WinCustomize Subscription - False promise !!

Thursday, June 17, 2021 by cissou3554 | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Why always pay more despite an annual subscription at 20% discount promised on Master Skins? Say it to me... 

For exemple, this skin ("Old Style" by don5318), costs me $ 6.61 and not $ 4.76 ($ 5.95 - 20%) !!

Thank you for your explanation...

That would be because your country, France, is charging an excise tax now,

As LightStar mentioned, the payment system will add any taxes and such to your region.

Many thanks for all your answers. "French" taxes are always heavier year after year. For me, the price of a skin has become too expensive on "WinCustomize".

In the future, I will buy elsewhere where there are no taxes (ex: It's sad because you (skinners) are also doing a good job. Cordially...

I wonder if you can buy via paypal. I don't think paypal has any taxes. But there is some charges from paypal and on Currency exchange. Not sure if it worth it.

Thank you,

An "excise tax" on the quantity consumed + One on the added value "VAT" + Another "profit margin" of the site. It's way too much! I know that my message will not change "nothing" here, but I prefer, as already said, to pay elsewhere ( and ( > 3 skins purchased> only 2 paid) without all these taxes. Thank you and goodbye WinCustomize ..
