- Use of Galaxy Store badge links in Seller's social media is required
- Product conversion rate* (downloads per content page visit)

- How content is presented in Galaxy Store detail pages (for Galaxy Watch apps, see the Asset Creator for examples)
- Content ratings* (do your current customers like your apps?)
*These measurements are tracked in Galaxy Store Statistics.
It is not possible to feature all requests but an attempt will be made to place qualified content in group collections when an individual banner is not available.
If your request is approved, information on Banner Image Requirements and Recommendations will be sent via email.
