    How to Sell Apps on GP if I'm from "Unsupported" Country?

    Hello,

    I'm from Slovenia and currently there is now way for me to sell apps on Google Play. However, a friend of mine lives in Austria, which is a "supported" country. He doesn't make apps or anything, but could he open a Google Play Developer account, on which I would sell my apps? I would publish free, ad supported app on my account, but if a user would want the full version, there would be a link to his account. Is this even allowed? If not, I could publish both free, and payable apps on his account.

    Thanks and kind regards.

    Hi! I don't know about your country, but my country is extremely aggressive with taxes, and they want to squeeze every penny and then some out of you. I don't believe we will be eligible any time soon. If if we become eligible, I expect them to tax the income from apps as speculative and take 40% from profits. I'm kidding, but I would not be surprised, if this happened.

    Ask your friend to create a Google Merchant account and send money to his account. You'll have some problems though:
    If you earn a lot, then your friend needs to pay taxes for it.
    If google finds out about it your account may get banned. (mostly won't happen)

    Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it. I'll think about.

    Larry Page was asked about it at the Google I/O (watch it, he gave an interesting speech) but gave a vague response that "they are working on it".

    I will look up his speech, thanks for sharing.

    By the way, what about Amazon? Can we sell there? I didn't take time to read all their developer documents - probably because I get only a fraction of traffic from what I get on Google.

    I was able to sell on Amazon when I wasn't yet on Google Play, so you should check it out. But I didn't get much sells there.

    You can sell in samsung store... and you shouldnt worry so much that you cant sell. Almost all devs here who is able to sale in market, they dont make money on it. They put apps in market for free with ads, for a specific "reason" that we all know.
