    1.It's the price charged by JingDong Mall.
    3. Since JingDong is a Chinese electronic business company,it's extremely unlikely for them to charge in foreign currency, so we can rule out the possibility of ¥ standing for Japanese Yen or other currencies.

    As zhg's said, ¥ stands for the Chinese Yuan.
    (The price of 357.590 EUR is similar in the UK, so it can't be 140 EUR, unless it's second hand :)).

    I suppose the website automatically converts the price to the local currency, according to the user who surfs it.
    1 euro is around 8 yuan, so EUR 357,590 should be right. (treciento cincuenta y siete euro, y cincuenta y nueve centavos... I don't know why they added an extra 0. In Chinese and in English the dot is used to separate the cents, here I put the comma to avoid confusion for you)
