  1. Upload an Apk The package name of your app has to be unique in the Poynt Store. The best practice is to have the package name start with the domain name of your site (e.g. If you own domain name awesomedeveloper.com your apps package name should start with com.awesomedeveloper). Apps with package names starting with co.poynt or com.poynt will be rejected.

NOTE:

Make sure that you are uploading a signed release version of your apk (If you are uploading a dev variant to test billing integration it can be signed by Android Studio debug key)

WARNING

Make sure you don't lose the key used to sign your apk. If you do, you will not be able to push updates to merchants who use your app and will need to create a new app with a different package name

You are not done yet. Uploading your apk does not submit your app for review!

  1. Provide additional information needed for your app to be listed in Poynt Store
  • Tagline is a short description for your app when it's displayed as a recommended app.
  • Region determines in which country your app will be available

TIP

MCCs, or Merchant category codes, classify businesses by what they sell or the service they provide. These four-digit codes are assigned by payment card organizations — Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover — when the business first starts accepting these methods of payment. Please provide the (MCC) codes of merchants (in a comma-delimited format) your app is best suited for. More information on (MCCs) codes can be found here (opens new window)
