I have developed a portal which I am showing as Tab in the salesforce. I want to publish my application and when user install in the his/her account, it will show that portal in the Tab. But, before publishing any application, I want to make sure which model should I prefer Partner Program ? ISV or OEM ? I have sign up in ISV model with personal email Id. but, looks like I am not partner. Until, I pay something.

There's a few stages to becoming a partner so your account won't just be activated by signing up online.

That said, OEM is not likely to be a suitable candidate for your app since you just want to expose something else via the platform, OEM is for when you've built a product on the platform that doesn't use the standard features and that you want to sell to people who don't use Salesforce already.

  • Ok. @LaceySnr. but, In order to use my application in the salesforce account as Custom Tab, End user must have salesforce account. and they will install into salesforce account. so, Should I use ISV ? if yes, How should I pay or become partner after sign up into partnersignup.salesforce.com/partnerSignup What are the steps ?

  • I don't know all of the steps myself, but yes, you need to be ISV, and you will have to pay to have the app reviewed and made available on the AppExhange.

I need to use partner with ISV model as our application is going to be used by existing salesforce customer.
