Apple today announced that App Store prices are set to rise in a number of nations all over the world because of taxes or adjustments in foreign exchange charges.
App and in-app purchase pricing are ready to increase in Brazil, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Russia, and South Africa within the next few days.
Apple says the pricing reflects a new equalization levy of 2 % in India and a new value-added tax of 10 % in Indonesia for developers based outside of Indonesia.
Pricing on apps and in-app purchases is also set to be adjusted in Iceland and Albania to align with pricing used in other markets selling in U.S. dollars with value-added tax. An up to date pricing chart is out there on Apple’s web site. [PDF]
