You know at the start of the year, 1 January 2020, the exchange rate was just 1 USD to 4 BRL, if you go by that, then it will be 400 BRL for 10k WPE (pre corona rates).
If you look from 2015 to end of 2019, you can see that the rates fluctuates between 3-4 BRL per 1 usd. (Just go google usd to brl)
So if 10k wpe will cost 400 brl, that would be $76.47 instead of the crazy $50 that they were previously. Yeah there are still that 24% ish that they can manipulate but It wont be as outrageous as it is right now.
It jump from 4.16 BRL to 5.59 during this pandemic.
To those brazillian players, if WPE disable gifting for Brazillians (If thats an option), it means both gifting and reloading the gift card.
Will you guys be fine not buying WPE from other players? (I don't think they ever need to think of this cause them buying directly from WP is the cheapest it has been so far).
But going forward, this is something to think about.
But an honest question, can those of us from SEA also get this regional pricing? I remember it was due to payment partners and stuffs. We have those exclusive to those regions, so can WP consider that too?
Our wages here aren't that good either you know. Minimum wage here is 5.57 atm, we also need to work 5 hours to get 500 wpe.
Thai daily minimum wage is 300 THB a day and its 8 hours work, that translates to about $8.5 a day or $1.07 per hour, they have to work 4.67 hours for 500 wpe. (Source from a friend, if its wrong please correct me)
Come on Indonesians and Philliphines, add some data here! Sorry SG, you guys have better exchange rate.
