I have noticed that the price difference between Canada and US for the same items is around 40% higher which is outrageous as you are ripping off Canadians.

Are you sure they are ripping off Canadians? 1 US dollar doesn't equal 1 Canadian dollar and you have to take into account that due to inflation of certain parts of the country, even a dollar doesn't worth the same even within the country. I dunno, I'm not an expert on this. If what you're saying is true, then that's pretty absurd of Igg.

There are any factors affecting cost in different countries and server

A main reason is of currency change
$1 US dollar= $1.26 Canadian dollar

When you do the maths
4.99*1= 4.99
4.99*1.26= 6.29

So technically you aren't being ripped off but rather saving money
Canadians are actually saving 4% income.

BUT

A US dollar in Britain= 0.70 pounds
And while some servers get a discount
BOTH American and British have offers of 4.99

Perhaps there are other reasons...

Hope that helps :)

I may be wrong in saying this, correct me if I am.

I believe the exchange rates are not issued by the game. Rather from the platform in which you are purchasing from - in my case, it would be through Google Play

Hello, this price fluctuation has to do with server and currency exchange rates. However, recently in the news section in the game they announced efforts to make things more balanced and equal across all major currencies to avoid this issue of "ripping off." IGG is not trying to rip off certain people, it just is how economics factors into the business.
