Once you like the look and feel of your demo app, it is time to prepare your tvOS App for the App Store.

1. ) Provide us with info about your App Store Product Page

Without the info for your App Store product page, we can't move forward with your app. Therefore please click the link below and let us know your app's name, description, keywords, etc:

2.) Enroll In The Apple Developer Program

To publish your App to the App Store, Apple requires you to sign up for the Apple Developer Program. This currently costs USD 99 per year which you pay directly to Apple. 

If you do not have an Apple Developer Account,  please create an "organizational Apple Developer" account - otherwise, you will not be able to invite us with the necessary App Developer Rights.

(For more information on Apple Developer Account types, see the following help article. ('Individual' vs 'Organization).

3.) Invite us to your Apple Developer / App Store Connect account

Invite us with access to "Developer Ressources" by email: support [at] tappla [dot] com.

4.) Upgrade your account to Tappla's Premium plan

If you need more time to try Tappla, please contact us and we will extend your trial.

However, we only start submitting your app to Apple's App Store after having received your payment.

There will be no charge now - we will only charge you 7 days after your app has been approved for the App Store. But we do need your payment information now.

Why do we need your payment details now?
We ask for your credit card so that we can proceed with your app after the 7-day trial if you decide not to cancel. This also allows us to reduce fraud and prevent multiple trials for the same person.

Cancel anytime - no questions asked — no further billing.

Note that the app submission process takes time (approx. 1-2 weeks)

Once you have provided us with all the information, it will take approximately 1-2 weeks for your app to be submitted and approved. The exact timeframe depends on how many other apps are in the pipeline.
