Apple Developer Individual Account renewal - 2019
« on: March 11, 2019, 04:57:55 am »
Hi,

I purchased a 1-year individual dev licence from Apple on April 2018 in order to have certificates for publishing signed DMGs for the Biblepay Core Client in MacOS, and also to be able to prepare a iOS mobile wallet to publish in App Store.

As you probably know already, Apple refused to publish such application because they don't allow it for individual accounts.

Currently our only alternative to create a iOS app is to acquire an Enterprise Dev license from Apple (priced 299), which requires to consolidate a company and have a DUNS number. At this moment this is not available so we stuck here.

I want to request 99  to renew the individual license for 2019 so we can keep our certificates to publish the Biblepay Core Client in DMG for MacOS.

At current prices ([email protected] and BBP=5 sat) that would mean 571594 BBP.

Thank you for your time.

I support you on this.


Are you able to publish to Apple Store at all? Would it say MIP on it instead of BiblePay?

I can't publish on app store (It would show up with my real name lol, not MIP), in fact to some point they even stopped me from publishing betas in TestFlight, so I can only publish to my own devices (internal test),

They state that only a publisher with name "Biblepay" is entitled to publish a wallet for "Biblepay", which is a bit silly because there is no company called "Bitcoin", "Bitcoin Cash" or "Ethereum" and many 3rd party companies are publishing wallets for them.

So my fear is that even if we create a "Biblepay" company, they take it to the next level saying that they don't publish wallets of smaller or not known cryptos. But in that case we have the option to publish wallets privately (this also comes with a corporate Apple license) which is what some companies like Binance are doing.
