Here is a case we get quite often from users:
A user get in touch with us and says:
“I never put my app on the Chinese market but I still see traffic from China and I don’t know how can that be?!”
A possible answer to this question is that your app is already on the Chinese market without you knowing it. Congrats!
The situation on the Chinese market is that a store is interested in having good quality popular apps on their platform. This obviously brings in more users and more downloads.
So, stores editors would search for popular apps, download them and add them to their store. So, your app actually exists unofficially in China and this is how it’s treated. On some of the stores such an app would have an “official” mark next to it.
