Google just introduced merchant accounts in 12 more countries, allowing developers in those nations to sell paid apps in the Play Store, reports Android Police.

Here are the dozen new countries that can ship paid apps, or include in-app purchases as of today:

  • Bahrain
  • Bolivia
  • Bulgaria
  • Cyprus
  • Dominican Republic
  • Estonia
  • Honduras
  • Jamaica
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Malta
  • Panama

While Android users in these countries could already buy paid apps, developers had to rely on advertising and other revenue streams to monetize their products.

With the latest addition, Google Play now accepts apps from 152 countries, of which 74 can submit paid apps.
