How To Publish An App To The Google Play Store

Mobile app development company spent countless hours developing an app they think will be the next big thing, and now they are ready to show it off to the world. The first step in getting your app on people’s phones?

You guessed it—uploading it to “the google play store app”.

Most Android app development company start by publishing their apps on the Google Play Store because it makes it easy to get your app in front of potential customers. However, publishing an app on the Play Store isn’t as simple as just uploading it and then expecting instant success; there are many steps you need to take before you can publish your app.

Steps to Upload App on Play Store

Steps to Upload App on Play Store

Here are steps to follow:-

1. Set Up an Account on The Developer Console

The Google Developer Console is where you set up your app on Google Play, and it’s where you’ll have to go back and make changes if you want them reflected on your app page. So, before you even upload your app, set up an account. It’s pretty straightforward—enter your name, email address, password, company name (if applicable), and country or region. Once that’s done, log in and click Add new application.

2. Create a Wallet Merchant and Link it To Your Developer Account

Once you’ve built your app, log in to your developer account and go to Wallet Merchant Settings. Click on Add a new merchant and give it a name that makes sense, along with a location, phone number, etc.

A merchant account is necessary to receive money made by users either by downloading the app or making in-app purchases. All money made by the users will be sent to the merchant account.

Now that you have a merchant set up, creating an application specific to your payments profile is time. From your developer account, click on Payments, then choose Add Payment Method from the options at the top left of the screen.

3. Create an Application

Before you start, it’s worth noting that developing a native app is one of the more complex processes. If you want your app to be accepted into the Google Play apps store,

Here’s what you should do:

  • Choose All Applications from the menu.
  • Press the Add an Application button.
  • Find the language you want from the drop-down menu.
  • Add the title of your app with a maximum of 30 characters.
  • You can upload your apps to Google Play Store in two ways. You can either upload an App Bundle file or update your store listing.

4. App Store Listing

The first step is to enter your app information to publish it on the Google Play Store. You can do this now or save your work as a draft and come back to it later. It is necessary to create just the right app profile for your business.

Include the title of the app, a description of it, and a detailed account of the functionality it provides.

Embed app screenshots, videos, icons, landing page graphics, and more.

Assign your app to the relevant category and type.

Provide your contact information so users can contact you. It is necessary to include an email address, but you can also add your phone number and website.

5. Set Your App’s Content Rating

To pass a questionnaire and avoid having the app marked as ‘Unrated’ and at risk of being removed, find the Rating section in the left-side menu.

The information you provide on the questionnaire should be accurate, and any misrepresentation of your app’s content may lead to its suspension or removal from the Play Store.

  • Make sure to click Save Questionnaire once you’re done with the survey.
  • Click on the rating to recalculate it.
  • In the end, click Apply Rating to confirm the rating and continue with the pricing and distribution process.

Uploading your apps to google play store will require you to set its content rating. Once you’ve submitted your app, it will go through a review process that takes between one and seven days. If everything is good, you should receive an email notifying you that your application has been approved!

6. Set Pricing and A Distribution Plan

Now we are moving on to the last few steps of publishing an app on the Play Store. You can make it a Paid or Free app. Google Play lets you change from a paid app to a free one later, but not from a free app to a paid one.

Therefore, consider your pricing model before finalizing it.

Once you’ve done that, choose the countries in which you want your app to be available for distribution. You can make your app available in all countries or limit it to only certain countries. On the other hand, you can select a specific Android device or program for your app.

7. Deleting Your Existing Public Version Before Uploading A New App Bundle File

If you want to upload a new App Bundle file with a different version code, you must first delete your existing public version from the store. If you don’t do that, users might install both versions at once or get some app error when installing your new App Bundle file.

Once you’ve deleted your current public version and published your new App Bundle file, make sure you add a note in all relevant app stores, including Google Play Store so users know what happened and why they might have an older version of your app installed.

How much does it cost to publish an app on Google Play

A one-time fee of $25 gives a developer an account with access to all functions and control features. Once you pay the one-time fee, you can upload apps to the Google Play Store for free.
