Your Apps on Google Play

The most visited store in the world for Android apps. Cloud-connected and always synced, it's never been easier for users to find and download your apps...

It’s quick and easy to register and begin distributing your apps on Google Play.

Before you begin

There is a one time $25 registration fee charged for a Google Play Developer Console account. We charge this fee to encourage higher quality products on Google Play (ie. less products with SPAM).

You must be located in a supported country to distribute apps on Google Play. There are additional requirements to sell your apps on Google Play, covered later in this guide.

Registering as a Developer

  1. Log in to the Google account that will act as the Account Owner for your Developer Account.
  2. Visit the Google Play Developer Console signup page to begin registration.
    During registration, you must accept Google Play Developer Distribution Agreement to continue. If your account has previously been in violation of this agreement, you cannot register as a Google Play Developer.
  3. Pay the registration fee using a valid Google Wallet payment method.
  4. Fill out your account details, including your Developer Name. This is the name that is displayed on the Google Play store.

Please note that it may take up to 48 hours for your Google Play Developer Console registration to be fully processed.

Collaborate with your team

As the Account Owner, enable access and roles for project contributors in the Google Play Developer Console. The users you invite do not need to pay a Developer Registration Fee to use the Developer Console.

In order to access any integrated reporting that is not hosted in the Google Play Developer Console, your users must be granted access to those individual systems. This includes Google Wallet Merchant accounts, Google Analytics, and Google Play Game Services.
