It is where users organically discover amazing games, and exclusive and differentiated applications created by Samsung and third parties. Galaxy Store is focused on providing quality app experiences, app promotions, campaigns, rewards, and exclusive offers.
Marketing and promotions
Available in over 180 countries, market your app to the hundreds of millions of active Galaxy device users who download billions of apps from Galaxy Store. Reach these users with promotions for Android apps and games, Galaxy Watch for Tizen apps, or Galaxy Themes.
You can request to promote your app in Galaxy Store when your app meets the selection criteria. You may qualify for a banner promoting your app or be part of a collection of apps that fit a trending topic.

In-App purchase and Samsung Galaxy SDKs
With Samsung In-App Purchase (IAP), Galaxy Store can provide you a new revenue stream and opens the opportunity to diversify your sales. IAP is Samsung’s payment service that makes it possible to sell items, such as virtual goods or subscriptions, in your applications. Samsung provides examples, beta testing, and technical support to help with the integration of the SDK and server APIs, reducing time-to-market.
Samsung also provides a collection of SDKs, services, and tools to help you create and develop your apps for Galaxy devices.
Access to Galaxy devices
If you don’t own a Galaxy device, use the Remote Test Lab service to test your applications on a real device. These are actual devices that you access through the web. Save on hardware costs and test the compatibility of your app on multiple devices.
Performance, metrics, and user attribution
Galaxy Store Statistics (GSS) is a free and exclusive tool that can be used to track and monitor Galaxy Store app performance and metrics like downloads, conversion, subscription, top SEO keywords, attribution channels, and Galaxy Store badge linking. GSS also provides user acquisition reports that measure user attribution and breaks down the numbers by channel, source, keywords, and featured placement (attribution from Galaxy Store banners or icons).
Track app performance using Galaxy Store Statistics
Additionally, Galaxy Store is integrated with several third-party attribution platforms. App publishers have used platforms such as Adjust, AppsFlyer, Branch, Kochava, and Singular for side-by-side conversion measurement.
Galaxy Store has its own merchandising and marketing opportunities for game developers. Game developers who meet pre-requisites around quality, downloads, ratings, and reviews can be considered to be featured in Galaxy Store game collections, banners, marketing promotions, and campaigns.
Games are featured in the Samsung app ecosystem. For example, pre-Loaded on most Galaxy devices, Samsung Game Launcher is the high-engagement gaming experience where gamers discover new featured titles resulting in billions of page views. Games are also featured in Galaxy Themes Store, Samsung Pay, Bixby, Samsung Daily, and in regional push notifications, creating a high-engagement premium marketing channel reaching the global Galaxy user base.
