A Google Developer Account allows you to publish your Android app under your own brand.
When do I need it and how much does it cost?
In case your purchased plan (Android Single App, Bundle Apps & Full Pack) includes an Android mobile app then you can choose whether we will upload it to your Google Developer Account or ours. In case you will not notify our team at: firstname.lastname@example.org , the Android app will be submitted on our own Google Developer Account right after the submission of the apps' information.
Creating your own Google Developer Account requires a one-time 25$ USD registration fee, a cost that must be paid directly to Google.

I can't find my Transaction ID
There are 2 ways of finding your transaction ID:
You can sign in to your Google Payments Account with the email of your Google Developer Account. Then, you have to go to the tab "Activity" and check out the "Google Play" which was the transaction for your payment of the Google Developer Account. Inside it, you will find the Transaction ID, which is a long query of numbers. Copy it and use it where necessary.
Alternatively, you can easily locate your transaction ID by navigating to your Google Wallet and logging in to your account. Once logged in, browse for your purchase or use the search function to locate it. After finding the order, click on it to open the transaction details page for the order. Look on the right side of the page for a ‘Transaction’ code. This is the Transaction ID for your order.
