To host an app in the Apple Store, there is an annual $99 fee and it is recommended to set this to auto-renew.
If you have an existing Apple Developer Account, you can migrate from an individual account to a company one. Learn how to do that in this guide.
Here are the steps to set up your Apple Developer Account and launch your app on the Apple App Store.
- To enroll in an Apple Developer account you will need a DUNS Number. Your DUNS Number will be used to check the identity and legal entity status of your organization which is a requirement for the enrollment verification process for joining the Apple Developer Program or the Apple Developer Enterprise Program.
- Before enrolling, look up your organization here to see if you have a DUNS Number. Dun & Bradstreet may have already assigned one to you.
- If your organization is not listed, you’ll have the option to submit your information to D&B for a free DUNS Number. For more details about how to request your DUNS Number, here’s the Tapcart’s DUNS Number Guide. Please note, this request can take a few days.
- Once you receive the email with your DUNS number, you will be able to complete the Apple Developer enrollment process form.
- Visit this page.
- You will need to sign in using an existing Apple ID or create a new Apple ID.
- Fill out your company and billing info. For more details on how to set up your Apple Developer Account, here’s a step-by-step guide.
- Apple will send a confirmation email within 24 hours notifying you that your Apple Developer Account was successfully created!
- Once your enrollment is complete, invite firstname.lastname@example.org as an admin to your account. Make sure to enable access to certificates, identifiers, and profiles.
- Once you have invited Tapcart, our App Launch Team will check your app for quality assurance purposes and will submit it to Apple.
- Once submitted, you will receive emails from Apple as the app enters the review and approval. Please note: Apple’s review and approval process may take 3-5 days.
