Create an Apple Developer Account

Before Opening an Apple Developer Account: It is required by Apple to have a unique (Business) developer account for each app you submit (It is recommended that the 'team name'/business name will be identical to the app name.) Meaning, the owner of the apple developer account must be the owner of the app which is being submitted. Third party members can not submit an app in their account on behalf of someone else e.g. reseller accounts.

Apple will enforce this heavily and will require documentation showing the explicit connection between the apple developer account, app owner and all of its content.

You will need to have ready once the app is submitted, a signed PDF including the logo, names, signatures etc. showing the above is true. Should you have any further questions about this process, feel free to contact our support at

To submit an app to the Apple App Store, you first need to set up a developer account. To submit your app as a paid app, you will also need to set up a Paid Applications Contract with the Apple App Store.

: For this account, Apple charges an annual fee of $99. It is required by Apple to have a unique developer account for each app you submit (We recommend that the 'team name' will be identical as the app name).
