Go Admin | How do I request an app update?

After your apps have been published in the app stores, certain changes made to your apps will require an app update.

Please note that changes made to the color configurations, page designs, or "More" menu entries do not require an app update.

 

If you have made any of the changes listed here and wish to have your apps updated, please send an email to support@shopgate.com informing us of your update request and the changes that you have made.

 

How long will this take?

After we have submitted your apps to the App Store and the Google Play Store, Apple and Google will start their review process. The review process for both Apple and Google will take 1-5 days, dependent on their current workload.

To learn more about this app process, read What happens after I submit the apps?
