1. Prerequisites for App Publishing
Before embarking on the app submission process, ensure the following steps are completed:
Developer Accounts Enrollment: Customers should enroll in both Apple and Google Developer Programs. It's vital that the app be published from an account directly associated with it to avoid violating store policies.
App Configuration: Ensure the app is assigned to either a Premium, Professional, or Enterprise configuration. Otherwise, the publishing information page won't display correctly.
Publishing Information Submission: Complete the Publishing Information page on the App Dashboard and submit the app details to our publishing team.
2. Creating Apple and Google Developer Accounts
Apple Developer Program Enrollment:
Public Use Apps: Customers should opt for either individual or organization Apple developer accounts.
Internal Use Apps: Requires an Apple Enterprise developer account.
Note: Apple developer accounts entail an annual fee.
Google Developer Account Enrollment:
Google offers a single developer account type, with a one-time fee for enrollment.
3. Granting Access to Our Publishing Team
Apple Developer Account:
Add our publishing team's email,
Publishing2@appdocumentation.com, as an App Manager.
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do this.
Google Developer Account:
For individual accounts, add our publishing email,
firstname.lastname@example.org, as an Admin.
For business accounts, add the same email as an App Manager.
Check this comprehensive guide for detailed steps.
4. Steps to Submit Apps for Publishing
Access the App Dashboard and navigate to "Advanced" > "App Publishing Info".
If there are missing items, such as an app icon, a pop-up will notify you. Resolve these issues before proceeding.
Complete the publishing information, agree to the terms, and click on “Yes, Submit For Publishing”.
Post-submission, our publishing team typically takes 1-2 business days to prepare your app for Apple and Google submission.
Apple generally takes 7-14 business days for app review, while Google's review process lasts 2-3 business days.
