FALSE DOLLAR TO EURO CONVERSION

29,99 DOLLAR a month that is advertised should not be 39 euro that I would have to pay a month. The conversion from DOLLAR to EURO is totally WRONG and should be 26,82 EURO. Without giving a valid reason this should not be accepted. I canceled my subscription because of it.

Hello, Are you aware that in the US the sales tax is not included in the advertised price, but is added later, whereas in the Euro Zone it is included in the sale price. This would account for the price difference.

Come on, pay your taxes...as everybody (except the fraudsters...)

 

It's a service and VAT needs also to be paid for services. And if you buy a license for a picture, the picture is the product. 

 

And America has also sales taxes, but it is handled differently. But mainly: Adobe is obligated to invoice you the taxes as they do also for Australia (even that Australia is served from Ireland, if I'm well informed).

Did you consider taxes? Generally, American prices are without taxes as it is custom in America. European prices are with taxes as required by law. The remaining difference is just Adobe‘s freedom to fix prices freely. In this case for simplification, there is a fixed exchange rate of 1 to 1, what is currently a small disadvantage for Europe.

That is what I hated the most when I was in new york. nothing is as advertised. America should really include those taxes in the future so that everyone knows how much they have to pay. It would make a much happier and honest society. (but that's just my opinion)

Maybe have a read of this!

Each state has a different sales tax rate, therefore Adobe quoting the base price. However, depending on which state you live in depends on the final sales tax rate, and therefore the final price. In Europe. UK, Australia, NZ etc, the sales tax is included.
