Search giant, Google has now come out with a new strategy with regard to its payment modes. An email was sent out by Google to all its developers regarding the same hinting that the company is planning something to do with the upcoming version Google Wallet. The new version lets users maintain a balance in the wallet, aptly termed Wallet balance.
Google had taken the opportunity to inform all its play store partners, the developers about the transition of payment modes. Google has reportedly changed the payment date from 2 of every month to 15. This change in payment dates is in view of new payment methods that Google is planning to implement. The new payment dates will also allow the company to hold on to payments for a pretty long time, which ultimately benefits the company. Reports about the new payment methods are not available at the moment and are expected to be released soon.
A few developers have apparently been expressing their disdain over Google's new stand. The outrage, in reality, was for the language, used by the company, to convey to its developers, its new payment policy. Google in its email informed its developers that this payment policy will allow them to serve their users better and create more revenue opportunities for themselves.
In reality, this payment shift is going to affect small developers to a larger extent and will cause no benefit as they have to wait 2 weeks longer for payment. There is nothing more than speculation at this point, but a better explanation is expected to come from the company.
