How To Submit an Android App To The Amazon App Store

Are you looking to increase the reach of your Android app? Looking for an alternate app store to submit it?

Android App to Amazon App Store

The majority of app developers publish their apps on the Google Play Store but disregard many alternative stores that are popular. The Amazon App Store is another popular app store for publishing your free or paid Android app!

In this guide, I will share the requirements (including image specifications for branding), for publishing your app to the Amazon App Store. I will be publishing my existing Android app (listed here) to the Amazon App Store.

This is an extensive guide, and will cover all of the essential steps to follow for publishing an app on the Amazon App Store.

Complete Guide to Submit Android App to Amazon App Store:

Go to this link & create your Amazon developer account. It is very important that you configure payment options right away. This is especially important for those who are offering in-app purchases or who want to monetize their app using Amazon’s mobile ad network.

Amazon app payment

  • Click on “submit”, and complete the tax interview for monetizing your app. If you don’t want to monetize the app, ignore filling out the tax interview. (It’s boring!)
  • Head over to your Amazon developer console here.
  • Click on Apps & Services
  • Click on Add New App

  • Image Sizes: Listed here are images sizes required for your app submission. In some cases you might be using a graphic designer, so you can share these image dimensions directly.

  2. Large icon: (512*512px) PNG Format
  3. Screenshots Between 3 and 10 PNGs or JPGs

  • Once all tabs are green ticked, click on “submit app” under “app name” to submit for review.

Submitted app to Amazon

 

  • According to the official help page, it can take up to 6 days to review your submitted Android app. In my case it took about 12 hours, and the app is already live. You can see the ShoutMeLoud app on the Amazon store here.

    Thanks Harsh for this guide to submit an app on Amazon app store.Can you also tell me from which developer you have created your android app.

  2. Rohit Dwivedula

    Wow! Amazon app store allows you to register for free? Google Play Store charges, $20, I guess?

    I think amazon doesn’t give your app many downloads.
    everyone uses google play store.
    submitting is a good option, but your app ought to be on google play store for maximum downloads.
    I am preparing a guide on my site to make android app without coding!
    Thanks Harsh for this valuable information!

  5. Hello Harsh,
    Thank you for sharing the information about how to submit an app to the Amazon app store. Its really helpful.

  6. Hello Harsh,

    Thank you harsh for this vital piece of information but i believe uploading apps to
    amazon play store has its own pros and cons ::::

    1) Amazon does not get as much audience as the google play store.
    But having the app on play store as well as on amazon store will always be
    a advantage .

    2) You can also release a version on amazon ,just to check its response towards audience .

    3) You can upload the app for free on amazon while paying some nominal charges on amazon.
