How to Create a Google Play Developer Account

A step-by-step guide on how to create your Google Play account and enroll in the Developer Program for your Android app(s). The Google Play Developer Program is what gives you the ability to make your app available on the App Store for Android users. The good news is, because the app will exist under your account, you will have more control.

Before you begin you will need:

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 log in with your Google Login.
  2. Select to create a developer account for “An Organization or Business”
  3. Enter information about your organization. Developer Name will be the one that will show up to users and your Organization name will be the legal name (they can be different).
  4. Agree to Terms & click “Create Account and Pay”
  5. Pay for the account.
  6. Verify Your ID. After paying, you will get a confirmation that your account is created. But, this is not yet complete. Now on the screen you will see an option to complete details to verify the account. It looks like below. You will need to click on "Verify ID"
  7. Verify ID - Upload Organization Documents. As an organization you will need to verify the Organization Details. After you click on verify ID, you will get a screen that says you need to have someone from the company who can submit the company documents. Click on Begin Verification (see below).
  8. Upload Organization Identity. You will be asked to upload company documents AND/OR personal identification documents (like a government-issued ID). Do so and submit. You should get a confirmation telling you that Verification is in Process.
