Connecting Your Google Play Account

  1. Allow Appfigures access to your Google Play account by clicking the following link:
  2. Log into your Appfigures Account
  3. Go to your Linked Accounts by clicking on your name (top right) and then on "Link Account"
  4. Click on "Link an Account"
  5. Select Google Play from the list of providers
  6. Enter the email address and password for your Google account
  7. Click on "Add"

Appfigures will now verify your information and connect your account. You may be asked to verify with Google during this process.

Once connected, your data will begin populating in the next few minutes.

Although your Google account may have access to non Google Play areas, Appfigures will only use the linked account to import sales data for your apps. To restrict access to only sales data we recommend creating a separate Google account with limited permissions, and using it instead of your main Google account.

This is completely optional, but if you'd like to do it this is how:

Creating a sub user in the Google Play Developer Console

You'll need to have admin privileges to continue with this process.

  1. tart by logging into your Google Play Developer Console. 
  2. Click on Settings → User Accounts & Rights
  3. Select Invite new user at the top of the page
  4. Give the sub-user and email that isn't your main email but you have access to.
  5. Set Access expiry date to Never
  6. Set the role to Finance. This role provides read-only access to reports without the ability to manage your apps or banking information. It's important to leave View app information checked and the Permission scope remains set to Global.
  7. Click on Send invitation

This is what the popup will look like:

Google will send an email to the address you provided. Follow the instructions in the email to complete the setup.

When setting up your password we suggest using a complex password since you won't really have to remember it after entering it into your Appfigures account.
