    --Hello,

    We develop mobile applications for both iOS as Android.
    We would like to know how it goes for purchases in multilingual Apps.

    For example, I market an application that costs € 1 to the Europe ...
    How it will be for other countries? For example in England, Canada,
    USA, Qatar, Pakistan, India etc ... In one hand knowing that my visual presentation there will be the price as you can see here:

    In the other hand we want to know if it is possible to set the price of our apps depending to countries and the purchasing power of the citizens of that country or is there in other process?

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I believe that in-app purchases behave in the same way as app purchases.

    If so, then it's not possible to have different pricing for different countries. On the Mac App Store, you set app prices by 'Tier'. For example, there's Tier 1, Tier 2 etc. At the time of writing, Tier 1 equates to £0.79, Tier 2 equates to £1.49. How that relates to other currencies is Apple's call. It's more or less a straight conversion into the appropriate currency for other markets, although there is some variance which I guess is probably down to local taxes and other financial necessities.

    Hope that's of some help, and I applaud your idea of charging less where people can afford less!

    Definitely fishy, odd choice of skype name and MR username if they aren't app developers...perhaps a crude attempt to penetrate the app store app safetynet...must go, my Nigerian Uncle has just called about some lost $$$...

    Oh! I appear to have a Nigerian uncle with a similar problem. We must be related. ;-)
