Since Google I/O, Google have been working hard to make the Chrome Web Store available to more users around the world as well as to provide additional monetization opportunities for developers. Now, they're happy to share progress in both of these areas.
Google Expands International Support for Chrome Web Store
Google has recently launched the much awaited In App Payments API in the US. This API provides a simple and effective way to monetize your apps in the Chrome Web Store, allowing you to complete transactions with buyers from 140 countries. Integration is simple - all you need is to do is to insert a few lines of code. An even more exciting feature of the API is the 5% flat transaction fee pricing.
With Googles in-store payments, developers in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom can now complete merchant account sign up and start adding their paid apps to the Chrome Web Store. Paid apps will be published to international users later this year. In the meantime, you can localize your app listing to make it accessible to more people and be eligible for promotion in local store fronts.
