I have a signed bar file, what should I do next?

I have a signed bar file and I want to upload this file to vendor approval process.

 

What should I do next? Can I use this signed bar file or I need a ZIP? Somewhere I've read something about a zip file.

 

I'm totally lost. I was searching on this board but I haven't found anything useful for me.

The BAR file is a ZIP file with a .bar extension.  All you need is to upload the BAR file.

I think I also need a description, and icon and some screenshots, isn't it?

 

To upload I must go to Vendor Portal -> Manage Product -> Add product.., isn't it?

 

If I do that, I have send my app to vendor approval process, isn't it?

Yes, product name, description, large icon, product images.  You need to decide on your pricing model (free, try+buy, buy).  You also might have to answer some questions about content and user data.

It's taking too long to process my BAR file (one hour and continues).

 

I've uploaded as a FileBundle at step 4. Is that correct?

Re: I have a signed bar file, what should I do next?

If you scrolled the bottom and hit upload then yes, it sounds like you've done it correctly. However, unless you have a huge app or really, really slow connection i don't see why it would take that long....

Bar is 13MB, and it's uploaded, but there is an Ajax dialog screen saying: Processing File, Please Wait.

I'm doing a New Release Submission. Is this correct?
