Becoming a Market Publisher tutorials


  • In the next section we’re going to examine the final steps of registering at the Android market and the process uploading your application.

  • Register as a publisher and setup your profile.

  • Read and agree to the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement.

  • Pay a registration fee of $25 USD via Google Checkout.

  • To publish applications on the Android Market, you must be a registered developer. Head over to  and sign in with your Google account. Next, fill out all the required information along with your real phone number, which Google will use to contact you in the event of an emergency or a problem with any of your Android applications. If you can’t decide on a developer name, don’t worry. Just use your real name for now :- you can always change that later via your profile page.

  • You should read the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement carefully, as you are required to accept the terms and you will be legally bound to them upon paying the registration fee. While you’re at it, take a look at the official Content Guidelines.

  • Click the Google Checkout button and pay the one-time registration fee and you’re done!


Uploading the Application

  • Login to your publisher account and click “Upload an Application”.

  • Fill in all of the form data and include screenshots if you can and provide a precise, short and well-formatted description.

  • You can also choose whether or not you want to release it as a free or paid app :- though you need to be a registered Google Checkout Merchant to do the latter and it’s currently only available in a handful of countries.

  • Lastly, click “Publish.” Now you have published the application on the android market.
