Re: LinkedIn overcharges you if you live in Switzerland

Monthly Premium plan if you are located in Germany: 29 EUR/month

Monthly Premium plan if you are located in Switzerland: 38 CHF=35 EUR/month

It's only 6 EUR/month more, but it's very annoying that they increase the price just because of the myth that "people in Switzerland earn more" (which is not always true). And they apply a 19% VAT, which I think is wrong.
I mean it's just a website, they don't have any additional cost by serving Swiss customers.

Yet another ripoff caused by geolocation...

I live in Switzerland but the subscription is in GBP I guess as that's where I first signed up. 24.98 = 28 currently.


CHF is at a historic high against GBP and EUR and I guess these companies have to hedge against a change in currency rates but it's pretty much been that way for a long time now. 29eur to 35CHF is 1.2 which isn't too bad. You can still find stickers on clothes where the CHF price is double the euro one.
