What are some Pro Tips you should know about?
Pro Tip 1: Changing your developer name
You can change your developer name at any time from the “Settings” section in your Google Play Console. Note: If you change your developer name, the URL to your account will not change.
Pro Tip 2: You can charge for your apps
If at any point you want to charge for your app(s) you can link your Google Merchant account from the “Settings” section in your Google Play Console.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you’ve already published an app as free, you cannot charge for it afterwards. Instead, Google requires a new app be published and the charge be set before it has been published.
