What is the ManyChat App Store?

The ManyChat App store offers a plethora of ManyChat-approved apps that can enhance your customer’s experience when engaging with your bot while improving the backend of your marketing initiatives.

From collecting reviews and loyalty cards to gamification and appointment setters, the ManyChat App store showcases a variety of tools you can easily connect with to your bot. 

How are apps selected for the ManyChat App store? 

The apps listed in the ManyChat App store go through an internal review process. We do offer developer tools to all customers who manage at least one Pro account to help create an app for the App Store. Third-party developers are welcome to create an app that they find useful to ManyChat users. Again, it will go through the ManyChat review process.

When submitting an app, developers need to submit the following: 

  • Video demo
  • Flow example
  • How to guide

What’s the difference between the developer and public app? 

Changes that developers make with dev apps are applicable in real-time. That means you will receive updates quickly but as it’s a dev version both developers and ManyChat cannot guarantee that updates are “bug-free”.

How to install an app from the ManyChat App Store

Installing an app from the ManyChat App Store is straightforward and can be done in four simple steps.  

Step 1 – App overview 

Check App Name and it’s the description. 

Step 2 – Choose an account to install

Why can’t you install an app? 

First and foremost, check your role and plan. At this time, apps can only be installed by admins and editors of Pro accounts. Also, apps can’t be installed twice to one account. In this case, the button to install will be inactive and read, “App Already Installed”.
