General AppStack Questions:

AppStack is Samsung’s business software marketplace for business owners, managers, and IT professionals. We help you find, subscribe to, and manage cloud apps for use on Samsung and third-party devices. AppStack gives your team easy access to the software you need to grow, whether you run a startup or an established company. Please review the Samsung AppStack Terms and Conditions for complete details.


Yes, AppStack cloud-based apps require an internet connection to access the service. Offline storage of information is available for many cloud apps to allow your team to work offline and update later when they have network access. Please review the capabilities of each app to ensure it provides the offline features your team needs.


Yes, AppStack can help you save with several discount options. We provide discounts on subscriptions to one or more cloud apps, as well as an additional discount for app subscriptions when your purchase Samsung devices. Discounts generally apply during the first year of app service and are available with both monthly and annual subscription plans.


If you cancel an app before the end of the term of a monthly or annual plan, with or without a discount, we will not auto-renew your subscription. You will have access to your app to the end of your currently paid term. There are no refunds for early cancellation.


Some AppStack discounts are tied to a Samsung device purchase and, if you return that device, we will charge your credit card for the difference between the regular and discounted price you received. For example, if you received a 10% discount on an annual plan of an app normally priced at $100, so that you saved $10 at the time of purchase, but return your Samsung device before 30 days after your purchase, your credit card will be charged $10. Any charges related to device discount changes will be prorated to the end of your current subscription term based on when you returned your device.


Yes, most AppStack cloud apps are accessed through a web browser that can be run on smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Many cloud apps provide platform-specific client software (for Windows, macOS, Android) that allow your team to use their accounts across several devices.


Yes, most AppStack apps have a trial period associated with them. If the app has a trial period, you can try the app once per app using your Samsung Business Account credentials. Trial lengths will vary by app. We will authorize your payment at the beginning of the trial, but we will not charge your account until the trial ends. You may cancel your subscription at any time during the trial period without a charge to your account.


Visit the AppStack marketplace and explore the available apps. We provide background information and categorize cloud apps based on their business function to help you build the features your team needs to succeed. When you are ready to subscribe, click the Get Started button. If you do not have a Samsung Business account, which will be the administrative account for your organization, we will ask you to register for one during sign-up.


A credit card is required to access free trials or subscribe to cloud apps on AppStack. We will validate your credit card at the beginning of the trial period but will not put any funds on hold or charge the card until your regular subscription begins. Recurring charges start on the day your trial ends. If you subscribe to an annual plan, we will charge your credit card at the beginning of your subscription term. Please watch for new AppStack payment options.


You will receive an email receipt for your subscription charges each month, or once a year, for your AppStack subscriptions. Be sure to cancel subscriptions at least one day before the monthly or annual payment due date to avoid charges. We will charge your card automatically at the beginning of the term of your subscription.

You will be billed each month on the day of the month on which the paid AppStack subscription began, or on the same date each year, if you subscribed to an annual plan. For example, on a monthly subscription, if a subscription starts on the 6th of the month you will be billed on the 6th day of successive months.


Any changes to your app plan will take effect when your current subscription term has ended. At this time, you cannot change your subscription from a monthly to an annual plan, or vice versa, during your current billing term.


Yes, you can add or remove user licenses on AppStack, and the changes will become active on your next renewal date.
