The Chrome Web Store and the G Suite Marketplace are separate stores, each maintaining their own app listings. Depending on the type of app you are developing, you can publish its listing in one or both locations:
|App type||G Suite Marketplace||Chrome Web Store|
|Docs, Sheets, Forms, or Slides Add-ons||Can be published here to
enable domain-wide installation
|Must be published here|
|Drive Apps||Can be published here||Must be published here|
|Gmail Add-ons||Must be published here||Cannot be published here|
|Other Marketplace apps||Must be published here||Can be published here|
|Chrome extensions||Cannot be published here||Must be published here|
As you develop your app, keep the following in mind:
- If you want your app to appear the in the G Suite Marketplace, you must enable and configure the G Suite Marketplace SDK to define its store listing.
- All Marketplace apps need to complete the SDK Configuration panel.
- Apps published only to the Marketplace need to complete the Publish panel of the Marketplace SDK as well.
- Apps published to the Chrome Web Store need a Chrome Web Store listing created with an uploaded manifest file.
Publishing only to G Suite Marketplace
If your app is published only to the G Suite Marketplace, you must complete both the Configuration and Publish panels in the G Suite Marketplace SDK. Apps published this way do not appear in the Chrome Web Store.
You can also use the controls in the Publish panel to check your app's publication status, request publication in the Marketplace, unpublish your app, or re-publish your app after making code or listing updates.
See Publish your application using G Suite Marketplace SDK for detailed instructions on how to publish your app to the G Suite Marketplace only.
Publishing to both the Chrome Web Store and the G Suite Marketplace
It is possible to publish an app to both stores. For example, Docs, Sheets, Forms, and Slides add-ons must be published to the Chrome Web Store, but can optionally be published to the Marketplace as well (to enable domain-wide installations).
To publish an app in both locations, you must do the following:
- Complete the G Suite Marketplace SDK Configuration panel.
- Create a Chrome Web Store listing in the Chrome Web Store dashboard. For Docs, Sheets, Forms, and Slides add-ons, this is created as part of the add-on publication process. For Drive Apps, you create the listing manifest yourself.
The G Suite Marketplace SDK Publish panel panel is auto-populated by information fetched from the Chrome Web Store listing, so you don't need to provide that information again.
You can use the controls in the Chrome Web Store dashboard to check your app's publication status, request publication, unpublish your app, or re-publish your app after making code or listing updates.
If you list your app in both the G Suite Marketplace and the Chrome Web Store, changes that you make to one store's listing don't affect the other—the changes are not automatically synced between listings after the initial import. If you need to make changes to the app listing, be sure to make them in both locations.
See Publish your application using the Chrome Web Store dashboard for detailed instructions on how to publish to the G Suite Marketplace and Chrome Web Store.
