Here is everything you need to know to distribute your books on Google Play:
- If you are registered as a company (i.e. publisher), you must activate a Google Partner account to sell your books on Google Play. To do so, simply write to email@example.com providing us with the link to your publishing house's website, and we'll take care of everything :)
- If you have registered with StreetLib as an individual (i.e. selfpublisher), you do not need to contact us to activate Google Play distribution. Your books will be automatically sold on the store as with any other store.
In both cases, you will be assigned a Google code:
If you are registered as a company, we’ll add your Google code once your Google Partner account is activated;
If you are registered as an individual, you will be automatically assigned your Google code as soon as you sign up.
Whichever your situation, you’ll be able to see your Google code in Management>Publishers.
This code is very important:
you can create as many publishers as you want in StreetLib Publish, but remember to add your Google code to each one. This ensures all the books you want to sell on Google Play will be available on the store.
