Hi guys,

So far I know that Google Play does not publish their contents in some certain markets, especially China. However, China is a huge market for these types of apps/games. I have already tried to publish some of my apps/games on different Chinese stores. Because of the language issue, I won't be able to publish them.

Do you guys know any Chinese stores that have English? Also, which ad networks are the best for the Chinese market (I'm doing Admob + Facebook + Unity Ads)? I heard these ad networks are quite low in China.

Thanks!!
P/S: It would be nice if @Martin helps us here. I watched a lot of your videos on YouTube, but this is my first post in the forum.

For Android China market is very very hard to knock in, unlike there is apple store in China, google isn't available there, also the chinese android market is divided into many separated store (Baidu, 360, WanDouJia, Tencent these are the biggest ones), you will need to register as a local company or have some PRC ID to register as each store's developer

Even you become the developer, still you will need localization work, most chinese player will just ignore english app unless you got some big IP like Candy Crush or Clash of Clan or Minecraft

As far as I know all network you mentioned, only Admob works in China, otherwise you will just need to find some local advertiser to implement their own SDK into your game

I think Google Play just recently opened up in China. How many devices it's on though is hard to know. I think maybe right now it's not on many devices in China, but now that it's there, it probably will be on a lot of future devices.

Thanks guys for the information. I just realized that my current apps/games are allowed to post in China and some other restricted countries before. However, the old ones are not allowed!!

 

And it seems like the alternative Android markets are too complicated and hard to get in. Hope they will be open for other indies soon!

For Android China market, even though there is a news shows that Google will coming back to China, But....hehe, Google is still NOT available, we must via VPN to get the informations from google service
Chinese app stores aren't very selective and will take almost any app. For every store, however, you must perform the proper integration with the app stores, billing services, analytics services, etc. to be fully functional.
There are many elements to publishing on Chinese app stores, if you wana get more info about distribute apps to China, you may email contact@andfex.cn.
