I already have an iTunes Connect account for another media type (such as apps, books, music, or movies). Can I use it to offer music content?

If you currently have an iTunes Connect account to offer apps or books, you must create a new iTunes Connect account with a different Apple ID.

If you currently have an iTunes Connect account to offer TV content or movies, or if you have an Apple ID that you used to apply to offer TV content or movies on iTunes and the application is pending approval, you can use that Apple ID to complete the music application.

Who should apply to offer content on iTunes on behalf of my company?

Should I use my own name or my company's name as the legal name?

If you’re registered as a company, enter the legal entity name. If you’re signing up as an individual, enter your first and last name. The legal name you enter should match the name associated with your U.S. Tax ID and Tax ID type that you provide with your application.

How will I be notified of my application status?

You will be notified via email. Make sure your account is set up to receive email from and check any spam filters on your email account.

If my application is accepted, in what countries or regions will my content be available?

After your application has been accepted, you can request contracts for all countries/regions in which the iTunes Store offers music. When a contract for a specific country or region has been finalized and all other requirements have been met, music that has been delivered with territory rights cleared in that country/region may be made available there.

Can I work directly with Apple or should I use an aggregator?

Aggregators are experts in delivering content to iTunes. For a fee, they can correctly format and deliver your content to Apple’s specifications. View Apple-approved aggregators.

If you meet all application requirements, you can sign up to offer your content by working directly with Apple. If you don’t meet the requirements or if you have other operational or financial needs, it may be best to work with an aggregator.
