does "merchant account" mean a google-checkout-merchant-account --

to sell apps -- or a google-merchant-center-account -- to submit your

physical inventory data for (google-shopping) product-listing-ads?

 

generally, for product-listing-ads, the merchant-center-account is free --

and requires no payment (bank account) whatsoever -- only the (linked)

adwords-account requires a form of payment (credit-card, bank account).

 

a google (checkout) merchant-account -- mainly

for selling apps -- is an altogether separate service.

I'm planning to sell apps so I'm guessing I should use a google checkout merchant account, but is this available in canada and can i just link this to my personal bank account. Plus do you have any additional information about this checkout merchant account?

the following link should help explain google-checkout-merchant,
google-wallet, google-play, and selling digital goods (apps) --
https://support.google.com/checkout/sell/answer/3080449?hl=en

google may be contacted here --

be certain to emphasize exactly what types of apps are
being sold and for which devices (chome, android, etc.).

unfortunately, this forum has nothing whatever to
do with google-merchant-accounts for selling apps.
