What's a D-U-N-S Number?

It's a unique nine-digit identifier for businesses. Think of it as a passport for your business in the digital world, essential for registering your Apple and Google Play developer accounts as an organization. This number not only verifies your business's existence but also enhances its credibility on a global scale.

Why Do You Need It?

Without a D-U-N-S Number, stepping into the realm of app development is like trying to board a plane without a ticket. It's your entry ticket to the app stores, ensuring your business is recognized and ready to launch its digital presence.
