Country Distribution

Requirements for Theme app distribution and availability to users based on their country

For free and paid Theme apps, the countries in which the apps are available for users to purchase and download from the Theme Store may differ from those countries you select in the Seller Office due to factors described in this section. App distribution is based on the user's country (specified in app registration) and the user device (specified in the app binary file). 

A specific setting in one field can result in changes to other distribution country fields and/or their settings.
