Offer apps in multiple currencies

If you're in a location that supports merchant registration, you can offer apps in multiple currencies through the Google Payments Merchant Center.

If you make an app available in a location that supports a local currency, Google Play customers will see the app offered in that currency. Customers will be charged in their local currency, but payment will be issued in the currency set in your Google Payments Merchant Center account.

Payment

Payment will be issued to your bank account in the currency that matches your Google Payments Merchant Center account. You can't select the payment currency or receive payment in a currency other than the currency associated with your Google account or your domestic bank account.

On the orders page of your account, you'll see the currency the buyer paid. If the currency for the order doesn't match your Google Payments Merchant Center account, Google will convert the value to your currency. Payment for orders made in local currencies will follow your normal payment schedule.

Exchange rates

The Google Payments Merchant Center uses the exchange rate at the time the order is placed to convert sales processed in the buyer's currency to the currency of your Google account.

This rate updates throughout the day, and conversion occurs each time an order is charged. You'll see the exchange rate in your order receipt for each app.

Refunds

For orders placed in the buyer's local currency, refunds will be issued in the same currency as the order and changes in exchange rates won't affect the refund amount. The full amount of the refund will be sent to your customers credit or debit card in their local currency. Any debits applied to your Google Payments Merchant Center account for chargebacks will use the exchange rate from when the order was placed.

Local currency support

When Google adds support for a new buyer currency in a country where you already distribute your app, we'll automatically generate a price for your app based on your app's default price, the current exchange rate, and locally relevant pricing patterns.

You can review your app's prices on your app's Pricing & Distribution page.
