I think I can buy the cheap Chinese Apps through Google Play Store. I hope this would be real good news for App Users all over 130 countries. But people from China cannot purchase these Apps through Google Play Store as the Google Play Store is not available in China. Will these Chinese Developers attract the existing users with their apps?

This is real good news for Android users in China because they can soon begin to download Android apps from the Google Play Store. Google has revealed that developers from China will now be able to offer paid apps in the Google Play Store. But unfortunately, there is a catch to this. While they can now download apps from the Google Play Store as well as sell their own paid apps, they cannot purchase the apps that were developed by their fellow Chinese.

It’s like download all the apps you want or purchase all the applications you want except for the ones that are from China or were developed by Chinese. For Chinese to begin selling on the Google Play Store, of course, they have to go to the usual routine like getting a developer account via the Google Play Store and then setting up a merchant account in Google Wallet.

When all have been setup and purchases begin rolling in, they will be paid through USD wire transfer. While Android users are expecting an increase in the number of new and quality apps from the Google Play Store, others are worried that several of the favorite free apps will later ask for a few bucks to be able to access the premium content or for a continued use.
