Link a Google Play developer account to your payments profile

To sell paid apps and in-app purchases on Google Play, you need to set up a profile in the Google payments center. After you create a payments center profile, it's automatically linked to Play Console. You can then manage app sales, view sales reports, receive payments from sales, and more.

Note: If you've previously set up a payments profile or Merchant Center account, it's already linked to Play Console.

To link Play Console to a payments profile:

  1. Open Play Console.
  2. Click Download Reports  > Financial.
  3. Select Set up a merchant account now.
  4. Type your business information to complete the setup.

After you've set up your payments profile, make sure that your apps are sold using the proper tax for your location.

If you aren't located in any of the supported locations for merchants and don't own the required bank account for receiving payments, Google may not be able to pay for the sales in that account by any other means.

You can link a Play Console and payments profile only once. After they're linked, they can't be unlinked or changed. If you need to unlink them or make changes, you'll need to sign up for a new developer account using a new payments profile, pay another registration fee, and transfer any existing apps to the new developer account.
