Banner Promotion

Banners can promote your apps (individual apps, collections of apps, and your entire product line) and increase daily downloads by 4 to 5 times.

You can request banner promotion of one or more of your Android, Edge, Galaxy Watch, Theme, Stickers, or Font apps. Apps that meet selection criteria can be promoted using banners, which run for at least a week but may run longer.

  • For all your apps (not just the apps to be promoted):

    • Global gross sales
    • 30-day total of all Galaxy Store badge clicks
      For details, see Galaxy Store Badge Promotion.
    • Total of all app product detail pages recently visited
    • Percentage of app downloads out of total detail page visits
    • Total recent revenue for all paid apps and in-app items
  • For your submitted images:

    • Image and file size requirements
    • Editorial app review
