Google Play Developer Account Creation

Ready Education will be upgrading multiple features in the product suite to offer customers the most up-to-date, innovative, and stable product. In order to take advantage of the latest releases and updates, it is required that the Android version of the Campus App is hosted in the institution's Google Play Developer Account. To publish Android apps on Google Play, you'll need to create a Google Play Developer account.

Use your institution’s Google Account and sign up for a Developer account here.

Click here for detailed instructions on how to register for a Google Play Developer account. After registering for the Google Play Account, you may be asked to Verify your ID with Google in order to publish apps to the Play Store. To verify your identity:

  • You need to upload a person’s ID (Driver's license, Passport, etc.) from the Google Play Console- that person can be anybody working at your institution
  • Having an unverified ID for your Google Play Developer account means the app can’t be published 
  • Having an unverified ID for your Google Play Developer account means the app transfer can't be complete 

For more information on submitting the document, please visit Verify your Identity on the dedicated Google support page.

For New App Accounts

The next steps involve granting required permissions for Ready Education to facilitate App Publishing, and are outlined in the Google Play Service Account Setup section.

For App Transfers

Once the Google Play Developer Account is created, a Transaction ID (order number) is available on the email from Google Payments (sent to the Account owner confirming the $25 registration fee payment). To find the transaction ID, search the target account owner's email inbox for the “developer registration fee.”

Please share the email address associated with Google Play Console and the above Transaction ID to the Ready Education Team in case of Android App Transfer.

For further help with this process, please submit a request at Ready Education Help Center.
