Distribution to Google Play just got easier. The first step in the process is now shorter, so you no longer have to wait for Google's invitation. Registration is all you need.
Important: if you already requested an invitation but have NOT received a response from Google (Booksfirstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line ‘Invitation to the Google Play Books Partner Program’, then do not wait to restart the process by registering.
Take these steps to register your Google Play Books Publisher account (for this, you will need a Google account):
Open the Google Play Books Partner Center and click on the ‘Get started button’.
Log in to your Google account. (If you don't have one, register with the 'Create account' button. Read more here.)
Fill out the form with the following:
- Choose a publisher type: Self-published author/Publisher (mandatory)
- Add your legal name at Publisher name (mandatory)
- Add the country where your primary bank is located at Country section (mandatory)
- Website (optional)

- Click on the Next button.
Choose your email preferences and read the Terms of Service then click on the ‘I Agree’ button.
Your Partner Center account is live! Now, continue the process on the PublishDrive platform here.
Next task: Provide your Google Play Books Partner Center account information - this will enable us to match your Google Play Publisher Account to your PublishDrive account. After that, confirm PublishDrive to handle your Google Play Books account. Find more info on this here.
