Promote Your Apps

Samsung promotes your apps in the Samsung Galaxy Apps (Android apps and Edge panel apps), the Gear Store section of Galaxy Apps (Gear watch face apps and regular Gear apps), and the Samsung Themes store (Theme apps), and Samsung helps you promote your apps in your own marketing and media channels

Promotion in Samsung App Stores

Galaxy Apps and Samsung Themes promote your apps through a wide variety of methods. 

For Android, Gear, and Theme apps:

  • You establish the content of product detail pages by registering app information, graphic images, and videos in Seller Office.
    You can also personalize your product detail pages.
  • You can request banner promotion of one or more apps, and app-related events.
  • Samsung editorial teams for the Galaxy Apps and Samsung Themes stores:
    • Determine which category group pages the apps are to be made available in.
    • Select apps and app-related events to be promoted through banners.
       

For Gear and Theme apps:

  • You can generate and personalize your own seller brand pages that promote your entire line of apps.
     

Most of the following are provided or available to all apps; some are available to apps that meet preset criteria (such as number of downloads), some are available upon developer request, and some are available upon Samsung editorial team selection.
