I'm preparing to publish my first SharePoint Hosted app to the Office Store but it requires a format of .xap, .appx, .appxbundle, .appxupload

Only an .app file is packaged when I click Publish in Visual Studio. Which of the above files should I create and what are the steps to do so?

    Are you sure you're uploading to the Office Store and not the Windows Store? Office Store is actually called Office Marketplace and the Seller Dashboard is where you manage the Office Apps. Sep 5, 2016 at 9:50
  • Yes, I'm in the Sellers Dashboard. There was only the Office option and the Azure option and I chose the former Sep 6, 2016 at 23:00
  • .aapx ..xap etc are required for windows app. not sure where you are exactly publishing your app Sep 7, 2016 at 8:27

I think you are visiting the windows app store as .appx,.xap etc are extentions for windows app.
