Frequently asked questions

Do I need to join the Developer Program to build apps?
Anyone can build apps on the Slack platform, but by joining the developer program, you gain access to exclusive benefits that are otherwise not available to non-account holders.
Does membership cost anything?
Nope! It’s completely free to join.
Where can I ask questions about developing on Slack?
We recommend joining the Slack Community, which gives you access to an international network of Slack developers, builders, end users, and designers that can help answer virtually any development question you might have.
Why am I being asked for a payment method when provisioning a sandbox?
If you're not a member of a paid workspace, a payment method is required for identity verification purposes. Don’t worry about being charged anything – sandboxes are completely free to provision and use!
