What you need to Enroll in the Apple Developer Program
Organizations enrolling in the Apple Developer Program will need:
Legal Entity Status
To enroll in an Apple Developer Program, your organization must be a legal entity so that it can enter into contracts with Apple. We do not accept DBAs, Fictitious Businesses, Trade names, or branches. The legal entity name will appear as the “seller” for apps you distribute on the App Store and Mac App Store.Example: Seller: ABC Company, Inc.
A D-U-N-S Number
Your organization must have a D-U-N-S Number so that we can verify your organization’s identity and legal entity status. These unique nine-digit numbers are assigned by Dun & Bradstreet and are widely used as standard business identifiers. You can check to see if your organization already has a D-U-N-S Number and request one if necessary. They are free in most jurisdictions.
Legal Binding Authority
As the person enrolling your organization in the Apple Developer Program, you must have the legal authority to bind your organization to legal agreements. You must be the organization’s owner/founder, executive team member, senior project lead, or have legal authority granted to you by a senior employee.
Requesting a D-U-N-S number (if you don't already have one)
The D-U-N-S Number is a unique nine-digit number that identifies business entities on a location-specific basis. Assigned and maintained by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), the D-U-N-S Number is widely used as a standard business identifier.
D&B may have already assigned your organization a free D-U-N-S Number. Before enrolling, use the D-U-N-S Number look up tool to see if you have one. If your company is not listed, you'll have the option to submit your information to Dun & Bradstreet for a free D-U-N-S Number. You can also go directly to http://www.dnb.com/duns-number.html
You will be asked for the following information when requesting a D-U-N-S Number.
- Legal entity name
- Headquarters address
- Mailing address
- Your work contact information
As part of their verification process, a D&B representative may contact you directly for more information (e.g., type of business,number of employees). Please have your business registration documents ready.
Receiving and Managing Your D-U-N-S Number
After requesting a D-U-N-S Number, please allow up to 5 business days to receive your number from D&B. Expediting your D-U-N-S Number creation process will not shorten this waiting period. If your application has taken longer than two weeks to process, please email D&B.
Once you receive your D-U-N-S Number, please allow up to 2 business days for Apple to receive your information from D&B. After this period, you may enroll as a company/organization in the Apple Developer Program.
To update your D&B profile, please email D&B. It takes up to 14 business days for D&B to provide updated information to Apple.
