    Buy Android apps with no credit card required? Google says yes!



    Payment changes are coming to Android by September, according to Google's Tim Bray. In a short blog post, Bray outlined these changes, which he expresses will be beneficial to developers, and consequently, we believe users will benefit as well:

    • In Section 13.1, “authorized carriers” have been added as an indemnified party.
    • Section 13.2 is new in its entirety, covering indemnity for payment processors for claims related to tax accrual.
    In layman's terms, this means that consumers will be able to purchase apps through their carriers' plan. So, what's the benefit? One word: convenience. Instead of paying via Google Checkout, these changes will allow the purchasing of Android apps to be much more streamlined and easier for the consumer. No long will you be required to set up a third-party payment account to download paid apps.

    Apparently, T-Mobile already allows its users to add the expense of paid apps to their bills, but with the new changes, all carriers will inherently have the ability to do so. This could mean increased sales for developers, many of which have had a hard time making that Android commitment, because of low sales figures (compared to the Apple App Store). Do note, these changes won't take place until 30 days down the road, so don't expect your carrier to provide this option until late August/early September.

    What is everyone's thoughts on the new payment options? Will you stick to using your Google Checkout/PayPal account, or consider allowing your carrier to tack on these charges to your monthly bill? Let us know.

    I love it when my bills get merged...plus one to VZW if they adopt this.

    But will that give VZW another opportunity to tack on another tax?

    You make it sound like Verizon likes to tack on taxes. Those taxes, Verizon is required to collect cost them money, they don't make anything off them.
    Like any merchant, the collection of taxes and then the distribution to the taxing authority costs the merchant money.

    I think this is awesome that Google is doing this! BUT, I will continue to use a third party payment system for budgeting reasons.

    As this is a VERY busy forum, if you have direct questions to me your best bet for me to respond is to send me a PM

    I'll go along with this. Maybe have a choice on payment.

    I think it's good that they're going to offer this option, but I'll be sticking with Google Checkout. I'd rather take care of apps a few dollars at a time rather than getting sticker shock on my monthly bill. I would actually probably get fewer paid apps if I saw them all together on my bill.

    Sounds good but what about those who will try to play the system and be like "I never authorized these purchases" or "Someone used my droid to purchase the apps", you know its bound to happen.

    Perhaps I didn't say this quite right...sorry about that - the market price currently posted is the price we are charged. I wondered if VZW would somehow roll this into something that is currently taxed and that cost would go up - or the other possibility - I don't see VZW doing this for free so will this raise the cost of the apps so VZW can get a cut?

    +1 if Google Checkout remains an option. I'm on a business plan and work won't cover apps.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.
