Hi

 

Many developers are looking for merchant accounts in South Africa. It's been asked for, for many years now. Why is this not made available in South Africa yet?

for google-play and merchant (wallet) 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, (android) developer,
or related issues.

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

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

otherwise, for merchant-center, google-shopping, advertising,
the current list of supported target-countries is outlined here --
https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/160637
google tends not to discuss future plans in the public forums.
