New Payment Options for the Android Market

Android developers will have more ways to satisfy customers in the near future according to Google's Tim Bray. He mentions that the Android team is working on "introducing new payment options" for the Android Market.


From the Android Developers Blog:

In the spirit of transparency, we wanted to highlight the changes:

  • In Section 13.1, “authorized carriers” have been added as an indemnified party.

  • Section 13.2 is new in its entirety, covering indemnity for payment processors for claims related to tax accrual.

These new terms apply immediately to anyone joining Android Market as a new publisher. Existing publishers have been notified of this change via email; they have up to 30 days to sign into the Android Market developer console to accept the new terms.


Right now, T-Mobile is the only carrier that lets its customers put charges for mobile apps on their monthly phone bill. This is great news for anyone who doesn't like or know how to use Google checkout. I know I would like a PayPal option and it would be welcomed by other many people as well.
