Promote Android Apps
Learn how your Android apps are advertised within the Galaxy Store and how you can advertise them in your promotional channels.

 

The Galaxy Store promotes your Android apps based on information, graphics, and videos registered with your apps. Samsung also assists you in promoting your apps through advertising channels outside the Galaxy Store using download discounts and coupon codes.

Galaxy Store Promotions

The Galaxy Store promotes your Android apps through its product detail page, in marketing areas with other apps and products, and by using banners.

All Android Apps 

Each app and product distributed in the Galaxy Store has a detail page, which is the primary page promoting your apps and products. Apps and products that meet certain eligibility criteria are also listed in one or more market areas, from which customers can access detail pages.

Product Detail Page

A product detail page is where your customers review your app or product information and initiate download. The scrolling detail page shows information such as title, description, and pricing, graphic images including screenshots, and video files registered to your app or product. You can change what is shown at any time through Samsung Seller Office.

Banners
