Creating Your Own Android Developer Account - Before June 2015


Due to new policies put forth by the Google Play store, all Android apps must now live under their own individual developer account instead of the unified DWNLD developer account. 

No sweat! We'll walk you through the simple steps of getting your account set up so we can transfer your app (including your app name, design, and users) to your own account. 

Step 1: Navigate to this page to sign up for a Google Developer account. If you already have a Google account (for Gmail and other apps), you can use that to set up your developer account. Otherwise, you'll need to first create a Google account, which is simple. 

Step 2: Accept the Google Play agreement and click "Continue to Payment"

Step 3: Use a valid credit card to pay the $25 one-time developer fee. 

Step 4: Fill out your developer profile

Step 5: Once inside the console, click the "Invite Co-Workers to the Developer Console" link pictured below: 

Step 6: Click the "Invite New User" button

Step 7: Invite the user and set permissions to "Admin"

Step 8: Navigate to this form and let us know your transaction ID, developer name, and the email address you used to create the account

Your transaction ID can be found in the confirmation email you get from the Google Play store for your $25 payment. It should look like one of these:

  • 01234567890123456789.token.0123456789012345
  • 0.G.123456789012345
  • registration-1234ab56-7c89-12d3-4567-8e91234567f8

Your developer name was the name you chose during the signup process.

Your email address is the address you receive your confirmation email at.
