Individual and Organizational Enrollment

Key differences between Individual and Organizational Enrollment

  • User access
    • If you or your client has an Organization account, he can give access to various users (through their email address) without disclosing the credentials of the main account and those users can get access to too. On the other hand, Individual account do not allow to add any users so one will have to give the main account credentials to developers in order to build an application(create certificates, profile, etc). One can add various users by assigning different roles listed here
    • Also, If you’re enrolled as an individual and add users in App Store Connect, users receive access only to your content in App Store Connect and are not considered part of your team in the Apple Developer Program.
  • Testers
    • Adding multiple internal testers is possible with organization programs but not with Individual one.
  • Store listing
    • With individual accounts, apps are listed with Developer's personal name while in Organization, they are listed under organization name. eg Company name LLC

What's needed to Enroll as an Organization Apple Account

If you’re enrolling your organization, you’ll need an Apple ID with two-factor authentication turned on, as well as the following to get started:

  • A D-U-N-S® Number
    • Your organization must have a D-U-N-S Number so that we can verify your organization’s identity and legal entity status. These unique nine-digit numbers are assigned by Dun & Bradstreet and are widely used as standard business identifiers. You can check to see if your organization already has a D-U-N-S Number and request one if necessary. They are free in most jurisdictions. Learn more
  • Legal Entity Status
    • Your organization must be a legal entity so that it can enter into contracts with Apple. We do not accept DBAs, fictitious businesses, trade names, or branches.
