Question Register Google Merchant Account from supported country for other developers, get %s

Hi, I am interested have anyone tried such deals? Is there any experienced users/developers?
The point is, that I can't register merchant account from my country and it means that I can't sell anything in google play. PayPal can't receive money in my country also. So I am currently using admob in my application which gives me less than 1$ for month
Many users writed in their reviews, that they want to donate money and support me, but there is no easy ways for that. For example many developers using strategy of selling "donated" apps on google play. So I think, that someone can register merchant account in supported country with his address and credit card, then attach it to my developer account. If there will be some money, then for example 10% of revenue will keep that user, and 90% will send to me via bank transfer for example.
Is there any experience related to this?
And have anyone tried to attach other user's merchant account to his own developer account?

Also we can create some community for this with users/developers from supported countries and developers from unsupported countries.

Interesting. I'm sure this would work if you could find the right person to work with. Though, have you tried using a proxy to create a developer account? (So, that Google servers would think you were in a different country).

You say PayPal can't receive money in your country, but I believe AdMob can deposit funds directly to a bank account (this is how I have it set up). Or, there are many other ad networks out there with possibly even more payment options.

I have a few developer accounts for when I was working at different places. And, as an experiment, I was able to create one of them with a Visa gift card to pay the $25 fee. The merchant account is still tied to the developer account via the email address used, but in the merchant account settings it is possible to add account access and change bank information.

Well, I think is the best alternative payment gateway for your business. They offer free account setup services to merchant.
