Google Play’s Payments policy. Are we ready?

Hi Andrew , Mark Purser , Alex T⚜️ 

We know this has been discussed last year in here

We received this email (attachment) which basically says:

We gave developers 12 months to update published apps to comply with the policy. This grace period ends on September 30, 2021, and by that date, all apps must have:

•    Integrated Google Play Billing as the payment method.

•    Removed any alternative billing systems.

After September 30, 2021, it will not be possible to publish an update to a noncompliant app. Also, versions of any apps that are not in compliance may be removed from the Google Play Store without notice.


Here is a link we found: https://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/10281818

So, we are asking... are we ready for this?

    • It's worth noting that this policy applies to things like membership fees and digital goods sold by the website operator, but doesn't apply to peer-to-peer payments. So, marketplace integrations where users are listing the goods and directly paying each other are probably not affected.

      • Yeah we need work arounds.
