to the right is a screen shot from the windows 8 store app on my machine, note the app called cozy and in particular its price, it is in dollars… and i live in south africa where we use rands. :/
the store settings are controlled by the windows region settings, so to fix this you need to change the settings, which you can get by search for region:
once in the region app go to location and change it from united states to south africa, or where ever you are:
next time you launch the store (you may need to do a reboot) it will be in the right country!
