Google no longer able to accept payments for app developers in Argentina


Android developers in Argentina have received a letter from Google informing them that Google will no longer be able to accept payments on behalf of the developers beginning June 27. This applies to both paid apps and in-app purchases, and is likely due to new restrictions by the Argentina government on currency exchanges. Not only will payments come to a halt, but beginning July 27, Google will remove paid apps and in-app items developed by Argentines.

Developers in Argentina will still be able to offer free apps, and Android users in Argentina will still be able to purchase apps in the Play Store, however. Google suggests in their letter that a solution for Argentines is to move their accounts to another country without such restrictions. Google hopes to restore payments in the future, but “no specific plans are in place at the moment.”
