Thanks for the price update, chandra. By the way, should we expect a summer sale to happen pretty soon on GOG? =3

Summer sale soon! Yes!
Looks like we have a pretty nice summer sale but I can't seem to buy anything. Is anyone else having this issue? I even tried to add funds to my wallet and it was still a no go.

Please make sure you are not doing the following:

> Purchasing a DLC of which you don't own the basegame on GOG.COM
> Buying a game which you already own

Should none of these apply then please contact us via this form =)

I already did but was told it would take two weeks :( I will again. I am trying to buy games I don't own and the DLCs are for the game(s) in the cart. All I get is Something went wrong, ... payment status could not be verified due to temporary technical issues. This is the same card I always use and I have gotten all my games from gog on this same card. It might also be good to say, that I have gone from issues here on gog to buying games on steam and I haven't had any issues at all on steam. (New ID# 651702)
I can't speak for other regions, but Australians should seriously consider doing their purchases in USD.for this sale.

The AUD has strengthened remarkably since the last price readjustment, so any USD transactions have a more favourable exchange rate.

For my purchases that cleared today, it was worth an additional 6% discount.

Can just compare the GOG rates going from the $9.99 ones to the current real ones.

GOG rates: $1 = 0.92 EUR = 0.82 GBP = 1.53 AUD = 73 RUB = 4.17 PLN = 9.68 SEK = 9.99 NOK = 6.82 DKK = 0.98 CHF = 1.40 CAD = 5.72 BRL = 7.11 CNY

Now googling the current real rates I see: $1 = 0.89 EUR = 0.79 GBP = 1.44 AUD = 68.52 RUB = 3.92 PLN = 9.21 SEK = 9.32 NOK = 6.60 DKK = 0.96 CHF = 1.34 CAD = 5.01 BRL = 7.09 CNY

So, GOG rate is worse than the real rate at the moment by: 3.37% for EUR, 3.80% for GBP, 6.25% for AUD, 6.54% for RUB, 6.38% for PLN, 5.10% for SEK, 7.19% for NOK, 3.33% for DKK, 2.08% for CHF, 4.48% for CAD, 14.17% for BRL, 0.28% for CNY

If people may be looking at a ~2% conversion fee when paying in a different currency, from China it'll be better to pay in local and from Switzerland it'll only be a tiny bit worse, but for the rest it's bad, and especially for Brazil.

GOG.com: We are slightly adjusting local pricing due to changes in currency exchange rates.

Due to recent significant changes in currency conversion rates, we need to re-evaluate and update the local price values for the products on GOG.com. When preparing for the launch of our local currency payment options we've monitored the conversion rates for 18 months, looking at the average, and rounding it to the closest 0.09. That's how we came up with - for example - the 4.49€ equivalent for the $5.99 price-tag (with 4.51€ being the average converted price out of the previous 18 months). With fairness and clarity in mind, we decided to stick to the prices calculated this way, and only update them if a really considerable change in currency exchange rates would occur.

Unfortunately, this happened much sooner than anyone would expect. There are evident changes in the conversion rates for almost all currencies used on GOG.com. Therefore, we are forced to adjust some of the local-currency prices of the GOG.com catalog items.The prices are changing only by a small margin that allows us to compensate for the recent shifts in currency exchange rates. Here's a representative example of the pricing changes:

For $9,99 games:
- the EUR price was: 7,49; is: 7,99
- the GBP price was: 5,99; is: 6,19
- the AUD price was: 10,89; is: 11,49
- the RUB price was: 359; is: 389

The changes will come into effect on Wednesday, October 1 at 12:00PM GMT. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may be causing you. Please remember that you have the option to switch your preferred currency back to USD in the site's footer.

We will continue to monitor the exchange rates and apply further updates. Hopefully, we'll see the rates reverting to their more beneficial state soon, so that the next small price update can be in everyone's favor. We will communicate any future adjustments in the forum thread for this topic, so please follow it if you're interested in the future development for local prices.
That's actually pretty good and we can still pay in US prices and do the conversions on our end.
