Mobile

Amazon Mobile Google Analytics Tracking ID: Please refer to this article to get a UA ID for your app from Google Analytics. (you may use an existing UA ID)

Mobile App Bundle ID: This is a unique identifier for your app on the Amazon Developer Portal. If you already have an old app on App Store and want us to submit an app update over that with a new Zype app, please add the Bundle Identifier from your old app. Your old app's developer can help you find this bundle identifier. You can also find it in Amazon Developer Portal.

If it's a new app, we will give it a new bundle id. You can enter the bundle ID in this format:- com.maz.tvod[your app id]. You can get the App ID for your app from the Apps Creator URL for your app. Please refer to the screenshot below.

Fire TV

FireTV Google Analytics Tracking ID: Please refer to this article to get a UA ID for your app from Google Analytics. (you may use an existing UA ID)

Fire TV App Bundle ID: In most cases, the bundle ID of your Fire TV app remains the same as the Mobile App. Therefore if you have generated the bundle ID for the Amazon Mobile app, you can copy the same for the Fire TV app.

This is a unique identifier for your app on the Amazon Developer Portal.
