No special guide is needed explaining steps to be followed to enroll into this program. But definitely some little things we must be aware while and after enrolling. Let’s see them here.
The Application we need to fill for this is simple and straightforward. We can start with simple sign-in and enter all necessary address and bank details.
The best answer for “Why Developer Account ” can be found here https://developer.apple.com/programs/whats-included/
In official documentation, Apple mentioned only credit cards that are registered with applicant name are allowed.
But Debit Cards from some countries like India are allowed too.
Check if the card you decided to buy with can be added in “Payment” options of “Payment and Shipping” with your apple id and can make a valid subscription with it.
No documents are asked while you place order and make payment. But if your payment is not accepted within 48 hrs then you must keep a valid document authorised by Government like Aadhaar or Pan cards.
Apple support is best place to resolve your payment and other queries.
The first thing you need to do if your payment is not accepted is writing an email to apple support team.
Then they will ask to submit documents. If your payment is not accepted again after 48hrs of submitting documents then again don’t wait for a day or more. Simply write a mail to Apple Support team. They will escalate your case.
The only cost in contacting support team is 48 hrs or more time to get a reply.
Note: I am from India. These thoughts may not exactly match if you are from different countries as we know Apple Policies varies from one region to other.
Thanks for reading. Happy developing…
