Step 1: Log In and Add an App

Before you can submit an app, you must register for a developer account (it's free) and add an app within the Developer Console.

Log in and Add an App

  1. Go to Developer Console and click Sign In in the upper-right corner.

    If you already have an Amazon.com account but not an Amazon developer account, sign in with your Amazon.com account. On the backend, the Developer Console creates the developer account using your Amazon.com email address, and then the two accounts are tied together and synced. You will be prompted to complete the registration profile pages in the Developer Console.

    After you sign in, the Developer Portal shows the Dashboard page for your account.

  2. From the Dashboard, in the Amazon Appstore widget, click the Add a New App drop-down menu and select one of the following:

    • Android (refers to Java-based Android apps, usually created with Android Studio)
    • Mobile Web (refers to HTML5 web apps, created with HTML, JavaScript, and CSS)
    Amazon Appstore section in Dashboard

    The New App Submission page appears for you to enter basic information about your app. This information will be accessible later from the "General Info" tab. You won't see the tabs until you save your app.
