Here are a few things to keep in mind before you register for the Apple Developer program:
- You need to enroll as an Organisation, not as an individual. For this you will need a DUNS number, Legal Entity Status, Legal Binding Authority and a website.
- The Apple Developer program costs $99 per year. If you are a non-profit or an educational institution, you can request to have the annual membership fee waived: https://developer.apple.com/support/membership-fee-waiver/
Enrolling on the Apple Developer program
- Set up a company Apple ID: https://appleid.apple.com/account#!&page=create
- With your Apple ID, start the developer account enrollment here: https://developer.apple.com/programs/enroll/
- Head to Users and Access to add: email@example.com as a user with Admin access so our team can access the account.
What is a D-U-N-S Number?
A D-U-N-S Number is a unique nine-digit number assigned by Dun & Bradstreet for the purpose of identifying organizations on a location-specific basis. Apple and others can use this number to identify your organization.
For more information about D-U-N-S Numbers, how to request one, or find out if you already have a D-U-N-S Number please visit the Apple DUNS Support Page.
Requesting a D-U-N-S Number
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. (You will have to log in with your Apple Developer login details). 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 will be asked for the following information when requesting a D-U-N-S Number using the D-U-N-S Number lookup tool:
- 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.
