A partir de este 27 de junio, los desarrolladores argentinos no podrán cobrar por sus aplicaciones de pago. Esto implica que solo podrán ofrecer aplicaciones gratuitas. Tampoco pueden percibir pagos in-app.
Google no ha aclarado la razón de esta medida que afecta a toda la industria del desarrollo sobre la plataforma Android, poniendo potencialmente en riesgo de quiebra a desarrolladores independientes y empresas argentinas que dependen de estos pagos para subsistir.
A continuación la copia del correo recibido por los desarrolladores.
We are writing to you today to inform you that Google Play will no longer be able to accept payments on behalf of developers registered in Argentina starting June 27, 2013. Developers based in Argentina may continue to offer free applications in the Google Play store. All applications requiring the billing permission as well as in-app products will be unpublished from the Google Play store on June 27, 2013. A payout for your earnings through this time will be made on July 22, 2013. If your accumulated earnings at that time do not meet the payout threshold, you may close your linked AdSense account to receive a final payment.
If you are legally able to do business in one of the other supported countries and otherwise satisfy the Google Wallet Terms of Service for that country, you may register for a Google Wallet Merchant Center account in that country and transfer your applications to it. To review the Google Wallet Merchant Center account Terms of Service, go to this link:
You would need new Google Play Developer account to tie to your new Merchant account. To learn more about creating new Google Play Developer account and transferring your applications, please visit our Help Center at https://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/139626
If you have any questions, please contact Google Checkout Merchant team at https://support.google.com/payments/?hl=en#topic=3091397&ts=3126357&contact=1
We hope to restore payouts to developers based in Argentina in the future. While no specific plans are in place at the moment, we are looking forward to restoring this service, and we will make sure to notify you once payouts to developers based in Argentina are restored.
The Google Play Team
