In an email sent to developers, Steam revealed that they’d be launching the Australian Dollar at roughly 3pm Pacific Time on November 20th (10am AEDT on November 21st). This is just in time for Steam’s Spring sale.
In what sounds like it will be a massive ordeal, it also notes that if developers don’t include Australian pricing on their games, then Australians will no longer be able to purchase them starting tomorrow (once the change is in effect).
This is a reminder that we are planning to launch the Australian Dollar (AUD) on Steam tomorrow, November 20 at roughly 3pm Pacific Time – just in time for the Autumn sale to begin on Wednesday! If your games don’t have AUD prices submitted before AUD goes live, customers in Australia will no longer be able to purchase them through Steam.
If you haven’t submitted AUD prices for all your games, you should so so through the bulk pricing tool in Steamworks ASAP.
