Who makes a better salary: PRINCE2 or PMP certified?

I have now the option to choose between PRINCE2 or PMP for project management certification. Since I'm doing this certification to get more money, my decision is solely based on which one of them has more monetary advantage? Is it the PRINCE2 or the PMP certification?

It depends on your location. In some places, PRINCE2 is unheard of, and thus, if you have a PRINCE2 there, then don't expect a better salary than that of a PMP.

I personally noticed that in the majority of cases, the PMP offers a bigger bang for the buck and you are more likely to get a bigger salary with a PMP than a PRINCE2. There might be the odd case though, where PRINCE2 is better.

Just study the market where you want to work and see which one is more preferred: PRINCE2 or the PMP, and make your decision based on your findings.
