Add support of SharePoint Framework solution packages to the AppSource Store
The latest adjustments in the Microsoft Store police allows store's add-in to works with conjunction with another add-in that is available only from the provider. The solution package (.sppkg) build with SharePoint framework is not classified as 'add-in'. Thus, we cannot add add-in in the Store that depend on SPFx solution and there is no way of delivering customizations to the modern page.
I can offered two options for solving this issue: 1) Adjustment of point 4.18 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/store/validation-policies#bk_4) from the Store policy to allows SPFx modifications 2) ApPSource store to start allowing .sppkg solution packages to be added
Thanks for your feedback! We’re happy to report that your suggestion is now part of the capabilities which were released as part of the SharePoint Framework 1.11 release.
See more details from the release blog post – https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/blogs/announcing-sharepoint-framework-1-11-extend-more-of-microsoft-teams-and-publish-to-appsource/
We have also released specific set of guidance around publishing SharePoint Framework solutions to the store – https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/spfx/publish-to-marketplace-overview
We are looking forward for your submissions!

Good news Vesa.
This is great news Vesa! Will this be part of the newly announced "Microsoft Partners Center" update which will offer a new monetizing model for Teams apps? Or it's something totally different that will integrate with the current AppSource offering? And will there be some sort of mechanism which will block people from extracting the code straight out of the .sppkg?
Any updates on this?
Doug Punchak commented
This enhancement would be fantastic. I wonder why .sppkg files were excluded to begin with?

Any updates on this
