Author Certificate is used when you upload to the Seller Portal and tells Samsung who created the app.
Distributor Certificate allows you to push (sideload) your watch face to your specific watch.
The Galaxy Store for Tizen based Watch apps no longer accepts new content. Therefore they will no longer accept new designers. It would not matter if you were already a Watch Face Designer Partner you can’t upload any longer.
Samsung’s last Tizen based watches was over 2 years ago. Galaxy Watch 4 & 5 are Wear OS powered by Samsung based watches.
You should switch to Wear OS watch face designs using Watch Face Studio those are published on Google Play Store.
I’ll see if I can report to the Seller Store to remove the link from the notice.
wow, I am glad to see your reply. Your answer has been very helpful to me. Can I understand that I need to delete GalaxyWatchStudio, start learning the operation of WatchFaceStudio, and upload watch works to the Google Play store for sale?
The works produced by WatchFaceStudio no longer require a Samsung brand certificate???
I have a notification from Samsung Seller Portal website earlier this year that Samsung App Store is no longer accepting new TizenOS watch faces submission. So, I can not submit new watch faces at Samsung Galaxy App Store. I can still update the old watch faces that are on sale at Samsung Galaxy App Store.
They suggested to submit new WearOS watch faces at Google Play Store.
