Unsupported Country for Merchant Registration - work around

[ Edited ]

Hello, 

I live in a country that does not support Merchant registration. However I do have a bank account in a country that does support Merchant registration. Is it permissible to setup a Merchant Account under the supported country?

 

Alternatively I have a brother that lives in a supported Merchant country. Is it permissible to use him as a "switching agent" whereby he will create the Merchant account under his details, I will send him the application APK file, he signs it and uploads it to the Play Store?

 

Many thanks

for issues related to google-play, simply post

the question to the google-play help forums --

or, for merchant-account issues related

to google-play, contact google directly --

https://support.google.com/payments/merchant/contactflow

 

this forum is for purchasing paid advertising

and the merchant-center to submit physical

inventory stock details for shopping-ads.
