As of today, application and game developers from Greece, Luxembourg, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Turkey, Ukraine and Vietnam can now apply for a merchant account with Google Play, which will allow them to publish paid applications and the ability to collect revenues in their local currency. This makes a total of 45 countries supported by the Google Play merchant registration.
While this is a good news to developers out there, consumers might be hoping that most free apps in the play store can still stay free now that more developers just got rights to publish paid apps. We’ll see. Good luck developers!
