No, Helmuti, it is not the same. I have just paid (by mistake, I hope I can get my money back somehow) as a non EU citizen, and I paid 24,95 dollars. On my CC account, it shows the charge of 17,10 euros. Therefore:
24,95 dollars is 17,10 euros.
EU citizens pay 20,50 euros plus 22%VAT.
17,10 euros is not 20,50 euros.
Therefore, EU citizens pay 3,40 euros more than non EU citizens for Pro-lite account. Until Dec. 1st. Why is that?
Why EU citizens do not pay 17,10 euros plus 22% VAT?
3,40 euros is not much, but in a larger scale, it can be important amount of money. For example, new prices, paying more than just Pro-lite, and for more than one year….
Let us calculate a little bit more. Now here are the new prices.
$49.90 (€49.90 incl. VAT) for a year, and a Pro-Plus account now costs $239.90 (€239.00 incl. VAT)
49,90 dollars is 33,55 euros.
33,55 euros plus 22%VAT is 40,93 euros. Not 49,90 euros.
So, here, EU citizen pays for Pro-Lite 9 euros (13,37 dollars) more than non EU citizen.
239.90 dollars is 161.31 euros.
161.31 euros plus 22%VAT is 196,80 euros. Not. 239.90 euros.
So, here, EU citizen pays for Pro+ 43,10 euros (64,07dollars) more than non-EU citizen.
I dare to say that Wikidot should recalculate their prices in euros.
