It used to be 4.00 GBP to buy 500 CP.

Now it is 4.50 GBP to buy 500 Zen.

4.00 GBP at the old rate would have bought 625 Zen.

Price has gone up nearly 35%.

What the hell.

I think I have found the problem.

I have checked Steam wallet and the Zen billing page.

Zen billing page lists the price in Euros, but Steam Wallet lists the price in GBP.

However Steam wallet lists the same figure as the Zen billing page, completely not taking into account 1 GBP does not equal 1 Euro.

Please fix this.

Actually the two different currencies have different ratios. It works out to 100 cpoints = 80 zen.

That may be what you;re seeing.

I don't think that's the essence of his problem:

500 CP for 4 GBP -> 625 zen for 4 GBP

If he bought 500 Zen with 4.50 GBP, then there's something wrong there (aka Less Zen for More money, while it should be more zen for the same amount).
