Re: [newtech-1] Apple Developer Registration Hoops

Hi Anthony,

That doesn't seem unusual. Most companies require you to have a DUNS number in order to do business with them. The NAICS code is simply a government classification for what you are offering, it helps everybody to accurately categorize things, that's all.

Wow, another thing I learned tonight about the Apple Developer registration process for companies. You're required to have a Dun & Bradstreet "D-U-N-S" number, which take 30-days to receive by mail after the free application process. You can expedite the number in 5-days, but that's $49 for rush delivery.

Not only do you need a D-U-N-S for registering your company. Once you're in the D-U-N-S application process, you need an NAICS Code, which for web development is as noted below.

NAICS Code Description

541511 Custom Computer Programming Services

Sure, you can register for an individual account, but if you want to be an app developer, you've got to jump through a few hoops. Most of you already know this, so it's nothing new.

When I was at UNC Chapel Hill, we had to fax some documentation from the J-School to Apple to prove we were who we said we were for an EDU designation.

I know this is probably a much talked about process in app development circles, but for someone just jumping into it as a corporate entity, I didn't realize they put some hoops up for you to go through.

Not everyone can get through this process. It's probably a good thing in many respects, but I can see how onerous the process is just to buy your developer license.
