About Sunmi App Market
Every Sunmi partner can register Sunmi partner account on Sunmi official website to have
his/her own operation background. In principle, every Sunmi device will be
bound to a partner account number when it is sold out. Sunmi will take the
partner as unit to provide the control service for partial functions &
Sunmi has an internal App market, and the
partner can distribute his/her own Apps on a large scale onto Sunmi devices. Partial
partners can have an App market managed by themselves. If the partner has not
opened “Allow third party App installation” (as shown by the arrow in the
following figure), its own default users can only install App for the device
via Sunmi App market.
App Market Rules
Sunmi has distributed App markets with
different permissions to partial partners, and the Apps uploaded by default partners
will appear in their own App markets without Sunmi’s review. Sunmi can review
this App, and after passing the review, this App will appear in the App markets
of other partners. Certainly, partial partners can not only choose that their
own Apps do not appear in other people’s App markets, but also choose that
other people’s Apps do not appear in their own App markets. As for the authorized
permissions, you may consult Sunmi customer service 400-902-1168 (everyday 9:00
~ 21:00, except holidays)
App Distribution Procedure
After completing App development, upload it
to the App market. The user can search & find App at App market of the
device. If it’s a channel partner, the automatic installation of App’s own device can be set. Explain the procedure
of App’s first upload & distribution as follows.

such as App introduction, App’s well-matched devices, App type, etc.

There is a “Whether to deploy grey scale or not”
option above “Deliver” button in the above figure. After checking this box, the
deliver button will turn to “Grey scale deployed” item, and you will enter the
grey scale deployment configuration item after clicking it.
Grey scale deployment is a function
provided by Sunmi against the partner’s actual demand. A geographic location
message will appear when each device is used, and the partner may deploy on
partial devices according to geographic location or SN number after he/she has
developed his/her own App to match Sunmi devices. This App will appear only in
the App market of the devices within the scope of grey scale deployment. After
completing grey scale deployment within a small scope, the developer can deploy
the App onto devices within full range.

uploaded App onto all its own devices, you can set this App to automatically
