New currencies coming to the Steam store

I know this is rather old news but I don’t have much time to post here. I can’t believe this is finally happening… after 9 fucking years (!) Steam introduces more currencies to the Steam store. Details below!

This is an e-mail to all Steamworks developers from Valve Software – New currencies to expect on Steam:

“Pricing should be entered as soon as possible, with display of these new currencies scheduled to go live in time for our 2017 Autumn and Winter Sales. To enter pricing, sign in to the Steamworks Developer Site and select Pricing from the Apps & Packages drop-down. You will see green-colored recommendations filled in for new currencies, based on your selected USD base price. These recommended prices can be accepted or adjusted at your discretion. As a reminder, if you do not have pricing entered for a country after a local currency is set live on the Steam storefront, your game will be unavailable for sale in that country.”

“We have also updated our recommended pricing matrix for new and existing currencies. Our goal is to update these recommendations annually, so as to better help developers succeed in markets worldwide. Pricing decisions on Steam are entirely in the hands of you the developer, and we encourage you to always do what’s best for your players. You can find more information and suggested best practices in the Steamworks Pricing Documentation.”

“*PLN pricing is specific to Poland, but as always any game licenses purchased within an EEA country (either directly or as a gift) can be redeemed by any user within the EEA.”

“0,99 euro – 3,59 zł
1,99 euro – 7,19 zł
2,99 euro – 10,99 zł
3,99 euro – 14,49 zł
4,99 euro – 17,99 zł
5,99 euro – 21,99 zł
6,99 euro – 25,49 zł
7,99 euro – 28,99 zł
8,99 euro – 32,99 zł
9,99 euro – 35,99 zł
14,99 euro – 53,99 zł
19,99 euro – 71,99 zł
22,99 euro – 89,99 zł
27,99 euro – 107,99 zł”

Which means Poland is no longer getting fucked on Steam.

    “we will end up with 90% of steam games unavailable for purchase for months to come. :-/”
    I don’t think so…

    they will either leave the automatic conversion on (lazy) or make the price higher.

    “I was happy with global prices, back in the time when steam had only $ and the same price for everybody in the world. That was the only time it was fair for everybody.”

    yes because back then the exchange rate was amazing (even below 2zł for $1) but at the moment it wouldn’t be really any different from €/zł conversion.

    Not fucked? Do you realize what this means? “if you do not have pricing entered for a country after a local currency is set live on the Steam storefront, your game will be unavailable for sale in that country” – nobody cares about sales in PL (cause they are so low), we will end up with 90% of steam games unavailable for purchase for months to come. :-/

    I don’t know the conversion rate, but I’ll assume it is favorable for polacks – does it mean a polish friend could buy a game for cheap and gift it to me – who use €?
