Why I can't buy Expression Web 4 from Mexico RRS feed

  • Question

  • Actualy we have no choice to buy in any way this software (Microsoft Store, Amazon, ...)
    In all of them appears the message "You can not buy on line from your country..."

    We can not buy using Paypal, Visa, Amex or any other purchase method.

    Is increidible, is discrimination

  • ... is probably the result of a tariff or other restriction on the part of the Mexican government, or some other diplomatic or trade issue way beyond the control of Microsoft. Do you really suppose that Microsoft wants to shut out an entire national market, just for giggles?

    FWIW, we are not Microsoft here, just users of the product. This is a user-to-user forum, and although we get the occasional rare visit from the Microsoft development side, we seldom ever see Microsoft marketing or merchandising people here. If they did come around, they'd probably tell you the same thing, that they would love to sell into Mexico, but that currency, or trade, or internal governmental restrictions prevent cross-border sales. And so it goes...

    Just curious, can you download the trial version?

    cheers,
    scott

  • Here's a thought

    Visual Web Developer Express is FREE. You can most likely download it in Mexico. It has most of the design features of Expression, plus database capability. If you dont need the database capability, dont use that capability. But if you do anything with databases, you will need VWD anyway.
