I actually have 3 questions, but the one in the title is the main one.

  1. As I was trying to register, I have entered my apple ID and that takes me to a page where I can edit my contact info. I can change everything, except my name, which I would need to change, since somehow there is a wrong name there. (It is actually an old name which I have changed and if I go to "manage my apple ID" page I can see the new name, just the developer site still has the old one). Since they will probably be checking that against information on my credit card this could be a problem.

  2. Even though I am registering as an individual, there is still a field for company name and it has to be filled. What do I put there?

  3. This would probably be more of a question for apple directly, but in case someone knows, can I use a pseudonym to be shown as the "app seller", because I would rather have that than my full name there.

I tried to contact apple about these issues, but it seems that you need to be registered there to receive any support.

Thanks in advance!

Put your name again.

Did that, thanks! – CcY Nov 28 '11 at 10:48

To have a company name as seller name in all places in the App store, you need to enroll as a company. In order to enroll as a company, you will need to have valid state incorporation papers under the company name.

Yeah, that I understand, but since I don't have a company I'm enrolling as an individual and just don't like having my name all over the place. It's not a big deal really, just thought if it's possible... – CcY Nov 28 '11 at 10:51
