Dear All,

 

Did anyone got a clue what happened to account terminated.

 

I just receive an email with subject "Google Play Publisher account has been terminated."

 

There are no warning and explanation letter to inform you before your account termination. I feel disappointed but don't know what to do. My friend told me that there are no chance to get the account re-instated. So I should start my new google account or quit google play in future. I really don't know now.

 

I have do so many work for my education app and most of them is free of charge. The account terminated I should consider to stop doing anything with google now. Because It can't generate any money on this store. The competition is so keen and most of them are free of charge. 

 

Now they even terminate your account without explanation. I feel very disapointed to google. 

 

Is there anyone face this situation before?

 

I think invest time and money on google play store is wrong.

 

Karen

Google is famous for this with not just Google play but with Adsense. You can appeal this but chances are unless you make a very good case for your self they will not reinstate the account but because they don't give you a real reason for your specific termination how would you even know what to argue?

 

https://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/2491922?hl=en

 

From the link.

 

"We will only reinstate your Developer Console account if an error was
made and a re-review finds that your account is in good standing
because your applications do not violate our developer terms.

If you'd like to appeal, please walk through this troubleshooter for further instruction."

Hi, that's really big hit when they just permanently ban account. This is a result of Google-s "no moderation" publishing. if you are going to register new account:

1. Don't use the same credit card to pay $25 fee.

2. Don't use your main admob account for any of your Google Play apps, because they can terminate your admob/adsense account too if they think you are violating their policy (registering second account is already violation of their policy)

3. Sign your apps with different keystore

4. Good luck and be ready that your account can be terminated any time, because... google :)

To add the tips above, be sure to change/remove/not upload the same app(s) that were in violation. I'm assuming you probably know or can think of what the violation(s) are

Yes this is really crazy about them, They don't respect small developers. Please sign this petition in change.org so that we can try to push up things.

I also wrote this in the appeal form:

 

"I am not appealing the decision.
 
I simply want to know if my AdMob account will be terminated?
 
Thanks for your help."
