  • Hello Gubbala,

    For testing there is a beta option (more information here) which also includes alternate distribution options for your apps. The Symantec Code Signing Certificate will allow you to distribute your app outside of the store, but you may also use some of the alternate distribution options to distribute your app privately. It’s possible you may be able to use one of the listed distribution options without needing to purchase the certificate from Symantec.

    If you have any questions about the distribution options please contact us here through your developer account. Thank you!
