They do a company check which can take a couple of days. Then just pay your $$$ and you are done.

Allard,

If you sign up as a company it is more expensive and you have to prove that you are a legitimate company with a Dun & Bradstreet number. This process can take weeks.

If you sign up as an individual then it cost $100.00 per yr and you can be up and running if a day or 2.

The next question you might want to ask is what happens when you are ready to deploy that app for testing and to the app store.

Hey,
for me the apple Registration process as well as the apple development process is awfull.
Just one Thing:

My Companies Name according to german rules used to be:
CargoFox Software & Consulting UG (Haftungsbeschränkt)

It is stored in the D&B database correctly ....
But if you Register on apples site, you can not enter the german "ä", coming from (Haftungsbeschränkt)

It took 2 weeks to sort that out

Other Thing:

I developed an app which uses webservices, and I want to use https to consume the webservice ....
apple says: you Need to sendd a yearly Report to the US government if u use https :rolleyes:

WTF ????

I could be wrong but I thought they withdrew the $100 account and it's now free. BUT (in capitals for very good reason) use the App Store at your risk!!!!

There are many many reasons not to use it but the most important thing is this ....

Unless you have an Enterprise account you are forced to use the Store. That means Apple verify your app for approval. They are not guaranteed to accept it. Also if you do get accepted then an update also has to be verified so any quick bug fixes could take some time (weeks or even months). Plus you must adhere to every demand Apple make on your app.

Just accept, if you really want to do business using Apple you have to pay big bucks and get an Enterprise account. If DUN verification goes OK then it is pretty fast. But as others point out, it can be a nightmare.

Welcome to the world of Apple. I absolutely hate them but my Clients think otherwise!

I never heard of that. What the heck is a Webservice to Apple. You are not using their services for your data.

However I dealt with this whole thing ages ago. I think what they are getting at is that if you advertise your app for $$$ then you are going to run into BIG issues with Apple. Just take it as read, its very complicated. The way round it (legally and acceptable to Apple) is to advertise your app as FREE using an Enterprise account.

That means that Apple are not involved in your sales whatsoever. I say my app is free to access the database BUT (and here is the workaround) to access that database you have to download MY App from MY Site and pay $$$ a month. In other words it is a SAAS model and all Apple are doing is providing a license to access the app via an Apple verification server. The actual software is resident on your site.

It took me many months to get it all sorted but in the end the solution was simply an Enterprise account and DO NOT make any mention of charging for the software so far as Apple is concerned. As I say this is all totally legal and allowed by Apple.

Plus Apple do not verify your app. You just sign a disclaimer that you will not do anything naughty in your software if using an Apple license.

This is a bit old, but I think still valid?

I thought Enterprise licensing was for in-house distribution?

von Mary User - am 21.11.2017 01:53
Yes it is. BUT Apple confirm that if you consider your User as the In House person then you can legally use that to distribute.

Having spent a long time on researching this with Apple and others, the only way to distribute professionally for a business with unlimited Clients is as I mentioned previously. An SAAS model, no charge for the software - just a charge to access the data (subtle but crucial difference) and an Enterprise account.

Registration as an Individual generally takes around 72 hours max as per our experience.
