Use the Seller Dashboard to submit Office and SharePoint Add-ins and Office 365 apps to the Office Store

If you want your app or add-in to appear in the Office Store, you need to submit it to the Seller Dashboard for approval. First, familiarize yourself with the Office Store validation policies. You can add and save your app or add-in as a draft in your Seller Dashboard account until you're ready to submit it for approval.

If your SharePoint Add-in requires an Open Authorization (OAuth) client ID and client secret, you can add a client ID and client secret in the Seller Dashboard before you add your add-in. For more information, see Create or update client IDs and secrets in the Seller Dashboard.

If you're submitting Office 365 web apps to the Seller Dashboard, make sure that you have registered your web app with Azure Active Directory. The Office Store currently accepts only Azure AD apps that use OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect as their authentication method.

For information about the Office Store approval process, see Submit apps and add-ins to the Office Store.
