Chinese app store landscape is highly fragmented, and much more complex than in the West.
For Android, Google’s monopoly on app distribution does not exist in China,
For IOS, the proliferation of jailbroken iPhones has weakened Apple’s grip on distribution.
Furthermore, the process of distribution is completely impossible for a non-native speaker to follow.

Unlike Google Play and the Apple App Store, the Chinese Android stores work a little differently.
The fastest option is to pay for a featured promotional spot or a pay-per-download campaign on each store.
Whenever you release a new update of your app, just send us the file and we’ll handle the full process of updating it on each of the stores.
Many popular apps already have hacked copies of their app listed on China’s app stores. We work with the stores to claim each copy of your app and ensure that only your official app is available on each store.
In order to prevent your app from being copied again, we also offer an app shielding service. This service works by repackaging your app to prevent other companies from duplicating it.
For paid and in-app-purchase apps some stores are able to transfer payment directly to an overseas bank account but the majority can only transfer to a local Chinese company bank account. SinoStep is able to collect payments from the stores on your behalf, handle all applicable taxes, and then transfer payments directly to your company’s bank account.
