How does ionic pro packaging work?

Do I submit the project files (source code) and recieve an apk/ipa file that I can simply submit to the appstore/google play?

without the signing, verification, linking, and all the other stuff each store requires you to do?

can someone be gracious enough to explain the step by step procedure from finished ionic project files to appstore, using ionic pro.

( i don’t mean the technical explanation ofc, I just want to know if its worth it to subscribe for ionic pro)

You develop locally, then commit the files to a Git repository on Ionic’s servers. The Ionic Pro service then takes these files and does all the usual things to make a proper app from these source files. Then you get the finished build to upload to the stores.
