What is Samsung's selection criteria for app banner promotion?

Banner promotions are advertisements for apps that are featured in the Galaxy Store. They link directly to an app's detail page, a collection of apps, or your product line, and typically run for two weeks.

While some banner promotions are based on popularity (number of downloads), you can request to have your app, collection of apps, or product line promoted. You must be a member of the Samsung Developer Program to submit a request.

Your apps must be of high quality, show a potential for sales, and add value to Galaxy devices. For example, Samsung may evaluate all of your apps (not just the app or apps submitted for promotion) on the following criteria:

  • Global gross sales
  • Number of recent visits to the product detail page
  • Percentage of downloads based on the total visits to the product detail page
  • Recent revenue for paid-for apps or apps with in-app items
  • Editorial review
