Price hike for those in the Uk - maybe Europe

In the past week I've noticed a price hike in offers if you buy in game. I am on android & switched from google play to samsung store because you save considerably more
What was £17.99 is now £20. I don't know if the same has happened on facebook as I do not have access to my laptop - maybe someone can fill me in on that

Why has this happened? Is it to do with the addition of the webstore? It will definitely stop me from buying offers that I would have in the past, particularly DYCs
You can't blame the rise in food & petrol on this one

    No price has been changed on our end.
    This is likely due to exchange rate and platform fees/taxes.

    You know, with the increased cost of raw materials and the higher transportation costs...

    ...never mind.

    It was a fixed price, I doubt the google play store price(which is the same as the webstore ) has changed because of exchange rate
    You just paid less because of what currency you paid in to start with

    The price is only fixed in USD.
    If you could give more info on the specific item that would help. Thanks!
    With screenshots if possible.

  • I use Google play and the prices are still the same. No price increase.

    AmazonFire has increased € prices as well by around 19%.

    I think they did not rais prices but now they correctly show you the taxes according to some EU regulations. All of you have much cheper offer than me.

    Quantum pass is €5,49 (£4,50) from day 1 on Steam and €5,76 (£4.72 ) on iOS for me, and all other prices are way higher than in US or UK

    I did the math, it’s not taxes for me.

    Country Tax has always been displayed on my amazon receipts. Can only speak for Germany though. I think they just asjusted prices because of the weak € compared to USD.
