Uploading your FREE APP

Hello Everyone!

Thanks to the strong communication lines between us, you and SERI. It’s come to our attention that some of you are hoping to upload your Apps as a paid application.

Now whilst we have no problem with you selling your apps, we have realised that the ‘Seller Information’ process for ‘Private Seller Status’ can take anywhere between 2-4 week to complete. Obviously the danger there is that you will be waiting for the next 4 weeks for a response by which time your deadline with our competition is ended and the dream of ££££ and a big day out at Bafta will remain just that.

We will therefore be asking that you submit your apps as FREE for the purposes of meeting the various deadlines of the competition. Following this (or even concurrently) students can apply for their ‘private seller status’.
Following the competition, you would re-submit your app, but this time with details of how you wish to sell your app. You would be advised to remove the earlier ‘free version’ from the store if there are no differences between that and the paid version.

If your plan was to have both free and paid versions in store anyway, I would start with the submitting of the free version in order to be eligible for the competition as your app, in some shape or form, has to be in Samsung Apps.

Whilst we know you’re all eager to have your app uploaded and potentially being downloaded for money, we would like to remind you that you won’t feel the real benefit until after the Grand Final. When Samsung will be pushing all of your apps to a separate category on the app store and visible to millions!

So in a Nutshell…..

YOU HAVE TO HAVE YOUR APPLICATION UPLOADED AS A FREE APP BY MARCH 6TH AT THE LATEST! WE ARE ENCOURAGING YOU TO START UPLOADED NOW AS CERTIFICATION PROCESS TAKES ONE WEEK. PLUS THE CHANCES ARE YOU WILL HAVE OVERLOOKED SOMETHING RIGHT UNDERNEATH YOUR NOSE! 😛

IF YOU WISH TO SELL YOUR APP, YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO THIS ALSO BUT FOCUS ON HAVING THIS LIVE AFTER THE GRAND FINAL WHEN SAMSUNG CAN PROMOTE IT TO MILLIONS

ALSO: Once you have submitted your application, please email Lee with Subject title ‘Appy and I know it’ with the app name and dev name :)

If you have any questions please feel free to email me or the SERI team :)
