To collect the earnings you made from selling your apps, you first have to set your payout account. Your payout account has to be set up via the Payout page in the Developer Console. An external Payment Service Provider (PSP) that we recommend you get onboarded with is Deutsche Bank. Deutsche Bank enables worldwide bank transfers (DB Wire Transfer) and facilitates payments in various countries. Please make sure this step has to be completed before you can start to sell apps.
Note: If you want to offer trial licenses for your app only, there is no need to set up a payout account.
Note: You must set up a payout account with Deutsche Bank if you plan to offer subscription licenses for your app.
|In case you want to set up your payout account with your credit card, you can use Stripe™ till the end of this year. At the end of the year, payment setup via Stripe™ will be discontinued, and Deutsche Bank will begin accepting credit card payments. Additional details about setting up a payout account with Stripe™ can be found in Getting started as a seller: Stripe™.|
