  • Europeans have unfair advantage in Steam Market

    I live in Canada and have a hard limit of around $200 in my steam wallet, however there are Europeans whom are able to list items as high as $300 because of currency conversion. Please either limit them or increase the maximal sales point on steam market for us outside Europe :/

    See this for example: http://steamcommunity.com/market/lis...0the%20Smeevil - selling for $297.56 USD

    I agree. If you are going to limit something limit it across all currency.

      and I thought 35$ for Fiery Soul are much.....

      fucking hell why would you waste 200$ on anything in the steam market? o.O

        There are always people willing to pay for the stuff. I agree that the limit should be the same for everyone, otherwise remove the limit completely.
        I don't think that is the right place to discuss this though. You should try writing Steam Support.

          Maybe this is a hint that you should move away from Canada.

            Are you just an asshole in your spare time or what?

            This is inconsistent across regions and should be looked at, +1

              my guess would be that this has something to do with the laws in your country.

                Not so much laws, but different tax's are what seems to be the cause of increased prices in some places compared to others

                  I agree this is completely fucking bullshit. I saw a smeevil tournament for 240 dollars i was pressing buy 100 fucking times and it wont let me saying the limit is 200. Wtf Why does valve fucking care how much i spend I am using 200 steam wallet and adding the rest with paypal why the fuck wont it let me. I seen at least 16 deals go by and the buyer is always europe. They get to sell high and buy high while every other country cant even compete in the market.

                    What I'm about to say may seem childish, but no more than what has already been posted in this thread.

                    It's payback for the $ = € conversion that a lot of publishers have adopted in recent years on various platforms.

                      You get games for $20 while we pay €20 - suck it up.
                      Of course this is sarcastic, prices and amounts should be the same regardless of currency.
