Why can’t I go with an individual account?
There are a few reasons why we no longer operate with individual iOS developer accounts:
- There are technical obstacles (such as the limitation to properly add moderatos to the individual account) that prevent a third-party developer company to properly manage an individual account.
- There are legal limitations to the submission of an app that represents a legal entity under an individual account and most of the apps that are published with Shoutem are in one way or another represent legal entities
Yes. It is also mandatory to have your own Android developer account. This account costs $25 USD as a one-time fee.
