May 20, 2024—Genshin Impact announced a significant change for its US players. Starting from June 3, 2024, at 00:00 (UTC-4), the price display for purchasing items related to the game and its cloud services will be updated on the official website’s Top-Up Center and PC platform. This change will affect Genshin Impact and Genshin Impact · Cloud.

The new display will show the base price of each item, along with any associated taxes and fees. This update is in accordance with US market policies and tax regulations, which require consumers to be charged sales tax based on their state or region.

Why the Change?

The US has specific tax collection regulations that vary by state. These laws stipulate that consumers must pay a certain percentage of sales tax on purchased items. The percentage depends on where they live. The new price display aims to make these charges clear to players at the time of purchase.

How It Affects Players

For Genshin Impact players in the US, this means a more transparent buying process. When you buy an item, you will see not just the item’s base price but also the total cost including taxes and fees. This change is designed to help players understand the full cost upfront, avoiding surprises later.

If you have any questions about your specific tax rates, you should check your local tax regulations or contact your local tax authorities for detailed information.

Customer Support and Feedback

Genshin Impact encourages players to reach out if they need help or have questions. For assistance, you can contact Customer Service. To do this, send feedback through the in-game Paimon Menu. Go to Feedback > Send Feedback. Alternatively, you can email [email protected].

Community Reactions

Another player said: “I understand why they are doing it. It’s just part of living in the US. Taxes are everywhere.”
