Currently only users in 9 countries listed below are allowed to purchase Android Apps from Android Market Place. Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom and United States are listed as locations where priced apps could be marketed.
Then Android developers received an email from the Android Market Team tell us that additional 5 countries will be added. The specific countries will be announced via an follow up email, in the very near future.
Only the developers in the same nine countries above are allowed to sell apps on the market. We are not sure if the developers from those new countries will be able to add paid apps.
The Email message from Android Market Team;
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
The Android Market Team
