Buyers in unsupported regions might be able to purchase apps, but they can't pay in their local currency and might have to pay international transaction fees.

Google's transaction fee #

Each time someone buys your app using Chrome Web Store Payments, Google charges you a 5% transaction fee. For example, if you charge $1.99, you'll receive $1.89; if you charge $9.99, you'll receive $9.49.

Note: In-app payments for ARC apps are subject to a 30% transaction fee. For example, if you charge $1.99 for an item offered in an ARC app, you'll receive $1.39. This is to ensure a consistent pricing structure with in-app payments made in apps available on Google Play. ARC does not currently support other purchase models including up-front payments, subscriptions and in-app version upgrades; as these types of purchases require provisioning from Google Play which is not currently enabled. For more information on monetizing ARC apps, see Getting Started with ARC.
Note: Google Checkout sends out payments once per month in your local currency.

Price tiers #

The following table shows the pricing tiers for each region. Each "You get" row shows approximately the payment you should expect per sale at each price.

Note: You can add a custom value for any pricing tier within each region's range. A warning tells you if you've added a custom value that is higher or lower than the range.
