How to create an AppStore Developer Account
You’re going to need:
1. Apple ID – Apple Authentication Email
2. D.U.N.S. Number (DATA UNIVERSAL NUMBERING SYSTEM) is a unique 9 digits identification number of a legal entity, valid internationally. You can get this DUNS number here: Dun&Branstreet.
What you need for registration:
- The official name of the institution / association / operator;
- Office address;
- Official email address;
- A contact person.
Duration of obtaining the DUNS number: varies between 5 days and 2 weeks.
Once you have requested a DUNS number, you will generally need to wait 5 business days to receive it. If your request takes more than 2 weeks, you will need to contact Dun & Branstreet by email.
After receiving your DUNS number, you will have to wait another 1-2 business days for Apple to receive the information from Dun&Branstreet. Then you will be able to continue the account creation process in the App Store.
If you need to update the information in your Dun & Branstreet account, you have to send an e-mail with the new data and in the next 2 days it will be updated and sent to Apple.
- Requesting the DUNS number is free
