This guide looks very long at first glance, but that's just because every step is explained in detail with an image. It shouldn't take too long to complete!

Now that you've created your app with webtoapp.design you need a developer account for the Google PlayStore and/or Apple App Store to publish it. In this guide, I'll show you how to easily get the Google developer account and grant our team access to it, so we can upload your app.

Google Developer Account - For Publishing Android Apps in the PlayStore

Creating the Account

To get started, simply visit the signup page here: https://play.google.com/apps/publish/signup/

You might first need to sign into your Google account, or create one if you don't have one yet.

Afterwards, you need to fill in some information about you and your company. Please note that the 'Public Developer Name' will be shown in the PlayStore below your App's name. Typically, you use your company name here.

Once you've filled in the necessary information, you need to pay the $25 one-time registration fee. At the time of writing, this fee can only be paid using a credit or debit card, so make sure you have your card nearby.

After your payment has been processed, you're basically done with creating your account. Rarely you might need to verify your identity if Google mistakenly thinks your registration is suspicious. This is no reason to worry though, just follow through with the steps to verify your identity and then your account will be created.

Hi, I'm Jan. I have previously developed multiple apps for clients and my own projects, which have been downloaded thousands of times in the app stores. However, I decided I'd rather help out people with smaller budgets. That's why I created webtoapp.design, an affordable way to get an app if you already have a website.
