Get noticed

If you’re an app or game developer, it can be a challenge to get your products in front of people, both customers and reviewers. Amazon recognizes this and has created a number of dedicated storefronts on Amazon.com for you to sell your apps and games. Each app, game, and virtual good has a product detail page and can be found by customers in search results, search refinements, recommendation widgets, and bestseller lists across Amazon.

(Note: Currently, self-service uploads of PC & Mac software and games are distributed only via Amazon.com.) 

Amazon Appstore

The Amazon Appstore is available for Android devices including the all-new Fire family of devices. Millions of customers can discover, search or shop for apps and games on Amazon in 236 countries and territories using online and mobile stores in the US, Canada, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy. Additionally, Amazon markets your apps using proven ecommerce and marketing features such as search and search refinement, browse, and app recommendations based on customers’ past purchases. These features brings your apps to your customers while helping you get increased visibility.

Amazon Underground

The new Amazon Underground shopping app fully integrates apps and games into the shopping experience enjoyed by millions of customers. So when customers are searching for products in the Amazon shopping app, they’ll also discover relevant apps and games that they may also enjoy.  With Amazon Underground, customers can now access over ten thousand dollars worth of apps, games and in-app items 100% free, and the developers get paid for every minute their Amazon Underground app is used.

Digital Software and Games Store

Amazon's Digital Software store offers you a distribution channel to promote and sell your software and subscriptions to millions of Amazon customers. When customers purchase a software download or subscription, the title is added to their Games & Software Library where they can access product keys, view all purchased software, and manage subscriptions.

Indie Games Store

The Indie Games Store is a dedicated storefront designed to specifically help indie game developers with promoting their PC, Mac, and browser-based games while helping gamers discover a large and growing selection of innovative indie games. The dedicated indie-specific storefront offers indie developers several programs to increase discoverability. These include Indie Spotlight, Indie Bundles, and the Indie Gamer's Choice which puts two indie games head-to-head and allows players to vote on their favorite title to become the Indie Gamer’s Choice, which is featured in the store.
