Becoming Partners

This guide explains how to apply for the Partner Seller membership status.

Introduction of Partnership

To launch an application outside the United States or use certain APIs, you must have a Partner Seller membership.

A Public Seller can become a Partner Seller through completing an approval process with the Samsung Content Manager. To do so, you first need to submit a partnership request through the TV Seller Office system.

If you become a Partner Seller with the approval of the Content Manager, you can launch TV application services in countries other than the U.S, use certain APIs, and receive dedicated technical support for application development from the Samsung Engineering team.

Request Partnership

If you select the "Membership > Partnership" menu, the partnership request page is opened.

Enter the email address of the Samsung Content Manager who can approve the partnership request and fill out the request.

Partner rights are granted to a seller group, so if your seller account is not yet a member of a group, you must register the basic company information to create a seller group at the same time as you make the partnership request.

For more information on groups, see the Creating Group section of the Managing Seller Groups guide.

After entering all of the requested information and clicking the "Done" button, the partnership request is completed.

Once your Content Manager approves your request, you will be entitled to the Partner Seller membership.
