Android Service Account

Lastly, we have to setup an Android Service account, which will be used to connect to the Google Publisher API. This is required for subscriptions, as this allows to properly detect renewals and cancellations.

It is also important for other types of in-app products, as it allows the service to acknowledge purchases and detect transactions that have been deleted by Google customer service.
