Hi guys,

I enrolled an Apple Developer Account since yesterday and it still pending. I wonder how long it takes to get approve from Apple? Please share your experience.

Thank you.

Mine was pretty much immediate, but I did have an existing account at the same address which may have helped.

It's 5 days now and I don't see any move from Apple :mad:

I bought B4i & an used iPhone 5S (which is expensive in my country), I even almost bought an used Macbook too (which is VERY expensive in my country). But I can't "Hello World" on iOS. That's why I hate Apple and everything related to it.

I don't know who can help me to register or at least help me to create B4i-Bridge to test my code. :(

I got the email for status of my enrollment in 2 days. My first enrollment was withdrawn because of invalid name (because i don't have last name :p), after two more attempt to edit my name and failed, i decided to contact Apple support for assistance and it's only took a day for my account approval and activation :D.

Maybe you should contact apple support for your issue (https://developer.apple.com/contact/).

Dear susu,

I also kept waiting for several days because of my registered name is different from my billing name. They asked me to send them my id copies for verification.

Have you contacted their customer service?

Me too. Maybe that's the reason? Ok, I will wait a few days more. Thanks for your share.

Finally, they charged my money and sent me activation code, I'm so happy to click on the link and...

"We are unable to activate your Apple Developer Program membership.
We have received your purchase information and will email you shortly to verify additional details."

Huh??? OK, I can wait.

12 hours later, still no email! What the F!!! Contact them to ask why and...

"We'll review your request and get back to you within one (1) business day."

Wait again!!! I had never seen anything like this sucking company. They took my money and all I got is waiting!

are you serious??? for what do they need your id photo??

for me it took about 5days (i cant remember the exact day number) but they didnot ask for anything..
are you sure you typed everything correct when you created your account??

You must use your real name and adress if you are not a company...

Finally, they approved my account after I sent copy of my ID. It's about 8 days with a lot of waiting time.

Yes, I'm exploring B4i. It's very different with B4A.
