When is a price change effective?

Hi,

When you release a new app, I think it's effective at midnight for each territory, starting with New Zealand and other countries in this timeframe. Therefore, Europe comes after, US later on.
Am I right about that?

The thing I don't know is for price changes. I thought it was the same but someone told me it was effective for all the countries at the same time. Is that true? And if yes, according which timeframe?

If anyone has experience about that, I'll be happy to know .
Thanks.

If you're setting the date of a price change in advance it behaves like you described for new releases.

If you're changing the price and setting it to 'immediately' then as soon as a server notices the change it changes your price. All of the app stores will have your new price within a few hours.
