In-app Billing availability & transaction fees
In-app Billing is available for developers in supported locations for merchants and can only be applied to digital goods sold in apps distributed on Google Play.
- Google Play Developer Program Policies apply to in-app transactions.
- The standard 30% transaction fee applies to in-app transactions on Google Play.
Purchases made through In-app Billing are available to users on devices running the latest version of the Play Store app. To use In-app Billing features, set up a Google Payments Merchant Center Account using the Google Play Developer Console.
Important: Apps using in-app products must declare the
com.android.vending.BILLING permission in their APK manifest file. Without the
com.android.vending.BILLING permission, developers can only manage existing in-app products using the Google Play Developer Console and any attempts by the app to make In-app Billing purchases will fail.
