Well, today is the day that developers can start uploading applications to Android Market with end user pricing. Priced Applications will be available to the US and UK Market by mid next week. Germany, Austria, Netherlands, France, and Spain will offer priced applications later this quarter.

Google Checkout (what else?) will serve as the payment and billing mechanism for Android Market. Developers without a Google Checkout merchant account should set one up via the publisher website.
