In order to submit your app to the Google Play Store, a so-called developer account is required. You have to set this up yourself at Google. The developer account is associated with a one-time cost of $25.
1. Create a Google account
To create a Google Play Developer Account, you first need to create a Google Account. You can set this up via the following link: https://accounts.google.com/signup.

2. Create the developer account using Google Play Console
After creating the Google Account, please go to the Google Play Console. This is the platform where you create your Google Play Developer Account in order to publish Android apps. You can reach the Google Play Console via this link: https://play.google.com/apps/publish/signup/#.
In the next step, a payment method must be defined. To do this, fill in all the required data and follow the further instructions.
Done! With this step-by-step guide, you'll create your Google Developer account in no time.
