How to Add Your Apps

To successfully add your applications, the e-mail you used to create and verify your account needs to be either (1) the same domain as listed in the App Stores (Apple or Google) for the applications you are adding, for example myname@myappdomain.com or (2) the exact e-mail address in the App Stores, such as myname@gmail.com or myname123@yahoo.com etc. If you were unable to do so, a VRTCAL team member can assist you during this process.

In addition, you will need to add the VRTCAL inclusions in your applications’ app-ads.txt files.

You are able to add up to 10 (ten) unverified applications in your account, which will be able to utilize TEST ads only, until verified.

Steps to Add, Verify and Launch:

  1. Select the Apps Management menu item at the top of your VRTCAL account console (after signing in).

  2. Add the following VRTCAL inclusions in the app-ads.txt file. The domain of the app-ads.txt file needs to match the domain in the application’s App Store account. The top section is required to Auto Verify your applications. The bottom section of inclusions listed below is highly recommended to allow many of VRTCAL’s buyers.

  1. After your successful submission, select the Auto Verify App button. This will verify (a) your e-mail address domain or specific e-mail address matches the App Store account of the application and (b) therequired VRTCAL app-ads.txt inclusions are in your appdomain.com/app-ads.txt file.

If you received an error message, either the domain of your e-mail address or the specific e-mail address was not in the App Store account AND/OR your app-ads.txt file does not include the required VRTCAL inclusions. Both error types will deny verification. If problems persist, please contact support@vrtcal.com.
