  1. For each country, manage your in-app item's local price, and either enable or do not enable user payment via their phone bill.

CAUTION:     Ensure each country has a suitable local price.
                        Each local price will ONLY be in effect after your app AND the in-app item are certified for distribution.

NOTE:  For each country, you have the following options:

  • Do not enable phone bill payment and either:
    • Accept the default local price (based on the standard price and the exchange rate or a price set by country price requirements).
    • Enter your own local price (subject to country price requirements).
  • Enable phone bill payment (when available) and either:
    • Accept the default local price (which is the phone bill nearest to the default local price).
    • Select another available phone bill price as the local price.

NOTE:   For details about the payment method applied to each country, see the Seller Office Terms and Conditions.

  1. In the Add Item Item popup window, click Advanced Mode
  2. When NOT enabling phone bill payment:
    1. Review the local price for the country.
    2. If the default local price is NOT suitable, enter a suitable price.
      NOTE:  If your new price is below the country minimum, the price will be changed to the minimum.
      If a notice is displayed that your entry does not meet country price requirements, either accept the automatically entered price or enter another price.
