From Amazon

Dear Mobile App Developer,

We recently launched Amazon Appstore Developer Select, a program designed to help your apps get discovered and give you more opportunities to boost your sales and revenue. As a developer with one or more qualifying apps live in the Amazon Appstore, you will receive the following benefits:

• Discover: Your qualifying apps will receive enhanced merchandizing in the Amazon Appstore, including 500,000 free mobile ad impressions across the Amazon Mobile Ad Network.

• Convert: Customers will receive Amazon Coins for purchasing your qualifying paid apps and in-app items.

• Operate: You will also earn 25% credit back on qualifying purchases of Amazon Web Services (AWS) products, based on your annual expenditure, up to a maximum of $500 per calendar year.

With the holidays comes a surge in app purchasing by new and existing customers alike.  Ensure your apps qualify and take advantage of the season with Developer Select merchandising benefits!

It’s easy to create qualifying mobile apps and games. They must render in high-definition (HD), be available for both Amazon and non-Amazon Android devices in the Amazon Appstore, and when relevant use Amazon APIs for in-app purchasing, mobile advertisements, and games.

For additional details on the ADS program, please review the program details here ( and FAQ (  To check the status of any current apps in the store, please visit the Appstore Developer Portal and select ‘Apps and Services.’

Best regards,

Amazon Mobile App Distribution Team
