I've noticed Gaijin sells their stuff about 40% cheaper the Russian web store than they do in in the European one. Hence I wondered whether Gaijin are cool with customers circumventing their payment region and contacted the support about it. Turns out they are. Here is my correspondence with them:
I consider to purchase some Golden Eagles and noticed you sell those significantly cheaper in Russia than you do in Germany where I currently reside. Now, as a penny pinching student, I wonder what's your policy on customers circumventing their intended payment zone (e.g. by using a Russian VPN). Do you tolerate such purchases or do they violate any of your terms/conditions and if so how do you enforce them?
Thank you for contacting Gaijin Customer Support.
Apologies for the delayed response. Please, take a look at the following article: https://support.gaijin.net/hc/en-us/...stomer-Support

Now, I wouldn't mind to save a few bucks during my next purchase while preferably using paypal as payment method. However I don't have access to a russian VPN.
I wonder if anyone here is experienced with circumventing Gaijins payment regions and could briefly describe a convenient way to do so.
I'd also appreciate if someone could recommend a cheap VPN service that's not too shady and has got servers in Russia.
