To upload your Asset to the Publisher Administration portal:
In the Unity Editor, import the Asset Store Tools into your Project.
Go to Asset Store Tools > Package Upload. This dialog box appears:

Select the folder that contains your entire Project, and then select an Asset to showcase within that Project. If you have multiple draft packages in your publisher account, make sure you click on the package for the Asset you are submitting. The Package Upload window shows the folder and Assets you are uploading:
Click Upload to connect your Assets to your Publisher Portal. The status bar next to the title of your selected folder shows the progress of the upload.
When upload is complete, the Editor displays a dialog box to verify that the package is now on your Publisher Portal:
