Best practice for reviewing QQ app

QQ is the most popular ID provider for Chinese people since the 90s, it is always the first choice for websites who want to provide social login functionality for their Chinese users. But similar to other ID providers from China, the app you created needs to be reviewed before actually launching it. Reading Chinese and using Google translate for each line is not that much of fun, and in this tutorial we will go through step by step to figure out how to submit a QQ app for review. Do note: You can always download a Google translate extension for your browser to translate each page to English, it would probably be the easiest way for you, but here I decide to keep it Chinese, lets go.

  1. Navigate to QQ Connect

    And click the 4th tab (in orange box)
    homepage

  1. Registration

    After being redirected to http://connect.qq.com/manage/login, it asks you to fill in your credentials, since I do not have one, I will register for one and feel free to skip this step if you have already got one.

    Click “register a new account”, like shown:

    qq-register-1024x630

     

    It will link you to this page http://zc.qq.com/en/index.html?from=pt, it is written in English, sweet! I am pretty sure you can register an account by yourself. After filling in the information, it will send a confirmation email to your email box. After your email is verified go back to this page http://connect.qq.com/manage/login, and use the QQ number you just got to log in with.

  1. Creating the app

    Click the big green button on the right side of your screen to create an app, and here we will create a website type app.

    create_app_button

    app_for_website

    After choosing the type, you need to fill in some basic information for your website, in case if you do not use Google translate to translate the page, I did a little translations for you, there you go.

    form_with_english_translations

    Here is what I have filled in
    lucius_fillin_info

     

    Please note, when you fill in your website address, it will ask you to verify your website, so you need to copy and paste the javascript code under your website page, and then click the button beside to verify it.
    verify_successfully

    Once all the information is filled, then move on to next step, click the blue text link, it asks you to upload different sizes of the images about your company.

    add_assets

     

    upload_different_assets
    Then, it is time to submit by clicking that big green button in the middle.

    app_submit

    Confirm it by clicking the right button again.

    confirm_submit

If everything works well, you will get you app approved in a week, just remember to check it back periodically, good luck!
