When you buy gems in VeVe, you're charged in USD: 1 gem costs $1USD. But you might pay a slightly different price based on your currency or payment method - read on to learn more.
Gems are the VeVe in-app token that you use to exchange for collectibles during drops or in the Market.
When you purchase gems in the VeVe app, you are using the In-App Purchase feature provided by Apple (Apple Pay) or Google (Google Play). We charge $1USD for gems, but the total price you pay can be affected by your payment method and additional fees and taxes charged by your credit card provider, bank or PayPal.
Buying gems using Apple Pay
If you are paying for gems in a currency other than USD, Apple will charge you a rate based on their pricing tier, not the current exchange rate - you can see an example of their pricing matrix here: https://www.equinux.com/us/appdevelopers/pricematrix.html

The rates that Apple charge are outside of our control and not collected by us. Additionally - for example, if you pay by credit card - your bank or credit card company may add additional taxes or fees.
Buying gems using Google Play
If you are paying for gems in a currency other than USD, and if you pay by credit card, your bank or credit card company may add additional taxes or fees. Please note that Google Play will not allow you to pay for gems using a gift card or voucher
During the payment process, the in-app payment screen in VeVe will show you the exact amount you will be charged by Google Play or Apple Pay (before any bank or credit card fees) so that if you do not wish to buy gems at that price, you can cancel the payment.
