Determine app type

This topic defines the different application types that can be created with SP-API.

There are three types of applications (apps) that you can develop with SP-API:

  • Public apps. These apps are publicly available on the Selling Partner Appstore and are authorized by a seller or vendor.

  • Private seller apps. Selling partner apps available only to your organization (or client) and are self-authorized.

  • Private vendor apps. Vendor apps available only to your organization and are self-authorized.

Each app type has different workflows and requirements.
