Re: Apple Developer Registration Hoops

Sure, for individual developers this is probably not the case, but if I'm not the dev and I need to hand out access to devs, then it seems to be required - at least if you want to play by the rules - to sign up as a company and then grant that access.

I'd prefer not to give access to my developer account to others, because I'd be using my Apple ID. Sure I could create a separate Apple account just for that, but I'd prefer to leave it all under one. I have more accounts in more places then I can handle right now. :)

I don't remember the specifics but I thought this was only required for enterprise account that want the ability to build enterprise apps that will not be distributed through the app store. Not sure if something changed but you should double check the option that you are registering for.

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.
