Certification Validation Submission and Management

After development of your production version service app, update the Seller Office registration with your production service app and items. Submit the service app for certification, which starts with automated pre‑certification. After passing pre‑certification, the service app undergoes certification evaluation by the Samsung certification team.

After passing certification, the service app will be distributed in the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store, which makes it available for free or commercial download either soon after passing certification or after a date specified during registration. A maximum of one day is needed after passing certification for the service app to be distributed to stores by the server via the automatic distribution.

If a service app fails pre-certification or certification, its Seller Office account representatives will be notified via email. To find out the reason for the rejection in the Seller Office website, go to the certification status in My Applications and click the pop-up icon with the Rejected status. You can modify the service app and its Seller Office registration, and then resubmit the service app for certification.

If the service app fails the pre-certification phase, there is a failure issue with one or more of your registered service app binary files. You must revise one or more binary files to correct the issue(s). However, you must reupload ALL the binary files, with either a revised version (to correct a failure issue) OR with the same version (when there was no failure issue with that binary file). You may also change other UI entries, but this is not required. After resubmitting, your service app will undergo the pre-certification phase again.

If the service app passes the pre‑certification phases but fails the certification phase, there is a failure issue with one or more of your registered service app binary files, with one or more other UI entries (such as uploaded screenshots), or with binary files and other UI entries. You must correct the failure issue(s). However, you must reupload ALL the binary files (as in the pre-certification phase above). After resubmitting, your service app will undergo only the certification phase again.

After Galaxy Apps Store publication, individuals with the Seller Office account that has the service app registered to it can manage the service app and its financial settings, components, and distribution.
