Publishing Paid Application
The VeriFone Developer Central portal now enables developers to set the price of their applications while submitting the applications on the Developer Central Portal. The developers who have affiliated their bank accounts to their developer accounts can publish the paid applications via the Developer Central Portal. Bank account details are needed to pay the developer the revenue from the application sale, at monthly basis.
The developer can set up their bank accounts and affiliate the same to their developer account from the company section in the developer account. Under My Company information page, the developer can find the setup bank account option on the page. Click on the Add bank account button to add the bank account information and click on submit button to affiliate the account with the developer account.
Once the bank account is setup the developer is ready to publish the paid application via his developer account. Developer needs to navigate to the Apps section and needs to fill the form as per the form wizard. The step Price & Distribution is where the developer can set the price of his application. Currently VeriFone offers three different pricing models: free, one time purchase and monthly subscription. For free applications the developers needs to pay Verifone a monthly placement fee for offering the application free of charge in the marketplace.
