ATTENTION: To open the Developer account in the Apple Store, the store itself requires that the account be opened by an Apple device. In other devices, it will not be possible. An Apple device (IOS) is required to perform the 2 Factor security operation.
Individual Accounts with Apple only accept one admin.

Some of the latest versions of IOS and MacOS require this additional information to protect your information.

There are two options  when creating an APP account: Individuals or Business.

  • Business accounts can take up to 40 days for the process to be completed. (Company is visible in the store) You can have multiple administrators
