Few weeks ago, Google enabled Nigerians to buy apps from the Android market. After this big move, many thought the next one will be allowing us to sell. Too bad, Nigerian developers cannot sell Apps now in the Android market which is really very bad.
Any app uploaded from Nigeria must be given out free of charge. Until Nigeria is added to the list of merchants, no developer that wants payment via Nigeria banking system can sell Apps in the Android market.
The current list of merchant countries is available here. Nigeria is not there.
Currently, developers in the below countries may register as Google Checkout merchants and sell paid applications:
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- South Korea*
- United Kingdom
- United States
