How to create an Apple Developer Account

You may need to set up a developer account if you have purchased the 'Standalone App' . Please note that if you already have an Apple Developer account with a live App, you will not need to create a new one.

STEP 1: Get a D-U-N-S number

To set up your Apple Developer Account, you will first need to get a D-U-N-S number.

Please note;

D_U_N_S number is a unique nine-digit number that identifies business entities on a location-specific basis. Assigned and maintained by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), the D-U-N-S Number is widely used as a standard business identifier.

If you do not already have a D-U-N-S number, please follow the links below to get one. If your country is not listed, in a search engine search for "D-U-N-S number" with "Your Country."

STEP 2: Create your Apple Developer Account

You can follow the link below to create your developer account. 

Follow these steps to create your Apple Developer Account;

  1. Create an Apple ID. If you already have an Apple ID, you can log in. Your Apple ID will need two-factor authentication turned on. To learn more about two-factor authentication, click here
  2. Agree to the 'Terms and Conditions'
  3. You will then be asked to choose with which "Entity" you will develop the app. You must create the account as a Corporate/Organization . Selecting another option will lead to delays 

Please note;

You must create the account as a Corporate/Organization , if you have any queries on this please contact

If you apply for a DUNS number and/or for an Apple dev account as an individual or sole-proprietor, the request will be denied by DUNS and Apple. Glofox cannot offer support and help troubleshoot that step. This will create delays in the build of the branded app. 

4. You will then be prompted to prove that you have the authority to sign legal documents on behalf of the organization. You can decide to be an 'Owner' or a 'Representative'

  • As the owner, all you have to do is input your work email address
  • As a representative, you have to input your work email address. You will also have to input the first name, last name, job title, work email address, and phone number of someone in the company who can verify that you have the authority to sign legal documents

5. You must then give the organization's details;

  • Legal Entity Name
  • DUNS Number
  • The business' website
  • The phone number of the Headquarter' office.
  • Tax ID/National ID number of the business (optional)

You will be prompted to pay the $99 US/$149 AUD fee and will be given an Enrollment ID. This ID can be used if contacting Apple Support. You can also find answers to your developer account queries by going directly to
