Managing your apps
Search for your apps on the vendor portal
- In a browser, visit the BlackBerry World vendor portal.
- Log in to the vendor portal using a user account with the Admin role or the Product Submit/Modify role.
- In the Product Name Search field, type the name of the product.
- Click Search.
Manage the content for your app
You can change information associated with your app by searching for your app on the vendor portal, and then using the edit icon to display entered content. You can click other icons to add a release, add a digital good, check app reviews, and apply to the Built for BlackBerry program.
After you add a release for a product, you cannot change the license type, regardless of the status of the release or the product. To change the license type of an approved product, you must either make the product unavailable on BlackBerry App World and submit it again as a new product with a different license type, or you can complete the BlackBerry App World vendor support form to request a license change.
Changes to the price of a product might take up to 24 hours to display on BlackBerry App World. Frequent price changes might cause issues for users and wireless service providers. It is a best practice to avoid frequent price changes.
If you change information that requires approval from RIM, the vendor portal submits a change request ticket.
Apply to the Built for BlackBerry program
The Built for BlackBerry program is designed to help vendors increase the marketing potential of their BlackBerry 10 apps.
If your app is designed for the BlackBerry 10 platform, you'll see a link to apply under the Built for BlackBerry column after your your app is approved for sale on BlackBerry World.
After you click Apply to submit your app for the program, follow the instructions that display.
If you modify your app in any way after you apply to the Built for BlackBerry program (for example, if you replace a screen shot or change a description), your submission to the Built for BlackBerry program will be cancelled. You will have to re-submit your app to the progam.
Make apps available or unavailable on BlackBerry World
The product must be approved by Research In Motion before you make the product available on the BlackBerry World storefront.
Log in to your BlackBerry World vendor portal account with an Admin role or a Product Submit/Modify role, and click Manage Products.
Search for your product, locate the Products column for the product, and perform one of the following actions:
To make the product available on BlackBerry World, click Post for sale.
To remove an available product from BlackBerry World, click Remove from Sale. You can make the product available again at a later date.
Duplicate products are not permitted on BlackBerry World. Each product available for sale must have a unique product name.
When a product is made available or unavailable, there is typically a six hour window for changes to be reflected in BlackBerry World.
