How to sell a book on Google Play: a checklist

Step 1. Create an account

New publisher sign-ups in the Google Play Books Partner Center are temporarily closed.

Quick steps

  1. If you don't already have one, create a new account at
  2. Agree to the Google Books Terms and Conditions and the Google Editions Addendum.

To sell books on Google Play, you'll need to join the Google Books Partner Program. This will give you access to the Google Play Books Partner Center, where you can manage your book catalog and payment settings.

Not all countries are eligible to sell books on Google Play. The Google Editions Addendum won't be available unless you're in one of these countries, but we're working hard to expand internationally, so please check back later if you can't participate at this time.

Detailed steps

  1. Go to and either sign in using an existing Google Account, or create a new account.
  2. Provide account details and contact information, then click Continue.
  3. Review the Google Books Terms and Conditions and the Google Editions Addendum. (These may be presented to you in a single combined document, the Google Books and Google Play Agreement.) If you accept these terms, indicate this with the appropriate selections.
  4. Click Continue.

Go to the Partner Center

If you already have an account but you've forgotten the password, please visit the Google Account Recovery page.
