GoPro fans and customers in Europe are angry. A GoPro Hero6 Black costs £ 378.08 in the USA. The same Hero6 Black costs £ 508.84 in The Netherlands. In Sweden it’s even as high as £ 538.52. GoPro does not seem interested in Europe.
For the last years GoPro had no competitive answer to Yiaomi’s Yi 4K and the Yi 4K+. The Hero 6 Black is a very good action camera. Not much better than the 4K Plus is, but if the price was £ 249.19 like the Yi GoPro instead of £ 378.08, it could have been a real alternative to the GoPro Killer. Instead, GoPro decided to double their price for Europeans.
GoPro does not only piss off fans in Europe
The Belgians and the Dutch are not that much into Amazon
If you are interested in selling in Europe please note that Amazon is not as big in Belgium and The Netherlands as it is in Great Brittain. We are not just fixed on Amazon (or Ebay) but also buy on Aliexpress, Geekbuying, Gearbest and DX from China. The favorite Dutch online marketplace is Marktplaats. The Belgians love 2dehands.be.
If only GoPro had done its homework properly.
