The price is horrible. I pay $50 USD for a little less than what you get. $200 AUD ($205 USD) is cringe worthy.
How exactly do you charge more for digital content based on location?
One can always change their location with a proxy or VPN if you already have one.
Not a lot of people will do that, but my point is how can location ever be verified?
They can look at the payment method location but that would be after the payment was made and the price can't change after that.
A worthless shipping address can be faked since nothing is being shipped.
You can tell where someone is globally based on their IP address. Address ranges will be reserved by providers at the backbone and used in geographic locations, then they spread out the users onto subnets. Or simply put, certain ranges = certain geographic areas / countries.
Ninja edit there, but additionally I would be interested to see if the proxy would change the price. It really depends on which IP address they pick up at the server. I VPN and RDP into my work system from my home computer, and many of the applications will actually pick up my home system information, not my work system.
It probably isn't verified, but the number of users caught in the trap would be quite high percentage wise, because of the technical know-how to accomplish a fix, if it worked.Edited by Avonosac - 2/28/13 at 9:33am
