Google Brings Additions To Buyer’s Currency On Android Market

This is an mail we received from our Google Android Market account. They are having some changes in the system.

 

As mentioned in a previous email, Android Market is changing to a new model for pricing applications called “Buyer’s Currency.” The change directly affects how you price your apps, as well as how users around the world purchase them.

 

We’re writing to let you know that we’ve recently added a new country to the program: South Korea. All prices for this locale will be in the Korean Won (KRW) currency. Please visit the Android Market Developer Console to set prices for this new country by August 15, 2011.

IMPORTANT: On August 15, 2011, Android Market will automatically assign Buyer’s Currency prices for your products for the new country if you have not manually set them in the Developer Console. Android Market assigns a price based on the price of your app in your home currency, converted to each target currency using the exchange rate on that day. This is a one-time conversion associated with the transition to the new Buyer’s Currency model. If you have already set your per-currency prices manually, Android Market will not override them.

 

 

You can continue to set and adjust the prices of your apps at any time, in your home currency and in any Buyer’s Currency available.

Thank you for your continued support of Android Market.
