Prices for countries in Eastern Europe are pretty messed up in my opinion
Now, this is right after regional prices for Europe came out. Most countries are now set to 3.99 EUR, despite countries in Eastern Europe (especially countries in the Balkans), having 3-6 times less income than nations in western Europe.
Just for a bit of comparison (data is from google)
Bulgaria - Average monthly wage = 595€
Serbia - Average monthly wage = 562€
Romania - Average monthly wage = 743€
France - Average monthly wage = 2,225€
Belgium - Average monthly wage = 2,262€
The Netherlands - Average monthly wage = 2,240€
I understand it may feel ****** to people living in wealthier countries to pay more, however like I already showed above, the money made in different countries isn't even in the same atmosphere. I would ask for Twitch to either rethink the prices for Eastern European countries.
This is also true when you compare Belgium and Portugal, for example. Belgium has at least double the minimum wage.
Minimum wage in Portugal sits at 665€ (https://www.pordata.pt/Portugal/Salário+mínimo+nacional-74-7892)
So for us to be paying the same amount seems extremely unfair.
There is a reason why it's so rare for my friends and I to subscribe to American services. The whole 'cheaper than a coffee' motto you frequently see sounds completely ridiculous to us when you consider our expresso coffee costs 0.60€
Poland = 1241€ with tax (883€ without tax) Average - so 3.99 for sub its ********
Agree with @blackdani95, the person that calculated that changing currency from USD to EUR is fine should get fired imo. Here in Poland we don't use EUR as main currency its PLN, so from 4.99 USD which is around 20PLN now we need to pay around 24PLN, so its like +20% more to pay for sub on Twitch now. This is just ridiculous, and you advertise as "lower price"...
This need to be FIX ASAP!
You made it from 4.99 USD to 4.99 EUR - I don't know who did the math, but advertising it as lower just adds insult to injury. We're already a poor enough country as it is, you will only lose money because of this decision. I'm going to cancel my Prime subscription and I'll never spend another cent on this platform because of this slap to the face.
