Charge for Apps (What will Happen?)

 What happens to free apps when Android opens up the "paying"
marketplace?  In other words, if my app is free and I want to change
it to "charge" , what will happen?

Will all users who have the free app be able to use it still?

Also, has anyone tried the current 3rd party "pay" sites that let you
charge for your Android Apps?

Do they work well?

 No plans on the implementation of charging have been released.

The Marketplace T&Cs state you can't charge for content users have 
obtained for free, so the user who have the free apps will still have 
the free apps and any attempt to charge for them will probably see your 
Market account suspended.

If you're looking to use a 3rd party payment system with Market you'll 
most likley see your application suspended

2. Google Market cancelling orders

All of a sudden, since the Market underwent it's recent multiple
country expansion, I'm seeing, on  a fairly regular basis,
cancellations with a subject:

"Order XYZZY has been cancelled by Google"

With an explanation that boils down to:

"...because we were unable to verify that buyer's account

So far it's all been with customers' billing addresses in S. Korea?

Wondering if any other developers with paid apps are seeing an
increase in these types of cancellations and if they are clustered to
any particular country?
