Hi everyone. I was just wondering if anyone has info on currency exchange rates for in app purchases through google play store? I have been playing WWE Champions (gem matching/RPG) and have made a couple of purchases in the last few months which were fine when the prices were displayed in £. After the latest update however, all the prices are displayed in $ but the purchases do not go through at anywhere near the exchange rate. For example - this morning I was looking at the items available to purchase in the game and saw one at $49.99. A quick check with XE Currency Converter puts this at around £37 but when clicking through to the Google Play Store to complete the purchase, the price changes to £47.99 which is around $63. I checked a few of the other items to make sure it wasn't a glitch but the same occurs with every one. Does anyone know about the legality of this and if I have any right to purchase at the advertised price on a UK account on a US game? Other players have confirmed to me that the displayed $ price is what they pay in the US so it's not a case of the wrong symbol being displayed on the UK prices. The game's developers are Scopely and Kung Foo Factory. BTW - I did not make the purchase
