This guide explains how to use the system by becoming a member of the TV Seller Office.
To use the TV Seller Office system, you must first sign up for a membership as a seller.
You can register and release applications through the TV Seller Office, and receive validation tests and feedback from the Samsung team. In addition, you can use a dedicated 1:1 Q&A for direct support from Samsung engineers.
You can sign up for and log in to Samsung Apps TV Seller Office with your Samsung Account. When you log in, if you are not already a member of the TV Seller Office, you are presented with a sign-up page.
If you do not have a Samsung Account, create a Samsung Account first.
The TV Seller Office offers two types of membership. When you sign up as a member of the TV Seller Office, you initially become a Public Seller and can later become a Partner Seller by requesting a partnership.
The Public Seller level refers to a general account, and when you sign up for a TV Seller Office membership, you begin at this level.
A Public Seller can use most of the features of the TV Seller Office, except for some Partner-specific features, and can launch TV application services only in the United States.
A Public Seller can become a Partner Seller through an approval process by a Samsung Content Manager. First, you need to sign an offline contract with Samsung HQ or a local subsidiary, and then 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. as agreed in your offline contract, use certain APIs, and receive dedicated technical support for application development from the Samsung Engineering team.
For more information, refer to the Becoming Partners guide.
