Developers in Azerbaijan, Iceland, Peru, and Yemen can now register to sell paid apps on Google Play

Google has expanded the ability to publish paid apps, as well as app with in-app purchases, on Google Play to developers in four new countries: Azerbaijan, Iceland, Peru, and Yemen.

Developers in the above countries can now register as merchants on the Google Play developer portal, enabling them to receive payments for their apps. No one like to work for free, so this is great news for developers operating out of each of the four countries. With this move Azerbaijan, Iceland, Peru, and Yemen join a growing list of countries where merchant registration is now available, totaling 78 in all.

  • True on Iceland, it is odd. But Yemen? They're in like a three way civil war. What are they going to offer, an ISIS recuritment app?
  • No, alert app to notify when US is shelling civilians
  • Lol you mean when Saudi Arabia is dropping bombs haha Posted via the Android Central App on my Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 2013
  • Regardless of who's doing the bombing, I sure hope that an app that notifies you when shelling is about to start wouldn't be a paid app anyway.
