Google has announced that it is now allowing the app developers living in China to earn revenue by publishing paid apps and apps with in-app purchases or subscriptions in Google Play. The company had added support for the Chinese consumers to set-up a merchant account in Google Wallet, which is a necessity to sell paid apps.
According to Google, the Chinese app developers will receive payment to their Chinese bank accounts via USD wire transfers.
With the support for China, the total number of countries, where app developers can sell paid apps in Google Play, is now 62.
“Google Play is the largest digital store for Android users to discover and purchase their favorite mobile app and games, and the ecosystem is continuing to grow globally. Over the past year, we’ve expanded the list of countries where app developers can sign up to be merchants on Google Play, totaling 60 countries, including Lebanon, Jordan, Oman, Pakistan, Puerto Rico, Qatar and Venezuela most recently,” wrote Ellie Powers, product manager for Google Play, in a blog post.
