Google Play Books prices differently based on the territory. It uses agency and wholesale pricing. PublishDrive takes care of pricing for you. We seamlessly integrate price matching engines of other stores just for your book. (P.s. Agency pricing is when authors and publishers give a fixed price of their book to retailers. Wholesale pricing is when retailers have the right to offer the book cheaper for their own royalty.)
