I have recently joined Samsung Theme Designer and have started working on my first products. Now, I would like to sell them, but I am encountering difficulties when attempting to request Private Seller status.
Samsung has rejected my request several times and informed me that I need to submit a Commercial request. However, the challenge lies in the fact that this requires a D.U.N.S code.
I have done some research on D.U.N.S and discovered that it is free in the United States. Unfortunately, in my country, it is quite expensive, costing more than $1,000 for a two-year period.
I would like to inquire if there are any alternative methods available. I am genuinely passionate about creating themes and contributing my best to the Samsung Store.
I am eagerly looking forward to any assistance from everyone.
You only need the DUNS for corporate commercial seller.
Most Android app sellers on Galaxy Store have to be corporate commercial sellers not but Theme Sellers are exempt and can be private commercial sellers. g
Go to your account and change the seller type to Private Commercial seller. You may need to note that you are only Selling themes and understand to sell non-theme Android apps you need to change to corporate seller account.
You need to contact the seller portal team about this by…
Signing in to the seller portal
Click on Help
click on contact us
Click on the contact us in that form
If it says do you mean samsung.com you don’t dismiss that
tell them the issue and be sure to tell them you are a Themes only creator and understand you would need to be a commercial seller to sell Android apps.
I wish I could help, but for any thing financial I can not intercede to the seller office.
If they send back a reason you don’t understand let me know and I’ll contact you with a private message and may be able to understand the issue.
Theme developers can be private commercial sellers but you have to be a commercial seller.
DUNS is only required for Corporate Commercial Sellers
Go to the Seller Portal
You should be listed as a Private Seller
Click on request commercial seller request and click on Private commercial seller
it will have some information and ultimately ask you to link to this seller Guide section
Those who apply for a status change to a Commercial Seller must submit the following required documents. All submitted documents must be in English.
A copy of identification card in English (however, sellers with Russian citizenship are not required to submit a copy of identification card)
Then there are more stuff about banking information.
You don’t need a local business unless your are an Non-Themes Android developer
