European Android devs complain of missing Google Play payouts
Google was meant to have paid studios all cash generated from their titles on the newly rebranded marketplace through Google Wallet at the start of the month.
However, scores have claimed the money is yet to be deposited in their bank accounts.
"Developers are usually paid on the 2nd of the month, arriving in bank accounts between 5th and 7th," a well placed industry source told us.
"All have been marked as 'paid' on the 2nd, but not received so far. Most people have contacted Google Merchant team but nobody has had anything other than an automated response so far and there's no comment from Google on the forum thread dedicated to this problem."
Phandroid reports developers using Google's AdMob and AdSense are also reporting problems with payouts, though Google is yet to acknowledge the problem even exists publicly, let alone proffer a solution.
"There are lots of indie developers with cash-flow problems, and lots of disappointment at being treated this way by Google," our source added.
Most of the developers involved are located within Europe Portugal, France, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK a few territories popping up repeatedly though one developer from the US claims he's yet to receive payments owed to him from January.
