First Khalti , then IME Pay now Esewa  – What could have happened?

A lot of our viewers expressed their concern regarding the disappearance of two leading digital wallets from Google Playstore. About two months back, Khalti and Ime pay also faced similar issues with Google and now eSewa has become the victim. Even though the application is designed keeping Google’s policies in mind, Google is subjected to change its policies time-to-time. So, a minor change might create massive issues for the developers. Therefore, the team should stay updated on the rules and policies time-to-time in order to avoid facing these disasters.

Anything may be the reason but if you are a developer and if you publish the app then please be careful with the following things :
1) Care about your privacy policy and terms and conditions
2) Care while putting your advertisement
3) Follow the policy of the play store or app store
4) Share your correct login details if the app can’t be accessed without a login id.
Please share your thought if you are also a developer.
