Ahh yes,This is not an answer as such, but I would send them an email.I sent Filemaker an email today to this effect:I would like to say first, that I have been running a Filemaker solution, in my practice, since version 5.I live and work in Australia, and wish to upgrade my FileMakerPro 10 Advanced license to Filemaker Pro 11 Advanced. I am happy to download, so I jumped on your US website from Google. I noticed that the US price for this is US$299, but it would not happily take an Australian address. So I went to the Australian portal, where the price is AU$450 (US$411 at todays rates).I was prepared to see a small difference, but that is a whopping 27% increase! Now I could understand a large difference if I was buying a box, travel/handling expenses being what they are, but for download?? I don't think so. I thought to check another portal, so I had a look at the UK site £197 (US$300).Then I called customer support in Australia, and was told that the US price was recently reduced, however there is no plan apparent to do the same for us Aussies.So I want to know whether you will let me buy from the US store, or if you will take a look at the exchange rates and adjust the Australian price, as you have clearly done for the UK. Because $110 is significant money, whether it is in US or Aussie dollars.
Either that, or maybe it is time for me to start a store on Ebay and take advantage of the price differential.
In my opinion they really need to drop the price, however they might hold a different opinion.
