Paid Apps soon available in More Countries

As you might know, you can buy Paid apps in the Market only if you are located in a country from a list of only the few available. Well, the Android Market Team just sent an email to all the developers to let them know that they will add more countries in the coming weeks.


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

They didn’t say if they will also let developers from more countries to sell their apps – today developers from only 9 countries can sell their apps in the market – Lots of eager developers are waiting to be able to monetize their work.

    And while you are waiting, you can put your apps on alternative markets in most countries already. I put mine on, is another good alternative. These markets are both available in many countries where Google’s Android Market is not yet available.

    Funny, I’m in New Zealand (not on the list linked to) and I can buy apps from the market (parallel import, Asian, phone) as can people I know who have phones from local carriers.
