Nokia Ovi Store will lose billing support on N9, which means content on N9 canít be billed in China anymore
 
Quoting an email from nokia :

{
Recently we are going to deploy an upgrade of store billing to improve the billing in China, but unfortunately as a side effect of this, we will lose billing support on N9, which means content on N9 canít be billed in China anymore.

We contact you because youíve published excellent apps into N9, China, but as a result of above, we have to take down all your paid content lived on N9 China shortly:

∑ If your content is published into China only ,then it will be unpublished(for the user who ever purchased your content before, it still can be re-downloaded via store)

∑ If your content is published into areas including China, then only China distribution will be rejected and wonít affect other areas.



There is no action required but inform you about this. If you still wish to have your N9 content published into China, please make it a free version and resubmit it.

We apologize for the lost caused by this and thank you for being a valued publisher!

}

How to deal with this ?

UPDATE :

{
Kindly be advised that we are updating our system to provide better service for Nokia Store publishers. Please also be informed that In-app Advertising are restricted in China. For more information regarding restrictions in China, kindly use the link below and select "Guidelines and Restrictions".

}


{

Please be informed that this is allowed if you will use the In-app Purchase feature. For more information regarding IAP, kindly refer to the link below.

}


I also asked about "ads supported" gratis apps ...

Jolla might have its own store too , I am wondering if it will installable on harmattan too ?

Nothing that in-app purchases would not fix IMO...this is a very good example of how Nokia drops the problem on the devs shoulders!

China always restrict many things, example: in china, you cant access twitter, facebook, Youtube etc

The problem I think China restricted something

That is true; but still it does not explain why they would need to "excuse" this blockage with a store "upgrade" problem.

It must be a Nokia issue; they have just launched the Lumia series there with WP8 Marketplace with paid apps... Surely they have billing support for them right so why remove for the N9? Just because they want to shut down services... Stupid PR move from Nokia...

The funny thing is that those pple prefer to dl something from an obscure forum than picking the upstream version to download gratis in my place :-)

Just curious can you tell me this forum url , I will like to join and say it's ok guys you can steal me :) but I am here and open to existing ideas ... a localisation file would help too .... (or relay this sentence in Chinese )


Do you think publishing crapified version with ads could help ... I dont want to spend some time on this ad bizness but this could be an alternative ... so any experiences worth to be studied ... anyone ? any apps use ads ?

I am also wondering if this is affecting all nokia platforms : symbian etc
