Developers who have apps which appeal to the Amazon Coins program could start to see a considerable increase in revenues.
Amazon Coins, released last year, allow Amazon customers to buy Android apps and in-app items at a discount of up to 10%.
Now, with the expansion of the program, Kindle Fire owners in these countries will receive 500 free Coins automatically and users of the Amazon Appstore on Android phones will receive 500 Coins if they update the client and download an app. With this major giveaway of free Coins, now is the time to submit new apps to the Amazon Appstore and get involved.
For Developers to benefit from the expansion of the program, they need to have an app available on the Appstore and available for distribution to customers in France, Italy and Spain.
