Apple to switch App Store prices from U.S. dollars to regional currencies in 9 countries


Apple will be making the App Store more international by changing its pricing from U.S. dollars to local currencies for apps and in-app purchases in nine different countries later in December.

In the coming weeks, customers in nine countries will be paying for app store purchases in their local currency, with app developers getting paid in local currency as well. The nine countries and their respective currencies are as follows: Egypt (Egyptian Pound), Kazakhstan (Kazakhstani Tenge), Malaysia (Malaysian Ringgit), Nigeria (Nigerian Naira), Pakistan (Pakistani Rupee), Philippines (Philippine Peso), Qatar (Qatari Riyal), Tanzania (Tanzanian Shilling) and Vietnam (Vietnamese Dong).

Apple has notified developers of the currency change and notes that any auto-renewable subscriptions offered in the nine regions won't be interrupted.
