Hey guys! I would like to get into Alpha. And I will gladly pay for it. But here is the deal.

 

I live in EU so whenever I visit the ArcheAge website I get directed to the Europe version of the site, and the shop prompts me with the price in Euros. But I will save almost $30 if I buy from the US shop!

 

The question is: Will it work? Has anyone else done this?

 

I was planning on using a VPN to get to the US shop, add my payment method and pay for the game, and download the game, and play it. Will it work as if I did this from the EU shop?

 

US shop: $ 149.99 = € 108.62

EU shop: € 134.99 = $ 186.41

 

So I will save € 26,37 which is quite some money in my currency!

 

 

Thanks!

I am sure there is a way. If I remember correctly maybe paypal will solve that. There are probably plenty of articles explaining how to do that if you look for it properly

I'm from the UK, and I get directed to the US Shop since I set my country as NA in the Trion Profile Settings, try that and see if that works. ^-^
