Do I need Merchant Account

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'm in the process of finishing (75% complete) my game using unity, and then I would like to sell it on the play store (I have a developer account for my free apps created in android studio), I've not got a website for the game etc, just the game so far, what do I have to do to accomplish this?

 

I'm aware of the merchant account, but as it looks/uses a website address I'm unsure what do for the future when I need to get it released.

 

Thanks

for google-play and merchant (wallet/payment) account
issues,, the google-play forum is currently here --
https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/play

this forum is for purchasing advertising, for selling physical goods --
not for selling apps, google-play, merchant/wallet, or related issues.

the merchant-center and google (play) payments-merchant-center-account,
have nothing whatever to do with each other; their names are simply very
similar and are therefore often confused.

one is for paid-ads and advertising -- while the
other is for (apps) payment or purchase-flows.
