The below quotes and grumbles are not directed at Lit&Latte, more so at the Apple Money Machinations Regime.
Canadian price started at $27.99.
$19.99 USD (tier 20) currently equals $26.07 CDN for an approximate real world vat fee of $1.92 CDN.
That $1.92 CDN is equivalent to 7% vat fee padding.
Of course this is before taxes themselves of which where I am located is an additional 13%.
Australian price started at $30.99
$19.99 USD (tier 20) currently equals $26.69 AUD for an approximate vat fee of $4.30 AUD
That $4.30 AUD is equivalent to 13.8% vat fee padding.
What I find strange is, for an app that should be $.99 and has become effective $1.39, that's a vat fee of 40 cents. Or a 29% vat fee. More than twice my government taxes me at 13%. But again, I still need to pay the taxes on top of everything.
Alas, it is what it is, grumble.
Supply and Demand.
Lit&Latte supplied Scrivener for iOS and I demanded they take my money
