    Chinese market

    My app has trial and full version, english interface. I can see from reports that there are downloads from all around the world countries but not from China. What do I need to set up in submission to make it available for Chinese market? do I need also localisation?
    And extra question:
    Is there any profit to sell on China market at all? The reason why I'm asking it because from one hand I can see ovi nice statistics that China is in top 15 countries http://blogs.forum.nokia.com/blog/ovi-publisher-alert , but from other hand for example India is also in top 15 and I get huge amount of trial downloads from this country (60% of all downloads) but there is only 3 downloads from India users for full version :-) So, if some of you has experience with selling in China - is it worth to focus marketing on this country?

    Yeah, what is up with China? I have the same situation: 99.6% passed and 0.4% pending (China) and it has been like this for quite a while. I believe my last app about two months ago had the same situation.

    Re: Chinese market

    My game passed QA but failed "mainland China". I got a mail with instructions to how to proceed in case I want to publish in mainland China. I believe this doesn't apply to all apps/games, since it said "Recently, our QA team failed some contents for China distribution, this is because of the limitation of OviStore commercial launch in China."

    Re: Chinese market

    There are a few funnies in China:
    a) Games -> No Go
    b) Some devices -> not supported, so they get stuck forever

    HOWEVER: You get but 2 or 3 cents on an Euro sold in China. So there is not much to loose there IMHO...

    You need to go via a distributor who takes even more revenue from you.

    So, in practice, it is next to senseless to do so.
