Why is Filemaker Advance Update in Australia $150 more expensive than in the US? When I last looked our AUD is 1.07 US.
Can you buy direct from the US store. Not only will it be priced more cheaply, you'll be able to take advantage of the stronger dollar.
I think I'd need a US credit card wouldn't I?
Will have to look into it.
Noop. Got to have an american billing address. So it's going to cost me another AUD450 to "upgrade" (which is like buying FMPro all over again) but it would have cost me AUD175 less to buy the full version of Advanced in the first place. Why the huge penalty? I thought FM wanted to encourage people to upgrade to Advanced.
One of the reasons Australian software prices are higher than US prices is that 10% GST is added to Australian prices. But, even then, there's still a big discrepancy.
