Magento Marketplace User Guide

Submit for Technical Review

When you have completed the code you can submit your extension for Technical and/or Marketing Review. The extension is placed in a queue as soon as it is submitted. You will receive confirmation by email, and can track the status of your submission from your Marketplace account.

If your extension makes use of Shared Packages — or components — they must be ready to use before you can associate them with your submission. You will not be able to submit your extension to Technical Review until the shared packages that are used by the extension are available in your account.
