    You can add Sellbox to the Payment processors.

    Gamejolt supports web games as well
    Also, add to the PC marketplace list. It’s a pay-what-you want format, and they take a 10% cut

  4. stuckie says:

    You could also add Gameolith to the list. They’ll take Windows, Mac, Linux and Android.

    Just one day remaining, but the book giveaway for “Getting Started with Unity” can still go in the Opportunities and Contests section…
