Help Desk: Android In-App Payments

I was plagued with this problem a bit myself and trying to find an answer was a bit difficult. The problem occurred when I would try to pay for something in an app and it kept choosing the wrong account. With no way to change this, it was a bit maddening. For a while the only solution I could find was to delete the account it was trying to use until it was forced to pick the one I needed to use. This was annoying as after re-adding the accounts it would switch back. Then I found mention of uninstalling it, switching to the account I wanted to pay through and then re-installing it. This did not work.

The simple solution was to first uninstall the application. Then log in to Google Play through a web browser under the account I wanted to use it with. Then install it through that. That was the only somewhat reasonable solution I could find.
