 What kind of current percentage of refunds are developers typically seeing
on the market? More than a 5%?



Current Percentage of Refunds on Android Market?

For my $0.99 game (which does not have a free demo version available
yet), the current refund rate for orders that are passed the refund
deadline (so they have either been charged or refunded) is 43%.

Obviously there have been major reliability problems with the Market
this weekend and many of those people may have requested a refund
because their download failed, so it's too early to draw any

Current Percentage of Refunds on Android Market?

 For me, maker of "The Gube", a $0.99 app, the cancellation rate is
about 33%. It has been hovering between 25% and 35%.
But my app has been in the market for only a few days. So, i don't
know how reliable this statistic is. :-)

I just wanted to update this thread in case someone reads this old
message in the archives and is scared away from the platform by the
43% figure. In the last week my return rate has been around 11%. I
have added a demo version now, so presumably that accounts for some of
the difference.

 For what is worth I am seeing about 40% cancellation. About 75% of
those cancellations are within 2 mins of the authorization so I assume
those are mainly download issues.

1. Help - Gecoding is failing on a regular basis - does anyone else notice this?


In my app, I call the geocoder to get lat,long pairs for zip codes.
This has worked
great for over a year.

However, recently I notice that sometimes as many as 8 out of 10 calls
to get a location
fail - and by fail I mean they return empty lists. However, sometimes
it works.

This is not the same issue as the emulator failure to geocode using
API 8. this is
on the actual device.

Has anyone who relies on the geocoding API noticed this?
