As of May 2, our product prices will unfortunately need to increase. Generally speaking, the reasons for this are current inflation rates, global issues with supply chains due to COVID-19 and price increases from our suppliers.
For us, this has meant a 25% increase in costs within our supply chains. We have thoroughly reviewed our options and this is the result: from May 2, we will increase product prices on the EU and NA platforms by an average of 6%, with increases varying by item.
