Bango is the payment provider for credit card and operator payment transactions on Firefox Marketplace. To receive payments for app and in-app purchases processed by Bango you'll need to create at least one Bango payment account. This page provides a guide to the account creation process.
When you submit your first paid app you'll need to add a Bango account so that users can purchase your app and you can receive payments of your revenue. This process is described in Your first paid app.
For the second and all subsequent paid apps that you submit you'll have the choice between using an existing Bango account or creating a new one. The processes associated with these options are described in Your second or later paid apps.

- The Payment Accounts dialog confirms that you have no payment accounts setup, click Add a Bango account.
