure how you can live on that but whatever.

It is funny seeing Aussies complaining about "losing money" because they pay 80bucks for something instead of 60. 60USD is WORTH 80AUD. 

Europeans are the only ones getting a tiny bit screwed here since 1 USD = 0.93 euros.
