If you want to monetise your app by selling it in the Google Play Store, there are a few additional steps you have to follow. In this situation, AppMachine cannot publish your app automatically for you (as we usually do), because you need an additional Google Merchant account.
First thing to do, before you do anything else:
The first thing to do is to let us know that you want to set a price for your app by sending an email to email@example.com, with the following subject: "Google Play paid app - [appname] [appnumber]".
We will then start preparing your app, and uploading it to the Google Play Store. Once this is done, you only need to follow a few more steps, before your app will be visible in the Store.
You cannot convert an already published free app to a paid one, so make sure you let us know before you start publishing.
Wait for the status to change
Our app submission process is completed once your app has a "Published" state in your AppMachine dashboard.
You can find the status by navigating to the "Dashboard" of your app :
Now you are ready for the last steps :
