Agreements, Tax, and Banking
To sell your books and receive payments from Apple, a Legal user with the authority to sign documents on behalf of your company must complete the Paid Books agreement by submitting the forms that correspond with choosing to “Offer Books for Free and Sell Your Books.”
After Apple verifies the information, an Admin, Finance, or Legal user must provide contact, tax, and banking information. Verify the Action column in Agreements, Tax, and Banking to see if there’s any more information we need to complete your agreement. Keep in mind, you must complete these steps to receive payments directly from Apple.
Your legal entity name displays in the Agreements, Tax, and Banking section of iTunes Connect. This is also the default seller name that displays on Apple Books.
If you’d like to sell books under a fictitious name or Doing Business As (DBA) name, first complete your contact, tax, and banking information in Agreements, Tax, and Banking. When you’re done, submit a request for a DBA/Pen name. You need to show proof of the desired name such as a DBA/fictitious business name certificate or license, or IRS tax document.
Upgrade your account
If you’ve been offering books for free and want to add the option to sell your books, simply request and complete a Paid Books agreement in Agreements, Tax, and Banking.
Company name changes
If your company has restructured, changed its name, or merged with another company, contact our legal department to explain your situation and provide appropriate documentation.
Deactivate your account
If you no longer want to offer books on Apple Books, your account can be terminated after your agreement has been in effect for at least one year from the effective date listed in Agreements, Tax, and Banking.
When you terminate your account, you will no longer be able to submit or manage books, manage your account, access sales or financial reports, receive Apple Books news and announcements, distribute books on Apple Books, and more. Before terminating your account, download any sales, financial, or catalog reports from iTunes Connect for your own records and remove clearances for your books.
To terminate your account, submit a request. Be sure you provide 30 days notice and note whether you intend to continue using your Apple ID on another iTunes Connect account.
