1. Integrate with our API.

Integration with AppDirect is a free and simple process that allows you to distribute your application across multiple app stores. We use a RESTful API that enables automatic account provisioning, access managment, and single sign-on.

2. Publish to our network.

Once you've integrated and created a marketing profile, selling your product on multiple application stores is as simple as clicking "Publish." There's no need to create multiple profiles or perform additional integrations. We'll pipe your application into any marketplace you choose.

3. Get paid.

AppDirect manages all transactions with customers on behalf of your application. This allows you to avoid the billing nightmare and enjoy a check on the fifth of every month. Prefer PayPal? We'll send the money straight into your account.

How It Works

The Benefits of Integrating

Today, developers are forced to spend valuable time and resources marketing their applications directly to businesses. This process is extremely costly and inefficient.

When you publish your application to the AppDirect Network, it becomes instantly available for distribution to application marketplaces across the globe. Our experienced team markets your product so you can focus on what you do best—innovating amazing applications.

To make sure the right businesses find—and buy—your applications, we carefully select marketplace partners with strong brands and loyal customers. The AppDirect Network is large and diverse: Our partners’ marketplaces reach more than six million small and medium businesses in a variety of industries across the world. And we’re growing fast.

Every time an AppDirect partner launches a marketplace, you have the potential to reach its customers with your application. Our partners work with a wide variety of businesses around the globe, from tech start-ups to hair salons, giving you access to a dramatic number of new customers each month.
