Applying for publisher verification for your organization

To offer paid plans for your app or to include a marketplace badge in your app listing, you must complete the publisher verification process for your organization.

Publisher verification ensures that GitHub has a way to contact you, that you've enabled two-factor authentication for your organization, and that your organization's domain has been verified.

Once your organization has been verified, you can publish paid plans for your app. For information, see "Setting pricing plans for your listing."

To offer paid plans for your app, the app must be owned by an organization and you must have owner permissions in the organization. If your app is currently owned by a user account, you'll need to transfer the ownership of the app to an organization. For more information, see "Transferring ownership of a GitHub App" or "Transferring ownership of an OAuth App."
