Trying to set up merchant account but do not have business website

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

How can I fill in all the details required on the merchant account sign up page? I'm a single person who wants to sell a game on the Play store. I don't have a business nor do I want to set one up unless the game sells. I don't have the money to set up a company or want to do all the paperwork for nothing.

Also what goes in the filed where you have to type in what appears on the credit card statement?

"merchant account ... wants to sell a game on the Play store"

unfortunately, this forum is for

merchant-center-account issues --

not merchant-accounts.

a google-merchant-center-account is for submitting physical
inventory data for (google-shopping) product-listing-ads --
and has nothing whatever to do with a merchant-account for
selling apps on google-play.

a google-checkout-merchant-account (merchant-account) is for selling apps.

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

for merchant (checkout) account issues, google may be contacted here --
https://support.google.com/checkout/sell/answer/3098749?hl=en#contact=1
be certain to emphasize exactly what types of apps are
being sold and for which devices (chrome, android, etc.).
