I picked that SCABB   :grin:

Itch.io charged me extra VAT on top of the purchase price though, which is annoying.   :confused:

Sorry about that, it just depends on where you live and we can't do anything about it.  (In fact Shaun and I have both bought the bundle ourselves and been charged tax!). 

Looking at the sales so far it charges you tax in the UK, but  not in Hong Kong or Germany for some reason!

Bandcamp does this too, it's an annoyance all right. But I bought it this morning from itch.io too and I got charged exactly $9.99. Maybe it's because my IP is German, or because I said I live in Vanuatu and there's no VAT there :-D (Sorry, I'm not giving out my real address!)

@Laura Hunt - it's okay, we're not going to stalk you and try to find out your true address!  (laugh)
@Lorenzo - aw dude I see it even charge you an extra 20 cents on top of the UK tax!   :~(  Good job this bundle is such good value that it's STILL great value after the added stuff...  ;)

Thanks everyone who has bought the bundle already, wherever you hail from and whether Itch decided to tax you or not ;-D

Okay weird, someone from Germany just bought and was charged tax.  I have no idea what the system is and I can't find specific details in Itch's documentation - all I know is that you may be charged around $2 tax, you may not.   ???

I think these extra little tax payments are related to VAT MOSS. I remember itch having to add this a few years ago. From memory it only applies to EU sales. It helps itch/developers ascertain if tax is due in certain countries.

I might be wrong!

Thanks for the purchases so far!!!  :-D :-D :-D

Maybe that was me, but I thought it was okay. This bundle is worth it.
I also wrote a little news article on a german gaming website about your bundle:

Good luck with you sales!

Thanks to everyone who has bought or is going to buy the bundle! I do wish itch would be clearer on the tax. Still, we see a better percentage of the money on itch than selling anything on Steam.

Thanks The Last to Know! From what I can tell, point and clicks are very popular in Germany! I might have asked this before but is your avatar drawn by the artist who does the album covers for KMFDM?

My avatar is from an album by Faith No More called King for a Day... Fool for a lifetime.
The cover art is taken from a graphic novel called Flood: A Novel in Pictures by Eric Drooker.
I googled for some KMFDM album covers and I see the resemblance. Google also told me that the artist of the KMFDM album covers is Aidan Hughes.
So, I guess the answer is no.  :wink:

Oh yeah I've seen that album cover before as well! I only have a few songs by em off The Real Thing, and a couple of songs from Nevermen of which the lead singer is a part of.

Okay back on topic, naughty Matt!

SCABB! A nod to both Monkey Island and LucasArt's naming of stuff like SCUMM.

Is the address forwarded to developers or others or is it just stored by itch? I understand your reservations, just wanting to make sure what the situation is.

I'm not totally sure. There was something in the wording of the VAT form that made me think that addresses are forwarded to developers, but I might just be paranoid. Still, what better chance to learn The Truth than here and now! :) Captain, Matt, Shaun, or anybody who's sold their games on itch.io, what info exactly do you get from each purchase? Just country? Address? Paypal account?

I think its just your email addresses, I haven't seen anything else. We're also sworn to not divulge them to anyone! We  wouldn't do that anyway, of course.

Oh and the country is shown, but not the region or anything.

Yeah, but what if YOU are the stalking, serial-killing creep? Huh? Thought I hadn't thought of that, did you :P

Oh and the country.

That's great to know! I've been extremely reluctant to purchase anything through itch.io so far, but this definitely changes things. Should have asked before ;) Thanks for the info!
