Avangate charges more if you are outside of Eastern Europe!!

I am an
entrepreneur who has a legit online business. I have been selling my software
through Avangate for the past 3 years. I can tell I have brought a considerable
amount of profit to Avangate over these years. Also I can tell that their
commission is not low.
But today I got
really pissed off as a fellow Russian vendor told me that he got an e-mail from
Avangate with a special offer of 2.9%+1$ per transaction to RUSSIAN VENDORS
ONLY!!! When I have to pay 4.9%+2.5$! This is fundamentally unfair to give such
privileges just because you come from a specific country. I feel discriminated
and neglected, especially when being a loyal and profitable partner to them for
the past years! And another question rises here, Avangate is based in Romania,
giving Eastern European businesses special treatment, but fully exploiting the
vendors from the West like me.
What I am going to
do is ask them for the same pricing scheme. If they refuse me, I am going to
take my business somewhere else. After all there are lots of other ecommerce
providers who treat their customers with respect without differentiating them.
Just wanted to
share this with all of you who uses Avangate, I don't think that we should just
sit and watch how they treat us like this. Anyway see the e-mail for yourselves:
I hope your
business is thriving!
I would like to
inform you that we are releasing a new proposal on electronic commerce.
We plan to release
a new package Avangate Base Edition with the commission4.5% + $ 1, but for
Russian partners, we have a special offer:
commission: 2.9% + $ 1 (instead of 4.5% + $ 1)
and Russian-speaking account manager technical support
Surely, the best
platform for the software market (with features designed for large customers,
like Kaspersky, DrWeb, Intel, Bitdefender, etc.)
certified by wet seal
software for your bank
20% discount for
Managed Affiliates Services and / or Web MarketingCampaign
Please note that
this proposal is confidential and is valid until December 15, 2011.
Please let me know
if you are interested or not.
I wish you a nice
