From the Vendor portal click manage products on the left & click the pencil icon application that you want to go paid.  That should bring you to the product info page, about half way down there is a price option with varios options to choose from, you can also edit the description of your app on the description tab  once you're finished editing click save & the changes will be submitted for approval which can take a few days

Re: Change Free app to Paid App

There is no way for you as a vendor to change from Free to Paid.  You can Change the price of a Paid app all you wnat and go from Paid to Free, but nto Free to Paid.  Blackberry has the power to do this for you, and if you e-mail vendor support and give a good supporting argument they may change it for you.  Although, keep in mind if you do chagne it any users who downloaded it when it was free will be forced to pay if you submit and update once the price is changed.

Re: Change Free app to Paid App

Because of the restrictions noted by others above, you may be best off simply creating a new product in the vendor portal, and configuring that to be a paid version of the same app. Depending on your goals with this, that might suit you just fine, and it's technically simpler than any alternative.
