Gamer from Denmark here with a question of the huge difference in what it cost.
I have to pay $19 / 15 (109 Dkr) amonth to play.

On the FAQ you inform of these prices:
1 Month Subscription: $14.99 /12.99

Why the huge difference?

Denmark charges a tax on imported goods, this includes spice, weapons, and Twilek slaves.

Talk to your local Hutt and see if you can cut a deal.

Huh? In what currency does it show your price?

For me it shows in USD and says $14.99 (which would be ₪56.79, and if i convert that back to euros - 11.51 ... currency conversion rates are fun!)

Hmm that's strange. I can imagine there might be a small mark-up due to conversion rates, but that amount seems...excessive.

One thing you could do if you run out of time and don't get an answer is go for the 1-monthly recurring subscription just to activate your account, then cancel a few days later so you won't be charged at the end of the month.

You might for example be able to get a GTC cheaper in a local or online store.

If local options fail you can also use international / US-based sites like ShatteredCrystal which sell in USD and assuming your payment provider gives you a fair exchange rate those should be cheaper.

Just wondering why we can't be charged in euro/dollars and make banks worry about conversion rate.
The game is released but not localized in my country, and still they are charging in local currency

It's the same in Poland, I have to pay 59.99PLN, which is closer to 17.5$ than 14.99$. I think I'm just gonna have to buy game card codes on US ebay to pay the normal price...
