PAD File Submission/Update
Use this form to submit or update your PAD files. All PAD files are polled daily so resubmission after an update is not required unless you want to change program category. All submissions must be compliant with the Submission Policy.
If you want to update the existing info, just resubmit the pad-file. The program info will be updated and overwritten excluding RegNow, RegSoft, eSellerate, BMTMicro, Plimus and ShareIt ID. If you wish to update the program’s RegNow, RegSoft, eSellerate, BMTMicro, Plimus or ShareIt ID please contact us manually.
Notice: We also do accept soft that is not being sold through RegNow, RegSoft, eSellerate, BMTMicro, Plimus or ShareIt. But you have no RegNow, RegSoft, eSellerate, BMTMicro, Plimus or ShareIt ID for your program, then there will be no “Buy online” link and no link to author’s website.
What is PAD submission?
PAD (Portable Application Description) is a standard of passing program information that make easier the registration of programs for the authors, but it also should enable the archive administrators to update the programs automatically.
In order to use the advantages of PAD, you must produce a PAD file (.xml) for each of your programs. For producing your PAD files in a simple way, you may use this free tool for best results: PADGen. Then, you can register your programs only with the information of the URL of the PAD file and the wished category in the archive.
By using the PAD files, you save time by having to create a description of your software packages only once. This description can then be uploaded quickly to all sites that support PAD submission. Webmasters can process these PAD files and extract the data appropriate for their site. They can keep the contents of their site current by polling PAD files on the web sites of the authors of the software they list.
