    I have put two In App Puchases in my Google Play Android app. The testers (not me - you cannot buy your own IAPs) are clicking the buy button and cannot see the line in the purchase sequence that is meant to tell them they will not be billed.

    See the picture under the title Instruct testers to make test purchases on the page:

    https://developer.android.com/google/play/billing/billing_testing

    Instead they see the typical proper purchase sequence where you will be billed.

    I have the testers' emails in my Tester List for this release.

    What could I be doing wrong?

    Note: All testers have paypal billing on google play, but I do not think that should matter.

    Found the answer. As mentioned in my OP I need to put testers into the app release.

    However, I must also put free to test tester in the top level of my Google Play Dashboard.

    Use the Developer Console to create license tester accounts:

    1. Get to the top level of the Dashboard.
    2. Navigate to Settings > Account details.
    3. In the License Testing section, add your tester's email addresses to Gmail accounts with testing access field.
    4. Save your changes. Testers can begin making purchases of your in-app products within 15 minutes.

    Oh, that's cool that you can enable free IAP for testers.
