In order to publish apps to the Google Play market, you must sign up as a Google Play developer. This article will walk you through the steps of setting up your account.
Before You Begin
- Creating a Google Play Developer account requires that you have a traditional Google account available. Make sure you have created a Google account (https://accounts.google.com/SignUp).
How to Set-up Your Google Play Developer Account
1. Go to the Google Play Developer Console <https://play.google.com/apps/publish/signup/> and sign up for an account.
3. Pay the registration fee for your account.
There is a $25 USD one-time registration fee that you can pay with the following credit or debit cards
- American Express
- Discover (U.S. only)
- Visa Electron (Outside of the U.S. only)
Note: The types of cards accepted may vary by location.
App Creation: Next Steps
Once you've set-up and configured your account, you can create a Google Play app and find your Google Play License Key. This key is tied to your branded Mag+ Android app and is entered in the Mag+ Publish portal prior to building your app. See the article "Android - Creating an App in the Google Play Developer Console" for more information.
