Sign Your Partnership Agreement

After reviewing this page, you'll be able to:

  1. Describe the options for signing your partnership agreement with Salesforce.

  2. Get under contract and on your way.

Let’s make it official.

You’ve got a product and a killer business strategy and both have been approved through the business approval process - congratulations! Pat yourself on the back for a job well done. We know you’ve already put a lot of work into this partnership, and now it’s time to make it official.

This is the moment you’ve been waiting for - you’re about to become an AppExchange partner! Let’s get you under contract and on your way to a successful product on the AppExchange. To do that, you’ll need to sign your partnership agreement.

Other than making you “official”, the partnership agreement gives you access to all of the benefits of being an AppExchange partner, allows you to commercially distribute your product, and is required for you to move any further with the checklist steps.

I’m ready, let’s do this!

Earlier in your journey to become an AppExchange partner, you decided what kind of product you were going to build based on the customer you want to reach and the type of functionality you want to deliver (step 5, remember?). That decision is a big one, because the way you’re looking to distribute ultimately determines what kind of agreement you’ll need to have.

Luckily for you, you don’t have to figure this out alone. In your review call with the AppExchange Partner Program team as part of step 7, you discussed how you’ll be distributing your app and decided on your path forward.

Selling your product to existing Salesforce customers and ready to get to the AppExchange, like, yesterday? You’re in luck. You can accept our click-through agreement on the Partner Community and be on your way. This is your fastest path to market.

Building your product on the Salesforce Platform and selling outside of the Salesforce customer base? We’ll work together on a different agreement.

The Dotted Line

Now you know the importance of signing your partnership agreement and how to make it happen. Next step is to sign on the dotted line and submit your product for security review!

We’re thrilled to officially welcome you as an AppExchange partner!
