Enrolling in the Apple Developer program

This FAQ takes you through the requirements that must be met before your branded mobile app can be published to the App Store.

Due to recent revisions in Apple's release guidelines, there are a new set of requirements that you must meet before we can publish your branded mobile app to the App Store. The requirements issued by Apple apply to all businesses and developers operating on the App Store—including your business and us. As a result of these changes, we can no longer publish the branded mobile app on your behalf, and you will need to enroll in the Apple Developer program. 

This feature is only available with our Premium package. 

If this is the first time you've read this information, please click here to see our complete requirements checklist.


The requirements include:

  1. Setting up a business website
  2. Setting up a business email address
  3. Registering your business as a legal entity
  4. Creating an Apple ID for your business
  5. Finding your D-U-N-S® number
  6. An Apple device such as an iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer to complete Apple's two-factor authentication process.

If you've completed all of those requirements, then you're ready to enroll in the Apple Developer program. Once you are enrolled, you will need to return to this checklist to complete the remaining steps.

Enrolling in the Apple developer program allows us to manage the day-to-day operations of your branded mobile app—such as handling app notices and rejection emails from Apple—it's your responsibility to keep your account current. Keep an eye out for communications regarding Apple's terms of service and paying your yearly developer fee.

What happens next

Within two weeks, Apple will call the number you provided to verify your enrollment—please make sure to notify the person who will answer the call. You'll then receive a confirmation email at your Apple ID email address with an enclosed link that you must use to confirm and pay for your developer membership. The cost is $99 billed annually, and we recommend you opt into automatic payments to avoid any service disruption.

Once your membership is approved and paid for, you must contact ProAgenda.com for an invitation email. You'll need to add ProAgenda.com to your developer account to grant us publishing access.
