Step 3: Store listing

You will then land on the Store listing screen. Note that the info that your app will appear with on the Play Store depends on your input in the section Product Details.

That’s why you have to stick to the guidelines of the uploads to realize a successful publish. Check this Google article to get more information on how to do it.

Don’t forget to click Save Draft at the bottom right of your screen after you finish this step.

 
 
Enter your app
 
 
 
 
 
 

Step 4: App releases

Go to App Releases on the left menu. Here comes the role of the APK file you have saved in the first step. When going for the Production track, your app becomes ready to publish – without prior testing. So click on Manage. Then tap on Create Release once you get in, and choose to Continue to upload your nandbox-APK file.

 
 
Click on Manage at the Production track.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Step 5: Content rating

Go to the Content rating on the left menu to follow the rating system of Google Play. It aims at delivering trustable ratings to your app’s users. Thus, true and presentable information while filling in the questionnaire is essential.

 
 
Enter the email address on which you want to receive the user
 

Step 6: Pricing & distribution

Pricing and distribution is the final basic step. There, you have to set your app’s pricing and select which countries you want your app to reach. Read the Android Content Guidelines before checking the boxes of the Consent section. The same you will have to do with the US export laws.

Click Ready to publish as a final action before launching your app on the Google Play Store.

 
 
Select the countries you want your app to reach.
