Google Chrome in-app payments launch outside of US

Back in July, Google launched its in-app payments for developers in the US to use. We reported in August that the in-app payment API from Google was going to be rolling out internationally to support developers in other countries that want to make money from in-app purchases too. As of yesterday, the in-app payment API from Google is now available outside the US.

Google has rolled the API out to 17 more countries. The countries that now have access include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. The API allows the developer to take payments through the apps they sell on the Chrome Web Store.

The API can also be used to take payments on apps sold on the developer websites. The API is said to be easy to use, and it has a large user base of people that already have Google wallet set up. The transaction fees internationally are the same as the fees are in the US at 5% of the transaction.
