8.1- Choose Your Program.
Select the appropriate program (Individual or Organization) and click "Continue."
Complete Your Developer Account Information
Fill in the required information for your developer account, including your legal entity name and contact information.
What account type should I use?
An individual account only allows for a single primary login to be created to the iOS Developer Account. Also, the developer name that will be made public (on the App Store) will be your First and Last name. Sign up for an individual account only if your app is branded to you as an individual.
A company/organization account allows for multiple user logins to be created and managed with varying permissions capabilities for each login. The developer name that will be made public will be your company or organization’s name.
Enrolling in the correct account, or entity type, is vitally important to getting your app submitted and approved by Apple. Not sure which account type to enroll as? It all boils down to what your app’s content is for, and what it’s branding is set to.
Using Tony Stark of the Avengers as an example, let’s say he built an app about himself called “Tony Stark’s App”. Not as creative as his Iron Man suits, but it does the job, and everything in that app is related to him as an individual person. Then he could enroll as an individual. But let’s say he made an app for his company Stark Enterprises, or a charitable organization that he created. He’d have to enroll as a Company/Organization for that app since it’s created specifically for his company or organization.
Enrolling as a Company/Organization will require providing a Dun and Bradstreet number.
