Buying linari.

Tue May 08, 2018 11:28 pm

Why the cost of the 99$ linari bundle costs me 105 EUR which is 127$ ?? this is not fair for me as European player. , and i wonder how the difference would increase between me and a chinese player

Because this is a business and customers consider us idiots.

Paying money is not a problem ... the problem is that trade is not fair.

Purchases in EUR are subject to sales tax (Value Added Tax) due to EU laws.
Purchases in USD are not since in the US, there are different sales tax levels per state. Most companies are usually "based" on a state that has no sales tax at all.
This is not a Lilith issue, it's a google play (or itunes) issue.
The same thing happens with steam for example where a game can be 60$ but 60 or even 70 euros.

Taxes? Google performs billing in countries of the European Union with little pressure or no fiscal pressure (Ireland or Holland). Google only pays 1% in taxes.

Ireland VAT is 23%, Holland is 21%.
Corporate income (profit) tax is something completely different.
I'm not saying it's fair, just stating why it's happening.

Google does not pay where the added value of the product is created. If you reside in France and buy a product that in turn is the purchase of another product, google pays taxes in the countries of the European Union where they pay less taxes (Ireland, Holland, Luxembourg, Malta).

There is a lot of financial engineering. If in the Netherlands 21% is paid in taxes and in Ireland 23%, the price of the product would not be the same for an Irish and a Dutch.

There is no financial engineering about VAT, what you are thinking of is tax avoidance regarding corporate tax.
When you state you live in any european country and pay in euros you are "invoiced" in Ireland (Dublin) by Google Commerce Limited.
For example, the patron cost is 5.49euros and includes 1.06euros VAT. That is clearly stated on the Google Play receipt.
Feel free to check your mails from google play if you've kept them

Not having free education, public health, public infrastructure, a social welfare model....

You can talk to your government and tell them to eliminate taxes because you want to have jaq at level 50.
