Partnership Request

.

Overview

In order to launch an application outside of the United States or to get access to certain APIs, you need to have a Samsung Apps TV partnership status, and a partner level group. Before requesting partnership, please create a public group, as it will be required part of the partnership request process.

Becoming Partner

Unless otherwise agreed by the Content Manager, to become a partner group, you must sign up an offline agreement with Samsung Content Manager first before you submit a partnership request in the Seller Office. Once Samsung Content Manager approves the request, you shall become a Samsung Apps TV partner.

The following is the partnership request process.

2. Entering Details of Request

If you choose “Request Partnership” button, a partnership request form page will be opened.

The page consists of the following three input sections:

  • Samsung Contents Manager information
  • Group Information
  • Seller Information

According to your group creation status, the request form page is different.

  • If you already created a group
    • the fields of both group information and seller information are set as your group’s one
  • If you do not create a group
    • all the fields are blank
    • both group information fields and seller information fields are forced to be registered

Because Samsung proceeds with partnership request based on group, the Seller Office will create your group newly as a public group before reviewing your request.

The following figure shows the case when you have not been in any group.

Note

If you do not know who your Contents Manager is, register a question with your country at “1:1 Q&A”. Samsung will provide you your Contents Manager’s email.

You can make sure if you have been a partner seller at the Seller Office main page.
