Greetings to all our Developers,

Please note that Developer Subscription Plan is not the same plan as other subscriptions.

With Developer Subscription Plan you receive your own Website. You will be able to have your own clients which will register and will be able to create applications using your website. The website will have SAME functionality as SeattleCloud.com However the website will have your company branding and design.

The app builder fully supports development of mobile applications for 5 platforms: Android | iPhone | iPad | Kindle and WebApps.

- Your clients login on your website
- Publish your branded previewer apps
- Professional Mobile Application CMS
- Translate your website to any language (up to 10 different languages)
- Full support for Localization
- Accept Credit Cards with Authorize.NET | PayPal PRO, PayPal, ClickBank, 2CHECKOUT, Jvzoo and Coupons
- Set your own plans and prices

After you've activated your Developer Subscription Plan with SeattleClouds and went trough the set up process here: SET UP (click here) , you will get access to Publisher Dashboard. Use Publisher Dashboard to configure your publisher website and customize your white label website settings and configuration.

Publisher Dashboard
