To host your app on the App Store, you need to create an Apple developer account. Please note that the annual membership fee is $99. To prevent account interruption, we recommend that you set up automatic renewal when you create your account. If you already have an Apple Developer account, you can move from a personal account to a corporate account.

Please note that you must register your D-U-N-S number before you can start registering as an Apple developer. Once the DUNS number is activated, you can start the registration process.

2. Select the ‘Start Your Enrollment’ button.
3. Sign in with your existing Apple ID or click ‘Create Apple ID’ to create one.

4. Read the Apple Developer Agreement, select the check box, and select the Submit button in the lower right corner to continue.

5. Under ‘Select Entity Type’, you must enter Company / Organization in this drop-down list and select ‘Continue’.

Note: Do not register as an "Individual / Sole Proprietor". It is very important to register as a "Company / Organization" as personal accounts cannot be supported.

6. Enter the information about your organization under "Tell us about your organization". Enter Your Legal Entity Name and D-U-N-S number provided in the DUNS confirmation email. If you don't know your DUNS number or if you haven't got one yet, you can get it free by filling in your company details in this link:
