My friend and I are dipping our toes into html5 game development and looking to release on multiple platforms. One of those platforms is the Chrome Web store. Digging through their FAQ I found this nugget of info: Currently, you need a US bank account, plus an address in the US and a US taxpayer ID. Basically you need a real business presence inside the US in order to use Chrome Web Store Payments. So this is an issue of us because we live in the Philippines. I think I may have a workaround because I have a sister that lives in the US who could theoretically provide her address, bank account etc. as required by Google, but my friend is of the opinion that we'd still require some sort of business registration in the US to account for a "real business presence". So who's right? And are there pros and cons to my workaround of going through my sister in order to put our app up on the store? Many thanks for anyone who can help us out!
