Note

In August 2018, Samsung Gear became Samsung Galaxy Watch. Information referring to Galaxy Watch also applies to earlier Gear devices and apps, unless stated otherwise.

Depending on your app type, you can generate a badge shortlink that hyperlinks your customers to either:

  • Product detail page for one of your Android, Edge, Galaxy Watch, Stickers, Fonts, or Theme apps

  • Seller brand page with all of your Galaxy Watch apps or Theme apps

Android App Product Detail Page Galaxy Watch App Product Detail Page Galaxy Watch App Seller Brand Page Theme App Product Detail Page Theme App Seller Brand Page Help Page

For Samsung mobile device users, all badge shortlinks send them to either a product detail page or a seller brand page.

For non-Samsung mobile device users:

  • Badge shortlinks for Galaxy Watch apps send them to either a product detail page or a seller brand page.

  • Badge shortlinks for Android, Edge, Stickers, Fonts, and Theme apps send them to a help page.

For desktop PC users, all badge shortlinks send them to a help page.

The badge help page explains how to get to your app download page or your seller brand page.
