Making a Paid game free on Amazon / Google

Just a couple of questions:
Are we able to change our games from paid to free (and back) on Amazon in the same way as we can with itunes? Or do Amazon have to approve this?

Also, on Google Play - once we change a game to free will it forever be free? Or is there a way around this?

Thanks in advance...

    I believe on Amazon you can - the control panel allows you to change the price info.
    The only thing you need to be aware of is that the app must be set a whatever price setting it is on other platforms. You cannot make it paid on Amazon and free on iTunes (they do not like that).
    Google also can be changed for sure...if you can't do it thru the control panel account you would be able to if you make a new version.

    It depends if Amazon allows you to change the price. They review the price change and decide if they want to change it. Sure, you can say you want to change it, but they might decline your changed price.

    I've tried it - And emailed them 2 weeks later on the matter. My price hadn't changed.
    They replied and said that I needed to review the terms of service as they decide the price of the app.

    Ok, well I've changed my app price to free on both Google and Amazon.
    I'm now wondering how you monitor daily download numbers of a free app on Google, the developer console only appears to show paid downloads - unless I'm missing something. Anyone know?

    No, it shows all installs of your app, free and paid.
