Unit store price increases?!?!

Why did the price of Peter Parker's Wallet go up a dollar? Also the price of the daily crystal went up. What is the purpose of this? @Kabam Miike @Kabam Vydious @Kabam Zibiit

    Hi jlamadison,

    If you don't mind sharing, where are you located? While we do set the initial price of items in game, the prices are subject to change dependent on currency exchange rates, as well as if there are any tax rate/regulation changes in your region.

    The thing is, it cost the same in dollars as it does pounds, but for £10 I can get like $13.50ish.

    So the prices make no sense based on currency values

    Just checked myself. It's $6. Wonder how long it'll take to adjust this if ever. I'm US based as well.

    Hopefully it might mean Australia might comedown in price!

    Also what platform? Apple or android?

    I went to check mine and all the unit offers were gone. I presume this means they are working to address the issue.

    I would like an answer for this as well. I live in the US and the price is clearly $6. It is also $6 on my Google play receipt. If I was incorrectly charged, I would like a refund.

    Are people getting reimbursed? Or was this hoping to not be noticed.

    one guy in my alliance shows $6, the rest all stayed the same at $4.99. All of us are US based. He lives in the same state as a couple other members. Seems this price issue is a bug so I'd just not buy Peter Parkers wallet until you see your price go back down.

    It seemed to be Android vs iTunes in my alliance. Everyone with Android saw the "new" price.

    Love how everything else even says something.99 on everyone of the pricepoints. Yet ur PP of a deal is 6 even? Yeah.... way to go with the silent $1.01 increase. Cause the bugs weren't making u enough $ already.

    Everything in the game cost double the units now and the price increases but the amount you get when purchasing doesn't? We are in the end times boys and girls...

    Hey there everyone, if you are seeing this different price and are comfortable sharing this information, would you mind listing what region (including state) you are located in, as well as what platform you are using? Tax rates and regulations can differ from one state to another, so this info would be helpful.

    I am seeing the $6 pricing. I live in Charleston, SC, USA. Using a Samsung Galaxy S8+.

    Thanks to everyone that has provided specific details so far! We were initially under the impression that this was tied to a change in tax regulations in one state, but we are now investigating a wider issue for Android users on select packages. Jwallace - your receipt screenshot helped, thanks for providing it.

    We will post more updates here as we have them: http://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/66430/regarding-price-discrepancy-for-android-users-on-select-purchases#latest

    Thank you for your patience!

    Happening in more than 1 state. I have US Alliance members in California, Florida, Virginia & Illinois. I live in indiana. It is $6.00 for all of us ATM.

    Also why would a tax increase only effect the $4.99 price and no others?

    New Jersey here and again it's only some deals, not sure what they're playing at but they're starting to get on my nerves.

    It is clearly not a tax related issue, as the OTHER deals all still go for 9.99, 19.99, 49.99, 99.99, etc.

    It's only the 4.99 deals that are now suddenly 6.00.

    Prices are back to normal today after last night's maintenance. Why no explanation from Mods?
