# 1 C-Store Currency Rates USD/EUR
10-26-2011, 01:21 AM
Hi,

I live in europe

Long time ago I bought a ship in the Cstore and could pay in Dollars (1eur were 1,4 dollars back then)
and as I remember I got 100CP for one Dollar

So now I have to pay 1,2eur for 100CP (20%VAT, and again eur/dollar is 1,4 ^^)
so that would mean ~1,7 Dollar for 100CP

Is that the same scam as on steam ?

Or has every American customer to pay 34$ for a 2.000cp Ship ???

or do Americans pay 20$ and just all EU countries are scammed ?
(70% increased prices)

It is not Cryptics fault that you live in Europe and must charge the Banks with extra money for change Euro -> Dollar and pay VAT in your Country.

what what what

even with VAT excluded its 28$ for a 2.000cp Ship !

Cryptics set their exchange from USD/EUR at 1:1
even when its 1.4:1 at the Bank
And not letting Europeans pay with Dollar.

That means as European you pay still 40% more.

Isn't that a self contradiction, as USA means United States of America as in the continent of America?

Pay via paypal, cryptic submits them USD values and you'll get the correct exchange rates. VAT will however still be added, but with around 1,4 USD per EUR your still paying less than otherwise.

I live in NZ and my C-Store charges go up and down with the exchange rate. It's never fixed.

the CP exchange rate is actually 80cp to the Dollar, the same as Microsoft Points.
