So, I’m trying last two days to register another developer account, using non-personalized visa credit card. I registered two accounts already with those cards (different ones of course). Now, I’ve tried yesterday to register one account in virtual machine using VPN and I got this message:
THE PAYMENT FOR THE REGISTRATION FEE HAS FAILED. In order to access your account, you need a successful registration fee payment.
We were unable to verify your account information.
Today I tried with different card, new one, and the same thing. What’s the problem? Maybe VPN? Or virtual machine?
AFAIK , Google use the AVS to verify the cards used for payment ,
thank means the card you are using have to be registered with your name and address at its issuer ,
So even though the card is valid and loaded Google may not accept it if the AVS failed .
haha lol. @billyh i think it’s legal to have multiple google play dev account(as i saw in some google dev discussion)
the reason that this guy use a VPN is to lower the risk of getting banned both accounts together.
as we all know google suspend developers for stupid reasons(unlike apple) without giving warnings. and they don’t even bother to mention the reason. once you got banned, it’s a dead end. there is no way to complain.
so it’s totally natural that developers lowering their risks by creating multiple or backup accounts. i think google is somehow responsible for this.
Yes. When I publish an app they allow it. Then I publish another one, and another one. and I have for example 10 of them. Then after a month they delete 3 of them, and cause of multiple violations I got my account banned. My case. That’s not fair. They allowed my apps. If they deleted the problematic app in the first place with proper reason I would now what’s wrong and be more carreful. But no, they wait for you to publish more apps and then by random guess they delete 3 of them.
I had an app deleted cause of spam. But there was no spam. I copied the description from a popular app that’s been a long time around, without keywords on the bottom. Also, all my apps had the same description. But they only deleted one. Just random.
