Office Store allowing developers to charge subscriptions for their apps

It’s not just Office that is increasingly moving to a subscription model.

Now third-party Office apps too will have the chance to do so.

Microsoft said today that it will start allowing developers to charge monthly recurring fees — basically, subscription pricing — for the apps they create for the Office Store.

Developers can begin submitting subscription apps in the seller dashboard this month. Office Store users can buy subscription apps starting in November.

The company also said the Office Store will begin supporting  Chinese, Russian, Dutch, Portuguese and Italian language apps. This comes alongside the planned opening in spring 2014 of Office Stores  in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Russia, Netherlands, Belgium, Brazil and Italy. (The Office Store is available to customers of the new Office and can be accessed within Office applications and via Office.com online.)

With the addition of those eight new localized storefronts, developers will be able to choose to distribute their apps to any of the 31 individual markets where the Office Store is available, or globally.

Microsoft says there are currently hundreds of business and productivity apps available in the Office Store, and customers have already downloaded more than 1 million apps.
