One of the most common causes for Apple Developer accounts being blocked is Apple releasing a new Developer Agreement. You, as the account owner, will need to accept their new terms to prevent or reverse this.

 

Every 6-12 months, Apple updates its legal terms for Developers. These updated terms are non-negotiable and must be accepted by the owner of the Apple Developer account (that's you!).

 

Once Apple's legal terms are updated, you will need to accept their new terms as soon as possible. If you do not accept these agreements, it can block CommentSold from making vital updates to your app, or get your Developer Account altogether blocked.

 

If you have a mobile app with CommentSold and we have informed you that your account is blocked, don't worry. Typically, this is a result of these legal updates. Often this is resolved by simply accepting Apple's new terms!

 

To accept the new terms, log in to your Developer account at developer.apple.com.

 

You will see a  banner at the top of the screen notifying you that the Apple Developer License Agreement has been updated. Click on the Review Agreement button from the banner.

 A popup will appear where you can review the new terms. When you're ready to accept, check the box to confirm you've read and agree to be bound by the new license agreement. Then, click I Agree.

Once you've done this, the banner warning at the top of the screen should be gone!

 

This is all you have to do to resolve a blocked account due to new legal terms. If there is a banner in your CommentSold account informing you of the issue, you can dismiss it (otherwise, we will remove it as soon as our system performs a check-in on your mobile app status). Any pending update or new app release is now unblocked and will proceed normally again.
