Interested in creating a mobile app for your shop? You'll need an Apple Developer account first! Read on to learn more.

CommentSold will partner with you to create a mobile app for your shop. However, before we can do so, you will need to create an Apple Developer account. This is a process you will need to complete on your own and is not something our team can do on your behalf.

Please Note: We can only work with Apple Developer accounts registered as a Company/Organization, not those registered as an Individual/Sole Proprietor. If you operate as a sole proprietorship and wish to form an LLC to register your Apple Developer account as a Company, here is a resource that can help you with that process.

Before You Get Started


Once you have your LLC, you'll need to gather the following information to register your Apple Developer Account under your business:

  • DUNS Number. You must register for a DUNS number using your business's legal name (not an individual's name). You can apply for a DUNS number (or look up your number) here. It can take up to 30 days to receive your DUNS number.
  • Apple ID with Two-Factor Authentication. Your Apple ID information must be valid and up to date — including, but not limited to, your first name (given name), last name (family name), address, phone number, trusted phone number, and trusted devices.You will also need to enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for this Apple ID. Learn how to enable 2FA here.
  • Website. If you don't have a custom domain, then you can use your CommentSold Webstore URL. You can enable your webstore and copy the URL on the Shop tab of your Settings page.
  • Business Email Address. Apple requires a business email address for an Apple Developer Account. Apple will not accept a Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, etc. email address. We recommend using G Suite or Outlook for a custom business email.
  • An iPhone or iPad. You must have Touch ID, Face ID, or a passcode enabled. You can also use a Mac with Touch ID or a password enabled. You must use the same device for the entire Apple Developer account enrollment process.
  • Apple Developer App. You will need the latest version of the Apple Developer app installed on the device you will use for the enrollment process. If you are on a desktop, you can complete your enrollment in a browser window.

Step 1: Apply for Your Apple Developer Account


Once you've completed the above tasks, you can apply for your Apple Developer Account here. You will be enrolling as an Organization.

  1. Select Enroll in the top-right corner of the Apple Developer Program page.
  2. Review the items required for enrollment, then select Start Your Enrollment.
  3. Log into your Apple account using your Apple ID credentials.

Step 2: Apply as a Company/Organization


You must enroll as a Company/Organization for CommentSold to create and manage your app.

  1. Select Company/Organization from the drop-down.
  2. Review the requirements for enrollment.
  3. Select Continue in the bottom-right corner of the page.

Step 3: Enter Business Details


  1. Enter your business name in the Legal Entity Name. Your Legal Entity Name must match what DUNS has on file EXACTLY, or you will get an error.
  2. Enter your DUNS number in the D-U-N-S Number field.
  3. Enter your CAPTCHA code in the field provided.
  4. Select Continue in the bottom-right corner of the page.

Step 4: Confirm Your Authority


Apple may prompt you to provide additional details about your company, such as your business address. Complete these fields, then scroll to the bottom of the page.

 Here you'll be asked to confirm that you have the authority to sign legal agreements. This is where you will enter your business email address.

Step 5: Place Your Order


On the next page, you will see a summary of all the information you just entered. After you confirm that all of your info is correct, you can place your order.

When you log in to your Apple developer account, it might still say that your enrollment is processing. That is okay! It generally takes a few hours to fully process.

What Next?


Once your enrollment is complete, you can enter information from your new Apple Developer Account in CommentSold through the Mobile App creation process. Learn more here.
