Problems with incorrect Windows apps price fixed

Here’s how the issue has been described:

Some promotional items are priced at $0.00 but are labeled as 99% off in Windows Store in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2. These items should be labeled as 100% off.

In order to fix this issue, you will need to make sure that you have installed the update rollup 2984006. Just like pretty much all the updates of this kind, it will apply to Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter, Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard, Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials, Windows Server 2012 R2 Foundation, Windows 8.1 Enterprise, Windows 8.1 Pro, Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 operating systems.

Fix Wrong currency displayed

You also might have the wrong currency displayed and this can be very annoying. Here’s how you can fix this issue:

  1. In the Search bar tap ‘settings’ (For Windows 8 or 8.1 tap Windows Button+C to open charms bar and click on ‘search’)
  2. In ‘Settings’ type ‘location’
  3. Select ‘Change Location’
  4. Change the ‘Home Location’

This might help you to have your country’s currency while entering Windows Store. Let us know in the comment section how have you fixed this issue.
