 According to Rory Cellan-Jones from the BBC who is currently at a 
T-Mobile dev forum it looks like paid apps on Market will start being 
rolled out in the UK tomorrow.

 Thanks for the update Al.

Sidenote:

I don't understand this whole region specific paid app thingy. If a
company/developer are not able to sell apps worldwide online, then what use
is the platform?

take care,
Muthu Ramadoss.

 I'm pretty sure it's the joys of various legal systems.

There are some regions where it's illegal to sell certain types of 
content, content supporting certain ideas, or allow certain comments to 
be made in public (e.g. "incitement to racial hatred" is a criminal 
offence in the UK so Google needs a way of removing racist comments, 
anything showing Nazi symbols is illegal in Germany, etc.). Also various 
regions have various laws in relation to selling stuff which also need 
to be complied with (e.g. In the UK goods have to be "Of reasonable 
quality and fit for purpose" otherwise the customer is legally entitled 
to a refund).

The only other theory for the slow roll-out I've heard is that it's for 
testing purposes, but given the number of problems with downloads 
stalling and copy protection that still exist I don't give that idea 
much weight.

I find it amusing/annoying that Google are spending time and effort 
slowly rolling out the market to various regions, but don't support 
showing the customers prices in their native currency. To me it shows a 
lack of understanding of business to consumer sales.

Al.

 This is good news to hear... no UK sales for me yet, so i am not sure
how it will all work... I am still just confused about the tax
situation.... Google checkout does not allow us to specify a tax rate
for UK purchases.  Hopefully the details on this will be made clear
soon

 I was surprised to see some UK sales for my app, since i thought it
would be april when UK customers could be apps from the app-store.
But, i like it!:)

However, all the sales i had from the UK had their credit cards
declined. I don't know if this is a symptom of a problem or just
coincidence.

 They were just coincidences. :=) I just had a UK sale with a
successful credit-card verification.

 The problem with US customers getting declined on purchases in GBP is at;

 http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Android +Market/thread?tid=5d08f29aeb3d9706&hl=en

in a post by "jarkman".

It sounds like this is a two way problem. I'm not entirely surprised, I 
used to run the technical ops for a credit card processing company in 
the UK and some sudden small USD authorisations on a card that is rarely 
used in the US would trigger all manner of anti-fraud measures at the 
card issuing bank.

That's interesting. In my UK Checkout account settings "Tax setup" I
can set the VAT for each EU country individually. If that's not
possible for US Checkout accounts then I guess Checkout expects US
sellers exporting to the EU to use the merchant calculations API to
specify the tax manually.

Obviously us Android sellers can't use that API so I think this would
need to be fixed pretty urgently!

 This is not scientific whatsoever, but looking at my sales-report on
google-checkout, all the names on the sales from the UK have their
names preceeded with titles. All start with MR or MS, etc. None of the
USA sales have that. :-)
