Google Play Changes Its Developer Payment Schedule

  • By Developer.com Staff

Google used to send payments to Google Play developers two days after a month ended. Now it has informed Android developers that it will not send out payments until the fifteenth of the following month. As might be expected, numerous developers have taken to online forums to complain about the delay to their checks.
