New App Submission / General Information tab fields
Field Description
App title

A title for your app, used only in the Developer Console. You define the title users see in the Appstore and on devices on the Descriptions tab, in the Display Title field.

App SKU

App Stock Keeping Unit string. The SKU is a string unique (which you define based on your choosing) for your app. For example: com.amazon.example.myapp.v1). The SKU becomes the ID for your app for your own tracking purposes. Amazon does not require or use the app SKU. However, adding a unique identifier can help you keep track of multiple versions of your app. Note that SKUs are case-sensitive and have a max length of 150 characters. They can contain the characters a-z, A-Z, 0-9, underscores, periods, and dashes.

App category

A category for your app based on your best judgment. Categories are used primarily for setting up the Amazon Appstore browse tree and for grouping together the Similar, Related, and Recommended app suggestions for users. The top-level categories are the same across Fire Tablets, Fire TV, and non-Amazon Android devices, though some subcategories might not be available for Fire TV apps. If you don’t see an obvious category for your app, choose the closest fit.

Developer Publishing API keys

After you save your app, you will see Developer Publishing API keys. These keys allow you to manage your app information programmatically through the Developer Publishing API.

Customer support contact

If selected, your default support information (found under Settings > Compay Profile in the Developer Console) is used for the Customer support email address, Customer support phone, and Customer support website fields.

Customer support email address

An email address where customers can contact you.

Customer support phone

A phone number where customers can contact you.

Customer support website

The URL for your app’s support website.
