Hi there, game looks wonderful :)
Before I purchase, can you please confirm whether the game is DRM-free as well as a Steam key, or it is only a Steam key? (I am one of those "anti-DRM" game players!)
Thanks in advance,
Same problem as I had a few weeks back. I was just trying to buy another game (I bought something else with no problems a few days ago) and again got this error message:
"Sorry, we can't accept your purchase at this time due to the updated 2015 VAT regulations. Your billing address does not match your purchase location (HU)."
I'm definitely not in Hungary (still), and I have emailed support twice with no response. Can you please look into this for me?
Seems like Myriam has fixed this by email, I have managed to now buy the games (and a few more, there are some real gems curated here). For those who come here with the same problem, the purchasing system was seeing my IP address as Hungary rather than a part of the UK and therefore throwing the VAT problem up.
Thanks for the help and fix.
I don't use a proxy, my current IP address is: [removed] which is owned by Sure in Guernsey (they also operate in Jersey). Sure is a division of Cable & Wireless. I am using the PC from Jersey and always have, I have never connected from another country or area.
I checked my profile to see if anything was wrong there, but it all looks normal. And I did purchase some games last week with no problem.
It's a weird one!
edit: removed public IP address listing
I am trying to purchase 3 different games from itch.io but I get the following error each time:
Sorry, we can't accept your purchase at this time due to the updated 2015 VAT regulations <http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/taxation/vat/how_vat_works/telecom/index_en.htm>. Your billing address does not match your purchase location (HU).
I live in a non-VAT area (Jersey in the UK) and have bought a number of other games from this site recently without a problem.
Has anyone here experienced this and able to help?
I did email itch.io a few days ago but havent received a response as yet.
Thanks in advance,
