No regional pricing despite using Ccbill.

That's right dear fellow PU's -especially my fellow europeans compadres for obvious reasons-. They are charging 63 or 66 euros -if i remember correctly the former-, [the reviewer stops to satisfy his obssesive impulses and goes again to the site to see if 66 is the right amount, and...it is 66 euros not 63!]so that puts to rest the association of Ccbill with suspicious billing practices... It's the websites! Khan, was right from the start.

Capn (28) Yes, it is the Webmanagers who ask CCBill for the 'service.'

No other billing company, that I am aware of, provides this questionable service.

It is a bit like a hitman blaming the person that puts out the contract.

Nicely put Capn. You're right and i'm wrong. In all my porn travels i have yet to meet another biller that has implemented regional pricing -an euphemism for looting-.

One of the advantages of regional pricings are that the prices are fixed.

If a site is 30 euros/month, in Dollars one month it's $45, next month $47, next month $40, next month $50. I'm sure that fluctuation pisses off a whole other set of subscribers too - "Why am I being forced to pay $50 when last month it was $40???!!!"

Regional pricings are not inherently evil, it's just a tool for the site owner to use at his own discretion. It's not "an euphemism for looting".

I couldn't disagree more. There are plenty of sites which have never put into practice regional pricing -which is an euphemism for looting- and haven't gone under. I've never been charged the same amonunt of euros by the bangbros network and i've never got my panties in a wad because of that.

Where did I say that everyone who gets charged fluctuating prices complains? Where did I say that all sites which don't use regional prices go under?

"Regional pricing" is not an euphemism for looting. It's all in what the website decides. CCBill allows for different charges for U.S. versus European users, a site could set up, say 25 euros for European residents, and $35 for U.S. residents, and some do. That is regional pricing, it is close to fair enough for everyone, CCBill allows it, it's the website's choice to make use of it or not.

There are advantages to regional pricing, it is just up to the site owner to use his own judgment of what he wants to do.

Regional pricing also lets sites do other things, like you know how in stores someone is more likely to buy something that is 99 cents versus $1. Same thing with sites at $29.99 versus a conversion rate of say $30.27 or $29.61.


Not to mention every time I buy a subscription through ccbill that is charged in Euros I get hit with an additional fee from my credit card company for a purchase in a foreign currency, that does not exist when subscribing to sites through ccbill that do use Regional Pricing.

So if the shoe were on the other foot, you would not feel hard done by if you were charged about 40% more than someone accessing the same content just because you happened to live in another country?

I don't think you're ever going to get anyone in Europe to agree that regional pricing is a good thing. Of course if a site is priced in Euros anybody joining from the US is going to love regional pricing because they will be saving $$$. What annoys me more is the blatant false advertising, I recently went to join Querro where on the home page they advertise "sign up now for $19.95" but when i click on join from the UK the price changes to around $24...just a blatant con in my opinion so needless to say i didn't bother.

It happens a lot regrettably.
