In this article, you will find the latest information about how to list your products or services on Office.com. This article will be updated with more information and best practices as available.
UPDATE: January 2013
Listings that were in the Marketplace as of May 18, 2012 remain in in the system until their expiration date.
Providers can continue to connect customers to add-ins and services by ensuring their landing pages are indexed by Bing, which will result in inclusion in Office.com search. See: Bing's SEO best practices for guidance.
We are no longer maintaining the previous Marketplace listings. As of May 19, 2013, all of these listings will have reached their expiration date, and the site will be shifted 100% to Bing federated search.
We do not have plans to bring add-ins or services listings into the new Store.
On July 16, 2012, the following announcement was sent to Marketplace providers:
We are pleased to announce our new Office platform extensibility model for Office 365, Word, Excel, Project, Exchange, Access, and SharePoint. Office users will now be able to add cloud-based apps for Office and SharePoint to extend the capabilities of Office. To support this new investment, we have launched the office.com/store.
We invite you to explore the Apps for Office and SharePoint Developer Center to find everything you need to start creating apps. For additional information, please visit our blog over the next few days.
Many of you have invested in previous versions of Office by creating add-in extensions and listing them in our Office.com marketplace. Users of previous versions of Office will be able to find these add-ins by searching on Office.com. On April 6, we sent an announcement to all Marketplace providers. If you haven’t done so already, we encourage you to review Bing's SEO best practices and make sure your landing page is being indexed by Bing so Office.com can return the right results for user searches.
Starting the week of July 23, the Office.com Downloads marketplace will be replaced by the new Office.com/Store. Any listings currently live on our site as of May 18, 2012 will remain in our system and accessible in search. We will also include a link on the Office.com/Store through the latter part of 2012.
