Question: How do Chinese tech startups monetize their apps?

How are Chinese apps offered on such a massive scale to monetize, given that almost everyone in China loves freeware and only buy into that model, so much that if you start charging people will switch to other competitor/free alternatives? (even if there isn’t one, one will come out so soon thanks to the extremely short production cycle)
