Samsung Developer Program

Development, Distribution, and Management

Below is a high-level overview of how to:

  • Integrate the Open IAB Library to support commercial item processing.
  • Register, certify, and distribute your service app and its commercial items. 
  • Manage purchasing, billing, and sales of your service app and its commercial items via the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store and Samsung systems.

 

Distributing and managing your service app and items via Samsung systems
  1. Develop your service app and its commercial items:
  • Ensure your service app and its items meets Samsung certification requirements and guidelines.
  • Set up your development environment:
    • Use the Android Studio to develop your application and import the Open IAB Library.
    • Base your service app on JDK 1.6 or higher.
  • Initially register your development service app and its commercial items with the Samsung Galaxy Apps Seller Office. (In this step, you will NOT submit your service for certification. This simply enables development integration testing. In Step 2, you will completely register your production version and submit it for certification to be distributed.)
  • Integrate Open IAB Library API calls into your service. 
    • Your service app must NOT be a Gear application or a KNOX 2.0 application.
    • Your service app must properly integrate Open IAB API calls to support the commercial item listing and purchasing functionality of Samsung In-App Purchase (IAP). 
    • Test your integrated service app.
    • For details, see Open IAB Library Integration.

 

  1. Distribute your service app and its commercial items via the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store:
  • Change the development version of your service app and items into their normal, production version, including adding production version commercial items. For details, see Service App and Item Registration, Certification, and Management.
  • Update the Seller Office registration with your production service app and items, which includes but is not limited to the following:
    • Ensure all service app and commercial item prices are correct.
    • Ensure the countries your service app is to be distributed to are specified. 
    • Ensure the user devices that your service app is to be distributed to are specified. Distribution devices must meet the following requirements:
      • The device must be a Samsung device with the following clients installed: Samsung Account Client, Samsung Galaxy Apps Store Client, Samsung Billing Client, and Samsung In-App Purchase.
      • The device must be selected for distribution in the Samsung Galaxy Apps Seller Office.
    • For details, see Service App and Item Registration, Certification, and Management.
  • Submit your service app and its items for certification via the Samsung Galaxy Apps Seller Office. For details, see Service App and Item Registration, Certification, and Management.
