If the My Connect menu is not available in your Zuora tenant, contact Zuora Global Support. Include your tenant's ID and environment type in the request.

Purchase an App

To purchase an app for your organization, click Purchase on the app's overview page. Zuora will then contact you with information about completing the purchase and setting up the app.

You must have a Zuora Connect account to purchase apps in the Connect Marketplace. To sign up for Zuora Connect, visit https://connect.zuora.com/users/register.

Purchased apps can be used by all of your organization’s Zuora administrators and Zuora standard users. See the "Control Access to My Connect" section for more information.

To view the apps that have been purchased for your organization, navigate to My Connect > Purchases.

Link Your Zuora Tenant and My Connect

Before you can install any Apps in your Zuora tenant, you must link your Zuora tenant with your Zuora Connect account. This step grants apps permission to access your Zuora tenant. The authentication credentials for your Zuora tenant will be stored in a Zuora Connect login.

To create a Zuora Connect login for your Zuora tenant:

  1. In Zuora Connect, navigate to My Connect > Tenants, then click New Login and select Zuora:

  3. Click Save Login.

You are now ready to install apps in your Zuora tenant.
