Yes, the ability to set different product prices for different countries and regions is limited to those on the Advanced plan, as per our page on international pricing. You can set price adjustments if you're on the Shopify plan ($79 USD p/m), which allows you to increase or decrease the prices of products based on the country or region via percentage mark-ups/ mark-downs.
Outside of this option, my recommendation would be to consider opening more than one Shopify store if you're looking to target numerous markets. This would allow you set prices on a region-by-region basis, use different gateways for each store (if you wish), and generally have more control and flexibility when it comes to setting region-specific settings and details on your store.
You can also get a discount if you have multiple stores, although this would limit you in terms of regional differences. You should be fine having different prices, currencies and languages for different stores, but other aspects such as the branding, products, store name, account owner etc must be the same. If you were on the Shopify plan on your first store, for example, the multi store discount would allow you to get the same features of the Shopify plan on your second store for the price of the Basic plan ($29 USD p/m).
I hope this helps explain your questions but please let me know if you have more.

Hello, To give an update on what I found to make this work for me, in hopes that it will help others in this context to be more and more in demand and that Shopify will make this a standard functionality to match their customers’ reality. They made it easy with the $300 monthly plan but here’s how I found to do it.
oh and those $29/monthly apps offering Multi Pricing Country aren’t compatible to us using a third party fulfilment center - I use Shopify Fulfilment and there is a clash with inventory management so I had to be creative.
I followed one of Victor’s suggestions to set price adjustments if you're on the Shopify plan ($79 USD p/m), which allows you to increase or decrease the prices of products based on the country or region via percentage mark-ups/ mark-downs.
Then I installed the Auto-Currency Switcher App from MLVeda.com (which offers absolute great support) for $9.99/month - this app automatically sets currency to match shoppers’ IP address so no Currency Selector is needed (which for me was important for the purpose of setting manual prices fir different markets which don’t necessarily follow the market currency rate - to help cover shipping fees or for any other marketable feasible reasons).
BTW - the Shopify GEOlocation app doesn’t automatically select the currency - I mention this because it took several conversations with different Shopify Support Agents to figure this out. I’m not blaming here, I’m saying this context seems to be new to Shopify and again, I hope this can / will become a base (meaning simple) functionality for this obvious market reality.
Best of luck and continuity to all.
