Business overview

To sell subscriptions on Apple Podcasts and receive payments from Apple, you must be a member of the Apple Podcasters Program. Then a Legal user with the authority to sign documents on behalf of your company must complete the Apple Podcasters Program agreement by submitting the required forms. You’ll be asked to disclose whether or not you’re a trader for purposes of the European Union’s Digital Services Act (DSA) in order to stay compliant across regions when distributing subscriber audio or Apple-hosted audio on Apple Podcasts. Learn more about the DSA.

Your organization’s legal entity, tax, and banking information must be provided. U.S. tax forms are required, and tax forms for additional countries may be required.

Provide legal entity information

The legal entity information you provide should match your tax and business documents.

  1. In Apple Podcasts Connect, select the Business tab.
  2. Click Add a Legal Entity.
  3. Enter a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, if you like. Click Next.
  4. Enter your legal entity information. Click Next.
  5. Confirm your address.

After your legal entity information is entered, you will not be able to make changes. Contact our legal department to update your information.


In the Business tab, click on your legal entity. In the Agreements section, verify the Action column 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.

Legal entity name and address changes

Deactivate your account

When you terminate your account, you will no longer be able to submit or manage podcasts, manage your account, access sales or financial reports, receive Apple Podcasts news and announcements, distribute podcasts on Apple Podcasts, and more. Before terminating your account, download any sales, financial, or catalog reports from Apple Podcasts Connect for your own records and remove clearances for your shows.

To terminate your account, submit a request. Be sure you provide us with at least 30 days notice and note whether you intend to continue using your Apple ID on another account.

Invoices and tax statements

Invoices and tax statements are located in the Business section of Apple Podcasts Connect in the Earnings tab. You can find monthly recipient-created tax invoices available for download in select countries or regions. Recipient-created tax invoices are not applicable in all countries or regions. If you do not see any invoices in this tab, you do not have any recipient-created tax invoices available for download in your country or region.
