Greedy Stardoll?

I was just going through Superstar Giftcards and found something unfair. 
I find it ironic that there is a price difference. Why do I (a person from Australia) have to pay more than someone from the USA? 

The Australian Dollar is currently trading 1.00036 US cents so the Giftcard price should be lowered for Australian's.

But why is the price so high? Simple - Stardoll is greedy.

What do you think of the prices?
Do you think it is fair?
Do you think Stardoll is greedy?

I think its a waste of money to become superstar. i'm happy being a non-ss but i do agree that the gift card price should be lowered.

USA:
6 months- $35.70
12 months- $59.40

AUS:
6 months- $47.70
12 months- $71.40

So that means aussies have to pay an extra $12.00 for a 6months giftcard and an extra $12.00 for a 12months giftcard. That's a rip off considering that the aussie dollar is worth more than the usa one.

I agree with the posts above.
I also think that Australia should have the prepaid gift cards available at other stores too like the USA because it's much easier that way.

You have to take into account the fact that Australian currency is different to American currency. It's the same amount but the American dollar is worth more than the Australian dollar. It's all about exchange rates etc etc

In short, stardoll isn't scamming anyone. It's just a difference in currencies.

That's the reason why I don't buy SS anymore!

It's not the fact that Stardoll is greedy. You have to know that transfering the money to American costs money, the workers who transfer the money charges fees. It's not a scam. Just like when you go to ATM's you are charged a fee if you want to withdraw money. And like "spider" said American money is worth more than Australian. You also have to consider the demand of being a Superstar.

it's because there is a currency difference, so really they cost the same!

thet DONT cost the same cause the AUD is now parity with the USD. there is no currency difference at the moment. its the same with itunes, and is indeed a massive rip off.
