Android Paid Apps Support extends for additional countries in coming Weeks : Google

You Probably aware of the Fact that Google Android Paid apps are limited to only Few countries as of now. Which is a major Concern for Developers and Users all over the World. Users find it difficult to get some of the Best Apps on Android Market( Paid ) and Developers get slashed Downloads of the Full Potential of the Android Market. I mean, how can one miss this app( Beautiful Widgets by LevelUp Studios ) when you get Paid Android apps support in your Country.

Now Google has decided to address one of the most important issue of Android Market. Google recently informed Android Developers through mail that they will be adding more countries to the List of Countries already supporting Paid Apps in coming weeks. No Details yet on which countries are going to be Supported! The Support for Further Countries will being to roll out starting from anytime in the coming weeks.
Currently 14 countries support purchasing paid apps, while only 9 countries can distribute them. This is a major problem fro Google Android App developers! There are quite a few iPhone developers who want to develop for Android but stepped backward, as the paid app support for Countries are Limited. This would obviously decrease their revenue. Now this move certainly looks in favor of Developer. And more might bring more quality apps on Android Platform. 🙂
Most certain Countries thats likely to get support for Paid Apps in the coming weeks are India, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, Mexico, Brazil & Ireland. Users will be able to pay through their Google Checkout Account! You can Signup for a Google Checkout Account for Free Using your Gmail Id and Credit Card Info and pay Securely for Paid Android apps when it comes to your Country!

Here is the Mail from Google to Android developers,


We’re writing to inform you about some changes to Android Market that require your attention.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be adding paid apps support for additional countries. If you have selected to publish your paid apps to all locations and intend to support all new locations as we expand the number of supported countries for paid apps, you don’t have to do anything. If you have selected to publish your paid apps to all locations but intend to only target the currently supported 14 countries, please update your location selections to target these specific countries.

Please look for follow-up emails when we introduce paid apps support for specific additional countries in the coming weeks. At that time, you’ll have the option to target these specific countries.

Thanks, and we look forward to continue working with you on Android
