Publishing and selling iOS apps - can it be done from here?

When I published my game to the Android Play Store I discovered that South Africans aren't allowed to create merchant accounts, and thus can't sell games or IAPs.

Before I spend any more money trying to publish my game on iOS, I just want to confirm that it's possible to create the iOS equivalent of a merchant account and sell games from here.

  • I can confirm that it is possible to sell games on iOS as a South African legal entity. I'm not sure if it's easier as an individual or a company, but I am sure it's possible as a private company, aka (Pty) Ltd. Apparently a CC isn't recognised by Apple. Apple's system is structured differently so they don't have the same problem Google does.
  • Yep, iOS publishing is no problem from SA. There are the usual company registration hoops to jump through to link up local and international systems (DUNS number specifically, http://www.dnb.com/about-dnb/15145059-1.html), but other than that it's all relatively straightforward. You can go in as an individual or as a company, all of that starts here: https://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/
