  • Changing from free on android

    Hi

    How do i upgrade the suite on the android store to payed?

  • #2
    Go to your developer console

    https://market.android.com/publish/Home

    Click on your app. Change price from free to paid, and set price accordingly.

      You can't: http://www.google.com/support/androi...&answer=138412

      Once you've set a price for an application, you may choose to change it at any time.

      If you have previously published an application for free, you cannot change it to have a price. You'll need to upload a new APK and add a price.

        but since can't cant upload a new APK you cant change price...

        cause you can go into your existing app and click the Upload Upgrade but that still doesnt allow you to change price so only option would be to Create a New Application but you cant as you upload the APK and gives you a error that application with that id already exist...

          Contact Android Marketplace abut this. That came from their page. My guess is that you will have to completely remove the original App.

            Problem with that is can't completely remove app all can do is unpublished which removes from marketplace but still left in your account with all the same settings... This is Google we are talking about here no way to contact them :'(

                  and even new version number doesn't let you change the price from Free to Paid.

                          doubt that will work either cause the apk will still be on another developer account......... so your just stuck with a free app........

                            How do I vary the package name?
