The Upsales App directory helps users discover apps. The apps published are ones that our review team determine to be high-quality, reliable, and useful.
You can distribute your apps without using the App Directory, but listing on the Directory can boost visibility and usage.
In this guide, we'll help you prepare your app for submission to the App directory and outline that submission and review process. We'll also show you how you should maintain your listing after a successful review.
Preparing your app for submission
The process for getting apps published in the App Directory involves a manual review by our App Directory team. They will ensure that your app meets the quality and utility standards of App Directory apps.
Check your app is suitable
Before we go further, it's important to note that there are some types of apps that our users are more interested in than others:
- ERP integrations
- E-sign integrations
- File storage integration
- Phone integration
This list is not exhaustive - the App Directory team may use their judgment to deny any app from being listed - but it's useful to know upfront when your app is suitable.
Build your app
1. Create a test account in Upsales
2. Read docs about our App Directory and API docs
3. Create a great user experience
Checklist before submitting
- My app doesn’t infringe on any trademark, copyright, or other intellectual property rights
