Russian division of Jolla offers incompetitive prices on their shop.jolla.ru site. Moreover they never offered any discounts which would be equal to 249EUR or something like that. Now, they are thinking about rising the price after Dec 31. They also do not have a full list of accessories at their site.

It would be more convenient for Russians to buy all stuff from shop.jolla.com site directly, especially at the time of promotions which occur sometimes. Perhaps you could also deduct EU VAT from the price for international sales.

Thank you.

how changing domain would change anything?=) the price is set, i beleive, by Jolla itself, not distributing company, And it is early stage of sales in russia. 1 year ago at the start of sales in europe there were no discounts in shop.jolla.com too.

but i do beleive too, that they should not raise their rpices. Current price even with new euro/ruble exchange rate is more than 250 euro (but i guess 250 euro in europe is a discount christmas price)

It is not about changing the domain of course. I guess jolla.com and jolla.ru are different organizations connected by the brand name mostly. It looks like Jolla HQ does not care about what price is set in Russia for their phone. Why? Also, as I noticed earlier, Russian shop does not offer a full range of accessories available at jolla.com, some users complain about it in our local group http://vk.com/jollaofficial

what exactly is missing? Luosu cases? They are not being produced by Jolla and are only available in europe, since it's just a small finish company. You can't get them in china or india. And as i said, i beleive, that they do set the price, not distributor. In every new country starting price was around 400 euro. And this was discussed a lot. Jolla can not put competitive price, because androide phones can be sold with a small price margin, because they don't do any software development or are being sold by big companies like samsung.

Not in India , Its still 210 Euros the cheapest Jolla in the market ! Jolla should try the same for russians. Not every one has deep pockets and this 50 euro difference would make/break the "decision - should I buy " !
