Google to accept 3rd-party app payments in India

In a significant move, Google will allow developers of non-gaming Android apps from several countries, including India, to offer third-party payment options under a pilot project. On these alternate payment systems, developers will see their service fee of 15-30 per cent reduced by 4 per cent. However, even now, developers will have to support Google’s inbuilt system in their apps.

The development follows increased global regulatory scrutiny on Google and Apple over the companies mandating their own in-app billing systems and charging commission on each transaction.
