Android App Developers of India
Google has introduced new pre-paid app subscription capabilities and other changes for Android app developers in emerging markets, including India, to help them generate more revenue.
The tech giant said that it would allow developers to subscribe to offer users via prepaid plans that provide access to an app and its services for a fixed period.
“Users can extend this access by purchasing top-ups in your app, or in the Play Store. Prepaid plans allow you to reach users in regions where pay-as-you-go is standard, including India and Southeast Asia,” Google said. in a statement on Wednesday.
They can also provide an alternative for users not ready to purchase an auto-renewing subscription, the company said during its annual Google I / O developer conference.
Google also announced expanded launching options with the launch of “ultra-low” price points to reach users in emerging markets.
“Each base plan has a different billing period and renewal type. For example, you could create a subscription with a monthly auto-renewal plan, an annual auto-renewal plan, and a 1-month prepaid plan,” informed Google General Chat Chat Lounge
While the base plan contains the price available to all users, offers offer alternative pricing to eligible users.
The company said it was making it easy to sell subscriptions on Google Play by allowing developers to configure multiple base plans and special offers.
“For each subscription, you can now configure multiple base plans and offers. This allows you to sell your subscription in multiple ways, reducing operational costs by removing the need to create and manage an ever-growing number of SKUs,” the company said.
Developers can drop prices as low as 5 US cents which will allow them to run local sales and promotions and support in-app tipping.
The tech giant last year reduced the minimum price limit for products in more than 20 markets across Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
