Google will now allow app developers in India to use Third Party billing system

In compliance with the recent regulatory directions by the Competition Commission of India (CCI), Google will allow Indian android app developers to choose third party billing system for Google Play Store purchases in India.


Google Play's billing system changes in India

"In response to recent regulatory developments in India, we are now offering all developers the ability to offer an alternative billing system alongside Google Play’s for their mobile and tablet users in India. If a user pays through an alternative billing system, the Google Play service fee will be reduced by 4 per cent," stated by Google India on it's support page.


Currently, developers are charged a 15-30% commission for using Google's platform and payment tools and it is on the basis of their annual Play Store income. After the new directive in place, android app developers who choose to use an alternate payment method or third-party billing system for subscriptions and paid apps, will receive 4% commission discount.

However, the Android app developers will still have to pay Google 11-26% commission, depending on their income from the apps.
