Requirements before enrolling

To enroll as an organization, you’ll need the following: 

  • An Apple ID with two-factor authentication enabled

  • A D-U-N-S Number that lets Apple verify your organization’s identity and legal entity status

  • Legal entity status, meaning your organization can enter into contacts with Apple

  • Legal binding authority, which means you personally can enter your organization into a contract with Apple

  • A website (we’ve got you covered!)

More information about these requirements is available at
