How to Get Started Selling Your App Online

How does publishing an Application on the Marketplace work?

It’s simple:

  • You control your business you decide what types of subscriptions you make available, the terms of use associated with the app, and the price customers should pay to use the app.
  • We will expose your offering(s) in our marketplace, make it easy for customers to discover, and handle the customer subscriptions, provisioning and billing.
What Do I Need to Add to My App?

The application must be updated to react to events when users purchase a subscription to the application and cancel a subscription to the application. For more information download the App Publishing Kit.
