Pricing

Hello,
How do I know the pricing method for each country, and how do we distinguish that the price of 1 $, for example, is suitable for other countries, and that it is very expensive or not?
Thanks :blush:

There is a thing called the Big Mac index. It is based on what a McDonalds’ Big Mac costs in a particular country compared to the USA. So say a Big Mac is $5 in the US and the equivalent of $3 in Thailand that is how you’d price things. that is Thailand would be 3/5ths of the US price.

Having said that this does not hold entirely true for things like Mobile especially higher end mobiles like Samsung Galaxy S, Flip, Fold models as they are more a luxury or used to make a status statement.

The best pricing from testing Developer Relations did is to make the price relevant to the country that is one Dollar in US and one Euro in the EU and 30 Thai Bahts . Tailoring those may however not be useful as the work involved in setting prices for every county other a few larger ones would be less than you would ever earn.

Hello Ron,
how are you :blush::blush:
In my country jordan 1 $ = 0.70 I think the price is right
I always set the price to auto. Is that ok?

Thank you

Yes that is OK for most countries they are used to “American” prices I think I’d only change it if it is my locality or the EU as that is a major market.
So if you set it to 1 dinar it actually may sell better in Jordan some buyers would understand your a a local designer that way.

By the way look at Galaxy store prices. You should set your price based on what a similar App sells for $1 is the minimum price you can charge for a Theme in the US.

Also, some countries have minimum pricing… For example, even if you put 85c as the price and apply that price to all countries, in the U.S. the minimum price is 99c. I forget the other countries that have minimum pricing sorry.

And I just want to take a chance to remind about my request for price importing feature :pray:t2: Just like we already have with the app information.
Or maybe anyone knows where I can send my suggestion directly?

I think you will need to submit this the the Premier Support. They are supposed to handle bugs and feature request for everything regarding themes.

Having said that, if that got you nowhere I will ask the US Store’s operation team to contact if they can take this.

I would not waste your time with PSS… I opened a ticket last October and still have not received a response. The ticket was nothing major and I just update it every now and then with “crickets” LOL.

Thanks, I will do it, but they are extremely slow to respond. Last time I sent them a complaint on Remote Test Lab issue (same one that is discussed here in the adjacent topic) on December 11th, and they replied me only today, 40 days later :smirk:
But well, let’s see if they will be faster this time.

I know, just told it to Ron above. It’s not a reliable team. Apart from the delayed replies sometimes they don’t reply at all. Once I repeated my non-responded request directly by email and still nothing… Since 2021 or so, lol! :woman_facepalming:
